One Room Challenge…Week 5

Oh week five, how did you get here so fast?  This ORC week was filled with high highs, my drapes are in and they are fabulous, and low lows, furniture delays…major furniture delays.  But lets focus on the highs first.  The drapes were installed at 10:00 pm last night and I couldn’t be more in love.  The mango-peach velvet pop of color is what dreams are made of and the tassels, well everything is better with a tassel.  They completely softened the room and elevated my office’s overall look plus they’re the perfect compliment to my modern Thibaut Tanzania wallpaper and horned sconces.  Drapes, done and done.

The second big progression this week was my AllModern Blu Dot Strut Desk which I’m equally loving.  The simple white desk is the perfect size and doesn’t distract from everything else going on.  However, because the desk doesn’t have drawers I did need to purchase a small rolling file cabinet from Ikea.  Also to keep my desktop clutter free I flanked the desk with my favorite Tini Table from Oomph to hold a few necessities.  And on a total side note I’ll be working with Oomph soon to create an exclusive, limited edition Tini Table so if you have any colors or shapes you’re dying to see please holler at me below in the comments!

Okay the bad-I-don’t-think-we’re-going-to-make-deadline-news.  A few of the major pieces of furniture, specifically my table and other shelf has been delayed.  The Knoll Tables are custom made and it looks like we’re a week or so out.  I only have myself and my procrastination to blame.  So next week at the final reveal, we may only get a partial reveal and have to take the ORC to week seven.  Chalk it up to the joys of design!  Truly, MKR
