One Room Challenge: Country Bedroom

April 2, 2015 at 5:19 AM 8 comments

Alright, I’m going to give Linda’s brilliant idea to decorate a room in six weeks another shot!  It feels like yesterday I completed my mom’s pool house for the last one room challenge; you can see the final reveal here:

And yet here I am again going to give this whole world wind decorating thing another go.  I have missed the action of completing a room in one fell swoop.

This time, my lovely subject is a small bedroom in a 100 year old Victorian home in the country. I’ve already got a bit of a One Room Challenge fail as I don’t have pics of the room for you today.  You see the room is actually quite a drive for me and I can’t seem to find my pics from when I was last there.  I promise you will be getting the before photos of the room in the next couple of weeks.

For now we’ll let your imagination take over, picture this – a blank slate – cream walls, two rather large windows with beautiful matchstick blinds that look out onto a picturesque garden, a peaceful morning light shines brightly through the windows right onto a queen bed that is sitting on a metal frame, in desperate need of a spruce up.

The room needs some country loving.  So here we goooo….



What the room needs is a headboard, bedding, bedside tables, art and bedside lamps.  I fell hard for that duvet which is from Ikea of all places and so I built the design around that.  I have presented my plan but of course there always is tweaking that needs to be done.  Next week I’ll be back with the feedback and what was changed.

Please go cheer on the other linking participants here.
