One Room Challenge Week 4

October 25, 2017 at 10:23 PM 4 comments

I wish I could hug Linda of Calling It Home because for the first time ever she gave us an extension – we now have seven weeks to complete the challenge.  Even though I’ve been low stress this time around, I could really use the week to up the ante a little.  And more time to obsess over the details, like a 20″ square pillow.

I left you last week with this as my final mood board.

Bedroom Final

I actually don’t have much to show because my seamstress is still working on the custom bowood duvet and shams and the custom ikat lampshades are currently on a FedEx truck somewhere in the middle of america.  And that pink pillow has apparently not left Turkey yet.  With the pink pillow possibly not making it on time, I got to thinking, perhaps, I should switch it up – so here are the other possibilities I came up with and you can feel free to put in a vote if you’d like.

Option A – Brunschwig and Fils Les Touches pillow

Option B – Alex Conroy Irish Tile Pillow

Option C – Seemakrish Glitterati Bandra Pillow


Until I have the actual lampshade and duvet in hand, I don’t think I can make a final decision.  As of now, I’m leaning option C.

In dream land, I’d go option C and then get a small slipper chair covered in Les Touches for the corner of the room, like this…

Damn, that looks so good.  That’s the piece I need to finish it off!!  But, unless the ebay Gods want to rain fabric down on me for a fraction of the price, I don’t see it happening.  Just another day in the life of me adulting so hard.

Next week, I should have more than just a mood board to show you!  Until then, lets start scheming ways to get me that slipper chair.  Go Fund Me? Pull my kids out of preschool and spend the tuition money on fabric instead?  Beg Oomph to give me that exact chair for free in exchange for an Instagram photo?  What would a millennial do?

While you come up with a brilliant answer for me, go check out the other participants here.

    I’m voting for Option A, with the chair in the same fabric as the little pillow as shown in the last picture. Or is that just tooo matchy-matchy?! It’s hard to see the Glitterati fabric on my computer, where it just looks to be off-white. Perhaps that fabric ties in the lamp bases? Really all so creative and lovely!

    Your kids don’t really need an education or supervision anyways. You obviously need that chair more.

    Yes to that chair! I have a chair almost the same shape sitting in my attic with the other chairs I hoard and would donate it to your cause….but there’d still be the $$$ fabric issue! For sure as a pillow though, it’s a good contrast to the gorgeous floral!

    I like option A. Looking good! I’m doing the challenge as well, thank goodness for the extension!
