ONE ROOM CHALLENGE WEEK 1 – FALL 2021 COZY MASTER BEDROOM MAKEOVER
I’m so excited to participate in One Room Challenge for the first time as a guest participant this fall! If you have not heard of ORC, it is a semi annual Interior design event where featured and guest participants transform a room of their choice. This event is in it’s 20th season which celebrates creativity, inspiration and their original ideas.
The ORC was started by Linda Weinstein of Calling It Home, and Better Homes & Gardens is the official media sponsor. The event is for 8 weeks where I’ll be sharing my Master bedroom makeover in my home.
We recently moved to our new home this summer. It is from the 50’s and our master bedroom doesn’t have a bathroom yet. Lot of things are still in boxes and I was just postponing organizing and decorating our master bedroom. When I saw the ORC opening for fall, I thought this is the best way to finish the room with a deadline! So for the next 8 weeks I’ll share the design process, DIY’s and fun decor elements to transform our room to be cozy and comfortable.
Here are the before photos of our Master bedroom
I’m not a grey color person. The house came with a modern grey paint all over! I like to have white and layer it with colors and textures. I’m sharing my plan for the next 8 weeks but I’m sure it’ll change as I start the work. I’m still in the process of sourcing few furniture pieces, finding the right color and going back and forth about the DIY’s I want to do. Here are the things I’m planning to do.
Here is the mood board with a rough plan of what I’m planning to do. This will change as the work progress in the next few weeks.
- Paint the walls white
- DIY wall moulding on the wall behind the bed for a featured wall, paint it green
- DIY rattan details to the sliding closet doors
- Makeover the Ikea Hemnes dresser
- Makeover the Ikea nightstands or source nightstands from a vintage store
- Change the lighting fixture and add wall sconces.
- Add window treatments
- Add bedding, decor pieces
- Find a place to add wall hooks for bags and clothes
I will add more details going forward with each post. Next week I’ll share the plan for each week. Be sure to follow along the progress here on the blog and on my Instagram! For more design inspiration, don’t forget to follow the other participants on the ORC blog.
