One Room Challenge Week 6 The Big Reveal: Master Bedroom

ORClinkingparticipantCIH

It’s finally here, Week 6 in One Room Challenge (ORC), where I’m revealing my master  bedroom.

It truly has been a challenge and pleasure to participate in this six week interior design challenge with so many talented people!  Many thanks to the talented Linda from Calling it Home for graciously hosting the ORC.   If you’re just joining in the fun you can begin at Week 1 to see the master bedroom transformation.  If you’re a regular, thank you for coming back and keeping me going!

I set out to finish our master bedroom in this around of ORC.  I had made huge strides in the first few weeks of moving into our home before our second daughter Charlotte arrived.  However, if you’ve had a newborn you know very little gets accomplished in those first six plus months.  ORC was the jump start I needed to fully transform our bedroom into the getaway retreat I had envisioned.  Moreover,  I have been inspired by all the participates in ORC, your comments, and feedback! You’re the reason I finished my master bedroom in record time!

The title of this design challenge is fitting, because there are so many unforeseen obstacles and hoops you have to jump through to finish a room in six weeks.  Just because you’re on timeline doesn’t mean everyone else is on the same page.  For instance, I’m still waiting to hear back from Design Services of Charlotte regarding my estimate for my nailhead and fabric trim FAIL! Then there’s Karsey Glass Company that has my grandparents antique mirror and delayed several weeks, which charged me twice, and still hasn’t reconciled or refunded me the charge. FAIL!

However, those wall scones that I bought last week were a little more complicated than I anticipated to install.  I called Ken with Kelly’s Painting last week in a panic. He’s booked solid and couldn’t come until last night for an estimate. He saved the day and was able to install the wall scones just in the nick of time!

And now for the moment you’ve been waiting for… more pictures of the BIG REVEAL!

This Davidson College book was my grandfather’s with mementos of his days on yearbook.  I followed in his footsteps years later.

I decided to keep the comfy blue arm chair and found white and grey toss pillows to even out all the blue and match the antique mirrored accent table.

The green elephant I bought during a business trip to Taiwan when I worked for the US Senate. The shells I’ve been collecting with my daughters and remind me of our beach days in Sarasota.

 As you can see my DIY nailhead trim turned out OK GREAT! I went back and forth with the grey fabric trim, even my husband liked it one day and then thought it was too much the next. However, it is here to stay for now!

  1. What a beautiful retreat you’ve created here! I love how you thoughtfully incorporated so many heirlooms and family mementos. You can fill a space with pretty new pieces, but my favorite rooms are those balanced with meaningful pieces as well. Really makes a house a home. The headboard turned out lovely! Well done and appreciate the opportunity of ORC to meet you and get to know you through your blog!

  2. I just want to run and dive face forward into that bed, but I won’t because I wouldn’t want to ruin all of those pretty pillows! And that headboard is perfection–major props to you on that one! And I think the trim makes it!!! This room is so soothing and serene and has so many sentimental touches–perfect place to rest and relax for a busy mama! Xo!

    • Ha, Emilie I’m about to that right now! You’re too kind, thank you! Seriously, that upholstered headboard DIY trim was a pain, but not as difficult as I thought. That means a lot coming from such a talented designer! XOXO

  3. Oh, I LOVE it! What a peaceful space! Clean lines, still cozy and warm! Attention to detail! It’s beautiful! Job well done my dear!!!! 😀

  4. Sarah your room turned out so beautifully! So sorry you had so many issues – but you would never know it. The room is so peaceful and serene. I love all your little details. Enjoy!

  5. Sarah, your bedroom is so pretty! I love the sconces and art over the bed, the bench and tray, and all the special mementos that make a house a home! Plus the color scheme is so soothing. I’m amazed you got all this done with two little ones in the house! Looking forward to seeing your next ORC! 🙂
