One Room Challenge | Week 4

Week F-O-U-R of the One Room Challenge!  I’m a linking participant, you know that, over at Calling It Home–thank you, Linda!  Check out the other participants and featured designers.

This is what is done:

Remember the Target table?  I did some stripety stripes on it.  It will go by the window seat.IMG_7946

The trim is painted!  Although it took them a good four coats to do it.  I love the red room from baseboard to crown.  It’s dramatic–and cozy, too.IMG_7943

Chris is busy working on the built-ins.  Can’t wait to see how that changes the space.IMG_7944

I picked up half of the pillow order from Sudi–such beautiful work!  Here they are in the sleeping alcove:IMG_7896

And the ceiling…I had hoped to show you that this week, but I had another idea!  Wall decals.  I know.  So they arrived yesterday and I figured I would see if the decals could give the same effect I am after with paint…bars

I threw a few on the ceiling to test–I like it!  No painting for me.  I’ll show you the ceiling strewn with the black bars next Thursday.  (I used 1″ black tape from Walls Need Love, which I cut in half to make 1/2″ bars.)

The rug comes tomorrow.  And once the trim has time to cure, I’ll hang the woven wood shades.  Those two layers will really texturize the space for you to see next Thursday.  The sofa also comes next week!  If only the Clarence House fabric makes it in for the ottoman upholstery.

Overall, I’m feeling good about completing the room in time.  Famous last words…


  1. The trim painted makes a world of a difference! Love where the ceiling is going and can’t wait to see the final result!

  2. Great work on the striped table! That must have taken a lot of tape!

  3. Ooh … that table is fab! You’re making great progress!

  4. You are one smart lady going with the black decals! And that striped Target table is just incredible! This will be one of the first rooms I jump to see the reveal on Week 6!

  5. Those decals – what a neck saver! Looking good…can’t wait to see it all come together.

  6. I don’t even like red and I’m loving your red walls and trim! Can’t wait to see that ceiling!
