It’s Week 5 of the One Room Challenge! Before we get into it, can we please talk about the image above? Major inspiration. I'm pretty sure this image is everywhere right now since it came out in Kinfolk Home. I love how bright, white and dreamy it looks. Also the photographer who shot this, Pia Ulin has an incredible portfolio.
Moving on...I can’t even believe it's week 5! I'm happy to say that my vanity area is coming along...
My intention was to add another shelf above or some art. Also, excuse the mess and the grainy photo. I hate posting poor quality pics but it's progress not perfection, right? :) I've already started using it and I love it. It's nice to have a space to myself that tucked in my little corner.
I’ve been super picky with furniture and accessories for our home but Homesense is killing it lately. Have you seen their rug selection? I’m also noticing some really nice furniture and lighting options. Is it me or did they hire a new buyer because I don’t remember their stuff ever being this good. View the goods:
Since I stole the rug in my office to put in my bedroom, I wanted a smaller rug to replace it. I think image one (top left) would be a good option. I'm also loving the one on the right. Can you tell I'm a sucker for graphic patterns? Also, notice that rustic piece of wood on the bottom left? It's a small bench my parents had forever which I've been meaning to steal for years, I just didn't know where to put it. Why discard something when you can breathe new life into it? It was merely collecting dust in their home and now I have the perfect spot for it :)
Oh and this patterned "blanket"? You'll never guess which part of the store I found it in. The BATH department. It's a turkish towel but hey, no one needs to know. What you do need to know is that I got it for under $20 and it’s a fantastic throw blanket (it's actually 100% cotton).
So here’s a quick update on what I’ve completed in my bedroom:
- new sheets
- new sheets & throw blanket
- bench (bonus!)
And where’s what’s left to do:
- the headboard situation
- style closet
I’m confident everything will get done by next week. I can’t wait to show you the afters, I don't think I'll ever want to leave my bed after this room is done!
