[design]: ORC Reveal Details


A week has passed by since the latest ORC reveals and boy were there some really great spaces! I did not have a chance to review everything as we are knee deep in gutting of our main floor of the house while still living in it, working full time and entertaining four kids so they would not wonder through the construction zone...

But back to One Room Challenge.. My master bedroom/nursery reveal was a quick affair - I just threw in a bunch a photos and called a day.. I must say that I was happy that I had a chance to complete this room this time around, after my first failed attempt, that I did not want to risk anything by taking the time to type things out.. Well, now I can share some details..

Let's start things off from outside the room as I had a chance to add a bit to the hallway several months back, but never really took the time to photograph and share, but it is on my to do list..

Once in the room, focal point is the bed itself.. originally, I was planning to have somethings more luxurious, but when we saw this West Elm bed, we just loved it. My plans included wall treatment with that long wall, painting it black and applying paneling. However, with everything else going on (reno/work), this just did not happen and this large painting had to do... 

I played a lot with existing dresser (on the left of the bed), night stand (not pictured) and side table (black) as I was not going to replace them as part of this challenge given that I still liked them and they served me well. 

We replaced existing closet doors and I made this little nook into window sitting area as this little tufted bench fit in perfectly. Window treatment in addition to blinds (hard to see on this picture) is DIY from some Ikea fabric. Pillows are mostly from Chapters/Indigo with exception of the very last one on the right which I got last summer from Target.

Bedside lamps are from Visual Comfort found at Home Sense/Home Goods for a steal which I updated with black shades from Ikea.

Bedding is combination from West Elm (linen duvet), Elte (gray linen pillowcases), Home Sense/Goods (silver pillow), black sheet set (Home Sense/Goods).

This makeup area did not work out as intended as well as I planned clear glass console table here in front of mirror to act as makeup table (not that I really take time to put makeup). I was not able to find this table so I resorted to shopping around the house and grabbed this chair and side table. I like how they tie dresser (natural wood tone) and area rug with rest of the room.

This is the view of our master bath and I love the reflection in the mirror and how both rooms work off one another.

Area rug is happy accident as due to our renovation I had to park most of the items elsewhere from our main floor. 

In addition to area rug I had to move our sofa as well and best location was our master bedroom due to its size. Here is second look at this side of our room with couch temporarily parked there.

That meant that I had to move the crib to the other side and this is how that looks.I just love those linen curtains and leather rug... 

I am very happy with the outcome even as I did not finalize everything I planned..
