One Room Challenge: Week three

ORCBanner Fall 13
Hello everyone! A warm welcome to anyone who is reading for the first time.  I can’t believe we’re already in week 3 of this challenge! Last week I told you that wallpaper would be going up.

My wallpaper magician. His applications are seamless and he came on Saturday to work his magic.

The room is a mess because I am in the process of painting

What the frank is this? We didn’t agree on this wallpaper! I know, I know. While I am still head over heels with the wallpaper in last week’s post, I decided I wanted to do something a little different. If you know me, you know that I am. not. afraid. of. bold. However, for the Master Bedroom, I want a little flirty, romantic, girly, light, and airy feel. While I am not a fan of overly floral things, this wallpaper does not overwhelm with its floral beauty. Also, the picture doesn’t show the beauty of the wallpaper. The final pics will be much better. The wallpaper is textured with iridescent white butterflies as the backdrop. Then there are more butterflies and cute florals in the forefront. It’s a vintage paper that I scored at a local wallpaper store.

The room was painted in Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter before. I decided to repaint in Benjamin Moore White Dove. I most always opt for eggshell finish instead of flat because I have to be able to wipe the walls (being a mama of two little boys). The White Dove is perfect because it has warmth and I’ve noticed that depending on the lighting, it  can also read as a subtle grey.

Although I am not finished painting, the difference in the brightness of the room is evident.

I posted this Anthropologie bedding as my inspiration for bedding on Instagram last week. It will be all about the bed in this transformation. I had already bought the wallpaper and this duvet has all the colours in the wallpaper. It’s beautiful, isn’t it?

Well I ordered the duvet on Saturday and  yesterday evening it was on my doorstep. I definitely ripped that box apart gleefully!

I raced to the room and just threw it on to see how it looks and my goodness, I couldn’t love it more! Already, the bed is the focal point and I haven’t even layered yet.

Each side has a different design and the vivid and pretty colours complement the wallpaper beautifully. It’s also very soft to the touch. Now, it’s  folded neatly and tucked away while I finish painting the room.

I posted this on Instagram yesterday to get feedback on whether I should get if for seating. It’s at a local thrift store and I envision it in some fab fabric. However, I still have that seating piece that I showed in the first post. We’ll see what happens… So far, the vote is to buy this piece. What say you?  You can click here to see week one’s post.

Feng Shui Elements, etc.

I will be posting about the feng shui elements in next week’s post. I am contemplating painting the side tables. I will be deciding on the knick knacks to be placed in the room. Also, I am shopping my house for the art, but also have unframed pieces that might also work. Therefore a trip to the framers may be in order. I need to find some fab table lamps. I am also on the hunt for a rug that will anchor the bed. Still so much to do!  What a lengthy post! Let’s see what the others are up, shall we? Blessings and Happy Wednesday! xx


  1. Hello, Hello Stacey!
    Thanks for stopping by earlier:)!!
    I love you being so fearless with colous and how you mix it all together beautifully. Love, love, love the duvet & your thrift store find has great potential. Wing back chairs are sooo beautiful and often comfy too.
    Can´t wait to next week- this is so exciting!!
    Sending lots of Love!

  2. Such a fun vibe and great mix of vintage / modern and varying scales. Your room already looks like it could be a page in Domino with that wonderful mix of elements and thats before the layers!

  3. It looks fabulous! And I love the quilt - nicely done - can't wait to see more!
    Have a wonderful day,

  4. I love that wallpaper. Your room is so bright! That comforter is fantastic and layered up will be great. Doesn't your room look even larger now?

  5. I think your wall paper is fabulous! Love this mix!

  6. I'm so envious of your style!! I can't wait to see what this looks like all finished. It's already looking great!

  11. Stacey, Everything is looking so pretty and the colors are perfect. I like your choice of wallpaper ;) and so funny that you referred to your wallpaper guy as a magician. After doing our powder room several months back, we learned that you always hire out for certain tasks! Can't wait to see it finished.


  12. Hi Stacy,
    It all looks beautiful! Love the bedding..
    Thank you so much for your sweet note and your visit. So happy you enjoyed.

  13. Love the element of surprise Stacey! I think it does give an air-ier feel to the space and mixed with the clean lines, the vintage vibe of the paper just becomes extra cool!

  14. The wallpaper is so pretty - feels airy and fresh.

  15. What a great mix, Stacey! Totally unexpected. I hope you'll show us a closeup of the vintage wallpaper. Very cool!

  16. It's going to be an amazing room ~ Can't wait to see it finished!

  17. Looking good! I can't wait to see a close up on the wallpaper. The duvet is fab! And I vote "yes" on the chair.

  18. ooo the wallpaper/ bedding combination is so very fun. I for one like the pink chairs just as they are. But I'm a pink girl!

  19. I am loving the direction you are going...the florals with that modern light fixture....and the bedding...wowza!

  28. Your vibe is a direct hit to the senses!

  29. Oh yes, definitely on the chair. I just tried to sell one I'd picked up on craigslist and was so happy when 2 people flaked on it. I took it as a sign that I'm meant to keep it and reupholster. Love how your room is coming together!
