Who’s ready for another One Room Challenge?! Okay, I’m hilariously unprepared, but a lot can happen in six weeks. Some of you may remember me redecorating my boyfriend’s living room in New York this time last year. A lot has changed since then — we bought a townhouse in Dallas and moved in together — and this time around I’ll be decorating our guest bedroom and the powder room across the hall. I can’t wait to get it looking pretty for our next round of guests!
Here’s what the guest room looks like today. (SCARY. Keep in mind that we moved from two tiny New York apartments so we don’t have nearly enough furniture to fill the space!) The pieces that will stay are the scalloped headboard from my old apartment and the sconces I used to sell in my boutique. The pieces that will have to find another home elsewhere are the mirrored tables, the tall campaign dresser, and the random boxes we’ve yet to unpack since our move this spring. (Don’t judge.)
It’s basically a blank canvas right now (it’s so unlike me to live with so little color!) so I’m crossing my fingers that everything I purchase will show up in time for the sixth week reveal. My plan for the space? In the bedroom, I’ll be ordering new window treatments, replacing the campaign dresser (which I love but is too tall and skinny for this wall), replacing the bedside tables (any ideas?), hanging art and a mirror, and getting new bedding. And in the bathroom, I’m wallpapering! Well, hiring someone to wallpaper, because of course I chose a pattern that would be insanely difficult for me to line up perfectly.
I can’t wait to get started and I’m just as excited to follow along as the other participants tackle their various projects! You can see all of them here. Don’t forget to stop back in next Wednesday for an update on week two!
