Wooohooo! We’re in week two of the One Room Challenge and I’m slowly but surely getting my ducks in a row. This week I dropped off fabric for drapes, secured a replacement dresser, ordered mini chandelier shades for the sconces and lucite curtain rods for the windows, and started looking at new bedding. (If you need a refresher on where we started, check out week one here.) Otherwise, let’s dive right in!
The drapes will be in this Dana Gibson for Stroheim cobalt and white ikat Madagascar fabric with a navy border on the inside edges to tie in the navy headboard. (I love cobalt and navy together!) I ordered the fabric from DecoratorsBest and received my giant bolt of fabric the next day. I also ordered my favorite Dana Gibson for Stroheim blue ginger jar Canton wallpaper for the powder room. No surprise there! I have admired this pattern forever and can’t wait to see it in our home.
Now for the dresser! I am so excited about this piece. I worked with the amazing team at The Collected Eclectic Home (we met through Instagram!) who scouted this incredible bamboo dresser that’s the perfect dimensions for the guest bedroom. If you’re looking for vintage furniture in Texas (or want someone to paint or lacquer an existing piece of yours), I can’t recommend them enough. Isn’t this gorgeous?
Now we have to decide what color to paint it. Since this is our guest bedroom and we won’t be staring at the space every day, I want to go bold and pick a color I might not use in our living room or master bedroom. That’s where I’d love your help! I have a few ideas — we’ve narrowed it down to green, lavender, and orange — but I’d love to know which is your favorite now that you’ve seen the headboard and gotten a sneak peek of the drapes. Here are a few inspiration images:
Which color would you choose for the dresser? Be sure to check back in next week to see what I decide on and don’t forget to check out the other awesome bloggers here:
