Because this is my first time as a featured participant, or any type of participant for that matter (thanks again, Linda for inviting me!), when I was planning the room, I tried to make it as manageable as possible and not take on too much. The last thing I wanted was to not come through with a finished room in the end.
And overall things are going smoothly. The good news is almost everything has arrived. The dining room has served as the receiving center for FTRB HQ the past couple of weeks…..
The whole vibe of the room is already different with the chair from All Modern…..
I’m in love with this whole situation. Here’s the side table from ATGStores…..
I’m also gaga for all the textures coming together…..
I can’t wait to put this linen bedding from Annie Selke’s Pine Cone Hill on the bed…..
I also decided to leave the antique night stands unpainted for now. I think it will add some warmth and depth to the room. (But of course, I reserve the right to change my mind!)
The one item I’m waiting on is the carpet (which should be delivered this week) and that’s causing a bit of a bottleneck because I need it in place before the two big items on my list can be done: assembling the bed and installing the sconces. So it’s going to be a flurry of activity around here as soon as the carpet arrives.
In the meantime, I’m debating whether to reinstall the drapes because I’m really loving the clean look of just the roman shades. To refresh your memory, these are the drapes…..
And here is one of the windows without them after the Farrow and Ball wallpaper was installed…..
What do you think? I think I’ll be able to decide for certain once all of the furniture is in place but I would love to hear your thoughts.
One last thing for today….. if you’re thinking about redecorating a room in your own home, one of our generous sponsors, ATGStores, is offering readers $100 off any order of $199 or more during the month of October. They have anything and everything you could possibly need (the bed, sconces and table I’m using in this room are all from there) so if you’ve been wanting to update a space, this would be a great way to get started. Head on over to ATGStores.com and just use the code OneRoom 100 at checkout.
I’ll see you next week and be sure to check in with the other participants. Last I checked, they’re doing some amazing work!
