One Room Challenge: The Plan

Exciting news friends! I’ve agreed to take on a major room makeover as part of the now famous One Room Challenge. The room I’ll be tackling is my master bedroom. I haven’t given my master bedroom a makeover in five years. It’s been a while since I’ve shared pictures of this space, but long time readers may recall this is how it looked when it was photographed for Refresh Magazine in 2013.

For years it’s stayed the same and I’m sooooo ready for a change! A few pieces will remain, I’m keeping my gray upholstered bed and the gray benches that I bought two years ago, also the antique dressers that live in this space, shown below. I’m keeping the vintage Drexel Heritage pieces because they have value but they also add character and will help the space feel collected.



However everything else will be new and I’m excited for so much of what’s happening in here. The goal is to have a balance of masculine and feminine, also to incorporate many more modern touches because of the traditional pieces that will stay.

My jumping off point for the room’s palette is this piece of art from Minted: taupe, deep brown, indigo, and some green. I’ll also be adding a medley of metallic finishes too.


My inspiration spaces for this bedroom makeover are these below:

Modern, elegant, neutral, fancy hotel-ish.



Wood nightstands, contrast, touches of gold:

The plan is to tackle the big stuff first. Next Wednesday I’ll share all about the new flooring that’s being installed in this space. Goodbye carpet, hello hardwood! I’m also giving the corner fireplace a makeover, assuming all goes well I’m hoping to share that in week 3.

In weeks 4 and 5 I’ll share more details about the new furnishings and accents, and of course week 6 is the big room reveal on May 10th! I’m excited to be joining in the One Room Challenge with so many talented design bloggers, here’s the list of all the participants!
