One Room Challenge: Week 4

Apr 23, 2015

Wow - the weeks are really flying by and as we approach week 6 I'm starting to feel the crunch. By the end of today, all of the "major" reno items (installing the hardwood floor, baseboards, crown moulding and closet doors) will all be complete. All I will have left to work on then, in my opinion, the fun stuff...decorating!

Here's the room as of this morning:

I can't wait to see how it looks when I get home this evening as the crown mouldings and baseboards will be installed. Just those small additions will really have a big impact and bring the space together.

I've been struggling with which type of window coverings I wanted to go with. Initially I was thinking I would go with something different that would make a big statement; so I sent this photo from Pinterest to my trusted Mom for her opinion.
Her immediate response was similar to the thoughts that I was having deep down. Although I like aspects of this setting, and certainly think it's beautiful, it isn't really my style. It's not clean and simple and there isn't much white - all of which are themes that usually prevail in my decorating.

So I went back and looked through my Pinterest board for bedrooms and was only reassured that Mom (and my gut) was right. Most of the photos I had pinned were similar to these rooms -  light and airy with simple window coverings.

So yes, it's important to step outside of your comfort zone and experiment with new ideas and trends in decorating. But also keep in mind that you still want enjoy, love and feel comfortable in the space that you've created. There's no need to do something that's out of the box if it's not you.
