I worked on this black and white master bath project a LONG time ago, but I’ve been sharing it on Instagram and remembered that I never shared it here on the blog. Then, my client actually moved out of her home right after we had her first install, so I never got a chance to get professional photos taken OR finish up the last couple of details. It’s a good thing I took decent(ish) photos with my phone, so I can share them with you!
The ORC challenge has me so excited to finally get my bedroom together. Last week I announced I was joining the ORC challenge and this week I’m sharing my design plan for my bright, eclectic bedroom and some room inspiration.
As I mentioned before, I want my bedroom to be light and moody. I want it to be vibrant with color and a nod to nature. I love indoor plants and trees and plan to bring some in my bedroom.
I have in mind a neutral look that’s electric with bold texture and pattern, but also inviting. If you’ve been following my blog or Instagram, you’ve seen my eclectic style before, especially recently for the #FABFALLFEST reveal, but expect to see some surprises.
There’s a lot of “not sures” as of now, but I plan to have it all figured out as I’m out shopping for a few key pieces for the room. I definitely know that I want a long bench (or two smaller ones) at the foot of the bed, but if I can’t find any, I’ll do a chair and a small, round table instead. I know I want some fun art to hang on the long wall next to my bed, but also some smaller ones to hang above the right night stand. I’m also planning to paint my nightstands black and change the knobs to more glamorous ones.
Here’s some rooms that’s been inspiring me:
Okay, so I know this is a bit backwards, but I still haven’t picked out my paint color, yet. It’s going to be between a deep green or a deep, bright blue, but I haven’t decided yet. I’ll try to make the final decision by next week. (The first pic above has the paint colors I like.)
Here’s the projects I have to do this week:
find a set of chairs or bench for end of bed
corral all the fabrics that I’m using in the room
Paint nightstands black & change knobs
Finalize paint color and paint walls

So, that’s all for now, guys. What color do you think I should paint my bedroom?
Guys! I’m so excited to share pics from one of my recent projects!
My client gave me full, creative control of her guest bathroom, but the only exception was that I couldn’t make any changes to the floor or any permanent fixtures (like sink, faucet, tub, etc.). But, what I was able to do was more than enough to totally transform this room. Check it out:
And… a bunch of pics on my Instagram of small projects I was completing.
As you may know, I’m in love with small spaces and I’m on a mission to help you guys creatively decorate your own small homes. I live in a one bedroom apartment and run my business entirely from home, so it’s important that my home looks great and is functional for both living and working.
Now, that I’m done decorating my living room (well, sort of… I just have a couple more items I want to get), I can finally show you around.
(Above) Remember the DIY faux fur bench post I did a few weeks ago? Well, I didn’t really have a place for it. When I realized I didn’t have another side table, I put it next to the sofa and I LOVE it here. I can put a solid surface on it like books or a small tray and then it’ll be functional as a place to put drinks and other small knick-knacks. Then, when I need extra seating, I can pull it out.
I purchased the two furry pillows from Pier1 and the black and white cow print is from my shop. I’m making more pillows to put on the sofa. I’ll update you guys when they’re finished.
I love black and white, so it was only right that I chose this chevron rug from RugsUSA. It’s a 100% wool rug and is extremely easy to keep clean. I’ve already had to clean up stains from my dogs dirty paws and had no problem getting the stains out.
(Below) My canvas cow art from Kirklands is one of my favorite parts of the room. It seriously makes me smile everyday. It’s not a piece I would normally chose, but I fell in love with the colors.
(Above) My sconces from Lighting Etc. are so beautiful. The design is very unique and really stands out on my gray walls. I love them next to my cow print canvas art. So unexpected.
My sconces are not installed. I usually have really ugly black cords hanging from them for light but I removed the cords for photo purposes. I’m still in the process of having the wiring done (with my landlord’s approval, of course).
Check out the beaded detail.
I shared photos of my chairs on Instagram. I bought them for $26 a piece from Target. One was blue and the other was gray in a cotton blend fabric. The orange vinyl is such a cute pop of color in the space. I NEVER use the color orange, so everyday these are a fun surprise for me.
The beaded pillows were purchased from Pier1.
I am so glad that I used this system for my wall shelving. I purchased it from Home Depot and it’s been incredibly convenient. It’s only 12″ deep, so it doesn’t take up much space, but it’s still deep enough to put books, mags, accessories, and our TV on it. It’s also fully customizable.
(Below) I couldn’t find a pot at the right size for my plant, so I simply braided some yarn and wrapped it around the pot the plant came in.
