Each Spring and Fall, 20 Featured Designers are selected by Linda Weinstein and the ORC team for a 6-week challenge where they each take us along on their journey to an incredible room transformation! This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the challenge included an additional 2 weeks of work time.
Inspiration and awe don’t fully explain the scope of emotions I felt while following along as so many talented designers took ordinary spaces and created extraordinary visions!
Looking back, it was my subconscious desire to one day participate in this event that sparked an interest and now our love of DIY. We’ve spent a great deal of time and energy updating and decorating our main living spaces, which brings me to the NUMBER 1 reason I registered for this round of the ORC – THE NEGLECT that is our MASTER BEDROOM! It’s time to give our space the attention and love it deserves and through the accountability of this event, it’s my goal to create a grown-up retreat reflective of our current home decor aesthetics.
So I have just a few (wink) ideas on how to transform our master bedroom, starting with a dark, moody accent wall behind our king bed. We already have a vertical shiplap wall feature, painted in SW iron ore, in our loft space.
The addition of new bedding, window curtains, and nightstand decor will be the finishing touches to wrap up this particular corner of our master bedroom. When Kaiyah (child number 2) was born, we moved this rocker into our bedroom for convenient nighttime feedings. Fast forward to a year and a half later, it’s time to reclaim our master bedroom and remove some of these items, i.e. the rocker and exercise bike. The fridge will be relocated to another corner of the room because this mama doesn’t like to be too far away from her ice cream or wine!
We have a gray modern sofa that will be moving into this spot and above it will be several wall cubbies, adorned with pretty things. With so many delivery delays, we took a proactive approach and ordered our Shiplap online from Home Depot about a month ago.
I will be working on sourcing my home decor pieces and purchasing as many items as I can in hopes they all arrive in time to complete our project!
