Aand the packages have started arriving (see the room preview with all the pieces here)! It’s always fun receiving mail, and especially so when it’s the decor for your One Room Challenge. As the pieces sit together waiting to be arranged, it’s interesting to see the room’s character build and its palette develop just from the pieces being together. Next step: paint! The walls are currently a horrible dark brown, and the room is in desperate need of some bright white. And the faux-bois wall needs to be covered (I wish we could paint over that, but our landlady is attached to it… she painted it herself!). After that, the room needs some plant life, and before I know it the six weeks will be over. Make sure to check out the rest of the linking participant’s entries on Calling it Home, and I’ll see you next week for the last-week craze!
It’s hard to make sense of things without the pieces tied together with the bigger pieces (sofa and chairs) but I love the combination of patterns and the collected feeling the room’s got so far.
