Project by: Kevin Francis Design
Week six – the big reveal – is finally here! Usually, the One Room Challenge season totally flies by, but this year definitely felt different since most of the project was done remotely. A HUGE thank you to my mom and little sister who unpacked all the deliveries, helped me set up the room over spring break, and thank you to my little sister for putting up with me while I Facetimed the photoshoot! She did a wonderful job on these photos, as you’ll see below… Back to the project, you’ll remember from my introduction that I tackled my older sister’s bedroom at my mom’s house. She’s a Junior in college now and it was about time to upgrade her room from a twin bed to a queen, and bring in an adult design and efficient layout for a serene retreat when she gets home! I settled on a green, blue and gold palette with some fabulous upgrades to the room from some of my favorite brands. Jump down below to get all the details on the space!
The workspace was anchored by fabulous green and gold table legs from PrettyPegs and simple white bistro chairs.
A roman shade from The Shade Store (fabric is Winding Leaves in Lapis) upgraded the window while a tiered brass table lamp and burl frame from Framebridge dressed up the desk. See all of the swatches I considered for the shade in my mood board on The Shade Store website!
A checkered pattern from Eddie Bauer sheets bring an expected pattern to the custom drapery (King size sheets happen to be the perfect length!). Brass and tassels add spunk to this corner of the room.
I framed two of my sister’s watercolor prints to hang by the Minted art shelves.
A blue tufted slipper chair (similar) provides a soft place to read or put on shoes.
A bright green pom-pom throw from Waiting on Martha brings variety to the palette and texture to the bedding.
Fabulous Elephant pillows from Shelby Dillon Studio are the fun focal point to the bed – a mix of modern and preppy that’s perfect for the room. You can also get a peek of the roman shade on the window from The Shade Store in Hampton 1 from their Woven Woods collection. Learn more about how I selected the custom shades in my post here!
Annie Selke’s Pine Cone Hill Trio bedding makes adds a traditional touch with a hint of French blue that provides the perfect complement to the forest green headboard. On the bedside table, layers of brass from the table lamp bring some pizazz to the scene.
A few key accessories – a marbleized vase for fresh blooms and a chic tiger valet tray for odds and ends – make the perfect bedside companions.
Installing this stunning brass chandelier was like adding jewelry to the ceiling. It was a major update from the dark, heavy fan that it replaced! Check out my guide to bedroom lighting to find out how I chose the lighting for the room.
So how fabulous is this gold-patterned cowhide from ArtHide? It’s a pale beige with a gold pattern overlay. Pure magic!
And that’s a wrap! I’m about ready to slip on those fringed linen slippers from Waiting on Martha and slip right into my sister’s well-appointed bed…if I were home, that is! Thankfully the ORC is ending right in time for finals season, so I’ll be on hiatus this upcoming week preparing for exams. In the meantime, you definitely won’t want to miss the excitement of hundreds of room reveals happening right now from all of the linking participants – head to Calling it Home to see them all!
