One Room Challenge Fall/Winter 2021 Week 3

How’s your October so far? If you asked me, I feel as if I’ve been stuck in a slow motion video. Everything is moving along so slow! Progress in our One Room Challenge has taken a pause and while I was expecting to have wallpaper installed by now, electrical hiccups have been starting to show up. Luckily for me this clay rendering of our space will give you a better idea of where we’re headed.

Old house caveats 

While old houses like this (from 1938) have that charm of an era long long, many things have been needing our attention since we moved here 7 years ago (most recently the window$$$).

Window Work Before and After

The installation of these windows was in “Week 1” of ORC. The transformation is phenomenal! (Right: before, Left: after)

And now it’s electrical!! While installing the sconces our electrician noticed that some cables were not correctly installed and of course, if not attended this could bring future problems.

Needless to say this envolved a lot of holes in the walls and ceiling but also, more patching and plastering. So, goodby “already prepared walls”! 

On the bright side

Well, amazing products from some of our incredible sponsors have started to arrive and it feels so nice to open boxes full of beautiful products.

Our floors and I can’t wait to see the gorgeous Loloi rug roll out. The EHR-03 from the Ehren Collection was hand-tufted by skilled artisans in India and made of 100% wool pile. Its pattern and texture is what this whole concept is all about.

New hardware from Emtek has also arrived. This mix of brass and black definitively clarifies the recurring question from some of my clients: “can I mix metals?”. Yes you can!

Art from my beloved Minted has also made a grand entrance into my One Room Challenge project. The pieces that you’ll see below will be part of a gallery wall in the master room. Dare to guess the concept or main title of this wall?

While design wise there has not been a big change, I promise there’s a lot that has happened since the last week.

And while I schedule the wallpaper installer, go check the other amazing participants sharing their room’s updates. Also, let’s connect through my social media channels (Instagram, Facebook and Twitter) so you don’t miss any updates on this and other projects.
