One Room Challenge: Week 4


Crapola is the only word that comes to mind. Power to the procrastinators.  My travels are getting the way but, do not despair. I hope to pull out all the stops by the final reveal in 2 eeeeeeek short weeks.

Here we are already on week 4 of the One Room Challenge.

See Week 1,   Week 2  and Week 3 to get up to date if you are just joining in…


Decisions made this week…

Ceiling wallpaper is still not here…stressing.  I did find another replacement if need be that is FAB too. Kinda crushin’ on it too….


Wallpaper : Emma Bridgewater Wallpapers– Splatter

Marble Red blue from Spoonflower is too bold but would be divine on the ceiling in an Yves Klein Blue room

Gallery Wall above the desk…. See tips on a galley wall here.

Bed wall….

Linens. Lovely Jill Sorenson helped my with the linens. I decided on the cool Red Bang Bang Duvet Cover and Euro Shams.

Marmalade Interiors

I did not order the monogram shams.  They were not the rocker cool vibe but dang they are cute. I am seriously worried the Rolling Stones pillow will not arrive.  Lets just say that the French are not as enthusiastic about dates, blogs,  etc  (tears)


Progress on the cleaning out of the bookcases…We should open our own library…


Still really wanting and dreaming about this AMAZING Gray Malin Surfboard to Bo’s room.

It would be THE COOLEST wall art!



I will report back next week with more progress! I promise to give you more since the elusive grasscloth and supposed wallpaper will be up….

    Love the linens from Jill and your alternate ceiling papers. This room is gonna “rock!”

  • April 23, 2014

    The bedding you chose is perfect! Hope that wallpaper comes but your alternatives are great too.

  • April 23, 2014

    The bedding is perfect and I also love the first replacement splatter wallpaper. I’ll pray for you that the tongue pillow arrives- I’m having similar shipping issues:( And a huge yes on the surfboard!

  • April 23, 2014

    Deep breath b/c this is already awesome! Love the bedding!

  • April 23, 2014

    I love the bedding and was just dreaming about it for my own room. I think everyone is waiting for some random item that is taking forever in transit, myself included. Looking good!!

  • April 23, 2014

    The bedding is bang on. And I love the splatter wallpaper option. The room is looking great.

  • April 23, 2014

    Oh noooooo on the wallpaper! Let me say that DG kind of screwed me over and one of the rolls they sent was misprinted. Never had that happen before!

    I love the top splatter paper, and I love grasscloth so much I want to put it on my face.

  • April 23, 2014

    I so love all of your wallpaper selections, and the bedding by Jill Sorenson!! This room is going to be very cool.

  • April 23, 2014

    Good luck, Holly. I know you are burning the candle at both ends. The plan is great, fingers crossed for you. Londoners have their own sense of time.

  • April 23, 2014

    Nothing like the stress of a good ORC! I love those splattered wallpapers! And trying to do your own house while working on clients is causing some stress around here also:)

  • April 23, 2014

    you had me at bedding! That is just so beautiful! And I love the headboard against the fab wall color. I do love the splatter paint wallpaper. Can’t wait to see what develops next week.

  • April 24, 2014

    Don’t fret – I am squarely in procrastination land too! Fingers crossed the pillow and wallpaper arrive in time!

  • April 24, 2014

    Oh Holly, a splattered paint wallpapered ceiling will be amazing with what you have going on! Your bedding is perfect! Sending good vibes your way that everything arrives and keeps the stress at bay!

  • April 24, 2014

    Can not wait to see this rockin room!

  • April 25, 2014

    Loving your theme…can’t wait to see it come together!

  • April 25, 2014

    So fun and vibrant…really awesome. Can’t wait to come back and see more. Have a wonderful weekend…don’t work too hard 😉

  • April 26, 2014
