Hi friends! How are we already halfway through the One Room Challenge?!?! In blog time, that means there’s actually less than three weeks to finish, because the photographing, editing and blog post writing needs to be completed in time for the final reveal on May 11! I’m kinda freaking out over here because we still have so much to accomplish to get this room done in time. What I’m showing you today is as far as we’ve gotten and so many pieces are still yet to arrive! I’ve been juggling out of stock orders and pieces that didn’t end up working or that couldn’t make it in time. It’s a work in progress for sure, but I’m still optimistic that it will turn out beautifully!
You may recall that I’m redecorating my home office and you can go here for a refresher as to what it looked like before and go here to see the design board and vision for the new office.
We’re going for a sophisticated and feminine space and this week, three of the main components to the room arrived from Joss & Main! The rug, upholstered bench and etageres have been assembled (thanks hubby!) and are in place.
These two etageres fit the wall perfectly! They are 80 inches high with four shelves to decorate. Each shelf is 12 inches deep, 36 inches wide and the height between each shelf is 18 inches, so lots of room for pretty things! I love how the corners of the top shelf curve to add to our feminine feel.
The bench under the window will provide additional seating, and the bright white is pretty and clean, although not necessarily kid friendly! We’ve got pillows on the way from Arianna Belle to adorn the bench.
But the real game changer is the Victoria Rug. It’s so hard to shop rugs online, but in person, this one in “spruce grey and black” is just that. It’s dark enough to ground the space, but light enough so that it doesn’t feel heavy.
It’s super soft too. Perfect for some tummy time!
Guys, I’m really crossing my fingers that the rest of the pieces make it in time and that I can get those pretty etageres all styled up before it’s time to photograph this room! Wish me luck!
