So far, I’ve not made a huge amount of progress in our bedroom makeover for the One Room Challenge. I have, however, done plenty of ordering, and listed a good chunk of clutter on eBay.
In case you missed last week’s post, here’s my plan:
I’ve been enamored with a stunning large-scale cloud print by JR Goodwin for ages, but at £930, it was never going to happen. Then I stumbled on a similar – but much more affordable – print at Society 6. The dimensions are different, but actually better for my space, and it’s just as pretty. Although it’s a US site, Society 6 offers free world-wide shipping, so it seemed like a no-brainer. That’s the one on the mood board.

Total game changer. I still like the cloud print a lot, but I love this painting on a whole other level. It’s oils, ink and acrylic on paper, and it’s pretty big – it would fit perfectly to hide the awkward mirror that’s attached to the wall behind the dresser, half poking out like a weirdo (there are pictures of that in week one’s post).
It’s by Alice Neave, who also painted the abstract oil in our living room. I don’t think I’ve shared photos of that one in this house, but here it is in our old living room, as part of a gallery wall:
It’s my absolute favourite piece of art that I own, and I’m so excited to add another one of Alice’s paintings to our bedroom.
I’ve also been on the hunt for a floor mirror. I had my eye on one at Cox & Cox – a full length one with a simple black iron frame. There are two issues with it: one is that is £260 shipped, which on it’s own might be do-able, but there are a lot of other things I’m forking out for here, so it’s definitely pushing it. The second is that it’s on back-order – it initially estimated mid-October, but now their website is showing late-October, and I’m not sure I can take the chance that it might be pushed back even later.
Instead, I found one at Ikea that has a similar black frame (albeit in fiberboard, not lovely iron). It’s a little wider and a chunk shorter, but if I hang it rather than lean it, it’ll still be tall enough.

Maybe down the road, I’ll upgrade to the Cox & Cox one, but for now, I’d rather save £225 and settle for the Look for Less version.
