This One Room Challenge is going to be very last minute, I think. It’s already week three, as in: the reveal is three weeks away. I’m panicking, mostly because the one key design feature of this bedroom makeover – the removable mudcloth wallpaper – probably won’t arrive until the last week, if I’m lucky. Because, um, I haven’t actually ordered it yet.

The removable mudcloth wallpaper samples finally showed up after a long wait on Tuesday. They’d been delivered to our neighbours, who kindly took the package in for me, then went on holiday for a week. A week! They were sitting mere feet away from me for a week before I could actually get hold of them. Gah.

Anyway, now they’re here, and they’re good.

It’s basically a toss-up between the two mudcloth-inspired designs, top left and centre. I thought I was set on the middle one, and I think I still am.

It’s got pink undertones which work with the rug, and it’s so pretty – more so in person than in photos, I think.

But then, this guy distracted me for a moment.

It’s a more literal take on the mudcloth trend, and I suspect a whole room of it might be too busy, but I do love it. If you’re reading this in the early hours of Thursday morning, weigh in before I hit purchase!

The other issue is the blinds. They’re a really pretty, soft grey linen stripe, and on their own, I love them. With the wallpaper?

Meh. It’s not terrible, but it’s not great either. I had them custom-made (i.e. non-returnable) a couple of months ago. I hadn’t finalised the rest of the room design, but it was already getting bright early in the mornings, and we needed a second blackout layer to keep E sleeping and me sane. So do I pay the money to switch them out with something else? I ordered a few fabric samples just to see…

If I did change them, I’d definitely do a solid. As pretty as those shibori-style ones are, they’re not a good colour match for the other navy already in the room. I need to decide today, though, if I am going to go for it. (Also, no judgment on the lack of ironing, please and thank you.)

I could probably use the existing blinds in the boy’s room, but that would lead to more redecorating in there, and I just finished that room for the second time in a year!

So that’s where I’m at this week. Indecisive, mostly. I will leave you with a bonus dog, for your viewing pleasure.

Now go check out the featured designers’ week two progress here on Calling It Home, and the other guest participants here. They’re probably way further along than me!
