This One Room Challenge is going to be down to the wire. The reveal is three weeks away, and the one key design feature of this bedroom makeover – the removable mudcloth wallpaper – won’t arrive until the last week, if I’m lucky.
BOHO BEDROOM MAKEOVER PLANS (WEEK 1)
The removable mudcloth wallpaper samples arrived after a long wait on Tuesday. They’d been delivered to our neighbours, who took the package in, then went on holiday for a week. It’s added a delay that I could do without.

But now they’re here, and they’re good.
Of all the mudcloth-inspired designs, my top two choices are top left and middle. But the middle one has the edge.
It’s got pink undertones which work with the rug, and it’s so pretty – more so in person.
But this one definitely distracted me for a moment.
It’s a more literal take on the mudcloth trend, and it’s gorgeous. I suspect a whole room of it might be too busy, though.
Nailing down the wallpaper brought up another issue: the blinds. They’re a pretty soft grey linen stripe. Standing alone, I love them. With the wallpaper?
It’s great. 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 do change them, I’ll do a solid. As pretty as those shibori-style ones are, they’re not a good colour match for the other navy features in the room. I need to decide today.
So that’s where I’m at with the boho bedroom design this week.
