It’s One Room Challenge Week Five – the last one before Reveal Week. It’s also the week I accepted the reality that this bedroom makeover is not going to be finished by next week, and probably not for a few weeks after that. The UK has just gone into a second lockdown, and everything is delayed. I can’t get the wallpaper hung for another two weeks (if I’m lucky), and there are shipping delays on the rest of the furniture and the lighting.
I started looking for speedier alternatives, but it would have meant settling, and I’d rather take longer and finish with a space I love rather than one that’s just ok.
All that said, this is where the room is at today…
One very exciting development is that, after a ten week wait, the bed arrived. It’s the Roscoe Bed from Made.com. I love the mid-century vibes of it’s simple silhouette…
…and damn it’s got good legs!
The Roscoe Bed comes in a few fabric options, one of which is a gorgeous deep green velvet, which I was very tempted by. But I plan to keep this bed for a long time, so it was safer to pick a neutral fabric that I won’t get bored of in three years. I chose Salcombe Beige, which is a lovely soft warm grey.
Hanging the Mirror & Art
Once the bed arrived, I could hang the art and mirror. I didn’t want to hang anything before the bed arrived in case it threw the height off.
The painting is an original by Alice Neave, and it was the starting point for the whole room design. I’ve had it for a while, and it’s lived in my bedroom before, but I never found it a proper home in the last house. I’m very happy it’s back on prominent display again.
I also brought in the modern black mirror from the living room that I did for Spring’s One Room Challenge. This room is really dark, so I hung it on the wall opposite the window so it would bounce as much light back as possible.
With the bed and all the key pieces in, the room is at least fully functional now. Like I said, don’t expect a reveal post next week – I’ll post that as soon as everything’s in and the whole space is properly finished. But do check my Instagram for progress peeks along the way.
