It’s One Room Challenge Week Five, with reveal day set for next week. The UK has just gone into a second lockdown, and everything is delayed. I can’t get the wallpaper hung for at least another two weeks, and there are shipping delays on the remaining furniture and the lighting.
I started looking for speedier alternatives, but ultimately decided to take a few extra weeks and finish with a space doesn’t involve cutting corners.
This is where the room is at today…
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 it’s got great legs!
The Roscoe Bed comes in a few fabric options, one of which is a gorgeous deep green velvet, which tempted me. 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 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 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 dark, so I hung it on the wall opposite the window to bounce as much light back as possible.
