ORC Reveal | Neutral Master Bedroom

ORC Reveal | Neutral Master Bedroom

My neutral master bedroom is finished, and it’s time for a room reveal! This last week has been crazy but it all came together on time, and I love how the room turned out. Learn more about Emmerson & Fifteenth’s interior design services here. I live in a rented three story house near Richmond Upon Thames, London, and the master bedroom is on the top floor. It’s a lovely light-filled space, and I wanted to keep it bright and neutral but…

ORC Week 5 | DIY | Mid-century Bedside Tables

Good news, everyone: I finally got the wood for my live-edge desk! It’s definitely been the biggest hassle of this whole One Room Challenge master bedroom makeover, but it’s going to be worth it. I’ve still got to sand and finish it, but there is at least a chance now that I will finish on time! I also finished the mid-century bedside tables this week, although one is still drying as I type! This pair of little mid-century bedside tables…

ORC Week 4 | More Master Bedroom Progress

ORC Week 4 | More Master Bedroom Progress

My plan for this week was to show off my newly painted bedside cabinets, and/or my new live edge desk, but neither of those are happening. Womp womp. I should have been able to go and pick up the wood for the desk by now, being currently on day 12 of the company’s 7-10 day window for getting it cut to size. They’re currently ignoring me and my pleas for information though, so presumably that means it’s still not ready.…

ORC Week 3 | Master Bedroom Progress

We’re half way through the One Room Challenge, and frustratingly, I don’t have much to show. Everything on order is taking ages to arrive. What I did do, though, is clear out the room properly and clean it top to bottom. Yes, there’s still a little pile of stuff, but it’s all stuff that is (probably) staying, and just needs to be installed/styled. Please ignore the duvet cover – I’ve just pinched it from the guest bed while ours is in…

ORC Week 2 | Art and A Mirror for our Master

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. The Mood Board In case you missed last week’s post, here’s my plan: Look for Less: Artwork I’ve been enamored with a stunning large-scale cloud print by JR Goodwin for ages, but at £930, it wasn’t going to happen. Then I stumbled on a similar…

Design Finds | Love Your Home Chesterfield Sofa Bed

I’ve had a Chesterfield sofa bed on my wish list for a long time now. And I finally found “the one.” Check out Clementine. Choosing “The One” A lot of time went into selecting this sofabed. I decided on one from Love Your Home over a year ago because they’re solid, great quality, and well priced. I was torn between two models, though – the more traditional, chunky Churchill or the curvier, more feminine Clementine. I went to check out…

ORC Week 1 | Mood Board | Eclectic Neutral Bedroom

It’s One Room Challenge time again, and this time I’m working on a neutral master bedroom design that will transform a boring loft room into a bit of a retreat. The One Room Challenge is a bi-annual event where a multitude of interior designers and bloggers each work on transforming a space over six weeks, posting weekly updates. So much good stuff comes out of this – mountains of inspiration – and I’m thoroughly excited to join in again. Last round,…

Design Finds | Woven Wall Hanging

Design Finds | Woven Wall Hanging

In my original mood board for my living room design, I’d included a woven wall hanging. Unfortunately, the piece I’d used was basically impossible to get hold of. I’d had a look at other weavings on Etsy, but I wanted something both very textured and very neat, and everything I found was either one or the other. Then I found Anita Meads of By Bella Designs through Instagram (I’m EmmersonAnd15th over there), and totally fell in love with her work. When I got…

Room Reveal | Shared Kids Room

Room Reveal | Shared Kids Room

It’s reveal time! Over the past six weeks, I’ve been working on a gender-neutral, shared kids room, turning it into a bright, happy space for my six-year-old son and four-year-old daughter. This makeover is part of the One Room Challenge. Learn more about Emmerson & Fifteenth’s interior design services here. The Design Plan We had a small budget for this room, so I used a lot of existing pieces. The room isn’t big, but it’s lovely and light, and the perfectly…
