ORC Reveal | A Modern Boho Master Bedroom

ORC Reveal | A Modern Boho Master Bedroom

The bedroom I’ve been working on for the last couple of months still isn’t quite finished, but it’s close enough to share. This room makeover is part of the One Room Challenge, and today is the very last day to share the reveals. I’ll update this post with better photos once the final few pieces are in. For now though, here’s my modern boho bedroom in all it’s current glory. The Mood Board Here’s a reminder of the mood board… View Post

ORC Week 5 | The Bed Is Here

ORC Week 5 | The Bed Is Here

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… View Post

ORC Week 3 | Boho Bedroom Progress

ORC Week 3 | Boho Bedroom Progress

I’m working on the master bedroom in my new flat for this One Room Challenge. You can catch up on what the ORC is, and read all the details on the mood board and plans for this space, in last week’s post, but here’s a little refresher on my boho/mid-century design for this bedroom… Adding Subtle Texture Things have started arriving, including the pretty rattan chest of drawers. I spent two and half hours building this thing, only to realise… View Post

ORC Week 1 & 2 | Master Bedroom Plans

It’s One Room Challenge time again. If you’re not familiar, the ORC is a biannual event where a whole bunch of interior “influencers” transform a room over six weeks – a bedroom in my case. We post progress deets every week. It’s about community, not competition, which I love, and it’s a melting pot of gorgeous design ideas and DIY inspiration. I’m working on the master bedroom in my new flat. I’m a little tardy to the party (it kicked… View Post

ORC Week 8 | Eclectic Living Room Reveal

ORC Week 8 | Eclectic Living Room Reveal

It’s One Room Challenge Reveal Day! Over the last eight weeks, I’ve been working to make the living room in our Edwardian house brighter, happier, and more functional. I’m calling the overall vibe “Global Eclectic.” The house is rented and the budget was pretty tight, so it’s not the most dramatic makeover. And Covid sprang a few shipping delays on me, so it’s actually not 100% finished. But it’s close enough to share. Goal #1: Make It Lighter & Brighter… View Post

ORC Week 7 | Living Room Design Updates

Hello lovely people. Today marks one week until the “big” reveal of my new living room. I’ve spent the last seven weeks faffing around with the room design to make the space lighter, brighter, cosier and happier. This room makeover is part of the One Room Challenge, an eight week design challenge that you can read more about in week one. If you want to catch up on progress posts from the rest of the challenge, there are links at… View Post

ORC Week 6 | Living Room: Shelf Styling

ORC Week 6 | Living Room: Shelf Styling

I’m six weeks into the One Room Challenge, doing up the living room in our rented house in London. This week I’m talking about the shelfie situation, and hanging the monster TV over the fireplace. The goal for this room was to make it lighter, brighter, happier and more livable, and it’s getting there. I don’t have a big budget, and obviously can’t do anything major coz it’s not really my house, so it’s not the most dramatic design plan.… View Post

ORC Week 4 | Living Room: New Plans!

ORC Week 4 | Living Room: New Plans!

We’re basically half way through the One Room Challenge. Quick recap: the ORC is an eight week design challenge where a whole bunch of interior designers & design influencers makeover… can you guess? Yep – one room. I’m giving the living room in our rented Edwardian semi a bit of attention to make it lighter, brighter, happier and more livable. (You can catch up on previous weeks progress through the links at the end of this post.) So what’s been… View Post

ORC Week 3 | Living Room: Creating More Light & Space

ORC Week 3 | Living Room: Creating More Light & Space

It’s Week Three of the One Room Challenge, where I’m giving the living room in my rented house a wee spruce up. Catch up on the design plan for this room in Week One, and progress on the fireplace wall makeover in Week Two. Honestly, I’ve struggled with motivation this week. I think mostly just because I’m so very much over not seeing people, and this whole situation. I know you feel me. But I did get some stuff done,… View Post
