Down to week 5 of the challenge.
Catch up with the starting point for my master bedroom in week one.
Peep rug, paint color and Ikea dresser inspiration in week two.
See the adjusted plan with a great vintage score in week three.
And peruse lighting, fabric and hardware options in week four.
I was expecting a relatively drama free week five report. And then this arrived.
Quite nice, but that is not a sconce. Which, hey, wrong item. You return it and get your new goods and all is well. Except that it's preeeeeetty late in the game and I must remind you that they only had white sconces in stock. So they need to be painted black and installed before this weekend's photo shoot. Here's hoping the situation has actually been rectified and I get what I ordered this time or I'm in trouble.
In other news, I did get the correct bench fabric and dresser hardware.
Went with the Dodie fabric from Ballard Designs and I. Am. In. Love. I want to reupholster all of the things! Also quite smitten with the hardware results. They're smaller than they were in my head (despite measuring), but that's probably good. You can find all of my favorite hardware options here.
A little sneaky peek of said hardware on the sassy white Malm Ikea dresser:
Ava clearly approves. Definitely no pinched baby digits in our future.
There are still art decisions being made. Originally, I wanted a pretty tight neutral palette so the rug would really sing. (I always love the look of this when I see it elsewhere. Very chic.) But then I came across this special treat over the weekend and I couldn't resist. The palette really complements the colors in the rug, so I'm thinking it could possibly live in our room.
Hard to pass up, right? Neutral with one exception? Pretty sure I will make the call about 10 minutes before the photographer shows up.
I think that's all I have for you guys. I know we originally discussed giving the shoe barrister a makeover, but it was my late grandfather's and I just can't bear to make any changes. Had it been a miscellaneous find, I would be all over it, but I can't bring myself to do it.
Bringing the big guns next week. Hope you guys come back for the big reveal! Thanks for all of the kind comments, support and valuable feedback up to this point. It really makes all the difference.
