Thanks for joining me on the 4th week of the One Room Challenge! We are in the final weeks, and I’m definitely getting nervous! I’m starting to move things back into the room, and I’m doubting some of my design choices now that I’m seeing it all together. I may have some changes to share with you next week, but today I thought I’d share some of the artwork I’m considering for the room.
In my design board, I included some metal artwork, and I think I’ve found just the piece. It’s large, so it really makes a statement, and I love how the gold looks up against the gray walls.
This geode watercolor is one I’m not sure about. I have a thing for natural stones, so I was automatically drawn to it. I’m also planning on using some green geode bookends in the room. The colors in the print are really beautiful! It’s just that I don’t have any other blue accents in the room. I keep telling myself navy is a neutral, so it will look great in the room no matter what other colors I use. Am I just telling myself that because I love it? If I do use it, I think it would look much better with a gold frame to go with the colors in the artwork.
I love the muted colors in this floral artwork, but I’m worried it blends into the wall a bit much. If there’s time, I’d like to build a frame around it to give it a little more definition.
And…the thing I am probably most excited about in the room is that Sharon Mowry Studio (aka “Mom”) has agreed to make the artwork that will go over the bed! My mom makes some really incredible art with broken glass pieces, and I’ve been wanting some of her art for a long time. I have a very small piece that she made years ago, but she’s been so busy that I don’t have any big pieces of her art. I think it would be really awesome to have something for this room since it will be where she stays when she comes to visit. I’ve sent her pictures of the room and the decor I’m using along with measurements of the space, so she has a feel for how I want the room to look. The final product will be a surprise even to me! She’s got incredible taste, so I trust her completely on this.
Check out some of her work:
I’m so excited to have something in this room that has so much meaning! I know that whatever she makes me will be something that I cherish forever.
I hope you’ll stop back next week to hear about some of the problems that have come up and some changes I’m thinking about making.
