ORC: Week 5 Guest Bedroom Makeover


 Welcome back to the One Room Challenge!  By this time, most of ya'll probably know that this is Week 5 of the 6 week makeover challenge.  Each week all of the participating bloggers have been posting our progress on our room transformations...next week is the final reveal. 

If you're just joining, please feel free to catch up on Vivid Hue Home's Guest Bedroom progress from  previous weeks here: 


Week 1   |  Week 2    |  Week 3     |  Week 4   |  Week 5  |  Week 5 1/2  | Final Reveal
 

I've built an awful lot of hype around the Turquoise Urchin Chandelier for this room.  I had considered making everyone wait until week six to view the light actually hanging.  Instead, I'm giving ya'll a peak of how it looked in the room earlier this week...sorry for the shoddy photo.  This was taken for my electrician from my iphone.  His wife wanted to see what all the hype was about so I took a quick snapshot to email him.   Room is in disarray and still in progress.  But, what do you think of the light? 





I've had to revisit my idea to trim the room with ribbon nail head trim.   That Petersham ribbon I ordered in August is not shipping any time soon so I cancelled the order this week.  I've got so much going on in this room now anyway that I don't need it. 


So what did I do instead?  I found this pom pom fringe with this great border and I paid for expedited shipping (from Taiwan) so I can see how it might look on the drapes.  I may just leave them alone.  I don't want it to look like Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory in here!  I'll assess when I receive it. 

 
I found this fuchsia chair at Home Goods and it adds a pop of color in the corner. 
 
 
 
I'm also throwing together a gallery wall.  That wasn't planned but I think it's necessary.  I found a great quote print from One King's Lane that reminded me of my lil Vivster. 
 
 
 Since this "guest room" is technically where Vivi sleeps, I want to make the space hers, too.  I have picked out artwork and quotes that will add a little "Vivi feel" to the room. 
 
I am also starting to stage like crazy.  Sure, there are only two nightstands and a dresser in this room.  But a final reveal is all about presentation, baby.   These herons are my faves.  They'll be in the room someplace. 
 
In the meantime, this week was a busy week, and not all ORC-related--which means I'll have to kick it into high gear for the final stretch!    Last weekend I escaped Connecticut for a weekend getaway without the kids.  My husband and I went to a wedding for a great friend in NYC. 


I found these fabulous shoes in NYC to go with my dress for the wedding. 

 
Mor Mor and Grandpa came into town to spend time with the kids.
 

 
My little guy, Jack, turned seven years old!


And I did a guest post over at DesignPost Interiors for Beth's "Take Two" series.  Read here.


Check back next week for the FINAL reveal of the guest bedroom! 

In the meantime, visit  the other participants from the One Room Challenge.
