Week 2: One Room Challenge Progress

Welcome to Week 2 of the One Room Challenge.  I'm Vivid Hue Home and I'm re-doing my guest bedroom in a Bohemian Chic meets Palm Beach Glam.  If you missed my week one, check it out here: 

Week 1 Vivid Hue Home Plan

Let me remind ya'll of my vision:



This week was dependent upon a lot of deliveries, returns, reorders and 'gettins-it-right.'
The most exciting part of the week, the Turquoise Urchin Chandelier arrived!  I must say Zach Dutton, the owner of Stimulight was excellent in fast tracking this custom chandelier to me.  I ordered it on etsy on September 16th and on October 3rd, it  shipped!

It is just as fabulous as I thought it would be!




I can't wait to get this baby out of the box and hung on the ceiling!  Right now, I'm just coordinating with the electrician's schedule to get it  hung!  It can't happen soon enough! 


For those of ya'll that have been following me for awhile, you know that I absolutely LOVE to decorate and come up with DIY projects...but I generally take a half a$$ed approach in some of the details.  (For example, why sand a door if I can just do an extra coat of paint?).  Well in this case, I purchased window blinds without having the exact measurements on hand.  I thought for *sure* that I recalled them properly.  I ended up buying 36" width for 34" width windows.  Hey...a few trips back and forth.  And back and forth.  And back again to have another 1/2" inch shaved.  FINALLY they fit the gosh darned windows.  And then my drill wasn't quite charged so I attempted to hang them by hand with a screw driver and managed to strip the screw in the process.  So, I just hammered the screw into the wall the rest of the way.  Hey, the bracket is nice and secure, and this isn't for a client (thank goodness), so I'm allllllllll set!  Here's a sneak peak of part one of the multi-faceted window treatments.  Remember, I hope to add drapes and hardware and all of that good stuff too! 



The room is painted in the Sherwin Williams HGTV SW Loyal Blue and it's looking good against the headboard!  Sneak Peak...


The fabulous turquoise nightstands are a tad damaged on the ends.  The paint is chipped and the tops are water damaged.  I need to add beveled mirrors and some paint to repair. 



And new hardware is in order.  Here is what's there currently....


 
 Still hunting for nightstand lighting.  I want something VERY understated as the Urchin Pendant Lamp (above) will be the statement of the room! 

One other nerve-wracking update...my Petersham Ribbon in Azalea is still processing.  I ordered it back on August 12th.  Yes, nearly TWO MONTHS AGO!  It's been on backorder since then and I'm still not sure that it will ship in time for me to do the nailhead ribbon trim border in the room.  Fingers crossed! 

 
 What do you think of the progress?  Isn't that chandelier to die for?

Get outta town! The light is even better than last time. That sucker even looks good in a box ;)

Ashley @ The Houston House said...

such bright and happy colors!

Stacey said...

I bookmarked that same etsy shop a couple days ago! Love their work. That's a pretty light you've got there and that wall colour is beautiful.

Kerry Steele- Design du Monde said...

I have chandelier envy!
I laughed out loud at the story of hanging the shade. That is exactly the sort of thing Mr. Designdumonde yells at my impatient butt about.

Beth of designPOST Interiors said...

That light will be the scene stealer for sure! And talk about a backorder...that is insane!

mrs. V | Chez V said...

Kim said...

It is looking so fun and colorful and so YOU!! I love it all! xo

Julia | Pawleys Island Posh said...

That light fixture is freaking amazing!

Cathy Wall said...

Your tales of half a**ed approaches to things rings true for me as well!!! I have no patience, so I was laughing (with you of course) about your shades!
Seriously tho this room is going to be amazing, the light fixture is out of this world!!!

Elizabeth @ The Little Black Door said...

That chandy is nothing short of amazing. I can't believe they got it done so quickly. And I love that you take the same half arsed approach to your projects that I do. LOL.

Andrea said...

Looking great, Heather! I absolutely LOVE that chandelier, and the nightstands are so fabulous!!

XOXO,

Oh, that chandelier...I am swooning. I've been admiring Stimulight's listings on Etsy for a while now; good to know you had a positive experience with them!

StagerLinda said...

Your chandelier makes me happy! What a wonderful surprise to wake up to!

Linda {Calling it Home} said...

Heather that fixture is killer. What a great source for fun lighting. I hate reading about your ribbon. That kind of thing happens to me all the time, too. You know I want that bamboo table. Can't wait to see more. BTW, good luck to the person who has to get that hammered in screw out one day.

Lisa Mende said...

Love it! Also, you don't really have to use the petersham if you can find the right color otherwise. Look at the Ribbon Retreat. That is actually where we ended up finding our ribbon. You can always cancel the other order... good luck. looking good!

Layne @ The Room Journal said...

That chandelier is incredible! What a find! As someone who is a little unsure of myself when it comes to color, I am amazed with your blog. I'm excited to follow along!

Erin said...

Oh my goodness, that custom chandelier is tdf! Well done.

Kim - Commander-in-Chic said...

I had to chuckle when you said you just hammered the screw in...good to hear I'm not the only one who cuts corners and just makes it work. ;)

Love the light!!

SHERRY HART said...

Holy smokes! This room is going to be off the charts....and that chandelier....whoa mama!

Cathy Wall said...

The chandelier is killer and I can relate to the blind hanging debacle. This room is just going to rock it and no one will know the better!
