It's hard to believe that this is week 4 of the 6 week One Room Challenge. For those of you that are freshly visiting, the ORC is a makeover challenge where designers select one room to design over the course of six weeks. Each week, progress is revealed. If you need a refresher on what's happened so far during my son's bedroom makeover, please visit the previous weeks:
Now, there's been a lot of speculation about what I would do to the ceiling of this bedroom. I had considered painting but ultimately, I decided to wallpaper the ceiling. I wanted a rustic and boyish look that was cool but would also grow as my seven year old gets older.
The selection: Thibaut Rodanthe in Grey ! I love the appearance of wood planks and I think it's going to look stunning up on the ceiling.
I've decided to do the horizontal walls in the bedroom in the Vintage Global Map Custom Wallpaper from Design Your Wall. Together, I think the two papers give a great contrast.
As I mentioned in week 1, I wanted individual lighting on each bunk level so that the kids could have extra light when reading in bed. I found very industrial looking lights at Restoration Hardware Gallery, The Factory Cage Sconce.
Here are the factory cage sconces installed in the room before the wallpaper is added.
Normally I'm a total color gal, but I'm trying to stay neutral in this room with a few subtle pops. I purchased the Target Threshold Criss Cross rug for the room to add extra pattern and texture.
Also, on my last trip to Brimfield, I spotted these buoys. I wasn't sure how to use them but I thought they could be incorporated into the room somehow so I bought a handful of them. They're so colorful and add a vintage look to them.
And...I need some window coverings to replace the temporary shades that have been up in the room for the last 2 years....how's that for TEMPORARY! This is a stripe from Calico and I think it may be just enough contrast on the windows without being overkill...
So, it's coming together slowly but surely! Two more weeks until the final reveal! What are your thoughts about the Thibaut Rodanthe paper for the ceiling!?
