ORC Week 1 – Master Bedroom Mood Board

It’s One Room Challenge time! I’m so excited to be linking up with Linda for this round of ORC fun. In the past I’ve worked on my laundry room, master bathroom, dining room and guest bedroom. Honestly, none of those rooms would be even close to complete if I hadn’t joined the challenge, so a huge thanks to Linda for hosting every year!

This year I’m cheating a bit. I’ve picked the master bedroom for this round even though I’ve already started on it. I have so many unfinished rooms that I don’t really want to start working on another room before finishing one I’ve already started. Plus joining the challenge is probably the only way it’ll ever get finished.

When I bought the house 5 years ago, the room looked like this:

It was a weird green color with brown blinds. Almost immediately after closing on the house, my mom and I re-painted the room and I added furniture and accessories over the next few years. This is what the room looked like until last fall:

Last fall I was ready for a change so I decided to go dark. I painted the walls Parisian Nights by Dunn-Edwards and I’m still obsessed with the color…no regrets! I also bought a new bed, nightstands and curtains. This is what the room currently looks like:

It’s so much better than before, but is still missing some furniture and anything decorative. So although I have a big head start on this challenge, there’s still plenty left to do to finish this room. With that, let’s take a look at the mood board I put together for the room.

Obviously everything is subject to change, but this is the general direction I’m heading. As I mentioned earlier, I’ve already bought a new bed and nightstands, but I still need a pair of dressers and either a pair of chairs or chaise lounge for the sitting area. Everything else is just accessories and finishing touches, but those usually take me the longest to find.
So with that, here’s my to-do list for the challenge. I’m sure I’m forgetting something and will need to update it next week.
Paint Walls
Buy Bed
New Nightstands
Buy/Hang New Curtains

New Dressers
Buy Chaise Lounge
Hang Artwork
Add Full-Length Mirror
Sew Pillows
Paint Lamps
Accessories and Finishing Touches
