One Room Challenge: Week 2

Have I mentioned I'm a little indecisive these days? Welcome back to the

One Room Challenge

link partaaay: Week 2.

As of last week, I had jumped on this ORC bandwagon as a way to focus my energies on getting one room in our house more or less completed. We moved in from Brazil in August, and the "to do" list for our circa '70s builder-grade home is long and distinguished.

Giving myself a six-week time limit via the ORC may or may not put me on the road to madness. Either way, it should be fun for you to watch.

As promised, I put together a design board, with the key feature of the room being the

c'est magnifique wallpaper

from Anthro. The more I put the sample against the wall behind the white crib, the more I thought there wasn't enough contrast. A quick polling of family & friends furthered that notion.

So, I kept thinking what other papers I love that would be a better contrast.


, duh.

I do love me a good parrot.

And so it shall be.

Since I'm using the black colorway, I'll pay extra attention to lighting choices in the room to keep it from being too gloomy. Maybe I can get the hubster to spring for some sconces.


Paper ordered.

Rug ordered.

Hope I can get my paintin' pants on sometime soon!
