I am sure you know this event well, but if not it is hosted by the lovely Linda from Calling it Home.
Yesterday the official One Room Challenge began and today the rest of us get to throw our hats in.
I will be doing my 16 year-old daughter's room, although she will turn 17 before its over provided she relinquishes control to me.
I hemmed and hawed about doing her room because a.) she has opinions b.) she did not get the design gene and c.) she is fickle. So fickle that sunburst mirrors hung at the right height have been replaced by paintings dangling far too high from the floor among other bizarre changes.
It goes like this, I find a solution for her room, she approves, I purchase and a week later it is in the closet in favor some goofy mock-up. All of this does not sit so well with me, so call me mean but, going forward she will be consulted minorly and forbidden to change things.
We need a desk and chair situation here and for goodness sakes less crap everywhere!
These desks are my inspiration.
I need a storage solution here. Ugh!
I am not entirely awful as I am planning a gallery wall that includes some framed "permanent" pieces and and some that are easy to change out on a whim.
Right now she hangs her own watercolors from her Etsy shop along with sweet little pictures made by her little sister in this spot.
Her color scheme so far has been gray, yellow black, greige and red. Yup, I said red so you can see why an intervention of the strongest sort is in order.
Here is the plan:
- Desk and chair situation resolved
- Implement new color scheme
- Find storage for records
- Find storage for cosmetics
- Create gallery wall
- Accessorize within new color scheme
Head on over to Calling it Home to see what the other participants are up to and come back next week to see my progress.
