ORC- The plan and color scheme


I am a linking participant in Calling it Home's One room Challenge and it is week 2!
I left out my inspiration board last week because I just had not wrapped my head around what I was going to do. 
Things may still change but we are keeping the bed, curtains and loveseat.
The desk situation is still up in the air with no chair in sight. Why is it that when you don't need a chair you see 50 really cool chairs for around 50 cents or something and when you need one there is nothing?

So far I am on budget with lots of goodies and surprises for my daughter (and you).
Her walls and much of her furniture is white and we already have the yellow and white chevron curtains. You may remember from last week the goofy color scheme that was all over the place.
Since I am also keeping the bed that is a warm gray/linen color, I have to factor that in.
The colors will look like this:


 As I said, I will be keeping the linen and yellow in the room but I will brighten the look with a healthy dose of blue and white fabrics, art and accessories. I am also going to add a smattering of gold/ brass too.

 I have made some major thrifting scores like the blue and white porcelain I featured on Monday.

 I still have work to do but at least I know where its all going.
  • 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 back to Calling it Home to see all of the cool stuff going on in the other linking participant's rooms.

I love the color palate! Sometimes deciding on a color direction is the hardest part, isn't it?! That was my goal for this week and I think I finally narrowed it down. So glad to have found you through the ORC!
