One Room Challenge: Week 4 Progress- The Lull, Pillow Decisions, and Questions Answered

You. Guys. It’s time for the Week Four One Room Challenge Progress update but I’ll be honest. I walked in the door this evening for the first time after being out of town since before the Week Three update. I will be sharing my travels and adventures soon so stay tuned 😉 But, I literally have not touched the bedroom this week. If this is your first time visiting, you can check out my previous weeks below for progress on my guest bedroom makeover.

I think I also promised a fun story this week had I not made much progress… well, I am having difficulty forming coherent sentences, even in my head, so that will have to wait, too haha. To make up for my lack of excitement, here’s a little more of a peek than I anticipated giving. Again, no judgement on wrinkled bedding 😉

I have been going back and forth on throw pillows and THINK I have some picked, as of today (woo!). I initially planned on mixing several patterns but after seeing a good bit of other pattern in the room, I think I am sticking to a solid linen, accompanied by a tone on tone in front. I managed to secure a few other items while I was away, also and as of this evening, some of our window treatments have been delivered. I haven’t peeked in the boxes yet but they are here.

Here’s where we are with other room components. (You can click in the images below to be taken directly to the source.)

NOTE: I have had several questions on the night stands and for some strange reason, several of you are being directed to the retail home page instead of the product page. If that happens, search “Crestaire Southridge Bedside” once you are on the main retail page. The color is “Capiz”.

And, this is what the to-do list is looking like.

  • Decide on art and order (HAS to be this week)
  • Finalize and order pillows (HAS to be this week)
  • Assemble room as products are purchased and arrive
  • Install window treatments
  • Shop for accessories and guest essentials
  • Find full length mirror
  • Organize guest bedroom closet

A big, HUGE thank you to featured sponsors this week for contributing to this project.

    Hey Kelley, loved seeing your travels and glad y’all had fun! Sometimes being away is just what you need to finish the ORC, ha! I was traveling 3 of 6 weeks and my husband was gone this last week, so it’s been difficult to make progress. Good news is we’re all in the same boat and I know this will be such a beautiful bedroom like the rest of your home! Let’s do this! XOXO, Sarah

    The bed and the light fixture compliment each other so nicely! Can not wait to see how this room comes together.

    Kelley, I love everything about this bedroom! I’m trying to find the source for the two silver mirrors and when I click it it takes me to a blank google page. Resource please??
    Thank you for the inspiration!

    I think it’s totally healthy to take a step back for a week or so during the ORC. If nothing else, it helps gain perspective. Last round we ended up going on a week-long Florida vacation with the fam, and although I thought it’d be stressful being away from the project while everyone was making headway, it ended up much more of a positive experience in that I was able to jumpstart my creative juices. Hope your trip had the same effect on you!

    I always find myself traveling during the ORC and it creates such a crunch. Good thing we work well under pressure 🙂
