Welcome back to Week 2 of the ORC! If you're new this week you can start at the beginning and check out my plan for our master bedroom makeover here.
I'll be perfectly honest, it was Easter Weekend and the pollen in the air has Tagg's asthma flared up big time so I didn't get nearly as much accomplished as I had hoped. Is till need to add another coat of paint to the walls, scrape the windows, dap and paint the crown and molding, and paint the doors. Boring stuff but it needs to be done before I get much further.
So what did I do this past week? Fors starters, I ordered two yards of Schumacher Garden of Persia Dove Fabric which arrived. It's so beautiful! Like really really lovely in person. I have been in love with this fabric after spying it in several rooms I loved online for a while. I just need to decide if I want to make Euro Shams with it like I had originally intended or recover a bench cushion with it instead. You can see below where I tested it out on both spaces. I'm torn. I feel like I need to get a few more textiles in the room before I make such a big decision.
Here is a little bit of inspiration for what I'm thinking. You can see the garden of persia in the pink colorway. I love that but I wanted to go with the taupey-grey for Matthew.
I popped a bench and mirror onto the wall in between the closet and bathroom doors to try to create a little seating vignette. I don't love the mirror or the bench as-is but I'm liking the idea of them. This room doesn't really get much light so it's nice to have such a large mirror opposite the windows. And it's always nice to have a little extra seating in a room.
Although I loved that fabric as shams, you can see below that it could be really pretty and extremely functional to add this as a skirt to my existing bench. That would be perfect for hiding a basket of shoes or extra linens. I could always use a less expensive fabric to make a skirted cover and then a small pillow cover with the schumacher fabric if I have any extra. That's probably a more wise plan.
That's it for this week! Be sure to tune in next Wednesday for more updates. You can also follow along on instagram for even more little sneak peaks on the progress in our master bedroom!
