One Room Challenge Week 6

Sadly, I do not have a big reveal for you today in the last installment of the six-week One Room Challenge. Having to select a new fabric for Sophie's headboard and bedding in Week 4 set us back a few weeks on that delivery, and we are still waiting on her desk and upholstered chair and ottoman (which I knew we would not have until later this month.) However! The roman shade has been installed and it is fabulous. I am totally enchanted by this Schumacher print.


My workroom did a fantastic job of taking the best advantage of the large scale pattern, and with the fabrication overall. The backside is a work of art - it looks like the construction of a ball gown.


As Sophie's bedside chest is currently in the cabinetmaker's workshop being copied as a small bookcase it feels like we have actually lost ground, but her bed is now made up with new linens from Pine Cone Hill and Traditions Linens (that nicely complement the Chelsea Textiles pillows) so she can finally move back in.

Also, we picked up this mod flokati rug by nuLoom to put beside Sophie's bed. We all sleep with the windows open so the floors get quite cold at this time of year (it was 19° outside on Monday morning!) - this will take the chill off and feel so good underfoot.

So, while we wait on delivery of a few items, I hope you will stayed tuned - subscribe by email or follow in Google Reader. I expect to share the completed room in about a month's time. To those of you who have been checking in since Week 1, thank you for your encouraging and often funny comments. And thank you to Linda at Calling It Home for organizing the One Room Challenge and inviting me to participate - I have enjoyed it so much!

  2. You actually are helping us with the let down of the ORC reveals being over- we still have yours to look forward to! and it is looking so professional and gorgeous. Can't believe the construction of that roman shade. Ive never seen anyone cover the cording in the back...lovely! Good luck with the arrival of all your custom pieces. Love the flokati- a whimsical touch to the sophistication! xoxo Nancy

  6. Phyllis,
    The roman shade is wonderful, I love how it appears like a framed mirror when completely down, while reflecting the fabulous wall papered wall. It's worth the wait to have everything finished the way you both wanted. I love the bed linens.
    xo,

  9. That roman shade is fabulous! Love the details. That's the kind of seamless look that I want for my window treatments. One can immediate tell that the bedding is luxurious. So beautiful; just beckoning to be touched:-). Is that a flokati rug on the floor? I will of course be keeping an eye out for your full reveal. I still have some unfinished things to share too... Oh and the wallpaper is delicious!

  21. No worries Phyllis....when I did the first ORC I did not finish either and Linda always kids me that I did like 75 ORC post:) What you have done is wonderful and I for one while be around for the final reveal.....That Schumacher fabric made into the roman shade is perfectly beautiful. As are the pillows.

  22. What I can see so far is amazing, Phyllis...such gorgeous quality. This ORC was stressful for me as I found out we were moving to a new city...I had to finish a week early and then see it all packed up :( Anyway, it pays to wait for what you really want. Keep up the good work.

  23. Eh. Things happen! Don't sweat it because what you've already shown is BRILLIANT! That shade is to die for. As I always say, design is not war, there really is no front line, and be grateful for that. Your work is so beautiful, and certainly worth the wait! ;-) Bummer on the fabric, though. Isn't that always the way??
