ORC - The Final Week

Oh the one room challenge. I was so excited to get this finished and share the results with you all! Serious props go out to all the ladies & gents  that complete their beautiful rooms in time - it is no small feat! As you can probably tell, I don't have a finished room for you today - a combination of things not arriving in time, terribly cloudy & grey days meaning no photos, and lets be honest, a little poor time management on my part too ;) - but I do have some updates!

Several pieces did arrive (like the jewelry stand above!) and you can even see a sneak peek of the new-to-me mirror I hung too. I had a lot of heavy black pieces on my vanity area before, and now it just feels so much lighter & brighter. I'm loving the mixed metals too.

There's a few pillows that need their stuffing & some new bedding on it's way, so watch my Instagram to see when those arrive. I'm hoping to have some sort of 'final' reveal up before the end of the year to show the whole space.

And I have to talk about Amber! Working with Amber on this was so lovely - she listened to everything I was thinking about and came back with items that were already on my wishlist (she read my mind!) and projects that I never would have thought of (but instantly loved!). It was the perfect combination of totally understanding my style and challenging me to create the best design possible. Her e-design process included an inspiration board to make sure we were both on the same page, and then the final design presentation with all the final ideas, items, where to purchase things, links to alternate options and even a few DIY projects I could tackle ;) And most of the links were even for Canadian stores! Such a nice touch to be able to shop somewhat local even if I was ordering things online. I loved loved working with Amber on this, and if you ever need help with an e-design (or in-person design if you're local to Central New York you lucky ducks), I would recommend her 100%.

That's all I have for now, but stayed tuned for more sneak peeks on Instagram & for the full reveal once everything is here. Thankyou for folllowing along! If you've ever debated the ORC, it's a totally fun way to get your butt in gear and finish a room haha I would highly recommend trying it at least once - is yolo still a thing? ;)


If you're in the mood for browsing more ORC rooms, I loved Vanessa's Parisian bedroom, Cassie's jewelbox living room, Sue's light & airy bathroom, Cassandra's fabulous dressing room, Megan's sweet lavender nursery, Sarah's perfectly mixed living room, and even though Christine didn't finish in time, I cannot wait to see her final space! #staytuned
