It's week two of the One Room Challenge and since I decided to jump in at the last minute it was a scramble to come up with a concept. The She Shed is currently filled with items that need to be donated, tools, fabric samples, tile samples, textiles, wallpaper, artwork etc. I challenged myself to go through my items and take this opportunity to use what I already own FIRST, then fill in the gaps with new items. This, by the way, is exactly the process I use to work with my design clients. I love to reuse, repurpose, repaint, update and up-cycle when I can.
I mentioned in my first post that I partnered with Ron Rice Painting and Consulting to paint the interior and exterior of the shed. I did this waaay before I knew I was going to move into the moody tones but here's what the interior looks like. A clean canvas of Sherwin Williams Alabaster white paint.
As I mentioned, my first order of business was to go through my items and use what I already own. I found this wallpaper - FOUR rolls of it - called Zebra Lines by Opalhouse.
I also found a set of Scribble curtain panels from West Elm that I'm going to use to skirt a built in desk that my husband installed.
I will also be adding layers of natural wood tones, texture, fringe and an abundance of Frida Kahlo art...my creative muse! Here is what the concept looks like all pulled together - concept board, color scheme and furniture plan.
I am also excited to be partnering with one of my favorite brands, Twin Star Home. Twin Star Home, the #1 leader in electric fireplaces and standing desks recently dipped their toe into outdoor furniture and will be sponsoring a pair of club chairs, side table and outdoor pillows.
I'm also partnering with my friends at Chandra for the indoor/outdoor area rug.
Now it's time to get down to business and implement the plan.
