One Room Challenge: Week Four
It's hard to believe that the Spring One Room Challenge is halfway over. We still have a way to go, but once the furniture and decor is in place it will all come together. The wallpaper was definitely the most transformative element in this space, and I'm using it to balance the other design elements. I'm also still debating whether or not to install matching curtain panels -- I love the custom look of tone on tone but we also want to keep her canopy and too much drapery might overwhelm the small space.
One thing that I've been fascinated with forever is the concept of a secret door. I love the element of intrigue and whimsy that an unassuming bookcase swinging open into a hidden room brings. In our current home, there is no good place really to add something like that, but it is definitely on my must-list for our next home. Can you imagine retiring from a delicious candlelit supper into a hidden speakeasy slash library?! I've been watching too many period dramas...
However, since Sheva's new room will be neighboring Mendel's room, we are adding a mini door that will connect the two rooms through the closet. They love playing together and are excited to have their own secret passage. In the meantime, I've been browsing the web for the coolest secret passage ideas, you can find some of favorites below.
Aside from adding the secret doors, we still have to finish/trim wallpaper, color match and paint the fourth wall, install canopy and furniture, potential window treatments, and finishing touches. And of course, shoot the completed space!
That's all for today, check back next week for our progress! And of course follow along on Instagram @estiekessler for all my updates. Also, check out the other designers HERE or click the ORC Logo below, there is a lot to catch up on. See you next week!
