One Room Challenge: A Cozy Parisian Master Retreat

Happy Thursday friends! 
If you are new to my blog, welcome, I'm glad you are here!
So, it's that time again... the spring One Room Challenge...
   The One Room Challenge design event is a bi-annual 6 week (it's 8 weeks this season) challenge to makeover a space in your home. Twenty designers are chosen to participate and every Wednesday, the designers document their process while sharing their sources and professional advice over the six weekly posts. In addition to following along, everyone with a blog, is welcome to join the fun as a Guest Participant and will post their results the following Thursday for the next 6 weeks. 
This will be my 4th ORC, you can find my other ORC projects here
So for this ORC I will be making over our master bedroom.
I need to catch ya'll up on our situation first, 
if you don't follow me on Instagram @simplysummermorgan you my not know... 
we moved... bought a new house... changed out minds... and moved back to the farm!!! 

Yes we are insane...

 now that you are caught up, lets get back to the subject at matter...
Here is how our bedroom currently looks.
I know what you're thinking, not bad... right? Well this bedroom, like most rooms in our house have been done over a couple of times and as they say, hopefully the third time's the charm. 
I'm going to go with a Parisian type feel this go around.
This was our room before we moved. It was actually a greyish white, I really never liked the color.

but I did really like the design for a time being, 
but I like change so this is a good time to experiment and play with pattern and color ...

Luckily for me, before we moved back in we repainted the bedroom, I couldn't decide if I wanted to go bright white or a moody dark color, so I compromised and chose SW Agreeable Gray.

I love this color, I used it in the home we just moved from (insert rolled eyes) it's such a complimentary color and goes with so many things... in the other house it has a very blue undertone and in our home, it has a very greige vibe which I love.
I'm keeping this makeover budget friendly as always,
 I will be reusing everything and really not buying much.
The rug is new, I had purchased it for the new house's living room, but now I'm using it in the bedroom so all the new colors will be based around the rug.
I plan to paint all the furniture, do an accent wall where the fireplace is and 
make my husband put up his crap that is sitting out in giant Tupperware...

So here's the list... in list form

1. Paint All the furniture
2. Finish painting the doors
3. Wallpaper Accent wall
4. New Pillows for bed
5. Change Bedding
6. Add Curtains
7. Accents and texture.
So luckily for me, it's not a super huge list... I have had much larger.
I'm reusing everything so really I just need to buy wallpaper and paint for the furniture... and some curtain rods...maybe some fabric... the list keeps growing:)

You can see the other Guest Participants here.
Thanks for stopping by! I can't wait to show you the progress, I'll be sharing on IG stories @simplysummermorgan



  1. Summer this is quite a change for you. All those wood tones are going to disappear. I am really looking forward to this one.

    1. Yes it will! One I have personally wanted to make for a while:) but the Mr. loves him some stained wood so I never did... I finally wore him down...after I started talking about new furniture or painting the old:) hehe...

  2. Oh and for some reason I missed the news about you changing your minds about the other house. I think you made the right decision. Your little guy is now free to roam all over the farmhouse.

    1. Haha Mary if you blinked you missed it!! lol it all happened so fast:)
