We are back to the Spring of 2022 One Room Challenge and we’re working on guest bedroom 2 in our house. So here’s what’s happening!
Welcome to Week Two!
It’s officially the crisis week in the challenge and I guess I should just be happy that it’s hitting early in the process instead of later.
Later in the challenge means that shipping dates don’t work and tears are shed. At this point I’m just a little frustrated but I still have plenty of time to overcome it.
Or at least I think I do.
So let’s recap!
Week One Recap
Last week I shared an inspiration board/mood board for my design for this room.
Boom -this week it looks nothing like the one that I shared.
Well it still looks a little like the one I shared but I’ve changed up quite a bit so I’m going to share my new inspiration photo’s with you.
The top photo is by one of my favorite’s on TikTok. She created this Florida bedroom in three days and it was a pretty fun project to watch. I actually ordered the same stencil to try for my project!
The middle photo I found on Pinterest and I’m sure it belongs to a designer but I haven’t found them yet. It has the bold contrast that I love and I plan to include the coral’s and pinks that I was already planning to use.
The bottom photo is an amazing before and after. I love the full paint and the wallpapered ceiling. I won’t be able to do that in this room but it certainly got my attention so I’ve saved it for inspiration.
I loved the design board that I created and I have wallpaper samples hanging on the walls and an order in the cart.
After I finished my design board and shared it I realized that it was gorgeous, but it was missing some contrast.
I needed more contrast to give me the bold pop that I’m looking for.
Of course I couldn’t just change up one thing, I had to change the majority of the design elements!
So the progress for the first week has been getting the walls prepped and primer’d.
Now it’s decision time!
Week 2 Goals
Before I can keep moving forward with my project I’ve got to determine what color I want the ceiling to be.
In the previous plan it was going to be painted a darker color because the walls were going to be white, or wallpapered. I was really only planning to wallpaper one wall and leave the others white or a very pale pink.
Now the walls are going to be blue.
Instead of wallpaper I’m planning to use a stencil to add a design.
If the stencil is quick and easy I may do the entire room but if it’s too hard or time consuming I will go back to the one wall idea.
So the big question now is white ceiling or blue ceiling?
The next question is paint the trim or leave it?
The trim needs paint, but it’s more work than I really want to do. And it’s a domino effect because if I paint the trim in this room you know I’m going to keep on painting trim throughout the house.
Not a small project.

Projects to complete
The plan for this week is paint. That means making the decision and getting the paint finished. The walls and ceiling anyway.
Once I’ve got those painted I can decide on the trim – it’s another question of color or white. It’s currently white-ish. It’s a few shades since it’s been painted and it’s got some age and sun damage to it.
I would be able to move further into the project but we are going to be in Boston for the remainder of this week so no progress will be made before next week’s update.
