Wood, wood everywhere…

I have not written a blog post for a while, but I am hoping to get back at it.  To start off my dry spell, I have to write a post about a very cool watch that I came across.  The company is Jord watches.  They sell womens watches as well as mens watches.  Typically fashion is not my focus here, but one of the things that I have been using in home decor recently is a ton of natural wood.  I have noticed that my trends in home decor tend to coincide with my fashion sense as well.  Right now natural wood is everywhere so when I found this watch made entirely of wood I had to look into it more thoroughly.  Jord watches are made extremely well and the watch that I got has black wood and gold accents.  What is more perfect then wood, black and gold all in one piece!?!  I love the watch.   The style that I received is called the Frankie in Ebony and Gold.  The watch came in very professional packaging. Adorable wood box with a pillow placed inside and the watch wrapped nicely around the pillow.  The watch has a push clasp making it easy to put on and off.  It is made out of beautiful wood.  My particular style is stained a black, with a slight wood grain showing through.  The site has many unique watches, all with beautiful wood tones.  Take a look at JORD watches and get your fall accessories now!  Now here is the best part…JORD is giving one of my readers the chance to win $75 toward the shop…and even if you don’t win, every entry will get a code for a $20 E- card.  Go here to enter.

One Room Challenge- Week 6

Well…my one room challenge ended up “mostly” finished.  The wallpaper and paint turned out great.  The bed and night stand are darling.  The art above the bed and the hanging chair are favorite pieces.  The lighting in these pictures and the fact that I don’t have prints in the frames yet are the “failing” parts.  Sometimes being a mom to four, full time and working part time is a hard thing to do.  I will get professional photos eventually, but for now…here is my one room challenge in all of its unfinished glory.  To view all of the other beautiful rooms visit here.  To view more of the before photos of this room visit here.  And…don’t forget to add me on instagram @sallyjenseninteriors…


Remember the before….


And here it is now…

One Room Challenge Week 5! (and 4…whoops)

Ok friends, I have had a busy few weeks and missed posting my progress last week.  Here is my short list of what has happened these past two weeks for my one room challenge:

  1. Received the night stand…love it, but I do want to paint the campaign hardware brass.IMG_0491
  2. Decided on the white color for the three walls that will not be getting wallpaper.  I chose Benjamin Moore Simply White.  It is a great one and the walls have now been painted.CFF266D1-AA84-43A4-9A8E-85B5A562FC7B
  3. This print from minted, is on its way.

One Room Challenge- Week 3

Well friends, this has been a fun week because things that have been ordered are arriving on my doorstep. Wallpaper has been chosen and this picture below is why ordering samples is a must. The original plan was to use the wallpaper on the left  See the original design plans from week #2 here. We wanted something with a darker background to pop. When I received the samples there were gray plaid lines throughout the flowers which I could not see online. It also has a shine to it.  Although I still love it, it wasn’t the right choice for a preteen girls room.  I wanted something more simple and clean.  I was lucky enough to find the one on the right, which is what the original one looked like in my head before I received samples.


And here is the new design board with the wallpaper that we chose.

It it is hard to show actual progress when it is for a client because most of the room will be installed all on one day, but we have received a few fun purchases…rug, hanging chair, and bed (not shown).

Tiina - oh this is going to be fabulous! You are so right, samples are a must! I’m working with products and we are just launching wallpapers and fabric by meters, and I’m hoping that our clients understands the value of ordering samples in advance, just to avoid expensive returns. Great work!

Angela Eckard - Beautiful choices and good suggestion to order samples! Who is the wallpaper by that you will be using in the room? Thanks!

admin - Thank you so much for looking! The wallpaper is by thibaut and it is called Cabrera.

admin - Thank you so much for your comment! How exciting for you!

Rachel Bauer - Love the wallpaper you chose!
