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!

admin - Thank you so much for your comment. I really appreciate it!

One Room Challenge- Week #2

We have finalized a few things for the One Room Challenge girls room project.  We knew we wanted to do wallpaper as a focal point at the head of the bed.  We also knew we wanted to incorporate navy into the room.  With those two things in mind I drew up a few design boards for the client.  Design boards are a great way to give people an overall view of a room, but they lack being able to show some of the crucial details.  It is fun to see how a room changes and comes together from this first step to the end product.

Any guesses which wallpaper direction we went with?  Tune in next week (after we receive the samples) to see…
