ONE WEEK CHALLENGE FALL 2016 WEEK TWO






Deadlines are over-rated.  I mean OK.... yes I perform better when I have one but still they can be irritating.

It's been a week since I shared with you the design train that was my bedroom over the years and now it is time to reveal the plan. Here we are....20 designers all working hard to give you a huge reveal in 5 weeks.  

Linda is sitting back... filing her nails, drinking some cute drink with an umbrella in it [she lives in Florida after all] and happy that she is running the show instead of participating:)

This ORC gig is like the hot boyfriend you know you need to dump.....every time you go out with him you have so much fun and he wows you with his charm.... but you just can't do it.....hee haw.  

I have been pulling my hair out trying to nail down my plan.  I was torn between doing something with color because after all that is what photographs the best but let's face it people that was the old me:)  I gotta stay true to my style.


I thought about some designers whose work I admire....Daryl Carter, Beth Webb....Bob Brown and searched a bit on Pinterest to look for inspiration.

Lisa Sherry


Bob Brown

The common ground is black, neutrals, texture and layering.




OK....let's discuss......  
1. Since I got rid of the white armoire I moved the dresser to another wall and want to use this console to hang the birds over.





2. I ordered this small Bernhardt dresser to replace the white one.  I am keeping the table-skirt on the other side.

3. The lamps from Currey and Co will give me some nice contrast against the white walls.....

4. I ordered this wool Karastan carpet [one of the ORC sponsors].  Its called Leighland in Aspen Bark



5.  Picked 4 of these up at Scott's on Friday.


6.  This Ralph Lauren fabric will be somewhere!

7. Can't decide if I want a dark brown mohair headboard or stay white....thoughts?  Keep in mind that mohair is $$$.....just sayin.

8.  I also scored this pillow.

I moved my larger dark dresser to where the armoire was and I will have a TV mounted over it.  Switching this one we just bought with a much smaller one in the family room.





 I would love to find a pretty vintage saddle leather chair but that might be pushing it:)

Daryl Carter

And....as much as I ADORE the console table above this one would allow me to add some books and "pretty things".....


And the last thing I'm doing is changing out all the trim and having a fresh coat of my favorite BM White Dove painted.  Metrie another ORC sponsor who generously supplied me with the same backband trim I used in my kitchen reno!

Well cha think?  

Can I do it?  

Will it get done?  Or will I spiral down......

Stay tuned for complete chaos! 

Review week one here 

Of course you must take a visit to these talented bloggers to see what's up with their projects!

Sherry,

I'm really loving your ORC plan! The bird prints from Scotts are fabulous and I adore that Bernhardt dresser you've ordered.
The mohair headboard would be so gorgeous but would it show your sweet dog's hair?
Can't wait to see it all come together...

Another fantastic plan Sherry!! I am so excited to see all of this come together. I agree mohair would be so amazing but would it hold up over time? Can't wait! xo Cyndy

Love the direction you're headed- going to be so pretty! Love love the bird prints, I wish that guy from Scotts would come back to Lakewood! I got some great prints from him a few years ago. Love the mohair idea & would add great texture! Can't wait to see what you Sh-do!! xo

Kathysue said...

I have faith in you, I know you can do it!! Love your direction it is quintessential Sherry!

Wonderful Life! said...

You did find great inspiration at Scott! Brown mohair would be lovely but it will show dust...not that your house has any...but at my place...just sayin..
I can't wait to see more details, have a great week. Cathy

Deborah said...

As with everything you do I love your plan. My two cents, since you asked-brown mohair. The linen would be lovely, but I think the mohair would be just a little more "wow"! Having two dogs myself the comment about dog hair made me pause for a moment, but I think the reality would be there would always be pillows against the base of the headboard. I think Cami's impact would be minimal.

Love your inspiration rooms! Can't wait to see what you create!

i am glad you haven't dumped the ORC boyfriend, because hearing about your process is engaging and hilarious. of course you will pull this off by the deadline. you're sherry frackin hart. i just painted a bedroom white that had been BM ashley gray (for a year), and omg that was a headache and took a zillion coats. but i love it and i say paint yours white (so shocking that i am an ambassador for white, oui? xox

Since it's your $$ I say mohair. You could not beak up with me if you tried, and where is my cocktail? I know this will have a happy ending. Hang in there.

I'm not sure which I like more, your taste or your humor. :) It's going to be beautiful!

Katherine~FurnishMyWay said...

This is going to be such a gorgeous room. Keep on keeping on! Almost there!

Tricia said...

I love it all!!! I hate deadlines too because they always mean no sleep for me! But in your case that can mean tumbling into bed in that gorgeous room when this is all said and done! Here's to bad boyfriends! Cheers!

It's funny how you feel like a misfit (you're not!) because you don't work with a riot of color. I think your style is refreshing and soulful, and I can't wait to see how it turns out!

Laura Lane said...

julia peter said...
