Master "peace" bedroom- One Room Challenge Fall 2018- Week 1

Hi everyone!

I am super exited to announce I will be participating as a guest in this fall’s One Room Challenge. I came across this Challenge a few months ago and was blown away by its purpose of inspiring and motivating everyone who participate to finish a room in 6 weeks. If you are already interested, you can read more here.


During the next 6 weeks I will be transforming my master bedroom. I am going to be honest here, we moved to our house over 2 years ago, and all you can find in my room is a king bed, two night stands and… that’s it! I took as a priority designing other rooms, like my children’s bedrooms and living spaces since it is were we spend most of our time. In a way, this has a positive side: I have a blank canvas to work with!

It is challenging to design spaces for myself but on the bright side I already know what I need and want in this space. The room is quite large and very bright, so there is more than enough space to design a lounge space to read, write or just sit down and unwind. I am looking to do a window treatment that will allow the space to be dark when its time to sleep and also bright during the day. I am really inspired by some mid century modern furniture I found and will use those pieces as focal points.

I am looking to evoke feelings in this room, I think it is in the bedroom where we meditate about our day and life, and everyday I am thankful for my husband and kids. I want this space to show who we are as a family. As for color pallete I chose green as my dominant tone and a few other cheerful ones. Green reminds me so much of my home country Guatemala, for its green landscape. It is in a way a tribute to our roots, and the color is also very relaxing.
