Today is an exciting day!! We installed the Gentry Project main bedroom for the One Room Challenge this week and I couldn’t be happier with how this space turned out! It’s all of my favorite things a room can be – colorful with neutral foundations, textural, layered and eclectic.
Here’s a look at how the room started when we got our hands on this old, dated house a few months ago. We’re wrapping up the entire house this month with our partners at the Treehouse Group Contracting. They’ve been awesome to work with and everything is looking so great! Get ready for LOTS more pretty spaces from this fun project. :)
We pulled out the carpet in here, installed new squared off windows, pulled down yellowed wallpaper and painted the faux beams a soft gray color. Since the ceilings are only about 8.5 ft tall, softening the color of the beams really helped the ceiling to feel higher.
If you remember from this post, we planned on hanging a soft leaf pattern wallpaper in here, but decided against it in the end. Wallpaper is SO pretty, but I know it’s not a look for everyone. We decided to stick with just white walls in here and let the curtains and the rug be the pattern stars of the room.
Speaking of the rug, Dash and Albert’s Kota rug was really our starting point for the design. The color variation and the pattern here are complete perfection. It really is a gorgeous rug, just like everything from Dash & Albert!
And I LOVE how the DIY grid pattern curtains turned out! Check out this post for the full tutorial. I used navy and black fabric paint in a brush pen to freehand a grid pattern. It only took a few hours to do all six panels and I’m so happy with how these look hung on our pretty black iron curtain hardware! (Pro tip: skip the clip option in favor of curtain rings and use drapery hooks for a more custom look!)
Those Yucca plants are faux and we got them from Hayneedle. They are seriously convincing and $53 is a great price for a really good faux plant (we bought two of them for more fullness).
Can you even handle this caramel leather bench?! It’s from Article and it is absolute perfection, right down to the tufting and the brass x-base!
This gorgeous chair is also from Article. It is the prettiest shade of warm blue gray and I love the wooden frame! Like all of the Article pieces I’ve ever used over the years, these two pieces are completely gorgeous and really well-made.
The striped blanket at the foot of the bed is also from The Mine and I’m obsessed with the oversized tassels!
Guys, this gorgeous oatmeal linen platform bed is only $350 for a Queen! We got it at Hayneedle and I could not have been more impressed with it when it arrived, especially considering the crazy-affordable price!
The pink tassel pillow was a test run for some ideas I’m throwing around for a Juniper Studio pillow line. Tell me, guys. would you buy a pillow this size? I love the blush color and those cute little tassels! I’m having a lot of fun with this new pillow line and I can’t wait to show you guys what we’ve been up to. :)
The art in the room is all from Jenny’s Print Shop. The tree print is called COTTONWOOD and the city scene here below is called MERCER. They’ll be in the shop very soon along with ten other new prints that you’re going to love! :)
The HUGE brass mirror is from The Mine. The glass is slightly antiqued and I love how it adds a little bit of moodiness to this light, bright space!
I think it’s perfect hanging over the DIY dresser we made with the extra long drawer pulls. Isn’t this color so pretty in here? Especially with that gorgeous navy lamp!
I hope you guys have loved following along with this makeover as much as we’ve loved doing the projects! I’m so proud of this space and I can’t wait to show you the rest of the Gentry Project!
