One Room Challenge Complete (Finally!)


It's been a full month and a half since my last post detailing my experience as a guest participant in the Better Homes & Gardens One Room Challenge! Yikes! Welp, I don't want to bore you with a bunch of excuses, albeit very valid ones, but I do want to reiterate that I moved into this home and in the same week, joined a national design challenge. LOL Who does that? And right as we were entering the holiday season??!! So besides all of the normal holiday stressors, a pandemic, juggling multiple businesses and 2 kids; I was decorating/organizing the entire house at once so getting my own bedroom together was low on the list of priorities.

But regardless, it's done now. YAY!


Here's a Before & After from the same viewpoint.

I've come a long way in the couple of months I've been here to complete my "Garden of Eden" bedroom design...

I mean though, is a room ever really done? I would say all of the important elements are completed but I'm already imagining candle sconces above my bed on both sides of the newest edition to the room, an art print from M. Koby Art. And real plants (besides the one on my dresser), as well as decal birds flying up to my vaulted ceiling.


Here is the concept board for the room design:



Since the last post I've added a small sheepskin rug, tropical leaf wall decals, a water feature, and the swing.

So, without further ado, here are the "final" photos of my sleeping quarters.

My Garden of Eden-inspired bedroom really does provide a zen experience that speaks to most of my senses: the sound of the water, the intoxicating scent of the Zodiac Candle (from Target), the comfort of the sumptously soft throw and sheepskin rug to step onto first thing in the morning, the positive vibes from the crystals and of course the pretty sights and colors that imitate nature. When I open my eyes in the morning, I am encouraged by the quote on the wall that no matter what I will encounter in my day, I will prevail because "With God All Things are Possible."

If a bedroom doesn't provide more than just sleep, it's not doing enough.
