One Room Challenge: Post 4

I've got a blank space baby, and I'll find some orange....

So here we are, three weeks along.  Now, the middle part of an interior design project is not pretty.  Have you ever visited an artist and seen a painting partially done?  It is not a pretty site. This is true of Interior Design.  Catching a project in the middle is scary if you are not the designer.  Like artists, Interior Designers have the final picture in their head the entire time.  This is what keeps us going, otherwise we may very well give up somewhere in between.  Luckily, I have a pretty picture of what this is going to become tucked away in my head.  So while this may look appalling to you, to me its the means to the end.

That disclaimer in place I can discuss my progress.

The pattern for the wall behind the bed has been laid out and the first layer of paint applied.  I am happy with the pattern.  It is more dynamic than stripes, and has more meaning as it is indigenous to the architecture of the area.  I am happy with it indeed.

The frames that I originally showed to be hung over each bed, I have now decided to move them to the far wall.  I moved the dresser out of the way, and I will be taking it out and replacing it with a compfy chair. The frames will now hang on the far wall, side by side, there will be orange behind or in them, and I am working on some other ideas of what perhaps they may frame.

Here is the far wall:

I am off to find my orange tomorrow!

The plan is to paint the orange, in as many coats as needed and then go back and put a second layer of blue over the existing first layer and define edges more carefully.

I also need to get said compfy chair in place.  And evaluate whether simple orange behind the frames is enough or if more design is needed.

So there you go, midway and a to do list.  I am excited with the progress and continuing to progress and move toward the final.  The image in my head is getting realized with each brush stroke.

Continue to stay tuned and thank you, as always, for reading!
