one room challenge: week 5

This one room challenge post will be I'm trying to multitask and also enjoy this little vacay.  I'm not going to lie though panic mode had kicked in that a reveal is next week.  Here is where I left you last with progress just incase you missed it.  Since then I have purchased a few small and big things.

I picked up this art to try over the bedside tables...fingers crossed they work!

As you know I have also gone back and forth with rugs...with no luck!  So I drug my sister with me to the Ikea in Denver to check them out...Im already planning on making the trek to ATL early next week once I'm back in town.  I was sold on the Tarnby and binding two together would make the perfect room size rug...sold!  Until I started reading reviews and people say it constantly sheds a sand like piles of no thanks to ruining my hardwood floors.  Have any of you used this rug?  Reviews welcome!

So I'm thinking of going with the West Elm Jute Boucle in either ivory or platinum...Have any of you used this one?!

I already had some Ikea Ritva curtains in charcoal grey I was thinking of using...but they have just come out with black so I picked up a pair to worries they will look NOTHING like they do in this stock photo when I'm done with them!

We also came across a Restoration Hardware Outlet where I picked up this faux fur oversized lumbar in love!

And because you stuck around for my panic mode here are some pics from the RH outlet that I just have to share....I am now dying to do a chic play amaze are these pieces for little tots!

To die right?!

Go check out everyone else's progress here!


  1. Looks like you have picked up a lot of really nice things. Looking forward to seeing how it all comes together.

  2. Love the artwork! Can't wait to see everything come together!

  3. Hi! Such a great blog! I look forward to following! :)

  4. Can't wait to see all of this come together!

  5. No feedback to offer on the West Elm rug but I'm completely happy with my sea grass from Overstock. Super budget friendy too!!

  6. I have a jute rug from overstock. They don't shed like wool does but boy, it does leave a mighty heap of dust underneath! I love the look of it but it depends on how much of a germaphobe you are. Good luck, your choices are fabulous, can't wait to see it all done next week!

  7. I have the Ikea jute rug and it's great for me. I did hear that if you have cat's you should not get one. They will scratch it up?? Enjoy your break.

  8. Love watching your room come together! I have always been a fan of that Ikea bed and the dwell bedding. I've never used a jute rug before.....mostly seagrass which is a perfect product as far as I am concerned.

  9. Love your style girl! Can't wait for next week to see if all together!

  10. I have been dying to visit the RH outlet, if only it wasn't on the other side of the country! Can't wait to see how it all turns out, I love the things you've got going so far.
