2018 Fall ORC Ashley’s Eclectic Modern Master Bedroom Week 1

Hi everyone, Ashley here! I am excited to let you all know I am going to be a guest participant on the 2018 Fall ORC ! I decided to take on my master bedroom. It has needed a refresh for years now. It’s time!! I am going for a eclectic modern master bedroom. I hope you enjoy reading and watching the progress over the next 6 weeks for me and all the other One Room Challenge participants. You can find their posts linked here.

So for my inspiration…. 

I saw this picture and was immediately inspired:

The amount of texture and layers in this room is on point! I loved the idea of adding a green bed to incorporate my recently remodeled master bathroom that was painted Benjamin Moore’s Salamander. We already have some dark wood tones in a couple of mid century pieces I really want to use in the space. All of this was a great jumping off point. 

Then my hunt for a wallpaper began. I ordered about 30 samples until I found this one. I was beginning to think I was not going to find a grasscloth, but right at the last moment, it appeared. Grasscloth has a timeless look that I have always loved. Because of that I feel confident installing real wallpaper in this space. 

As I was considering my bed, I came across this picture of Brady Tolbert’s green bed.

Rocky did his tutorial on the spring ORC for a banquette. I loved the idea of a full wall headboard, just not the carpel tunnel that would result from making channels for a 15 foot wall. I have plans for a wall length headboard, just a little different. You will have to wait and see!  Thank you once again Brady for the inspiration! 

I went back and forth for a while with moodboards to see what I liked best. Here are my top three. All have minor changes, but result in a very different feel.





Here are some before shots of my bedroom in its current state:

The bedroom is obviously in a sad state. It has been the dumping ground of extra furniture and leftovers for to long. I am so excited to refresh this space! I hope you follow along these next 6 weeks for this 2018 Fall ORC challenge to see this space transform!
