It's week 6 of the One Room Challenge, and as I mentioned last week, this is sort of a "bonus" week before the reveal on week 7. I'm not going to lie, I really need this extra week to get to the finish line, so I'm so grateful the contest was extended. Originally we were going to finish up the installation this week so that we could get everything photographed, but when my other niece caught a stomach bug, our plans changed. Hopefully everyone will be feeling better by this weekend and we can get everything finished. In the meantime, this gives me the perfect opportunity to give you a sneak peek at the artwork for the room.
If you know me really well you will know:
- I love graphic art
- I find puns hilarious, and I love a cheesy play on words (Like LOVE. I used to throw an annual oscar party where every passed appetizer and cocktail was named after a best picture- Foods like "Winter's Bone-in Lamb Chops" , "True Grits" and drinks like "The Blind Side Car")
- The Wizard of Oz has always been one of my favorite movies
With all of that said, the second my niece mentioned she wanted to do a rainbow themed bedroom, I knew exactly what I wanted to get her to make the idea come to life. I told you guys there would be 2 places in this room where I would be bringing in a literal rainbow and this is the second:
This print just makes me happy, and it makes me chuckle to myself a little bit every time I see it. Even though I'm just sharing it with you now in week 6, this was actually the very first thing on my design board when we started this room.
While I love the print itself, it comes in an awkward size (18x23) so I knew it would need a custom frame. Enter the awesome team at Framebridge who provided the frame for this room. I've worked with them on a number of projects and have honestly never been disappointed. They offer stylish frames that are quick to ship and affordable. Best of all, they let you preview your design in each of their frames so you know exactly what you will be getting. All you do is upload a jpeg and boom, dozens of options appear. So many of my clients have a tough time visualizing what something will look like in a room, and this tool makes it much easier to show them. All in all, Framebridge is one of my go to resources. If you're interested in checking them out as well, you can head to their site here, and enter katesmith15 for 15% off your first order.
Even though I had a ton of different options, I wanted to keep the frame for this print clean and simple so it didn't distract from the art itself. I went with the "irvine slim" in white, and I added a yellow accent mat to tie back to the room wall color, and really give a custom look.
You'll have to check back next week to see the piece styled in the room (I promise I'm not just being coy, it has yet to be hung. Refer back to earlier plague delay), but for now here is a sneak peek. I absolutely love it, and think it will add the perfect finishing touch to bring it all together.
In the meantime, make sue to follow along with all of the other ORC guest participants here.
