Bird Wallpaper for the ining Room |  Week 5 Fall ORC

Who doesn’t love a good bird wallpaper?  Luckily for me and my awesome clients, the dining room wallpaper is up and GLORIOUS!  I don’t want to give away all of the surprises until the big reveal, so I am showcasing the magical heron (or is it crane?) pattern with a maximalist day bed for now.  Check out the before, progress, and after on this spectacular dining room!

Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5 | Week 6 | Week 7 | Big Reveal

What is the ORC?

A big thanks to Linda for organizing the One Room Challenge 💃.  If you’ve never heard of the ORC then I’m excited to introduce you.  This is an exciting interior design event with 20 Featured Designers and hundreds of other Guest Participants .  Each of us will have 8 weeks to transform the room of our choice.

Even more fun? Better Homes and Gardens will be the media sponsor again this year.

Dining Room Before Bird Wallpaper

In case you are new here, this is what we started with when the clients recently decided to transform this space.

After the floors were refinished we hired Roni (IG:rchomeservicesllc) to remove some the the most 90’s elements to the built-ins.  He also installed two boxes for the overscaled chandeliers that were later installed.

Roni has been so kind, helpful, and professional, and it has been such a blessing to have him as part of the team.

Dining Room Kelly Moore Paint

If you were here last week, then you know that this was the state of the room after  Jose Painting and Decorating   carefully applying this gorgeous  Kelly Moore Paint- Navy Damask paint and primed the upper half of the walls.

Bird Wallpaper Progress

That was a great transition, but it was the next step is when things started to get REALLY FUN!  Enter gorgeous  Fine and Dandy Co. Paradis Orchid with Patina Wallcovering  installed by Jose from IG: @JV_wallpaper.  Jose and his crew are widely known in the DC area as the best wallpaper installers and I am thrilled to have them as part of this project.  They covered all electrical outlets, and even went “Bob Ross” and painted an outlet cover that couldn’t be removed.

Here is another progress shot of the gorgeous bird wallpaper.  

Bird Wallpaper

Like I mentioned before, I don’t want to spoil the surprise of the dining room reveal, so I am staging this space as something entirely different in the meantime.  I borrowed this twin bed from Verdigris and I think it looks glamorous with the Fine and Dandy Co. Paradis Orchid with Patina wallpaper.

Let’s talk about this  Fine and Dandy Co. Paradis Orchid with Patina bird wallpaper for a minute.  This is my third time using Fine and Dandy Wallpaper.  You may remember my powder room or my client’s dining room from makeovers past.  Despite trying to find another wallpaper that my client liked better (imagine weeks of searching and sampling), there just wasn’t anthing that excited my client’s as much as this option.  We kept coming back to it, and in the end knew that this was the very best choice.

We had two substrates to pick from.  After sampling both the Eco Friendly and Atelier, we decided that it was worth the splurge to invest in the Atelier.  The homeowners are so glad that they did because it has a subtle shimmer that reads like silk on the walls.  In fact, I have had a couple of contractors make that very statement.

Fine and Dandy Co. Paradis comes in a variety of colorways, but we thought this Orchid with Patina spoke to some exterior elements of the home and paired nicely with blue, the clients’ favorite color.

Dining Room Rug

Yesterday we unrolled this amazing  Annie Selke Samson Black Indoor Outdoor Rug and it made the room!  Now it feels so finished in here!  We are LOVING this rug because it pairs so beautifully with the wallpaper, is kid/pet friendly, and is thin and easy to slide chairs over.  We opted for a thin felt rug pad underneath and laid it all after we took the above images.  I assure you that it looks incredible.

If you are in the market for a rug, Annie Selke (Dash-Albert) is a great place to start.  They have fantastic selection, amazing quality, and great style. I have had a lot of luck finding really large rugs here, which isn’t always an easy task. Plus, you can order samples before you buy.

We will also be using Annie Selke drapes in the TV room.  More to come on that soon!

Dining Room Progress- More to Come

While I am not showing you what the room looks like until week 8, literally the only things left to do in this first of three rooms are:

1. Add citron drapes

2. Install Emtek Select knobs and pulls

3. Style and shoot

Fall 2021 One Room Challenge

The Entryway Plan

Good news and bad news on the entryway.  The good news is that the paint and wallpaper are complete and EPIC.  I will be walking you through all of that next week.

The chandelier is hung and truly timeless.

The bad news is that the burl table is now slated to be a few weeks late.  I’m scrabling to come up with a temporary solution for the big reveal.  I have ideas, and think I will be able to pull off a short-turn solution.  If you have been watching my IG Stories, then you may have seen some clues.

The TV Room Plan

The TV room is coming along beautifully.  This was a last minute addition the the ORC round up, but it very well may be a favorite for many.  The sofa is complete and should arrive in time for the big reveal.

The  Noir Honed Travertine Collection has been picked up from the The Tile Shop-, and our amazing General Contractor, Roni, will be starting in on that next week.

The Schaub Estate Dover Cabinet Pull tortoise shell hardware has arrive and I couldn’t be more obsessed.  You had me at tortoise shell…no really…you did.

Roni hung the Kuzco Fleur Chandelier- 44in last night and it is so unique and beautiful.

We are still looking for the perfect coffee table and large scale art for the room and hope to wrap that up shortly.
