One Room Challenge {Week Four} – Modern Bedroom Decor

Modern Bedroom Decor

Welcome to week four of the One Room Challenge! If you are just joining me for this six week challenge, start here with our Guest Bedroom Design Plans! The challenge, set out by Calling It Home, challenges bloggers to completely redesign a space in only 6 weeks. So far, I’ve set out my design plans, I prepped and painted my room, and I laid down new flooring. Now it’s time to shop! IMG_9066

Week 1 / Week 2 / Week 3 / Week 4 / Week 5

First… a bedroom update!

Here’s where the room was at the end of last week ^^. Honestly, we haven’t accomplished that much on the actual room this week. Once the floor was down, it was time to start putting the trim back up. Trim work is SOOO time consuming. It’s so hard to spend SO much time on projects in this room that will barely be noticed, but it had to be done. And it had to be done right!


Here’s where we are now. I know it doesn’t look like much, but the trim is in, the trim is sanded, and it’s primed. Phew. Almost there.


The photo below shows the trim in the room before the reno started. It was traditional and showy, and not really a match for our new modern-industrial style. So it had to go.


Our new trim is sleek and modern. The lines are straight and beautiful. I couldn’t be happier with how it all looks!

Then came the blinds…


These old plastic eye sores had to go. My husband was sure  that we could still use them (bless his cheap dutch soul), but I squashed his plans. I really don’t like them at all, and I couldn’t wait to replace them!


I wanted something that wouldn’t be very expensive (good-bye beautiful bamboo shades….), that would let a lot of light in (ahem.. basement bedroom), and something that would look great on its own. There are NO curtains being added to this window.

Our local store, Sheer Illusions, came to the rescue! The staff pointed me to these beautiful faux wood blinds, They are the right price, they look great, and they come in a ton of shades. Perfect!


After reviewing all of the colour options, we decided to go with Walnut. I love the colour on its own and against our new paint colour.


I also love the contrast of the new blinds against the flooring and other wood elements in the room. I love mixing different stains and metals into the same room. Don’t be afraid to add new colours!!


Can’t wait to hang these beautiful blinds from Sheer Illusions!

Although it doesn’t seem like I did much this week… I DID manage to get some shopping done!! I found a few affordable modern bedroom decor pieces that will be on display in a couple of weeks when the room is ready! I can’t wait to see how it all comes together.

In the meantime, shop for yourself! Enjoy :)

The trim on the pony wall . . . I assume it's two pieces. Could you give some details? You've done such as great job that it looks like one! I have the same kind of wall in the guest room in our basement but it's never been trimmed and I want to do that. What you did is exactly the look I had in mind.

I love your pillows on your Mood Board-those little details make all of the difference! Great job and can't wait to see the finished space!

Beautiful and love the blinds! We have those cheap ones too because it was too expensive for our tight budget when we moved in (there are 24 windows in the house!). Can't wait to replace them someday.

This room is coming along so well! I think those blinds will be perfect... I actually think I might have those same ones on the main floor of our house :) Good luck! I know. So much to do, so little time...

Your trim looks really nice. Those faux-wood blinds are great. The walnut color you chose is beautiful. I'm convinced - I have to rip the plastic (vinyl) mini-blind out of the window in my guest room, too! I can't believe that thing has been there since we moved in almost seven years ago. I really neglected the guest room! I'm going shopping just as you suggested!
