Cozy Glam Cabin | ORC | Week Two

This week has been about narrowing down the vibe of the Cozy Glam Cabin (in layman's terms- my kids room).

I have decided on the main color scheme- red and green with hints of yellow, pink and blue...so basically every color BUT red and green will be the main stars. I want to make the room summery and wintery at the same time. I am very much into celebrating the seasons and want the room to shine all year long. In the summer I will add more pink pops and in the winter I'll go hard on the red/green.

When I design a room I almost always draft it up. I love playing with textures and patterns and I rely on renderings to make sure the scale of everything is harmonious. I can't wait to choose my wallpaper from Milton and King (one of my fantastic sponsors for the ORC)- I am just waiting on some samples but I have four that I think will be amazing in here. How cozy is this space looking already!


Once I choose the wallpaper I have to choose a coordinating fabric to upholster the closet doors. I can't tell you how excited I am for this part of the room. My inspiration is from an old family friend who has his guest room walls all upholstered and it looks incredible! Here is a picture of his stunning room:




Things to do this week:

-decide on wallpaper from my fabulous sponsor Milton and King (the wallpaper in my 3D rendering is one of theirs and I am in love but not 100% sure yet if it is the ultimate winner for the space- it's called Bohemian Wrap).

-choose a coordinating rug from the vast library of vintage rugs from my sponsor Revival Rugs (pictured in my rendering is one of their stunning pieces- I am SO exited about having one of their rugs in my home!).

-order batting for my closet door upholstery project.

-order fabric for my closet doors.

-keep searching for a sofa on FBMP- I know the perfect beauty is out there waiting to pop into my life!


Okay, on to what I have so far! Let's chat about my Facebook Marketplace finds!

I have picked up some second hand items from Facebook marketplace. I love finding pieces on there because you often find unique things that you weren't even thinking about. For example I found the perfect bedside table that is red with little shapes inlaid.



Pro Facebook Marketplace Tip:

When I saw the bedside table of my dreams it was already "pending"- I quickly messaged the seller and offered 10% over asking and told her I could pick it up at her earliest convenience. And it worked! It may seem ruthless but when you see a hot deal, you need to jump on it, especially in this competitive FBMP market.


Next item I found were the cabin beds of my dreams! They are log beds with beautiful natural character that will really make this space cozy. So this listing had been live for a few months...why wasn't it selling? Because of blurry bad photos. There were two photos: an extreme close up with artificial lighting and an extreme blurry wide shot that you couldn't see any detail. So I used this to my benefit and offered half of the asking price and it worked.



FBMP Tip:

If a listing has been active for longer than a week then you can offer less than asking and barter!


If you were following me on my instagram page last weekend you'll have seen that for Mother's Day I asked my family to come on a road trip with me to New Jersey to pick up roman shades and then to Connecticut to pick up curtain fabric. I had a poll going to guess which piece I was on my way to get, this was the final division:




Did you guess correctly? Here is what I snagged!


I love these Osborn and Little custom drapes! the reverse has a red plaid and they are so well made. Definitely give me Harry Potter vibes mixed with a little Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe! Four panels for $25- I couldn't refuse.

I ended up with the red stripe roman shades- I want them to just blend in since I will be going bold with the wallpaper!
