One Room Challenge Week 6 : Kids room reveal !

We made it to week 6 not completely done with the space but very very close to it and I’m proud of that. I am absolutely in love with how it all turned out and what’s more exciting is that my daughter loves her room. Not only that but Junior loved the design so much he asked me the other day if we can do all the trim in the house black lol. I doubt that will happen but it’s nice to know that he loves my design as well because we usually but heads when it comes to that.

We still have a few more things to do like
  • Get dresser
  • Get door knob for closet 
  • Update inside the closet 
  • Hang television
  • Add book shelves
 I will keep you guys posted on those updates as I get them done. Follow me on Instagram to get the updates @paloma.gzn @casadepaloma. Just in case you guys forgot what the space looked like before here is a little refresher.
Before



After

I went with a classic color palette of black of and white because it was perfect for both a girl and a boy. I added a pop of yellow because it is such a fun color and I love it against the black and white. I kept the yellow muted to keep the room a little bit more sophisticated. What I love about the design is that it's a room the kids can grow in. It's not to childish and It's a room I enjoy as well. When designing kids room I think the parents should love the room just as much as the kids and it should work with the rest of your home too.


In this empty space is where the dresser and the tv will go.


I was going to add a fun print to the room but then decided to add pictures of the kids instead to make it more personal. My daughter loved it when she saw it because she didn't expect it.



The black doors is one of my favorite things in the room. I love how the brass hardware looks against the black.



Like I said we still have a few finishing touches to add as you can see here but I shot it anyways so you guys could see the doors. I just love them so much lol.



Hope you guys enjoyed the transformation process and following along with me. Don't forget to check out all the other One room challenge  guest participant reveals, they are soo good !
Until next time xo Paloma.

One Room Challenge Week 4&5 : Kids Room


Week 4 & 5 update, I'm really starting to wonder if I will finish on time because I've been very busy with life lately but I have made some more progress on the kids room. So I painted the doors finally and ended up painting them black to match the trim and I love it! I also got the radiator painted now it's nice a bright instead of beige and dingy. I am still working on the closet but I have a strong feeling that will not be finished on time for the reveal.

I still don't have the dresser which will be arriving after the reveal but the new rug came in and both my daughter and I love it which is great because I really didn't want to have to send the rug back again. I Still have a lot of little things to do to pull everything together but for the most part I'm almost done if that counts lol.

THINGS TO DO STILL :

  • Hang book ledges
  • Change door hardware and hang them
  • Paint closet interior
  • Add shelves and another rod to the closet
  • Get Ikea dresser and change knobs
  • Hang television
  • Add star decal to the ceiling 
  • DECORATE !

One Room Challenge Week 3 : Design Plan

Here we are Week 3 of the One Room Challenge we are half way through this and it can only get better from here right ? This week I haven't made much progress other than finalizing my design plan and making some much needed decisions. My daughter decided she wanted to add a wall decal like the polka dot decal she had in her old room. This time we choose a star decal that I am going to put on the ceiling. I think it'll add a fun and whimsical touch to the room we are both excited for that.

We decided to leave the door in the room white(I will probably change my mind later) they will be getting a fresh coat of paint and hopefully new hardware. I already purchased the curtains and curtain rods for the windows. I also ordered a rug(not the one on the board) If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen it on my stories. I thought the color and style would work in the space but it didn't at all. I am now putting in the order for the new rug and a few other decor pieces for the room (the best part). The Lucite pulls are one of my favorite details in the space, I will be adding them to the Ikea dresser that is going in the room. So many little details that I'm loving in this space and I'm excited to see it all come together.

So as you can see things are moving right along slowly but surely there are still a few things that have to get done but we are almost at the finish line. Have you checked out some of the other guest participant rooms yet ? Some of these renos and makeovers are insane I love it ! head on over to the One Room Challenge blog and check them out.
See you guys next week xo Paloma

One Room Challenge Week 2: Floors and Paint


Welcome back to week 2 of the One Room Challenge. We've made a lot of progress this week and I am sooo excited because I don't have to look at the disastrous mess that was my floors any longer.  Yay me ! My brother in Law sent over a family friend to re-do our floors and they came out great I love the color. Now I don't need to keep the door in this room closed anymore. Since I also painted I pass by this room everyday and just stare with a smile on my face. I'm so happy with the progress and how everything is coming along.

I finally got some paint on the walls as well we went with Ultra Pure White by Behr and for the trim we went with Tricorn Black by Sherwin Williams. You don't understand how happy with how it came out. I love the contrast of the trim against the white walls, my daughter loved it as well which means, extra points for mom! The room already looks so much better with the few changes we've made. I'm more excited now to see how it will look in the end.


 By the way guess what? since the walls are painted and the floors are done the kids are finally in their own room (I'm doing my happy dance). As far as painting goes I only have the closet, doors and radiator left to paint also a few touch ups here and there. So when I get to those things they can stay in my room again (one more night wont hurt anybody). My biggest dilemma now is whether I should paint the room and closet doors black or leave them white and until I decide that I can't buy hardware because I can't decide what color hardware I want for the doors either. Hopefully I'll make a decision on that before week 6 sneaks up on me.


Next on my list is the closet I'm thinking of doing a fun wall decal in there and I have re configure certain things in there as well. I want to add shoe shelves and maybe another rod so her and the baby can have their own. We've gotten a lot done but there is still so much more to do. What do you guys think about the progress so far ? let me know in the comments. Don't forget to check out the rest of rooms getting makeovers this season over at One Room Challenge

On My List: Fall 2018 interior Design Books

Who doesn't love to curl up on the couch with a cozy blanket some hot chocolate, or what ever you hot drink lovers like to drink (I'm not a fan of hot drinks) and read a good book? I love reading all year long it's one of my favorite hobbies. I've always said in my dream home I will have a library Like the one Beast gave Belle in the movie, a girl can dream can't she. Fashion Books and Interior Design books are some of my favorite because they are so pretty to look at and filled with so much inspiration. They are also great for decorating with. This fall season so many great books are coming out and I can't wait to hide the Amazon boxes from Mr. J !
