Editing: the Unglamorous Side of Design – ORC Week 2

Happy week 2 of the One Room Challenge, everyone! Not much of a post today. This week I’ve been focused on something that’s not very exciting, but really crucial: editing.

Removing the excess things that I know I don’t want in the room. So far I’ve removed:

  • three mirrors that will belong in a different room
  • my photo printer and office printer! We found another home for them.
  • a giant decorative frame
  • various office supplies that I don’t use often
  • a lamp that needs to be repaired
  • a chair and an upholstered bench that didn’t quite fit right

It’s not the most exciting! But editing out the things that aren’t serving the space gives you a chance to reset the room. A blank canvas is so much easier to work with than a cluttered room!

So what are the steps we need to take to make this study space functional?

  • finish editing my stuff and find a home for everything
  • rearrange my rug so the door doesn’t catch on it
  • moody accent wall — I’ve got a crazy experiment for this one!
  • bring in some unkillable, don’t-need-too-much-sun plants
  • hang artwork
  • hang lights above reading chair
  • optimize desktop and workspace for easy access

 

Also, I’m super excited about something I found at a local thrift store. Here’s a sneak peek at the piece…
