As you know I love sourcing vintage furniture and accessories for my clients.  At the beginning of the ORC, I took a little road trip to Dallas and found some amazing pieces for this space.  The nightstands above + the chrome lamps are from Scout Design Studio.   See their transformations (week No. 3 + week No. 4).  The bed is from CB2 and I just love how it looks against the Storm Print Wallpaper by Lindsay Cowels.

The One Room Challenge / Week No. 5

photo 2-1

Welcome to week No. 5!  This One Room Challenge has gone by incredibly fast–I cannot believe we are already planning our little photo shoot.  If you are just stopping by make sure to catch up  and see what we have accomplished so far (Week No. 1, Week No. 2, Week No. 3, Week No. 4).  This week was all about accessories, my favorite part of the design process.   I had a lot of fun accessorizing this space.  Above, you can see that we are using the Kelly Wearstler Feline fabric, in black,  mixed with a few Stone Textile pieces for pillows.

The brush stroke duvet cover from ORC sponsor Wayfair
is incredible in person.  I also picked up our custom curtains and hung them this week, I am so glad I went with this deep turquoise color opposed to black.  The beaded pillow + decorative box is from Home Goods + the copper woven mini pillow is from our Stone Textile shop.

I also picked up our little vintage brass stool from the upholsterer –the pop of blue will be really nice against the darker curtains.

Our marble planters are planted and ready to go for the photo shoot.  Lets hope I don’t kill them before the weekend.  Love the marble against the B+W Storm Wallpaper by Lindsay Cowels.

We said goodbye to the huge ceiling fan and replaced it with this beautiful Jonathan Adler  fixture from ORC sponsor, Lamps Plus.  SUCH. A. DIFFERENCE.

The black diamond shaped mirror was hung as well…

My assistant, Audrey, completed yet another perfect DIY project.  We used the extra wallpaper to spruce up the vintage armoire. I love the rich brown with the black + white pattern.

One Room Challenge / Week No. 4

photo 1

Welcome to week No. 4.  Wow, this whole ORC thing is really flying by!  We are getting down to the wire here.  Take a look at what we have accomplished so far (week No.1, week No. 2, Week No. 3)  I am happy to report that we have made a lot of progress this week.  A lot of furniture has been delivered and a lot of DIY projects have been completed.  Above:  The Silhouette Bed by CB2 is pretty amazing in person.  I love how it looks with our wallpaper by Lindsay Cowels.

The vintage nightstands we purchased at Scout Design Studio, in Dallas, came back from being professionally lacquered.  The pop of color is just what this room needed.  They are so shiny and pretty.  I could live in a room full of lacquered pieces.  I may have a lacquer problem….

Since I am pregnant, I am trying to stay clear of toxic fumes.  That has been interesting when you design + remodel houses for a living.  Luckily my assistant is an A+ DIY-er.  She tackled the white lamp shades this week.  They look so much better in black.  Wait until you see them against the wallpaper.

She also spray-painted the vintage diamond shaped mirror matte black.  It will make such a statement on the wall.

A bunch of accessories have also arrived. We picked out this abstract black + white duvet coverlet from ORC sponsor, Wayfair
I love mixing bold prints so this was a fun choice for the end of the bed against the wallpaper.  We also received some beautiful modern art from Minted’s Art Marketplace.  Looking forward to hanging both pieces on the walls.  Thank you to Wayfair
for sponsoring!

This week we will be working on finalizing our bedding + pillow selections for the bed, hanging curtains, installing light fixtures, hanging art, upholstering the vintage bench, doing the armoire DIY, and setting up the space for our little week 6 photo shoot.

The Stone Textile Tie Dye Patchwork Pillow is a front runner for the bed andWayfair also sent two of these amazing black leather shag rugs for the space.  They look great at the foot of each side of the bed.

One Room Challenge / Week No. 3

ORC_wallpaper-rolls

Welcome to week 3!  I wanted to start off by saying how grateful I am for all of the kind words on my recent Lonny Magazine feature.   I was so honored to see our Austin home in the October issue–if you have not checked it out please do so here!  

Ok, back to the ORC (play catch up here: Week No. 1 + Week No. 2) We did get a lot accomplished this week.  Perhaps the most exciting part was seeing the wallpaper installed.  Wow, does it look good.  I chose the B+W Storm Print by Lindsay Cowles.  Since we are working with a rental, I did not want to do crazy with painting the walls.  I was waiting to see how the wallpaper looked to decide if we needed to paint the walls.  Luckily we don’t and the white works.  Here is a peek at the wallpaper on the bed wall below:

ORC_Wallpaper

I also decided on curtain fabric.  Last week, I explained that we are having some vintage nightstands lacquered in a blue/green.  To stay in the same color family, I chose a beautiful turquoise heavyweight cotton fabric for the curtain panels.  I love green/blue tones with black and white and by the looks of my B+W bracelets it’s all going to work nicely.   See below:

ORC_curtain-swatch

Another project we have to tackle is the vintage armoire DIY.  This piece was such a find (only $100!!!).  My assistant, Audrey,  found this and knew it would be perfect for the ORC. Since we are doing this bedroom for my parents (who will be in and out) I wanted to find a functional storage piece for clothing ect.  This piece is in excellent condition and I am obsessed with the brass hardware.  We want to add a little something to it so, we will be lining the inside walls with the extra wallpaper scraps.  Stay turned….

ORC_Dresser

Besides the piece above, I have also found a lot of other vintage treasures for the space.  I love the design lines of this brass stool.  We will reupholster it in the blue marble fabric below for a little pop of color.

ORC_Stool

I purchased this diamond shaped mirror from Chairish.  We are going to spray paint it matte black…

ORC_Diamond-Mirror

These marble + brass planters are just as pretty in person as they look on Instagram.  Great additions for the console table…

Planters

This week we will be getting the bed from CB2, nightstands will come in, lampshades will be sprayed black (anyone ever done this before?–Tips please!), DIY projects will begin.  Check back next week to see how we are doing!

One Room Challenge / Week No. 2

ORC_Week-2_The-Goods

It is week No. 2 of the One Room Challenge and we are making some great headway.  Last week, I described what my general vision was for the bedroom and this week I am going to share what actual products I am using to put this space together.  I love mixing more modern pieces with unique vintage finds so a lot of vintage furnature + accessory shopping took place this week.  I also ordered the pieces that take a few weeks to get in.  Fingers crossed everything makes it in on time!  Above is a little collage of what we have committed to thus far.  I am not 100% on the pillow selection so that may be changing once the wallpaper goes up.

The GOODS:  Ceiling Light / Lamps Plus–I have been wanting to use this Jonathan Adler ceiling light for a while–it is going to look so much better then the ceiling fan!  Artwork / Minted – We have decided to add a little pop of color to the nightstands (see below) so I wanted to bring the color back with our art selection.  Wallpaper / Lindsay Cowels  –her storm print will make the perfect accent wall.  Bedside Lamps / Vintage 1970′s from Scout Design Studio, Diamond Shaped Mirror / Vintage from Chairish, Bedding / Wayfair

Below are the vintage nightstands I purchased for the space.  We decided to have them custom lacquered in a beautiful blue/green.  They are being worked on now and will hopefully have them next week.

ORC_Vintage-Nightstands

These are the lamps we are using for the nightstands.  I am thinking about switching out the white shades for black ones so they pop more on the wallpaper.

Vintage-Lamps_ORC

This is the vintage black + gold console table I found for across the bed.  I am thinking a large piece of art hung over it will be perfect.

ORC_Vintage-Console

Next week I hope to have more finished pieces to show you and hope to have the wallpaper hung.  Make sure to check out what everyone else has accomplished this week!  You can also follow along on Instagram using #oneroomchallenge

One Room Challenge / Week One

ORC_Week-One_Cover

Hi everyone, today is the day!  The One Room Challenge officially starts right now.  I wanted to take a few minutes to introduce myself to those of you that have never read my blog, Stone Textile At Home.

My name is Elizabeth Mollen and I am a product designer + interior decorator based in Austin, Texas.  I moved here about four years ago after working for many years in the fashion industry in Los Angeles + New York.  Design has been a part of my life since I was a little girl and I have always known that I would be involved in the design world in some way.  The transition from fashion design to interior design was pretty seamless and I have not looked back.  I launched Stone Textile in 2012 and have been decorating people’s homes for the last four years.  I really love what I do.   My husband Russell and I are expecting our first child in January so being 5.5 months pregnant is also part of the challenge!  Thank you for following along on the blog as well as on Instagram (@stonetextile)

The Room:  I will be designing a client’s bedroom.

The Client:  My parents.  Since we have no family in Texas my mom + dad wanted to get a little apartment in Austin so they could be close to us and their new grandchild.  Mostly their new grandchild ;) .    They love modern and neutrals so they are giving me free rein to create something fun and different from their home in Chicago.

The Before Photos:

ORC_Week-One_Before-Photos

The Challenges:  The apartment is a rental.  It is a new build so it is not horrible but, we have to work around a lot of design details that we would not necessarily pick on our own.  To start off, the room is completely empty we have nothing!  There is also carpet in the bedroom.  I am usually not a fan of carpet anywhere in the house so this will be a challenge for me.  There may be an area rug on carpet situation happening.    I do want to use wallpaper but it will have to be removable and in rentals when you paint the walls of a room you almost always have to paint them back to the beautiful beige they have selected (jk on the beige).  There is a LARGE bulky ceiling fan that we have to either work around or replace with a more attractive flush mount light fixture.

The Design Board:  I handled my parents just as I would any client.  I presented them with a design board and we went over it together.  Here is what I am thinking for the space (items subject to change):

ORC_BedWall-Design-Board

ORC_FLOOR-PLAN

The List: What we need to source + purchase:  bed, bedding, pillows, nightstands (vintage), lamps (vintage), rug, replace ceiling fan?, wallpaper walls or a wall?, paint walls, dresser (vintage), mirror, storage, decorative objects….all in 6 weeks.  Check in next Wednesday for week two and to see what progress I have made.

Big thank you to Linda from Calling It Home for organzing this design event.  I am honored to be a part of it.  Take a look at the other designers involved and make sure to check in on them to see what they have up their sleeves. Also follow along on Instagram using #oneroomchallenge
