One Room Challenge: Week 4 Flamingo Wallpaper!!!

It’s that time again friends (how do the weeks go by so quickly during the ORC?) and today I actually do have a little bit of fun progress!

Yep, you guessed it! It’s FLAMINGO WALLPAPER DAY!!! I am absolutely, 100% in love with this wallpaper from Wallpaper Direct. The colors are so pretty, there is lots of texture it’s the perfect touch of whimsy.

I know at least a third of you are going to think I’m certifiably bonkers but I swear it looks SO good! Even my little man was giddy with excitement when he saw it! We both said this is now our favorite ‘room’ in the house :)

Believe it or not I opted to have the wallpaper installed by a professional. I was prepared to do it all myself then I realized that time is more valuable than the amount of money I spent on it and my sanity is still intact! More on that decision later…


I was worried about putting bold wallpaper in such a small space but it actually makes it feel bigger!

And, it seems a little underwhelming now but the light was was also installed this week and I’m very happy with the choice.


The walls will definitely be toned down once I get the washer and dryer and cabinet in here. Bottom line is, it makes me and my son so happy when we see it and that is the most important thing!



I’m behind with the barn door hardware installation (and the building of the doors) but I did get the track support board up.


The punch list is still pretty long, particularly the barn door project, but I’m crossing my fingers and holding my breath we can make it happen!

Project Punch List:

laundry room demo & prep

replace washer & dryer

shop for accessories (finished by today)

install light fixture

install wallpaper

install barn door hardware (in process) & build barn doors (next two weeks)

put together & hang cabinet (end of next week)

accessorize (2 weeks out)

If you missed the first to weeks you can find them here: Week 1 // Week 2 // Week 3

  1. I LOVE the wallpaper, i love pink so this is super gorgeous and fancy. It’s all looking amazing and coming together nicely. I can’t wait to see those barn doors.

  2. I love it! What a great vision, because, honestly if I saw a sample of flamingo wallpaper I would think, where on earth would that look good? But it looks fantastic! Great job! Can’t wait to see it finished!

  3. Umm, I want to live in your laundry closet now, LOL! Creepy – I know… Seriously though, fellow ORC-er here stopping by from the linkup, and as soon as I saw that wallpaper, I thought, “I MUST SEE THIS SPACE” It looks incredible, Summer!!! If you do absolutely nothing else for the next two weeks, it’ll still be an amazing transformation!

    We’re transforming our living room for the ORC – well, we’ve spent the past 15 months renovating an abandoned 1930 bungalow, but for sanity’s sake I figured that if I can just finish one room then I’ll consider it quite an accomplishment, ha!

    I’ve been considering a bold wallpapered feature wall for our dining room, and thanks to your post it’s no longer under question; I’m going to do it!

    XO, Oksana

  4. That is my dream wallpaper. Really. And I used a capiz chandelier/light fixture in my previous ORC and my daughter and I still love to look at the light and shadows it casts. They are so fun!!
