One Room Challenge Spring 2020 - Week 4 - Custom Home Office -

Updated: Mar 4, 2021



Wouah! It is already the end of week 4!

I can't believe it! I love the One Room Challenge! It is such an amazing way to show you the process of a make over of a room in a short time. So, thanks to all the ORC team who organize this event twice a year and the official sponsor Better Homes & Gardens. It is my second participation as a guest participant and I really enjoy this moment of the year. I hope you enjoy it too, can't wait to be at week 8 for the big reveal!


If you miss the first 3 weeks of my challenge, you can start here with week 1, week 2, and week 3. This week was a little low-key regarding the project. Last week, we decided the layout of the room and now François Langin has started the construction of the custom cabinets, bookshelves, desks and Murphy bed.


So, here is a reminder of how the room looked like 3 weeks ago:

Now, the home office is empty and the contractor started the painting job. I selected 3 different light beige tones from Benjamin Moore. I like to order peel & stick paint samples from samplize.com. They send you large stickers (12x12) of real paint. It is easy to apply and remove. Like that, no painting, no clean up! Fantastic, isn't it?!

I finally chose Seapearl 961, a light greyish beige. The peach color was outdated. This room really needed a fresh coat. And here is the result (color can change everything!):
