Today is an exciting day!! We installed the Gentry Project main bedroom for the One Room Challenge this week and I couldn’t be happier with how this space turned out! It’s all of my favorite things a room can be – colorful with neutral foundations, textural, layered and eclectic.

Here’s a look at how the room started when we got our hands on this old, dated house a few months ago. We’re wrapping up the entire house this month with our partners at the Treehouse Group Contracting. They’ve been awesome to work with and everything is looking so great! Get ready for LOTS more pretty spaces from this fun project. :)


We pulled out the carpet in here, installed new squared off windows, pulled down yellowed wallpaper and painted the faux beams a soft gray color. Since the ceilings are only about 8.5 ft tall, softening the color of the beams really helped the ceiling to feel higher.



If you remember from this post, we planned on hanging a soft leaf pattern wallpaper in here, but decided against it in the end. Wallpaper is SO pretty, but I know it’s not a look for everyone. We decided to stick with just white walls in here and let the curtains and the rug be the pattern stars of the room.

Speaking of the rug, Dash and Albert’s Kota rug was really our starting point for the design. The color variation and the pattern here are complete perfection. It really is a gorgeous rug, just like everything from Dash & Albert!

And I LOVE how the DIY grid pattern curtains turned out!  Check out this post for the full tutorial. I used navy and black fabric paint in a brush pen to freehand a grid pattern. It only took a few hours to do all six panels and I’m so happy with how these look hung on our pretty black iron curtain hardware! (Pro tip: skip the clip option in favor of curtain rings and use drapery hooks for a more custom look!)

Those Yucca plants are faux and they are seriously convincing. They are a great price for a really good faux plant (we bought two of them for more fullness).

Can you even handle this caramel leather bench?! It’s from Article and it is absolute perfection, right down to the tufting and the brass x-base!

This gorgeous chair is also from Article. It is the prettiest shade of warm blue gray and I love the wooden frame! Like all of the Article pieces I’ve ever used over the years, these two pieces are completely gorgeous and really well-made.

This cute white side table and those GORGEOUS nightstands are some of my favorites. I love, love, love the nightstands! They’re the perfect size and the slightly cerused finish is so pretty in person!

The striped blanket at the foot of the bed is so fun, and I’m obsessed with the oversized tassels!

Guys, this gorgeous oatmeal linen platform bed is so beautiful! I could not have been more impressed with it when it arrived, especially considering the crazy-affordable price!

The pink tassel pillow was a test run for some ideas I’m throwing around for a Juniper Studio pillow line. Tell me, guys. would you buy a pillow this size? I love the blush color and those cute little tassels! I’m having a lot of fun with this new pillow line and I can’t wait to show you guys what we’ve been up to. :)

The beautiful hemstitch white cotton sheets, the rust pillow shams and the SHOCKINGLY SOFT ivory coverlet are all from Pine Cone Hill, a favorite source of mine for gorgeous bedding.

The art in the room is all from Juniper Print Shop. The tree print is called COTTONWOOD and the city scene here below is called MERCER. They’ll be in the shop very soon along with ten other new prints that you’re going to love! :)

The HUGE brass mirror is so pretty. The glass is slightly antiqued and I love how it adds a little bit of moodiness to this light, bright space!

I think it’s perfect hanging over the DIY dresser we made with the extra long drawer pulls. Isn’t this color so pretty in here? Especially with that gorgeous navy lamp!

  1. Love every inch of this room!! Will you share where you found that little tabletop blond wood easel on the dresser? Scoured your for the source but I couldn’t find it. Thank you!

  2. The “sign up for email newsletter” link at top of blog is not working. Please sign me up for email newsletter

  3. Hi Jenny! I love the Mercer print above the bed here that I have gone ahead and ordered one for myself! May I ask what size you had it printed? I have a queen bed I’m going to hang it over and am struggling with the proportions.

    Thanks a million!

      1. hi jenny! love this room and the mercer print. what size would you suggest over a king size bed?

  4. You are the most interesting designer on the internet. It amazes me that a decor this soft and light can also be so quirky and unique. Nothing seems contrived. It is beautiful!

  5. I LOVE the long pillow!!! I’ve been wanting 3 long pillows for over a year. So YES definitely I would buy pillows this size.

  6. Wondering if it is possible to have a box spring with this bed? Or would you just recommend a mattress by itself?
    Thank you!

  7. Hi — I love this room, and just ordered the brass lamp from Target! I wanted to order the bed and you describe it as oatmeal (it also looks like that color on the website) but people say it looks light gray in person, and that is how it is described on the site. Can you say — does it look oatmeal or light gray to you in person? Thanks!

  8. The room is amazing! I just bought a similar bed and was wondering if you used a queen sized duvet or a king size. I have always had a headboard, box frame, metal bed frame, with bed skirt as my bed and I have always bought a king sized duvet just so it would cover more. I am planning on tucking the bedding bed like you did here and wonder what size bedding you used. Should I size down and get a queen duvet? Random, I know but thank you in advance.

  9. Love this room! In an Instagram story you shared how you hung the drapes and the pins you used. Would you mind sharing that again. I like this simple no-pleat look. Thank you!

  10. I am looking for the nightstands. The mine site takes me to Can you tell me the name of the nightstand so I can find it elsewhere?

  11. Hi Jenny!

    Please can you let me know where those turmeric yellow pillows are from? And also maybe the big brass picture frame.

    Thank you.
