The One Room Challenge got the best of me this time!
I went completely down to the wire with wallpaper and draperies being installed the morning of the photo shoot. There were actually three photo shoots to get ready for this week so there was no time to rest. I’m writing this blog post lying flat on my back on my bed with my back out and sick.
However I’m bedridden in my newly decorated bedroom so I’m happy!
If you are new to my blog welcome- I’m Jill Sorensen a Swedish interior designer with my own label living in LA. (INSTAGRAM@JILLSORENSEN.COM). We bought this house a year ago and gut renovated it. If you read my blog you’ll see a complete makeover is taking place. To remind you where this room started…
The room now looks like this…
All photos by Anna Maria Noellert (unless noted)
A midcentury, Palm Springs , Frank Sinatra, Empire tv show, colorful, black and white hotel room suite…
I don’t know what you would call the style.
The only room in the house that has black doors. Inside the bedroom there are black door and window casings.
The bed has my new favorite bedding TAKES TWO in Black & Sand
Yellow Pillows from World Market……and fab bedside lamps from Jana Bek.
The walls are covered in my art deco inspired wallpaper ARCHES in Beige for Jill Sorensen Lifestyle.
Under the window I have a custom upholstered midcentury sofa from Clad Home in yellow velvet and black piping and black sideas and back. The drapery has Shibori Striped Drapery fabric from Minted. I added a two inch black band to go with the black framed look in the room. I love these cheerful draperies. In my mind you can never have enough yellow.
Thank You so much Minnie Creations for making them i a rush. The cool Corrugation stools from All Modern are used as extra tables and blue fur pillows, and Ella Embroidered Pillow from Joss & Main are on the couch.
My soft Greek Key shag carpet that I’m completely obsessed with makes it impossible not to want to be barefoot in here.

On the other side sliding glass doors look out over the little terrace that we built outside the master bedroom by the swimming pool.
I upholstered and existing chair in Yellow Stout fabric from DecoratorsBest with black piping and back.
The glam Greek Key mirror is the Anderval mirror from Bassett Mirror company. The Greek Key art deco vibe was irresistable considering the greek key theme in the room.
The super mod and midcentury tripod lamp that sits in the corner is the Restoration floor lamp by Adesso from Bellacor. They have tons of great lighting but I felt this gave the room a true midcentury vibe.
The Greek Key Shag gives the room the super cozy vibe, I’m constantly in my with Ugg boots but in here you just have to be barefoot! It’s so soft.

And now the bonus room….
My MASTER BATHROOM.
Super excited to be the very first to test our Greek Key wallpaper in Noir.
It’s definitely NOT boring!
Retro Jonathan Adler Meurice sconces.
Kohler vibrant gold shower heads. and faucet.
I like how the wallpaper frames the serene marble shower and works with the faux painted drywall beams.
Paw print is from the Humane Society of NY auction to help rescue animals.
Vintage rug from Kaya kilim.
So although I’m very happy with the new bedroom…
..the best of all is the little terrace we added right outside!
Double lounge from Modshop. Martha Stewart Cushion covers from DecoratorsBest, Monogram Yellow pillow, Monogram Asphalt pillow Jill Sorensen Lifestyle. throw from West Elm.
A big thank you to Linda of Calling it Home for inviting me, the fab sponsors, Minnie Creations and my assistant Emily for working hard to help me pull this off!
