Hi everyone! I am so excited to announce that I am going to be participating in Linda at Calling It Home’s famous One Room Challenge (“ORC”) as a Guest Participant.
If you are not familiar with ORC, it is where 20 designers are challenged to transform a room and document their process every week. Anyone can take the challenge and link up their progress every week. This year is even better as they are partnering with House Beautiful as a media partner. It doesn’t get any better than that!
If you are new here, you might not know that I have been talking about decorating my daughter’s big girl room for ages now. I am using the ORC to light a fire under me to actually get something done. I have followed along for years and always wanted to participate, so this is the year!
Here is the before photo (giant Elsa doll and all!) I thought I would keep it real and the worse the before photo the better the after, right? Obviously, storage is going to be a major component of this space.
Here room gets terrible light and our home is very old so there is no overhead lighting, so new lighting fixtures are in order. The only thing that is really staying is the bed!
Here is what I am dreaming up for this space. The color scheme is going to be grey and pale pink.
I plan to go with classic bedding, pale pink silk drapes and DIY faux fur stools. There is so much to be done, but having to show my progress each week will keep me accountable! Here is my project timeline:
Week 1: Paint
Week 2: Lighting
Week 3: DIY Stools and framed wallpaper.
Week 4: Drapes
Week 5: Accessories and bedding.
I hope you follow along with me as I document my progress. I will update you each Thursday, so mark you calendars! I also hope you follow the amazing designers who are the official challengers. Head on over to Calling it Home to follow along.
Until next week!
