I’m excited to announce that I’m going to be participating in the One Room Challenge™ for Fall 2018.
The One Room Challenge™ is a design event held twice a year in the spring and fall. Interior design enthusiasts can participate by linking up and sharing their chosen rooms while documenting their progress as they transform the room over the next six weeks. At the end of the six weeks, they reveal the finished room.
After building a new home last year and spending the year furnishing and finishing up most of the rooms, I’ve been so busy that little attention has been paid to the less visible spaces in our new home such as the loft playroom. What better way to get it finished than to challenge myself to tackle it in the next six weeks?
As you can see, this playroom is pretty uninspiring. While building, I had the foresight to have custom shelving and window seats installed. I’m excited to finish the vision I’ve had for them. Not only do they need to look good, but it would also be nice to have them functional for toy and book storage.
There is a large area to the side of the couch and a long hallway that gives me a lot more space to work with. I’d like to add a round table for games and art projects and refinish the little vintage desk that is obviously well used and loved.
After furnishing our new home with all new furnishings and decor, the budget for this playroom is going to be pretty tight. I’ll be keeping the couch, coffee table, and TV. All are functional and pretty easy to work around. This, in my opinion, will make the design challenge all the more challenging.
I can’t wait to share my design process with you all over the next six weeks. Be sure to check back every Thursday for the latest updates. You can also follow along with other amazing designers as they transform their rooms. Just click on the link below.
