5 Favorites :: One Room Challenge 2017

I’ve been following the latest One Room Challenge on Instagram – have you? As you may know I participated in the past; redecorating our foyer and then renovating our master bathroom… in 6 weeks no less! The pressure is real and so I was feeling for the latest group of decor bloggers that took on the challenge. The final design reveals were published last week and are super fun and creative. It was so hard to narrow down, but I’ve selected five designs to share with you today.

black vanity // master bathroom // house updated #orc

The black vanity with brass hardware in the master bathroom designed by House Updated is fabulous. The tribal rug with pale pinks and gray works beautifully with the marble flooring and herringbone walls. Love the rounded brass mirror too.

serene boy's nursery room

This serene, yet sophisticated gender neutral nursery room by chris loves julia is another fave. It was designed for her baby girl-to-be, but I think would work for a boy too. The brass geometric mobile is a super chic touch, don’t you think?

gracie wallpaper // dressing room // house of brinson

House of Brinson‘s guest bedroom and dressing room is also spectacular. The walls are covered in an aged blue gray paint by Farrow & Ball and panels of Gracie wallpaper hang in the dressing room (shown above). Simply stunning.

chinoiserie chic // console table

The dining and sitting room design by The Pink Pagoda is another show stopper. The traditional design is layered with chinoiserie and modern touches. I’m loving this vignette in particular… and look a fern!

floral wallpaper + pink ceiling // bedroom // the english room

At first glance, this bedroom seemed it was designed for a teenage girl, but it’s actually the master bedroom for blogger Holly from The English Room. She is known for her bold, colorful and multi-layered designs. Don’t you love the lucite bed!

And be sure to check out all the fabulous One Room Challenge Spring 2017 reveals at Calling it Home. So fun!

AERIN Collection for Williams Sonoma Home

Spring has sprung and so too has a new collection by Aerin Lauder for Williams Sonoma Home. The AERIN Collection is inspired by the Lauder’s iconic oceanfront home in Palm Beach and blurs the lines between indoor and out. From lighting to dinnerware, the AERIN Collection is beautifully elegant and effortlessly stylish. It was hard to narrow down, but here are my five favorites . . .

One Room Challenge 2015 :: Decor Trends

Guess what? Last week my stair runner was installed! I’m so bummed it didn’t make the final One Room Challenge reveal, but it was totally worth the wait! I’m hoping to take a few shoots of it this week to share with you.

The install had me thinking of all the lovely designs produced for the One Room Challenge.  As I reflect back, a few decor trends were featured in a number of rooms. Here are the ones that caught my eye:

BUFFALO CHECK PLAID

Kimberly dressed the windows in her living room with a timeless and trendy buffalo check plaid. It’s a pattern that’s been a fashion favorite too!

STATEMENT WALLPAPER

statement wallpaper // dressing room // coco + kelley

Wallpaper has been trending for several years now, but it was hotter than ever in this season’s ORC. Cassandra used the most amazing statement wallpaper in her attic dressing room. Loving the chic pattern and colorway too!

LUCITE + BRASS
lucite & brass curtain rods

Lucite and brass have been trending for some time, but I love the combo. It popped up a couple times in the ORC. It’s perfect here as a curtain rod in Mackenzie’s guest bedroom too!

CHINOISERIE PATTERNS

Chinoiserie patterns were featured in several ORC rooms including my own Foyer! I swooned over the textiles and wallcoverings used throughout Paige’s kitchen.

One Room Challenge Fall 2015 :: Favorites

Whew! I’m quite relieved that the One Room Challenge (although a blast!) is behind us. The process and experience was really amazing, but exhausting. I’m so thankful to have worked with Linda from Calling it Home who created it all and with the generous event sponsors including, Bassett Mirror, BellacorDecoratorsBest, Farrow & BallLowes, Mark & Graham, Minted, and oomph. Thanks so much!

A huge thank you to you, my readers. I’ve been overwhelmed by the supportive and loving comments, emails, and thumbs up you’ve sent my way. Many thanks!!!

Oh, did you have a chance to take a look at the other 19 designers and bloggers that participated in the challenge? If so, were you blown away by the talent and gorgeous designs too? Here are a few of my favorite ORC transformations…
traditional + rustic boy's bedroom // design by a thoughtful place // via @simplifiedbee

I fell head-over-heals for Courtney’s design of her little boy’s bedroom. The traditional and rustic mix is fabulous. The reclaimed wood wall, handmade desk and pops of navy are just right. This room has lots of sentimental touches too which make the space all the more special.

Interior Designer, Naomi of Design Manifest pulled of a not so small feat for her One Room Challenge. It was really a One Condo Challenge! There are so many fabulous design details throughout, but my favorite is her small entryway which she covered in grasscloth, had a custom table made and hung a stunning mirror.

palm tree wallpaper // bathroom by the zhush // via @simplifiedbee

I’ve had my eye on the gorgeous silver palm tree pattern wallpaper for sometime, so I was thrilled to see Sue of The Zhush use it in her bathroom design. Her use of brass in the fixtures and hex mirror are spot on too. Love it!

walk-in closet design // vanessa francis design // via @simplifiedbee

Vanessa Francis of Decor Happy designed a wonderful master bedroom retreat. I am especially smitten with her walk-in closet design and how she backed the open shelving in a floral wallpaper. Stylish organization – you know I love it!

baby girl's lavender nursery // hi sugarplum! // via @simplifiedbee

Nursery designs are personal favorites of mine and so naturally I adored the sweet lavender room for Megan’s baby-girl-to-be. Working with designer Sita Montgomery, Megan created a space layered in color, texture and pattern. The room actually started out a neutral nursery, but once baby girl was announced the room took on a more feminine feel.

serene bedroom design // style your senses // via @simplifiedbee

Isn’t this bedroom design by Mallory of Style Your Senses so serene? It’s just about the same color palette I’ve used in my own bedroom! I’m loving the campaign dressers and chinoiserie mirrors flanking the cozy upholstered bed. Fabulous!

colorful living room // hi sugarplum // via @simplifiedbee

Cassie of Hi Sugarplum! transformed her living room into an inviting, colorful and sophisticated space. She collaborated with Kristin of the Hunted Interior for the overall design. I love the layers in this room the most. Checks, animal and abstract patterns work brilliantly together. And that built-in in navy high gloss is brilliant.

chic countryside living room // kimberly schlegal Whitman // via @simplifiedbee

Another fabulous living room design for the One Room Challenge was by TV host, author and lifestyle expert, Kimberly Schlegal Whitman. Her English Countryside inspired living room for her family’s ranch is quite a treat! I’m particularly loving this corner with leather green chair, brass & glass bar and buffalo check drapery.
