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?

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!

Fiddle figs, succulents and palms have been very popular houseplants in the last few years. Recently I’ve also noticed a trend for indoor fern plants – once a huge favorite for the home in the 1970s. Producing beautiful lush green foliage, ferns help purify the air and act as natural humidifiers – loving that here in the dry, high Sierras!

With over 10,000 known species of fern in the world, selecting one could get a little overwhelming. To make the choice easier, I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites indoor fern plants – I think you’ll love them too!indoor fern plants // favorites from @simplifiedbee

Color Crush :: Pale Pink

pale pink nursery // caitlin creer

Known to represent kindness and remind us of those sweet flamingos, the color pink comes in many shades. Although I love them all, lately  I’ve most drawn to the hue’s pale, pink side that is often featured in a baby girl’s nursery like the one by Caitlin Creer above. The fresh and cool shade of pink is also popping up in other areas of the home as a primary or accent color. Pale pink takes on a modern, sophistication when paired with a darker hues like black, navy and green.

My Favorite Posts 2015

2015. It’s almost history and boy was it a year of change (at least for me). The biggest of course was my family moving from the bustle of the San Francisco Peninsula to the slower paced Sierra Nevada high dessert. I’ll be honest, it took me a few months to adjust (missing our California friends the most), but I love our new lifestyle. I’m also enjoying renovating our 1940s home (no small task – so lets see how I feel about it next year!). I’ve already tackled the foyer, thanks to a nudge from the One Room Challenge and will be sure to share other projects we are undertaking in the upcoming months.

Wishing you a very happy, healthy 2016!

Here’s a look at some of my favorite posts of 2015:
