Colder weather is at our doorstep and that means one thing… it’s time to bundle up. Cozy plaid throws are a timeless favorite. The classic pattern is a great one for the winter months. I also love that throws are super easy to use either inside or out.

One Room Challenge Spring 2016 :: Favorites

The last few weeks have been a bit of a blur. My kids are wrapping up their school year, we have started demoing the kitchen/great room and I’ve starting taking training classes for our puppy (see image below). I’m also quite relieved that the One Room Challenge Spring 2016 edition is complete. The experience was so much fun, yet 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, allmodernbassett mirrorbellacorcaroline cecil textilescrystoramadecoratorsbestfarrow & balljoss & mainloweslucent light shopluxholdupsminted.comwaiting on martha, and  waterworks.

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

Did you have an opportunity to check out the other 19 bloggers that participated in the challenge? Again, I was blown away by the talent and gorgeous designs. Here are a few of my favorite ORC transformations…

laundry room // the zhush

Who wouldn’t enjoy doing laundry in this space designed by Sue De Chiara of the The Zhush? My favorite design detail is the fabulous Nuvolette wallpaper by Cole and Sons. Perfection.

Claire Brody transformed her living room using layers of neutrals. Isn’t it inviting? Love.

Modern, organized and chic – the new office space for the Waiting On Martha team is a fave.

The guest suite by pencil and paper blog is one I’d love in my own home. I adore the blush pink walls and chinoiserie touches.

How sweet is this pink bedroom the Nicole from Sketch 42 designed for her sister? Loving the skirted table in Miles Redd fabric.

colorful den // the pink clutch // one room challenge

Paige Minear of The Pink Clutch transformed her already beautiful den into a colorful oasis. There is so much eye candy in this space from the wallpapered bookcases to the gorgeous upholstery. Love all of the layers.

Here are all the links to the other amazing transformations…

San Francisco Decorator Showcase :: The Garden Room

Happy Friday! It’s been quite the hectic week with the One Room Challenge Reveal. I’m so relieved that’s it is complete (sigh) and touched by all the positive feedback. Thank you so much!

San Francisco Decorator Showcase // The Garden Room // Heather Hilliard

To wind down the week on a relaxing note, I’d like to share another fabulous room from this year’s San Francisco Decorator Showcase. The Garden Room by interior designers Heather Hilliard and Fleur Keyes of Heather Hilliard Design is an airy and informal space perfect for entertaining. With a casual, chic California vibe, the room’s organic design blurs the boundary between indoor and outdoor living. Love this! The walls are covered in a whitewash lime wall finish set a perfect neutral backdrop. A gorgeous open flame wood-burning fireplace is flanked by antique mirrors and logs ready for cozy fire. I’m also loving the long natural-edge wood Chris Lehrecke dining table and John Himmel handwoven rope armchairs – elegant, yet casual. Bravo ladies!

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.

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!

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.

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.
