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…

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!

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!

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.

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.

Nursery Room Ideas :: The Animal Print Shop

What spawns the design for a nursery room? Often times it can be a fabric, paint color or even crib design. However, in some cases its the artwork. This is certainly the case for many of the nursery rooms that feature the beautiful photography of animals by Sharon Montrose. From forest to farm, Montrose has captured the most amazing images images of animals (many babies themselves) perfect for an infant’s new space and sells them directly at The Animal Print Shop. Here are a few of my favorite nursery room ideas found on their blog.

This adorable gender neutral, modern nursery was featured on The Handmade Home via Pinterest. The white walls, clean-lined crib (very affordable!) and whimsical wallpapered ceiling give the room it’s modern feel. Traditional element, such as the tufted glider chair (from Target!), woven rug and changing table balance the look. I love it, don’t you?

Cherry Walls Giveaway & Discount

Wall decals are a quick and easy way to add color, pattern and personality to your home. Because they are temporary, wall decals are terrific for renters or spaces that may evolve over the time such as a baby’s nursery, child’s room or playroom.  But keep in mind, not all wall decals are created equally.

I’d like to introduce you to Cherry Walls. They are a new Simplified Bee sponsor and create made-to-order wall decals in the USA using top quality materials. That’s right they keep nothing in stock – each decal is made for every customer individually, allowing everyone to customize their design and get exactly what they need! And in a few years when your child has outgrown the look, you can take the decal down – it removes easily, leaves a clean surface and will not damage your walls.

I also love that Cherry Walls works with professional artists to create such beautiful designs. Here are some of my faves:
