Have you heard of the One Room Challenge? Better yet, have you been following the design series? If not, you’ve been missing out on some incredible room transformations and amazing design inspiration.
The One Room Challenge was is a bi-annual blog series started by Linda from Calling It Home and it is now in its 10th season. What started as a design makeover blog hop has turned into one of the hottest design transformation series in bogland. The ORC has become so hot that the series recently attracted sponsors like House Beautiful, Decorator’s Best, Joss and Main, Lamps Plus, Farrow & Ball and Lowes.
Each round of the ORC features 20 bloggers/designers who makeover a space in a 6 week period. The participants select their space, develop a plan and execute the dramatic transformation while sharing the entire design/decorating process weekly on their blogs. To date there have been over 1000 room makeovers by featured and guest participants.
With each ORC I’m always excited to see that beautiful rooms created by the participants.
The latest round of the One Room Challenge just ended and I must say it includes some of my favorite spaces to date so I thought it would be fun to share a few favorites with you today. Check it out and be inspired!
Claire Brody Designs: My favorite details are the furnishings, the fireplace and the beauty of those white walls.
Design Manifest: This kitchen space went from ho-hum to incredibly chic. I love the bar stools, the lighting and the cabinet door detail.
The Makerista: The wood paneling and trim detail on the walls in this man cave is amazing. And I love the subtle color palette.
My Sweet Savannah: Now this is the way to update a dated bathroom. My favorite details are the glass front cabinets, the vanity mirror, the chandelier, the cabinet pulls, the roman shades….ok, I love it all.
Jill Sorensen: Jill had me at the black, yellow and pop of color so used for the master bedroom. I especially love the gorgeous headboard, the window treatments and the stools in front of the sofa.
Dimples and Tangles: Jennifer knocked it out of the park with the painted buffalo check wall in her powder room. And you definitely want to check out the wall moulding, the pink door and the acrylic hardware.
Always Rad: I’m so glad I discovered this blog through the ORC. This kitchen transformation is truly gorgeous and I want that banquet eating area and those lighter over the island.
Simple Details: If you love an eclectic mix like I do, you’re going to love this living room. I was really excited to see the coffee table since my mom owns that same table. p.s. take note of the amazing accessories and styling.
Amanda Louise Interiors: This is another new to me blog and after seeing this makeover I’m a big fan. I love the transformation of the TV wall and the over mix of furniture and accessories.
The Crowned Goat: I’m a big fan of office spaces that function well and look good too. This space is ideal of blogging, bills and creativity. I love the styling on the bookcases and rustic chic details throughout.
If you have time, I encourage you to check out all of the One Room Challenge spaces. There are just too many beautiful rooms to include all my favorites here.
