Favorites Of The Week (all from the One Room Challenge)


Hi friends.  Sorry it’s been a bit quite here on the blog this week.  I made several attempts to sit down and finish this weeks blog posts but things just kept getting in the way.  I’m going to be back on schedule next week with an eclectic (don’t you just love that word) mix of posts.  I’ll be sharing some holiday gift wrap inspiration and wrapping tips, my first holiday gift guide and a DIY project that has been on my to-do list to ages!

I’m closing out the week my usual ‘favorites’ post but this time it’s all about the One Room Challenge which is now in its 10th season.  Have your had a chance to check out all the spaces that were transformed over the last 6 weeks?  I haven’t made it through all the participating bloggers posts but what I’ve seen so far is WOW!  Holy Moly, there are some truly amazing design ideas, before and after transformations and a whole lot of inspiration.  Check out a few of my favorite spaces (so far)…



First up is Burlap and Lace.  Shannon did an amazing job adding style and detail to a long narrow room with lots of bookcases.

The before…


And the after…


a coat of black paint made those simple bookcase look like high-end custom-built shelves


the faux fireplace adds another focal point within the room


impeccable styling

You can see the full Burlap and Lace reveal here.


Next is Kris from Driven By Decor.  Kris was also working with a room that had lots of bookcases but instead of going dark and dramatic, she created soft and soothing space.

The before…


And the after…


one of the prettiest gallery walls I seen in a while


pillow mixing at its best–bold pattern + texture + small print


this color palette is a breath of fresh air

The next space I absolutely love was designed and transformed by Kristin from The Hunted Interior.  She was also working with a long narrow space and added a wall of bookcases to create drama at the far end of the room.

The before…




And the after…


i love the bohemian vibe the comes from the pattern and texture mix



Notice that mix of materials?  That’s a design detail all rooms need.

I love every space that Nancy of Marcus Design creates and the bathroom transformation she completed is just stunning.

The before…



And the after…


Blue + white + gold=perfection.


drawer lines are such a simple detail that adds so much style


Classic details that will stand the test of time.
