Dressing up the windows

Posted on June 13, 2017

The One Room Challenge reveal was just over a month ago but it seems like ages ago! With the makeover of my daughter’s room came lots of new items that I shared sources with in this post. Putting brand new items in a young girl’s bedroom is a risky endeavor indeed. My daughter is not the cleanest of children and in the end she is still a child so the care of new furniture, bedding, and window treatments isn’t the best that it could be. But after a month of living in the room I’m super happy that we had the opportunity to work with great companies who produce great products. One of those companies that I worked with for the first time on the challenge was The Shade Store. And I’m now a big fan of using this company for window treatments and recommend it as a source for my …

Playing it cool in the bedroom

Posted on June 6, 2017

If you know me, or if you ever meet me, one of the things that you’ll quickly find out is that I love to sleep. If I could, I would sleep at least 10 hours a night. But with kids and actual stuff to do during the day I settle for 8 hours. And those 8 hours need to be as blissful as can be. One thing that can ruin a blissful night’s rest for me is a hot room. Nothing is worse than laying in bed without any covers because the bedroom is too warm. Our bedroom is the hottest room in our house so during the summer it is tough to get the room cooled down without freezing out the other bedrooms upstairs. So with that being said, a ceiling fan is our best friend during the summer months. Here’s my take on ceiling fans when considering design …

One Room Challenge Tween Queen Bedroom and Bath {The Sources}

Posted on May 16, 2017

Thank you for all the kind comments y’all left on the reveal of my One Room Challenge Tween Queen Bedroom and Bath. It was so nice to hear from each and every one of you! My daughter is loving her new space and I’m starting to get myself out from all the boxes and things that have been piling up around here. I haven’t gotten enough time to go through all of the 20 designers and over 200 guest participants who took part in this round of the One Room Challenge. But I am going to get to it asap and put together a list of my favorites. I’ve seen quite a few pictures of rooms on Instagram and there are some real beauties out there!! I promised last week in my reveal that I would be back with a separate post on all the sources of items that I used in …

One Room Challenge Tween Queen Bedroom & Bath {THE REVEAL!!}

Posted on May 10, 2017

  Deep breath, deep breath…here we go! Six weeks ago 20 designers and over 200 guest participants took the plunge into the Spring 2017 One Room Challenge. The challenge being- redesign a room in 6 weeks. No problem you say? Well, it’s never without drama and setbacks but I think in the end each person who joins the challenge is thrilled to cross off one room in their house as being done. And all of these beautiful rooms wouldn’t be possible without the organization and support of Linda at Calling It Home. Seriously Linda- where would we all be if you hadn’t started this little challenge of yours??? With a lot of half-finished rooms is where we would be. Ok, here’s the quick background on the rooms I did this round. My daughter turns 9 and decides that she hates pink and wants it out of her bedroom. At the …

One Room Challenge Tween Queen Bedroom and Bath {Week 5}

Posted on May 3, 2017

Week 5 of the One Room Challenge is here (insert all the comments about how is it Week 5 already?!?!). So it’s crunch time to get all the last items finished in the participating rooms. And when you start crunching the numbers- there isn’t even a full week left to finish. Because most people will have their rooms photographed by a photographer, which means that you need the room done a few days ahead of the reveal. My room is set to be photographed on Monday. Just a few hours after my shower door and roman shades get installed! Keep all of your fingers crossed that nothing goes wrong with either installation and this room reveal goes off without any hiccups. And just so we are all ready for the reveal next week, let’s take a quick look back on where we started 5 weeks ago. Weeks 1, 2, 3, and …
