One Room Challenge Favorites {Fall 2016}

Posted on

Was the One Room Challenge reveal really already two weeks ago? The whole month so far has been a whirlwind between trying to madly finish up our space, the election and a quick trip a couple days later to Atlanta to celebrate my baby brother’s big birthday. And of course there’s also the clean up from the One Room Challenge that I had to contend with too. I’m not gonna lie – while part of the house looked amazing for the reveal the rest of the house was not looking good. This is what greeted you when you walked in the front door for several weeks. Not impressed yet? How about this? I’m slowly finding homes for everything and at the same time clearing all this out has inspired me to clear EVERYTHING out of everywhere so there’s hardly a spot in the house that doesn’t look like the aftermath of …

The One Room Challenge Fall 2016 {sources & details}

Posted on

  Let me start by saying a huge thank you to Linda of Calling It Home, House Beautiful and all the amazing sponsors that made the One Room Challenge possible. Big thanks to all of you for the likes, the love, the comments, posts and emails on my space. Thank you for all generous enthusiasm – it meant the world to me! I always hold my breath wondering if a room is going to come together and if others are going to see it in the same way I do. And WHEW I think you do!  I’m still in shock that Linda tapped Erin and I to join nineteen of our favorite design bloggers for this round of the Challenge and that now I actually get to call these rooms home! What a wild ride! So now let’s get down to get to the nitty gritty and give you what you want to know – the sources & …

It’s here – the biggest day of the fall – the One Room Challenge Reveal Day! Who needs Christmas when we have this? I am so excited to show you all the hard work we put into this space.

One Room Challenge Fall 2016 {week four}

Posted on

And just like that we’re on to Week Four of the One Room Challenge. Thanks once again to Linda from Calling It Home for inviting Erin and I along for this crazy ride! Even a month into it we’re still beyond thrilled to be included with the other nineteen immensely talented designers. With Week Four I’m feeling like I turned a corner and things are visibly starting to come together. If you missed out on the action over the last few weeks you can catch up here: WEEK ONE WEEK TWO WEEK THREE  One of the best changes this week is that the mantel wall no longer looks like a bundle of 2 x 4’s! I’ve got actual drywall up! My friendly neighborhood drywaller took care of that. Bob the drywaller literally lives down the street and sees it as his duty to keep the walls in our neighborhood looking good – …

One Room Challenge Fall 2016 {week one}

Posted on

We’re off and running with the One Room Challenge! It’s with a mixture of sheer unadulterated terror and absolutely unbridled joy that Erin and I are joining in the fun as invited bloggers this round. Thank you so much to Linda of Calling It Home for including us in this group of immensely talented bloggers! We are beyond honored. If you’re new to the One Room Challenge here’s the lowdown: 20 design bloggers have six weeks to completely transform a space. You’d think Erin & I would be old hands at this as the ORC has inspired us to revamped seven rooms so far. But being actual invited designers this round gives the Challenge a whole new intensity. Speaking for myself – I’m nervous, excited, over the moon, beyond thrilled and ready to have a heart attack at any given moment. Pinch me. And then maybe pinch me again because I still think I must …
