One Room Challenge Tween Queen Bedroom and Bath {Week 3}

Posted on

For all of you rolling out of bed right now, let me tell you it’s Wednesday. Which means it’s time to check in on the One Room Challenge! And this week is Week 3, which I’ll do the math for you is the half-way point of the 6 week challenge!!! And whew, those three weeks have flown by!!! But there has been so much progress in my daughter’s bedroom and bathroom that unless a total catastrophe happens I should be able to complete the room ahead of schedule. So if anyone is doing the One Room Challenge and needs help (and lives in a warm, tropical location) you can fly me in and I’ll come paint walls or sew pillows for you. But that’s about where my handy skills end. Ok, let’s talk about some of the fabulous items that have arrived on my doorstep the past couple of weeks. …

One Room Challenge Tween Queen Bedroom & Bath {Week 1}

Posted on

Happy Day, Happy Day- the One Room Challenge is underway!!! A huge thank you to Linda from Calling It Home for not only organizing this massive project but for also thinking enough of the Suburban Bees to invite us back for another round! Tricia hit a home run last Fall with her living room makeover and I hope I can follow her lead and make an amazing room revamp in these next 6 weeks. So let’s get down to what room is receiving this makeover. There were a few candidates that I considered, including our master bathroom, an upstairs bonus room, or my daughter’s bedroom. Each room had pro’s and con’s, and in the end I wanted to get my daughter involved in this project by making her room over and getting her input on some of the major design decisions. My daughter just turned 9, but she’s fairly mature …

Give me 6 weeks, and let’s see what happens!

Posted on

I’m so excited to be back on the blog today sharing some great news! We’ve been taking a little hiatus from the blog and I’ve missed all of you. But I’m back here today to let you know that we are taking part in the One Room Challenge again this round as an invited designer! Quick recap- the One Room Challenge hosted by Linda at Calling It Home gives us 6 weeks to make over a room and we’ll blog about our progress and challenges each of those 6 weeks. It’s such an amazing event that brings an abundance of design inspiration and camaraderie among the home blogging world. And I can’t wait to take on the challenge again- but you’ll have to wait until next week to find out what room I’m taking on for the One Room Challenge! Tricia and I feel almost like senior students in the college of …

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 & …

One Room Challenge Fall 2016 {week two}

Posted on

Welcome everyone and thanks for stopping by! If you’re new here I’m Tricia – one half of the duo behind Suburban B’s. Erin and I blog about all things suburban and how we’re transforming our builder spec homes into spaces we love. This is week two of the One Room Challenge hosted by Linda of Calling It Home. Twenty designers have just six weeks to completely transform a room. Reveal Day is four short weeks away and there is a lot to get done before then! Week Two did not conforming to my grand plan. And just to remind you – here’s the grand plan: Not only am I revamping the family room but I’m also taking on the kitchen & the breakfast nook to keep things really exciting! If you missed Week One where I laid out my plan for the spaces you can check it all out here. This is how this week went: …
