The One Room Challenge™ is a celebration of creativity, inspiration, and original ideas. ORC is a biannual event where twenty designers and guest participants (me!) transform one space in their home over 8 weeks. Here is how it went down:
A Pop of Color
I can’t help that I’m driven to dark moody colors – you’ll notice this if you pay attention to what I wear. It’s no surprise I went with dark and bold paint colors but really it’s because I wanted a nice backdrop to my vibran plants. To break up the moodiness I included a soft pink paint color on the exit door. Doors are the perfect way to try out fun colors! If you hate the look, it (typically) only takes one paint sample can to repaint it.
I used Behr’s Admiral Paint on the walls and contrasted the trim with Tricorn Black paint to get a two-tone look.
The Show Stopping Egg Chair
This boho egg chair is my favorite place to rest, browse TikTok, or enjoy a cold margarita!
This chair design comes in different (cushion) colors but I choose white so I could easily swap accent pillows and blankets with the seasons.
A Cozy Banquette
We DIYed a corner banquette where our oldest pup, Dean, could sunbathe. I added comfy throw pillows from the Target Hearth and Home collection for back support.
The seating layout was perfect for Will and me to enjoy Sunday morning coffee and chat about the week and the projects we would tackle next.
Over the banquette is a plant propagation station I DIYed out of scrap wood. Using these little glass tubes, I can propagate plants to gift our friends or gift myself if I’m being honest.
COVID-19 shutdowns rolled out shortly after this challenge started so sourcing supplies took longer than expected. Luckily Home Depot was my main source of materials and did a great job managing online/curbside orders.
