It’s that time of year again! I’m pumped to be participating in another round of One Room Challenge. For those of you not familiar with ORC, 20 talented design bloggers take a room and completely transform it in 6 weeks. We will be posting progress every Wednesday morning with the big final reveal on November 6th. I tackled my own master bedroom last time, but this time I’m upping the ante and sharing a client project. I feel very lucky to have an amazing/generous/brave client who trusts me and is letting me break it all down for you guys as it happens. Fingers crossed we get it done in time and that he loves it.
This design is a fun departure from our previous girly projects; its a Gentleman’s Bachelor Pad. Think Modern, Sophisticated, Organic, Glamorous, Eclectic all mixed into a family-friendly home. We were called in to transform the living and dining rooms into stylish, comfortable and practical spaces. Yes, if all goes well we will be sharing TWO rooms. Even though the last challenge nearly broke me, I’m a glutton for decorating. Adding to the challenge- this space is a RENTAL- so no major face-lifts here. We will have to work magic with paint, furnishings and styling.
THE SPACE: Here is a tour of the space we are going to makeover. Plus a few of my thoughts when I saw it for the first time…
The living room “focal wall.”
Oh the paneling, Oh the fireplace, Oh the blue! Why the blue?!
Remember, we can’t change it, but we can paint it.
