I am very excited to share that I’ve been invited to participate in the One Room Challenge! Created by Linda of Calling It Home, the ORC is a bi-annual design bonanza where 20 design bloggers document the transformation of one room (in their home, or a client’s) over a six week time period, publishing an update each Wednesday until the grande finale–a big reveal–on May 6th.
Six weeks is a tight turn around for a project, but the adrenaline junkie in me secretly loves it and my wonderful clients agreed to join me on this wild ride by entrusting me with the transformation of their master bedroom!
This week I’ll be giving you a tour of the space and sharing the parameters of the project, but over the next five weeks is when the real fun will unfold!
My clients own a beautiful condo that was built in the 1940s and over the past year we’ve decorated the main living space and loft–now it’s on to the bedroom.
So here’s where we’re starting… The wall color–a warm gray–(and pup Zoey!) will be staying, but almost everything else in the room will be updated in some way.
Like most DC residents, my clients are fighting the good fight for storage space. For practicality, the wardrobe, dresser, and bed–which contains hidden storage–will stay, but all will receive a little zhushing!
Next week we’ll discuss the floor plan and I’ll share how I plan to free up space while increasing storage and functionality.
What I’m most excited about is the opportunity this big blank wall below presents. This is where the design magic happens (who can resist a throwback MTV Cribs reference when giving a bedroom tour?!)
I’m envisioning a custom headboard in an amazing fabric, larger nightstands, and a pair of swing arm sconces to alleviate the challenge a lack of overhead lighting presents.
Zoey might appear unimpressed by my grand plans, but I promise exciting things are coming down the pipeline for this space.
I hope you’ll join me next Wednesday for the next chapter in this design journey, but until then, be sure to check out what the talented ladies below have up their sleeves!
