For the month of April, I am so happy to be participating in the One Room Challenge™ which is hosted by the very talented Linda from Calling it Home. I’ve been following the ORC for a long time, and I’m thrilled to be participating in this challenge as a Guest Participant.
I’ve chosen to complete a Girl’s Bedroom Makeover for my youngest daughter’s room (aka the smallest bedroom in the house), and I can’t wait to dive into it and get my hands dirty. I’m calling this space “Preppy, Stylish & Modern”.
This mood board represents my design plan for the room. I fell in love with a comforter from Target that had these vibrant colours in coral, mint and jewel toned green; and my daughter LOVES it too. This mood board surprisingly also meets her criteria for “a room that’s not too girly… but is a little girly… but a little tom-boyish…but with pretty things…” Are you confused by what she wants?
I’m like “Huh???”
Anyhow, she loves this mood board so I’m forging ahead. I can’t wait to see this room come together and you’re going to see it all happening week by week.
This gorgeous room was created by Four Chairs Furniture and is the inspiration for my daughter’s room makeover. I absolutely love all the white in the room, and the wallpaper accent wall.
I found this stunning mint coloured trellis wallpaper at Home Sense and knew it would be the perfect jumping off point for the room.
Here is the space that I will be transforming.
The concept of the ORC is simple and it takes place over 6 weeks. The first week (this one) is to introduce the space that will be transformed and the project plans. The design concept and mood board is presented, and then each week a new project completed for the room is showcased. The final room reveal will be on May 10th, and there will be links to other blogger’s rooms where you can check out their progress throughout the challenge as well.
Here is my plan for the ORC:
Week 1 – Introduce the space
Week 2 – Wallpaper and paint
Week 3 – Build a custom bed with upholstered headboard
Week 4 – Art display wall using frames and corkboard
Week 5 – Upholstered storage ottoman
Week 6 – Room reveal
Some of the other smaller projects I’ll be completing include:
Painting a dresser
DIY Throw pillows
Figuring out what to do about a night stand…
So, stay tuned my friends because this is going to get real…really quickly. See you soon,
