Featuring ORC Bloggers Part 1

I've been on an adventure.  It's called the One Room Challenge. It started 6 weeks ago and we are coming in for a landing this Wednesday. I thought since I have not been alone on this wild ride, I'd introduce you to the amazingly talented ladies who are also participating.

20 Design-Oriented Bloggers, 20 Room Makeovers Finished in just 6 weeks.

Let's visit their rooms, shall we?

Beth at Chinoiserie Chic is creating a Chinoiserie kitchen. She has the most organized kitchen, I've ever seen.

Lindsay at Sadie + Stella is designing a stunning office. She made that desk lamp herself.

Emily at Rue de Emily is redecorating her living room. She painted these logs! You've got to see the rest of her room.

Barbara at Hodge:Podge zhushing/decorating her living room. You have to see her before and after of this sideboard.


Lisa from Trapped in North Jersey is redecorating her new living room. Don't you just love these drapes? She made them! The painting above her mantel is DIY splatter paint artwork, you've got to see how she did this.

You really have to meet Linda. She is the creator of this crazy, amazing adventure called the One Room Challenge. She blogs over at My Crafty Home Life is completely remodeling her Master Bedroom, with an amazing ceiling feature you cannot miss!

Nicole from Nicole Scott Designs is making over her studio, compete with this amazing marble top desk. You should see how she transformed those bookcases with molding.

Lauren at The Cottage Mix is turning her husbands office into a formal living room.  She is all about the details, like the nail head trim on her sofa. Her gallery wall is art gallery worthy.

Lindsay at The Pursuit of Style is using this stunning chandelier in her stairwell make over. You know how I LOVE chandeliers! I can't wait to see her finished gallery wall.

Tiffany at Living Savvy is redecorating her Mom's guest bedroom. She painted that adorable dresser in the background.

These are some of the beach inspired accessories I am adding to my Master Bath Retreat.

I plan to feature the remaining 8 designers tomorrow. In the meantime please visit them:

Jessie - Mix & Chic

The One Room Challenge has brought these 20 designers/DIYers together to FINISH a room in their home (or client's home). The adventure has been amazing. The big reveal happens on Wednesday. I hope you'll come back and see it!


  1. Thanks, Danylle. Can't wait to see what you have done on Wednesday. I will be sad when it is over!

    1. I can't wait to see how it all turns out on Wed! I will be sad when it's over too but I have at least 3 more rooms to go so we have to do this again!

  2. Thanks for the review. It was helpful to see them all together, and tomorrow the rest. Then on Wednesday, we go wild! I have blocked the entire DAY.

    1. Your welcome, Patty! I needed to refresh myself on what everyone else is up to. Cannot wait for the finale!

  3. Thanks for the feature! You are too sweet. I can't believe it is almost over, it was so nice to part of this group! I am NOT completely finished, and won't be, but you'll have to see on Wednesday what I managed to get done!

    1. I'm not finished either. Still have changing my mind about some things. It has been a ton of fun, hasn't it?

  4. Thanks so much for the mention. Can't wait to see all the reveals tomorrow.


Thank you for stopping by and leaving your comment here, it really means the world to me!
