One Room Challenge — Office Makeover with Vintage Finds

Time!!! The One Room Challenge final reveal deadline has arrived! Hands up! Well kinda. It’s the night before this post goes live, and I’m typing as fast as my little fingers can hit keys. I take that back, it’s after midnight. But for all intents and purposes, this room is dunzo! Like many of the other participants, I got the flu, and I’m tired and exhausted. Anyone who tells you this challenge is a breeze is lying. However, it’s also one of the most enjoyable blog projects I’ve ever completed. It’s been an absolute blast, but it really has come down to the wire. Last Saturday, I was still putting the finishing touches on the styling and scouring the Grayslake Flea Market like a crazed woman on a mission…for which I was. Yes, there are a few things that didn’t arrive on time, but it’s all good. I’m still pleased as punch with the final outcome.

My goal for this room was to bring in a lot of vintage pieces. Mixing old and new. Giving it a twist. Not banking on trends. I wanted the space to be comfy. Cozy. Someplace I’d like to hang out for hours. Challenge accepted. And I have to tell you, in my heart, with every fiber of my body, I know I hit this room makeover out of the park. Since I’m one of those people who can’t hold in their excitement…here’s the final reveal! My office makeover with vintage finds.

Decorist Bedroom Design Project – Before & After Part 3

If you’ve been watching my Instagram, you’ve probably seen a couple sneak peeks of the guest bedroom design project. I moved towards a look that was out of my comfort zone. Right before teaming up with Decorist, I noticed I was obsessing over white and neutral spaces.  Pinning them like I was on fire. Maybe it was because I was also on color overload while redecorating the master bedroom in navy and pink? I don’t know, but flipped the switch, crossed my fingers and hoped for the best. Decorist hooked me up with Ashley Redmond, interior designer extraordinaire. I was psyched!
