ONE ROOM CHALLENGE- WEEK 1

One Room Challenge- Week 1


I am so excited to be a part of this challenge!  What challenge, you say?  Well, Linda from the amazing blog My Crafty Home Life created this challenge to inspire the readers to take on a project.  The group of bloggers below have to face the challenge of re-working and re-designing a single room in 6 weeks.  Some bloggers are working on a room in their own homes and some are working on client's room.  I am choosing to work on a client's room.

This is the bedroom as it is today.  The room is where a 12 year old girl lives.  She has grown out of her baby room and wants a more fun, sophisticated room.  She still likes pink, but not baby pink.  She likes rocking neon pink.  


Do you see the little pillow with the neon pink writing?  It is new and hip and more in the direction she wants to go.  In fact, you can see she is so "over" her existing bed, that she has draped scarves over the headboard.  I love that!



She also has a wee bit of a problem.  The armoire is essentially a "crap collector" as I call them.  Instead, she needs a desk and a place to pin her homework, or inspirational sayings.  Right now, she is taping them on the wall.



The room feels a bit crowded with things everywhere.  As we know, daughters are collectors!  They never like to purge anything.  

Here is some inspiration:

I love the bulletin board with the clean white desk.

How cool is that hanging chair?  The texture from the bean bags is great, too.

So, I am up for the challenge and I hope you are excited to see the fun posts!  Below, Jennifer from The Pink Pagoda created this awesome banner of all the bloggers who are participating in the challenge.  Please go and visit to see what they are doing!  The links to their blogs are pasted below.


Enjoy!!

  3. What fun to use neon pink! Sounds like you have a dream client. I love how she's taking matters into her own hands with the headboard. Can't wait to see what you do here -- I love it will be a huge success!

  4. This is perfect because my daughter wants a room makeover. I can copy this one. It sounds like your client knows what she wants. I actually think she wants your job :). So glad you are doing this.
