Have you guys been following the Fall One Room Challenge? I like to think of it as playoffs for people who care more about design than professional sports. Except instead of a competition, it’s a supportive community. It’s a goal of mine to participate one day, but for now I’m just appreciating all of the hard work and beautiful results of the people who did.
Today I’m highlighting the work of the guest designers because they don’t get the kind of attention (or sponsored products) that the featured designers do, but some of them do amazing work with impressively small budgets. Which means lots of hardcoare, inspiring DIY. So while there are lots more great rooms that I could have called out, here are 6 of my favorite spaces from the Fall 2018 One Room Challenge guest designers.
From the fun wallpaper, to the cool diagonal wall paneling, to the sink and faucet, I think I love everything about this tiny bathroom from girl & grey.
Floral wallpaper on a mudroom ceiling doesn’t sound like it would work, but here, it totally does. When you see the before of this space from Bright Green Door, it’s hard to believe it’s the same room.
This dark and dramatic living room looks like a perfectly cozy place to curl up with a good book and some tea, or some wine and some chatty friends. Hopefully rooms like this one from Melissa Grieve Interiors will help convince people that not every room in every house needs to be all-white.
Bathroom makeovers like this one from Noting Grace are especially impressive, because they require a ton more work than the new furniture and paint that people can get away with in other rooms. Having done only a tiny bit of tiling, I can tell you that a lot of time and energy was well-spent on this beautiful bathroom overhaul.
This is another dark, dramatic room that totally nails it for me. I’d happily settle into Bloom in the Black‘s loungy library for a cocktail or two, wouldn’t you?
Though this room from Jeweled Interiors is very different from my usual taste, I really love the beautiful and fun mix in this space. I never would have thought to put most of these elements together, but it totally works!
