I am SUPER excited and a tad behind already for my second One Room Challenge. This is a semi-annual event where 20 design oriented bloggers transform a room of their own, from start to finish. For the next six Wednesday’s we will be giving you updates on our room progress.
See my first one HERE. It is a great opportunity and motivation to GSD (as stated by Meg Biram). As a designer, my home is always akin to the cobblers children. I do things for me last and am burned out by the time I need to finish my own home. I also can make 100’s of decisions a day for clients without hesitation but, for myself it is harder, which is very unlike me.
This challenge I will be tackling my son’s bedroom. It is small and boring room with a few basics I plan on keeping but nothing special or remarkable. It needs SERIOUS help. The main things to note is that Bo is 11 and growing like a weed. He seems to wake up measurably bigger each morning. The bunk beds are ready to move along to another home and be needs a big boy bed. I still want his room to be handsome and chic but, comfort is key. If it were up to Bo, it would be a 60″ flatscreen and a recliner sofa. Needless to say, it is not up to Bo. I am setting out on making him a proper bedroom that will last until he goes off to college (tears…) while reflecting his interests and maintaining masculinity.
Bo loves music and rock and roll, marine life, animals. I have some tricks up my sleeve and am ready to roll ladies.
These images are RAW. Yep, my house has piles of book, messy desks, closets to be cleaned and toys that need to be removed.
Items to keep:
Ralph Lauren Lighthouse Stripe curtains ( i did these a year or so ago but lost steam)
Antique painted chest
Now that I have literally aired my dirty laundry, I plan on sharing my the BIG PLAN next week. I cannot wait to rid this room of all the JUNK!!!!!
Let the games begin.
Please be sure to see the other challengers this week and every week for their progress. I am honored and humbled to be among these INSANELY TALENTED DESIGNERS!
