One Room Challenge: Week 6 THE BIG REVEAL
Since this One Room Challenge started I have traveled every single week. I truly put the challenge in challenge this go around. I have been on Blogtour Milan with Modenus to Milan and Venice. We headed to Linville, NC. For Easter, I went to Dallas for the Rewardstyle Conference. I turned around and headed to Charleston for a fun 4 days with The Southern C Summit. Today, I am en route to Los Angeles for Legends of LA Cienega and Design Trust meetings. I am beyond grateful for all these fabulous opportunities but I have hit a wall. I am ready for a little R & R soon. I could crawl up in Bo’s bed and sleep for days on end.
Anyway, Bo LOVES his room and has parted with his bunks well. Unfortunately he got a nose bleed in the night before I photographed. Yep, all over the Euro sham….that is hidden under the Rolling Stones pillow. It is always something. On another fun note I realized last Friday I forgot to get a dust ruffle. I ordered this polyester beauty overnight on Amazon, It does the trick. Who knows I may keep it considering the fab Jill Sorenson Bang Bang Bedding was trashed in a few days.
On to the photography shenanigans. I am not sure what I am doing wrong but interior photography is HARD, really HARD. I have a nice camera but everything is grainy and yuck. I switched back to my trusty iphone after many failed attempts. I did not allow enough time to hire a photographer, AGAIN. Will I ever learn? I hope I get the challenge again to prove I can plan ahead.
Cons of the project:
Forgot the Dustruffle
Never Hired a Photographer
Never ordered the desk glass for an under glass scrapbook / collage
Pros of the project:
Bo loves it and I got to meet and watch so many other talents transform their species.

Linda @ Calling it Home
I love this room. My son does not care what I do to his room, ever…so this would be so fun to create. Love all of the vintage mixed with the edgy and modern. Great job, and I don’t know how you travel as much as you do. Crazy.
Speechless! What a transformation. Love those photographs over the desk! And that ceiling! Holy Moly! Great Job!
The Glam Pad
Holly, this room is absolutely STUNNING!!! I love every single detail, but my favorite may be that wallpaper on the ceiling. You did such an amazing job putting everything together, and I do not know how you were able to get it all done with that travel schedule! You are so talented!!
That is one lucky kid… what a wow room! I am in love with the ceiling and the super snappy drapery. I don’t know how you managed to do this and travel! That is insane! Well done.
The perfect teenager bedroom! Great job 🙂
Albertina || Mimosa Lane
What a room! Any boy’s dream. It is spectacular and so fun a the same time. I can’t believe you completed it in between all that fun travel. The wallpaper on the ceiling is just so cool and I love the pops of red. Congratulations! You are so talented.
What a lucky boy!!!! I adore the grasscloth and that ceiling- incredible! Also loving the b/w artwork over the desk and that headboard- soooooo divine! Great job!!!!
Pam @ Simple Details
Oh my gosh, the layers of elements in here are amazing!! It’s so dramatic with the wallpapered ceiling and filled with fun edgy pieces and artwork! Wonderful job, Holly!
Elizabeth @ The Little Black Door
That grasscloth with the wallpaper on the ceiling is just amazing. What a rockin room! Love it!!
Beth Connolly of Chinoiserie Chic
I love this room. The wallpapered ceiling is fantastic. The framed photographs are perfect. You did a marvelous job.
This room looks wonderful! So many lovely elements in this room. My favorites are the headboard, writing desk and the art above the bed!
You did a great job!
you are a rock star (and so is bobo)
Angela, blue i style
What a fantastic boy’s room! I love the colors and patterns, and the art above the dresser looks great! I also did my son’s room for the ORC, so it’s so fun to see another boy space!
What a great transformation!! My son would love this!! I feel like it was extra appropriate that while I was reading this post, Pink Floyd came on the radio. 🙂
This is so incredibly unique, it’s just great!! Love every detail. xoxo.
Ashley @evaru design
Love how this turned out! Totally in love with the wallpaper on the ceiling, gorgeous…
Coolest room for any dude out there! Just blown away with that ceiling and all the little details in Bo’s space!
It looks amazing, even the pictures! Great job!
my not ting hill

That ceiling is amaaaazing. Wow I’m impressed with the way this room turning out! GREAT job 🙂 Such a great room for your son!
Holly….I can’t believe you did this plus all of the traveling! Amen to you sister…..It looks great and the wallpaper on the ceiling totally get’s my vote! You pulled it together for your son and I am sure he is thrilled with it!
So loving the drama brought in by the wallpaper. Everything looks so fantastic, and just stands out so much more. Beautiful job!
The ceiling wow! what a makeover this room is fabulous what boy would not love this room!
It is awesome! I hate to hear about the nose bleed. Cold water should take it out? I am sure he is thrilled with his room…it is great!

Love it Holly!!! Die for the wallpaper on ceiling. And actually, I like the white desk you still have instead of a glass one. And I think the pictures turned out great too – saved yourself some moola right there sister. Anyway, you are fabulous and an inspiration.
tobe | because it's awesome
this is even better than i imagined! the ceiling!! you nailed it with the mix of patterns and tight color palette. the campaign desk is delicious against the blue grasscloth, and i probably don’t need to tell you that the rattan pieces make my heart skip a little 🙂
mrs. V - Chez V
This room is fit for a rockstar! The grasscloth paired with the ceiling paper is crazy good and all of your layered elements are fantastic. I especially love the desk/rattan bookshelf/art corner. Yes ma’am!!!!!
Try hydrogine peroxide on the sham. It should come right out. This room is incredible and I’m sure your son is sooooo happy!! I love every single bit of it and want to know how it’s possible to design long distance?!
I love this room! You did an amazing job! I really enjoyed following along with you (wish I could have traveled with you too- so cool) and I think your son is very fortunate to have such a talented mom.
Abby M. Interiors
As a mom of boys, I appreciate/love this room with my whole heart! I fully believe that we shouldn’t design down to our kids, and this room is the PERFECT example. What a lucky guy. The art– that incredible headboard– the wallpaper on the ceiling– I’m in love with it all. Congrats on a great space. xx
Unbelievable! This room is so cool! I better not show it to my son (especially since i did my daughter’s room for the ORC). I love all of the touches that any boy would love, the rock and roll references, the jaws poster and I also love all your vibrant color choices! Well done!
