One Room Challenge: Week One

Filed Under > Ideas & Inspiration

Palm Beach Inspiration 

If you’re not familiar with the One Room Challenge it goes a little something like this: Twenty designers/bloggers (listed below) have six weeks to completely transform any room of their choosing.  Each week, on Wednesdays, we’ll share our progress and hopefully provide a little insight and inspiration into just how the design process works.  For my last One Room Challenge, I chose to re-design my office (seen HERE), with my biggest hurdle being the time frame.  I tend to procrastinate.  This time I’ve chosen to design our upstairs loft.

I haven’t done much with our loft since we moved in two years ago.  It’s not the most inviting space with an awkward shape and absolutely zero natural light so I have my work cut out for me.  First step; inspiration.  Drawing from the colorful, and sometimes quirky vibe of palm beach I’ll be transforming our loft from dark and gloomy to warm and inviting.  There’s plans for a bar (obviously), a reading nook, and hopefully a spot for one of our favorite games, backgammon.  

Truthfully I haven’t even begun so we’ll see how this all plays out, but in the mean time welcome to my second One Room Challenge.  I hope you love this new journey as much as you loved the previous.  And tell me, what room would you redecorate given the time?  Truly, MKR

    I’ll be doing my entry way and powder room as a linking participant with the ORC. This six week time frame gives me the push to get a room done in my house. Will be following along to see the progress of your room. I am sure it will turn out great!

    Ohhh….I find your office ORC absolutely unforgettable. It swoons me EVERY time! All the tangerine Hermes and floral accents and the glorious wall coverings with the best use of acrylic chairs I’ve ever seen. Those PERFECT curtains. And all the gold any girl has ever wanted outside of her jewelry. Mandy, whatever you come up with, we will adore, I’m sure!
