Mandy is another returner to the ORC, and this time she’s outdone herself with this light and lovely office! I want to move right in (set up a desk for me, will ya, Mandy!?). I love the lounge and work areas – it’s cozy but spacious with lots of soft textiles, textures and warm woods to really warm up the industrial space. And how about that coffee table!? I’m not normally a fan of a glass top, but that ‘bead’ look is killing it.
If there’s one thing I love it’s a soft, layered bedroom! The combination of textiles chosen by Kristin for her bedroom are divine. She even snuck in a little blue chintz, which makes me happy to no end. I’m not a huge fan of the mirrored nightstands (just not my style) but the artwork above it is one of my favorite pieces from Minted. She also killed it with details like this quartz knob with a hanging tassel. DETAILS PEOPLE!! SO good.
I admire Naomi and her total commitment to the craziest projects in the ORC every time she does one. There’s no ‘just making over my powder room’ for this girl. She tackles full on apartments and kitchens! And of all her past projects, this might be my favorite. I love her bold use of black and white, the shiplap plank wall, and a hit of color in those fabulous wishbone stools and the window covering! I might be most inspired, however by the marble subway tile wall. I’ve been struggling with what we’ll do with ours, and this is making me want marble REAL bad.
There was a LOT of pink in this round of the One Room Challenge, but my favorite shade might belong to Pencil & Paper’s guest room. I especially love how it pairs with the antique chest and the rattan bed (a favorite from Serena & Lily!). I would happily take this as a guest room when visiting a friend! There are so many thoughtful details in here – the sweet sitting room area and beautiful bath just top things off! Traditionalism with a hint of mid-century modern is a lovely combination of styles in this space.
I could keep going, because the spaces were SOOOOO good, but here are just a few more favorite details from the rooms, and then you have to just go check them all out yourself to get all the details, sources, and inspiration! Here are a few more quick highlights…
- I loved seeing someone take things down a notch in their home. The Vault admitted that the spotted walls in her current entryway just weren’t doing it (too busy for a busy space!) and created this beautiful, serene black and white moment instead. I so approve.
- Another bedroom in pink and blue, Nicole at Making It Lovely’s take is a little more high contrast and playful than the previous one! My favorite part? These fun eyelash pillows! She always has such whimsy to her decor – you have to check out the rest of her reveal to see some major fun wall art.
- If you don’t know the blog Thou Swell, you’re in for a treat – high schooler (YES HIGH SCHOOLER) Kevin O’Gara has quite the eye and I’ve loved watching his blog grow the past few years! Check out the bedroom he did for his dad, complete with my new favorite from from Target (that I’ve been keeping a secret from everyone until I find the perfect place for it in my house).
- The tile and wallpaper in Simplified Bee’s bathroom renovation alone are worth popping over for! She also had lots of thoughtful details and use of space that only a designer could come up with.
