Entering the One Room Challenge
The One Room Challenge started yesterday and I’m super excited to join in. I’ve actually tried to join and finish two projects last year for both the Spring and Fall One Room Challenges. In the Spring, I tried to tackle a client’s dining room (which I’ve since completed – check it out here), but we had some delays that kept me from keeping up with the One Room Challenge. In the Fall, I entered the One Room Challenge to complete my bedroom in our last apartment, but we decided that we would be moving and I could no longer justify purchasing anything or making any other updates in my apartment.
So now that we’re in our new home (did you see the home tour?), I’m finally ready to start and FINISH a room for the One Room Challenge.
Don’t know what the One Room Challenge is? It’s a 6-week decorating bonanza where LOTS of designers and bloggers join in to complete a space from start to finish. You can join in, too! Want to know more? Click here!
This Spring, I’m joining with our kitchen mini-reno! Make sure you’re (1) signed up to my email list and (2) following me on Instagram to keep up with all the updates.
I’m also excited to share that I’ll have video updates for each of the next 5 weeks of the One Room Challenge, so make sure you subscribe to my YouTube channel.
The Kitchen Before
So, although our home is in excellent condition, it’s really dated. There’s brown trim and doors everywhere, dated carpet, and this epoxy-type floor all over the kitchen and hallways. The kitchen was the first room that I KNEW we were going to have to have redone, but right now we’re not prepared to do a full renovation.
Here’s what the kitchen looked like when we purchased our home a month ago.
Do you live in New Orleans?
Want to work with me, but have been saving up for my design fee? What if I told you that you can work with me for FREE???
I’m working on a web series and want to work with you!
I’m selecting a few projects to show from start to finish via still shots and video for a new web series.
Apply below to have me come over for FREE to transform your room into one of your dreams, through DIY projects, upholstery, paint, and accessorizing. You must have a budget for any new furnishings, fabrics, paint, and tradesmen that are needed to complete your space.
This offer applies to residents in or near the New Orleans area with a budget of at least $2000. Kitchens and bathrooms are excluded. I’ll select from applicants to choose the projects that best fit my new web series. I’m only selecting 5 rooms to transform.
For my web series, I’ll be sharing before, after, progress shots and video, along with my design plan. To transform your room, I’ll work with you extensively, sharing floor plans, elevations, 3D or hand-rendered drawings, fabrics, and design boards. We’ll have lots of fun and afterwards, you’ll get to be surprised with a beautiful room!
I worked on this black and white master bath project a LONG time ago, but I’ve been sharing it on Instagram and remembered that I never shared it here on the blog. Then, my client actually moved out of her home right after we had her first install, so I never got a chance to get professional photos taken OR finish up the last couple of details. It’s a good thing I took decent(ish) photos with my phone, so I can share them with you!
Let’s start with the before photos.
My full-scale interior design services are available to residents in the within 100 miles of the New Orleans area. Working together will be great when expectations are clear on both sides of the table. I’ve been getting a lot of inquiries about my design services, so I wanted to share in detail my design process.
I’m super excited when potential clients reach out to me. At the first email or the first call, I’m already dreaming of the collaboration and scheming ideas for your space. I go through several ideas in my head, thinking about new, beautiful furnishings that I might be able to use in your home. But, obviously, I can’t get started until we’ve chatted about the process, decide to work together, and then sign the Letter of Agreement. (more…)
I’m so excited to show you guys my latest transformation into a gorgeous, bright, eclectic guest bathroom, so I’m just going to jump right in!
At Home and Pfister Faucets partnered with me to transform my mom’s guest bathroom. We changed the fixtures, painted the walls and cabinet, and added some fun accessories. (more…)
I don’t share too many of my work-in-progress design projects, but I promise to get better at it, starting with this living room.
