One Room Challenge Week 3 featuring: The Mine, Article, Bellecor, Hayneedle, and Annie Selke

One Room Challenge Week 3The fact that it’s already week 3 in the One Room Challenge is making me feel equal parts excited and terrified! We still have so much to do! However, everything is in the works and I can say with full confidence that this office space is going to be amazing. It’s taken awhile to get a firm plan of action, so many decisions! But, we’ve finally gotten a handle on the overall design. Our color palette has shifted a bit from our last post (see Week 2, HERE) and it is going to be quite dramatic, especially when compared to where we started (see Week 1, HERE). We’re all about making an impact here!

Check out all the components and get a peek inside our design process!

One Room Challenge week 2

We have joined 20 bloggers (see the full list below!) for the biannual One Room Challenge. Join us for 6 weeks as we show the start to finish of our office makeover! 

Last week I announced our participation in the One Room Challenge and showed some ahem, glorious, before photos of our office that we will be renovating. We got a late start on the challenge so we are in massive make-up mode over here, not to mention it’s our busiest time of the year plus two major deadlines this week. Doesn’t this crisis mode always seems to happen at the same time every year? Or maybe just every 3 months? 1 month?

I wanted to start with some inspiration for the room like this one above. Read on →

One room challenge week one

One room challenge with The House That Lars Built When it comes to the spaces I live and work in, I’m always itching to rearrange furniture, try a new paint color, and mix up the style. However, it’s hard to make the time unless I have a deadline to motivate me. Anyone else thrive on deadlines?! Lucky for me, I got the kick in the pants that I needed! I’m thrilled to announce our participation in the Fall 2017 One-Room Challenge! Over the course of six weeks, I’ll be one among 20 design bloggers taking you along our redesign process and showing how you too can redesign your space with a few simple steps! From wallpaper and lighting to furniture and rug selection, we’ll show you the ins and outs of the design process starting with these MAJOR BEFORE photos. YIKES! Sometimes you don’t know how bad something is until you look at it through a nice lens…and thousands of followers. It’s going to be a fun ride! Read on →

October desktop wallpaper

October 2017 desktop wallpaper

October made her grand debut here with cold temperatures, rainstorms, and leaves that seemed to change colors overnight. Clearly, she wanted to make an entrance! And although I had to hustle to unpack my sweaters from storage, it was a welcome change of scenery, literally. I love our new October Desktop Wallpaper because it so perfectly captures the magic of Autumn! I had a chance to go on a walk this past weekend and the brisk weather and falling leaves were just what the doctor ordered. So let’s all try to enjoy the subtle, and not so subtle, signs of Fall this month!

Disco Ball Ceiling Installation

DIsco ball ceiling hanging

The Disco balls have been trending over the past year and who can complain? With the way it catches the light and the tiny little mirrors, it deserves to have another moment in the sun! The resurgence of the mirrored ball got our wheels turning. We decided we needed to take the traditional disco ball to the next level. This Disco Ball Ceiling Installation is much more elevated than the traditional and will leave everyone gawking at your next shindig. Even if you’re not throwing a party, you can easily use this piece as home decor. And with just a few styling adjustments, this installation can transition from party decor to permanent art piece. A millennial pink color palette brought it all together! Can’t you picture it in a chic little loft apartment with a lush velvet couch? I’m thinking something like this or this. Long live the disco ball!DIsco ball ceiling hanging Read on →
