Be BOLD 🧞♀️ Be DARING
Taking a risk is, taking a risk and as a guest participant of @oneroomchallenge with designers nationwide, I felt empowered, motivated and definitely inspired to take risks that I might not have taken otherwise. During these past 8 weeks I have pushed myself to be a little more bold and a little more daring, while working hard to complete my Home Office Re-Magined design.
I have mixed carpet and drapery patterns with floral tapestry. I added a bold accent wall, I recovered my heirloom chair for longevity, maintaining the integrity of the chair style with fabric that transcends time. I figured out a creative way to store my magazine collection. I re-wired a vintage chandelier and have utilized furniture and accessories from my own home.
There’s a lot of quirky and special items in this room but that’s the fun part for me, it keeps me on my toes and reminds me that it’s ok to be different!

Here’s my takeaway from being involved with the #oneroomchallenge:
▪️It takes determination to repurpose. Seriously! It’s a lot of work. I could have easily walked into a store and purchased all new pieces but I keep my focus on utilizing design items from my home - even down to the drapery rod brackets. I had the correct size of bracket but not the right color. I dug through my paint shed and found a spray can of silver paint and sprayed the brackets to match the others.
▪️The pressure to complete this project in 8 weeks is motivating and challenging. Watching all the other designers manage their projects throughout the weeks kept me inspired and focused.
▪️The support and feedback from new friends of the One Room Challenge and my clients propelled me to keep the momentum and to do my best.
