ONE ROOM CHALLENGE- GIRL'S BEDROOM BEFORE {WEEK 1} - Dimples and Tangles

ONE ROOM CHALLENGE- GIRL'S BEDROOM BEFORE {WEEK 1}


I honestly can't believe I'm jumping into this, because until yesterday I had absolutely no plans to, but we're in for another round of the One Room Challenge!  (And I say "we're" because the ORC is always a family affair around here!)




If you're unfamiliar with the One Room Challenge, it's a biannual 6 week event made up of two parts- "Featured Designers" who are selected by the organizer and share their designs every Wednesday, and "Guest Participants" who can choose to participate on their own and link up their post with other bloggers taking part each Thursday.  It's not a contest, the "challenge" is personal for each participant to get a space finished.  Regardless of the group, a whole lot of people accomplish a whole lot of pretty things over those 6 weeks!

I have participated in the One Room Challenge twice in the past, and I can't believe those projects are now 2 and 3 years old!






This time I chose to makeover my daughter's room for the ORC.  Since the first of the year we've been planning to update her room at some point, but just yesterday I decided that we could make it an ORC project!  Needless to say, we've had a slight direction in mind where we're headed but the majority of the decisions still need to be made.  



It's bold, bright and colorful and has been a fun room for her to grow in for the past 7 years.  


However, she'll turn 15 just a few days before the final reveal date, so we figured this was perfect timing for an update.  


This isn't going to be a major makeover, we'll just be working for a bit more grown-up vibe.  I made most of the design decisions in her current room, but this time she has a better idea of what she wants, so we'll be working together more closely to create a space she'll love and that functions well for her at this stage of her life.  I did however tell her the black and white striped wall had to stay!  ;)


We're working to finalize our plan and design board, and I'll share that with you next week.  Be sure to check in on what all of the other Guest Participants are up to today!

  7. Can't wait to see how you take this (already extremely charming) bedroom into a new era for your growing girl! I'm pretty much drooling over the black and white striped wall, so it's a relief to hear that it's staying. I might just have to stripe up my own bedroom!

    Happy decorating!

  10. Jennifer,

    Your ikat curtains in your master bedroom hung in our last house's dining room. We are textile spirit animals I believe:) I can't wait to see what you do with your space. I love that you noted that this challenge is a family affair because it TRULY is! It takes a village right?! We are participating in our first ever ORC by making over our mudroom! Best of luck to you!

  12. Regardless of what the final outcome might be - I'm as much impressed that your 15-year-old daughter 'allows' you to be involved. Teen daughters are a precious breed known for their daily highs and lows. I'm sure the final product is going to be snazzy!
