One Room Challenge Week 1: The Before Photos of Our Living Room + Dining Room

Helloooo One Room Challenge party people! If you’re new around here, the One Room Challenge is a 6-week event where you can follow along for start to finish on a room makeover along with 19 other very talented bloggers and designers (see the bottom of this post for links to everyone participating!). 

Every Wednesday for the next six weeks you’ll get an update on the room, the design plans, progress photos, and even having you chime in on design thoughts! 

The last time I was a part of the ORC crew I was VERY pregnant with Gwen and we did a 6 week crash makeover of our master suite in our current house which you can see here. This time around we have a very spirited toddler “helping” us along as we design the open-concept living room and dining of our new house!

Without further ado, let me give you a little run down on the room we’ll be giving a design overhaul…

The above photos were all taken after we closed on the house this past November and we’ve definitely covered a lot of ground since then! 

There are certain elements that are original to our new mid-century home that we LOVE. And if you haven’t been following our renovation so far, we’re still living in our old house while we knock out the main pieces like the kitchen, bathrooms, scraping the ceilings, and a lot of the other hurdles we’ve come across so far. 

When it comes to this specific space though, these are the major things that will be happening—

  • Keeping the AMAZING original doors, fiddle fig, and the terrazzo at the foyer
  • Removing all vinyl flooring with a much more impactful, light wood flooring
  • Most definitely changing all of the light fixtures
  • Giving everything a fresh coat of paint (any guesses on colors?!)
  • Sticking with the mid-century feel 

ONE ROOM CHALLENGE WEEK 1 | THE LISTING PHOTOS FROM THE BEFORE SPACE

Below are the photos from the listing and what the house looked like when we toured it and put an offer in…

It’s safe to say we should have a pretty dramatic before and after version of this space, don’t you think?! I’m so so excited to start seeing the design elements coming together! 

Be sure to check back next Wednesday to get an idea of the mood board and design plan! In the meantime, here are the rest of the One Room Challenge Spring participants…

    Beautiful home with light filled open spaces. If you want to update the railing in the loft you could put a glass railing up. Or, I saw a coastal home on tv that closed off a loft room to use as an office, by using glass wall so everything still was open and light. The only thing is trying to find non-glare and non-reflective glass.

    • A glass railing sounds sooo cool and probably kid-safe so you don’t have to worry about them try to poke through the railings! XOXO

  • This is such an awesome space to work with! My living room and dining room are also connected together. Looking forward to seeing how you transform this space! Good luck :)

    • Thank you! We love how the living room and dining room connected too just so there is a bigger gathering space. That’s for the good luck. (We are going to really need it!) XOXO

    ya girl! Looking forward to seeing how it goes down! I did our MCM living room for the fall ORC, so I can’t wait to see what you do!

    • Thanks, Ariel! We are excited to be doing it again (and not being pregnant while we do it)!

  • It’s going to be SO good! I love your way with color and your midcentury house has such good bones.

    • Thanks, Kelly! We definitely chose this house for it’s good bones! XOXO

    I can’t wait to follow along and see the transformation! We just bought our first house, so I’m looking for inspiration!

    • Congrats, Ali! We definitely will have a lot of updated posts with the progress (and more things that we learned that hopefully others can avoid). XOXO

    I have followed this blog since the very, early beginnings and I have seen how hard you must have worked to be at this point with this project! So exciting!

    Mid Century Modern is my favorite. I would love to come decorate it for you. I did 15 houses in Michigan and 17 here in Florida. I can’t wait to see how yours turn out.

    • Mid century modern is definitely our favorite too! That’s a lot of houses that you decorated! XOXO

    I’m excited to see your new how come together!

  • Wow those floor to ceiling windows are incredible! The floor to ceiling everything is amazing in your home! I can’t wait to see the finished space 😍

    • Thanks, Corinna! We loved all the windows too and can’t wait to show everyone the finished product!

    Looking forward to seeing what you do to this cool space! Especially loving those doors!

    • Thanks, Sherry! We can’t wait for the final look and yes, the door was a big selling point for us!
