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
