Every year, Linda, from CALLING IT HOME holds the very much anticipated
ONE ROOM CHALLENGE or ORC.
And every year, it never fails to deliver such amazing room turnarounds and makeovers!
This year, definitely did not disappoint, here are my most favorites - be prepared to 'drool'!
|BIJOU & BOHEME|
Christine's room is over-the-top FABULOUS! You have to see the Before photos and all the lovely elegant details in this AFTER! That piano alone made me gasp, but the floors and the rest of the furnishings truly make for an Elle Decor Magazine Cover!!!!!! Calling Elle Decor!!!!
Seriously, Albertina makes me want to re-do my family room with her fantastic update on hers!!!! Just so many wonderful and beautiful details in this chic yet still kid-friendly space! Love everything she places in the room - perfect!
The Dynamic Mother -daughter team of Judy & Jess from Brisbane, Australia truly created a globally appealing classic Dining room with this one! I love that they kept their furnishings simple (including the table centerpiece) but managed to mix gorgeous patterns and accents all around the room! New follower and fan here for sure!
What can I say about Sherry's Dining Room but just simply oozing with French country pizzazz and unexpected touches (cheetah pillows in the Dining room ? Genius)! That Dining table and those walls truly made this room a big winner in my books!
|Abby M. Interiors|
You should see the BEFORE photos of Abby's bathroom, this transformation is just truly perfect - simple and very do-able for anyone! Take not of what she did with those fantastic shower curtains?! I want one ASAP!
Reichel's Master Bath Re-do is really so stylish and personal that I wouldn't change any little thing she added in the space! You should check out the fab gallery wall in this small space - just inspiration to the max!
I love Naomi's past ORCs and this one is no different. I was absolutely blown away again with how she managed to turn this oddly shaped (& oddly-roofed) room into a comfy lounge/office for her! I adore the wood details and how she burned, I mean, distressed her beautiful bergere chairs (not in photo). Definitely a space I'd love to lounge in!
|COPY CAT CHIC|
|THE ENGLISH ROOM|
Since I have a tween/teen myself, I adore how Holly transformed her son Bo's bedroom into this eclectic chic space. Just take a look at that ceiling and all the gorgeous patterns and pops of red in the space! Any teen would love this space for sure!
|THE PINK PAGODA|
I truly love the youthful and colorful vibe Jennifer put into her daughters lounge/hang-out space! From the beautiful art works to the gorgeous otomi pillows, I could definitely see even ME hanging out here!
I've called Pam a magician several times, and can you blame me? Just take a look at her recent ORC, you won't believe that almost everything in this room was a DIY project right? Just take a look at that marvelous range hood re-do! Love seeing her weave her magic all thru out her fabulous home!
|CALLING IT HOME|
And finally, the host herself, Linda, showed us how a mudroom SHOULD be done. Yes, I said, mudroom, this is her gorgeous mudroom and I love how she did not use traditional benches and cubbies in this space yet still provide function and lots of style!
I'm still rounding up my ORC Link-up favorites. Yes, there was a link-up party too that I sadly wasn't able to join this year, but ya'll know my 'excuse' right. Hopefully I can join in the fall, for you probably know what!
Have a Fabulous and Inspiring Day!
Would love to hear your thoughts! Please share away...
