QUESTION – WHAT IS THE ONE ROOM CHALLENGE? –
ANSWER – The ONE ROOM CHALLENGE currently in its 11th season, is a bi-annual event, Started by the wonderful LINDA at CALLING IT HOME. 20 TOP Designers Take ONE ROOM and work their magic! . Close to 200 Guest Participants also play along and they ALL design, decorate, transform, renovate, small-scale, large-scale projects and each week – they post updates on their progress. Finally 6 weeks down the road..the BIG REVEALS happen!!!!
IT IS – in a word – SPECTACULAR!!!!
TODAY is the DAY when ONE ROOM GUEST PARTICIPANTS (ME) AND OVER 150 OTHERS from all over the country – heck, maybe even the world…are all wiping OUR collective brows and saying
“I DID IT!”
and IT is like a BIG GIANT PICTURE DAY!!!! It is like Christmas!!! The GIFTS just keep coming!!!! NOW I need to brew a fresh pot of coffee and some yummy cupcakes (I cannot stop craving cupcakes) to sustain me ( I could get faint) while I look over ALL of the ROOMS!!!
MY ONE ROOM CHALLENGE SPRING 2017
This project was PURE JOY for me…creating a BEAUTIFUL AND SAFE AND COMFORTABLE space for this wonderful family of 6 to enjoy their much deserved
PRECIOUS CHERISHED FAMILY TIME!
Here is one quick last look at the before….
You know how you feel when you have a really great gift for someone, and you are bursting at the seams to show them…where the GIVING is as good for you are THE GIFT!!!! That is THIS ROOM to me!

Once again – thank you. You my friends are my online support system and I appreciate you all more than my words can convey. Your showing up, cheering me on, leaving comments, sharing your thoughts and questions and opinions….mean so much to me and keep this thing going. Sometimes writing a blog can feel – on the one hand – Energizing and Invigorating and mentally stimulating and on the other – A tad indulgent and I wonder if anyone would miss it if it were gone….and I hope you my readers know that for ME – it is all about YOU – sharing with YOU and reaching out and connecting with other like-minded and NOT like minded souls…making this big world smaller and easier to Navigate .
