It's week 6 of the One Room Challenge, which means it's the moment you (and I) have been waiting for; the BIG REVEAL!!!!! I promise to keep the post itself short, because I know you're all here for the pictures! I want to take a quick moment to thank Linda from Calling it Home for hosting this event. She does such an amazing job of coordinating all of the details, and bringing together such a stylistically diverse group of talented designers and bloggers. I also want to give a shout out to my fellow participants. I definitely think the best part of this event is the camaraderie between everyone playing along. I've felt such support and love from everyone involved and I can't wait to work my way through all of the spaces later today! And finally a special thanks to House Beautiful for sponsoring all of the fun!
Now onto the reveal. If you're just tuning in, I've been spending the past 6 weeks designing and installing a nursery for the impending arrival of my baby boy this summer. When we kicked off, the room was a complete blank slate. We hadn't touched it since moving in, and at the start of the challenge it looked like a boring box covered in a creamy yellow paint with a lot of spackle holes.
My goal was to come up with a colorful nursery, that like most of my designs is classic with a twist. I wanted it to be a space he could grow into, while still being fun and whimsical at the same time. I landed on a design board that incorporated red, white and blue, as well as tons of prints. I also added in some natural elements to keep the space feeling grounded and help it from being too print heavy. Here is a refresh on the ideas I started with on week one.
Now, after 6 weeks, the room is finished and I couldn't be happier with the results. Even though it is currently unoccupied it has become one of my favorite rooms in the house, and I find myself wandering in there just to sit and look around. The room has a TON of personality, and I think it achieves the goal of being fun and classic at the same time. I love the wallpaper, and am currently feeling inspired to wallpaper just about every surface of my home. The custom dresser/changing table is so cheerful and provides the perfect pop of color. And I like how the whole space feels beachy and nautical without beating you over the head with a theme. I honestly could go on and on forever, but that would probably boar you to tears before even seeing the results. So without further ado, here are all of the pictures of the new nursery.
So there it is! Let me know your thoughts below, and I'm happy to answer any questions. Thank you so much for following along with me over this journey. I really appreciate all of the kind words and support, both on this room design and throughout my pregnancy. Please make sure to check out the other participant's rooms here.
Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to go put my feet up and wait for this little man to arrive. (Just kidding- in real life I'm actually going to go chase a toddler and work on all of the other design projects I've had going on behind the scenes!) Stay tuned for future updates when this little sailor arrives!
