One Room Challenge

Hope your week is going well! Typically Wednesdays are set aside for Wednesday Wish List but to be honest, I'm starting to stray away from that series. With work and class, my blogging time is a bit more limited than it was in the summer. So when I do have time to post I'm finding I'd rather share with you guys other things beside my wish list. From time to time I might share a list of things I'm loving, just not as regular as in the past. How's that sound? Also, please let me know if you like (or don't like) a post, so I know if I should be doing more of a certain type.

Last night while browsing one of my new blog favorites, Design Manifest, I came across the One Room Challenge. It's a 6 week long challenge where interior design bloggers decorate or re-decorate a room. Now 6 weeks is not a long time to finish an entire room, so to keep motivated, the participants share weekly updates on their blog and link to each other so everyone can follow the process and are sort of held accountable. I don't think a winner is chosen at the end of the 6 weeks so it's more of a "here's the chance to finish that room in your home you've been putting off for months" challenge which I think is pretty clever if I do say so myself. There are a total of 20 interior design bloggers that were selected to participate in the challenge and it's also open to the public this year. The One Room Challenge officially kicked off last Wednesday so I'm a week behind. I thought about joining the challenge and "finishing" my apartment, but then I started thinking about it and that would be really unfair. While everyone else is slaving away trying to finish their room in time, I'd be over here straightening a frame on the wall and reorganizing my shelf accessories. My apartment is pretty much complete and I actually shot a video of it on Monday! Now I'm just trying to figure out how to edit the video and stuff... Once I figure that out I will officially reveal my apartment!

Anyway, if anyone has a room they want re-decorated, I'd love to do it as part of the One Room Challenge! Let me know. We could do it as an e-design, meaning you would send me photos of the space and then we'd discuss designs/inspirations/budget and I'd select the items for you.

Go check out the participants as they begin their 6 week long One Room Challenge!
