Happy October! It’s, without a doubt, my favorite time of the year. I love the cooler temps and changing colors that Fall brings. For the past couple of years, Fall for me has also meant that it’s time for another round of The One Room Challenge™.
This will be my 4th round of participating in this biannual event. I am so excited for this round as I will be working on a Home office space for my Daughter and Son-in-law. Last year they bought the cutest 100-year-old Bungalow in a suburb of Chicago. The two of them have spent many weekends and evenings working on making their new abode into a lovely home, but after an entire year of projects have understandably run out of steam.
My SIL works from home and needs a functional workspace (instead of working around unpacked boxes), and they, of course, want the space to be as beautiful as the rest of their home. I am thrilled they asked me to design it.
The vibe I am going for is:
The rest of the home has a mid-century vibe, so I want to keep that flow going. The room is 10 x 10 (so a small space) and currently holds unpacked boxes from the move and a too-small desk area. They also have doors and windows on each wall to work around. My goal is to bring a larger workspace as well as additional storage in. I’d also like a cozy corner where my daughter and their furry family members can sit and keep him company.
We have six weeks to complete the room, and I will be doing most of the work on the weekends (that’s the exciting part).
On the list of things to be completed:
DIY DESK/ DIY SIDE TABLE
LIGHTING/ WINDOW TREATMENTS
GALLERY WALL/ STORAGE
I hope you will follow along over the next six weeks to see our progress. I’d like to say thank you to The One Room Challenge™ and media sponsor BETTER HOMES & GARDENS.
