I’m so excited to be here for another One Room Challenge. Linda at Calling It Home hosts a six week long blog event where 20 participants and many more linking participants spend the weeks designing one room and blogging about it. You can catch my first, second, third , and fourth ORC’s here. My daughter, Tabitha, has been campaigning to have her room done this time, so that’s the plan. She is 12, and while her room has never been very juvenile, she’s ready for something different. I’m going to let her make the decisions. I’m just going to facilitate.
Here’s how her room looked when we bought our house:
Here’s how it looked before the Fall 2015 ORC. We took her bed and moved it to the downstairs Guest Room that I redid for the last ORC. Since then her room has been in design limbo.
Her plan is to move her bed into the plant ledge part of the space. We will hopefully have someone change the half-height wall to a full wall so it will be more quiet and private for her. She wants a platform bed and a net canopy in this space. Here are a few spaces she’s using as inspiration:
The main part of the room will be turned into the office/hang-out space. She’ll have her TV, computer, and a seating area in there. I hope to add storage in her closet and bathroom so she can be more organized. Here are some inspiration photos for this part of the room:
That’s our plan. This week I’m interviewing contractors to find someone who can do the work in our time frame and that hopefully I can afford. Tabitha and I will shop for bedding, window treatments, and art. She wants an entire wall of prints and other wall art. That will take a bit of time to assemble I think.
Have a fabulous week!
What a lucky girl! I’m sure it will turn out beautifully! And I LOVE your idea of enclosing in that plant ledge for useable desk space-so many houses have that and it’s a bit of a waste. This is my first year of ORC, looking forward to seeing how her room turns out!
I really like the canopy and lights. I think it is so much fun to be able to work with your daughter together doing this. She seems to have very clear ideas of what she wants.
I am doing my kids’ bedroom, but they are too little to have many opinions about it (2 and 4 years old). best!
Hi Rachel…Your daughter has a great room! And what 12 year old girl wouldn’t like fairy lights and gold accents 🙂 Can’t wait to see how it turns out!
I love it!! good work!!
Wow Rachel, looks like a real dream room for Tabitha! You both are so Creative!!
Super looking Project!
