The ORC Spring 2024 Starts Today!

I’m so excited to join the One Room Challenge again this year! I love this challenge because it gives me the momentum to design and complete an entire space, on a set timeline ~

In case you aren’t familiar, the One Room Challenge (aka the ORC) is a blogger event in which participants showcase their room renovations within just 8 weeks. It was created to encourage other participants in their home projects and hopefully spark inspiration for others along the way.


The past few months have been a whirlwind with moving and getting our family settled into our new home in South Carolina. It can feel overwhelming at times when it comes to decorating a new construction home. So many blank walls are finally starting to be filled though! I had big plans for some of the spaces initially, but I’m glad I waited a little bit before diving into those.

I keep having to remind myself to take it one space at a time – so this Spring, we will be working hard to give our sunroom a complete overhaul.

It’s a main space in our home and here is what it currently looks like ~ we kind of just threw a lot of spaces together quickly once we moved in!

**BEFORE***

The sofa will stay, but I’m not exactly sure yet what the final furniture layout will look like quite yet.

I love our coffee table (a recent thrifted find) but the glass isn’t ideal right now with our children being so young. I’m leaning towards ottomans in lieu of a coffee table instead, but we shall see!

The biggest changes planned are adding a statement wallpaper (our entire family is excited about the bird wallpaper), painting the ceiling, installing beautiful crown molding, window treatments and lighting. With these things updated, I know the furniture plan will fall into place!

Below is my initial design board with some of the ideas planned. Some things may change as the weeks progress, but this is a start.

TIMELINE

Here’s a rough draft of the timeline over the next eight weeks. I know things will change since I’m still confirming some of the plans, so consider this a very rough draft.
