Week 5 of the One Room Challenge in our farm living room has been a solid week of action! And while we still have a lot of work ahead of us, the progress is adding momentum. To the point where I didn’t even want to stop painting to write this blog post! But it’s good to share this turning point of the “messy middle” to inspire more projects in the future.
Week 4 of the One Room Challenge in our farm living room felt certainly like “the messy middle.” For a moment I couldn’t remember if we’re on week 4 or week 5. It’s that kind of vibe! And Week 4 of our One Room Challenge farm living room was all about paint, paint, and MORE paint. And I’m not done painting. Here’s some updates and thoughts from the week!
Week 3 of the One Room Challenge for our Farm house living room has definitely been a week of planning. Because those who have hired me for interior design know very well – I like to plan before we start bringing product in. And while the first week I shared the initial mood board for the project, I’ve created a materials and color palette mood board this week with updates from the products I’ve been sourcing.
For any given category of home items, there’s SO many different ways to organize any given one. If you took my recent Decluttering Personality Type Quiz, I’ve received feedback that just taking it has inspired decluttering projects. As a type 3, I’m a closet connoisseur of organization inspo of all kinds. So in wanting to share some visually stunning organization ideas with you, I went to search the entirety of my Pinterest boards, and had pages and pages of options. From there, I selected my top 10 favorites that I felt were 1) beautiful, 2) practical, and 3) repeatable. And spoiler alert, most of them were created by fellow designers and professional organizers. So if you’re all amped up to tackle a closet or a whole room this weekend, here’s my 10 BEST designer inspired organization ideas for your viewing pleasure!
So my very first blog post “Where to Shop Budget Home Essentials” is definitely one of my most referenced articles on this whole site. This is probably because it’s SO on-brand for what I do for people. The process goes a little something like this… 1) I need something for my house or a client project. 2) I end up shopping between 2-7 different stores and give myself a total headache until I find something that I’m satisfied with the price and quality. 3) I share where I found said “thing” and why you should shop for similar items there. 4) You benefit from my picky and budget-friendly ways. So I thought I’d put together a similar list for the holidays for you, because if there’s any time of year you’d like to save a little money to use elsewhere, it’s now! Back by popular “demand”, I present the Budget Home Essentials – Holiday Edition list!
