ORC Spring 2021 - Week 6 | Excitement Building
Always love this point of the One Room Challenge when your idea for that special space starts to take form from just a budding concept. It's sort of like a jigsaw puzzle! And by the end...the final pieces all start to fall into place nicely.
Please look back to previous weeks
(Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5)
to see where it all started. The One Room Challenge is a 6 week biannual event started by Linda Weinstein, and sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens. This time around I am tackling my home office/studio to remake it into a space that will serve my work days at home well. It has been extended to eight weeks this year, to accommodate the challenging times we are all facing, and alleviate some of the pressures created from shortages and delayed shipping and to provide some peace of mind!
This year has been quite the challenge for those of us that have adapted to their home spaces serving as work space as well! Last spring at the start of the Pandemic, I had to totally redesign my family den and turn it into a professional office for my IT husband. Please have a look back to see this amazing transformation on Instagram!
And now it is my turn to remake my once everything-craft-bonus room into an efficient, inspiring space for me to operate my Interior/eDesign business out of. How I revamp, refresh, and remake this room over can be all viewed here and did I forget to mention there's only about 2 weeks left?!!
A Trip to High Point Furniture Market (HPMK)
This year has been really challenging to say the least, in trying to acquire product for customers and for myself as well. But, I have managed to think outside the box a little and because of smaller boutique showrooms making inroads and adapting to these ever changing times. I discovered some really neat finds on the streets of High Point this Spring. Some of these might actually make final cut into my new home office/studio.
