Down and dirty no more.
It's thought-provoking to look back six-plus weeks when we started our basement laundry and bathroom spruce up for the fall #OneRoomChallenge. So much has happened in the world and in our little corner of it.
Politics and pandemic.
For someone like me who likes to nest, more than ever home is sanctuary. A safe place. Refuge. I know I'm not alone. Home improving is going on everywhere. Whether you are taking part in the One Room Challenge, cheering the community on, or doing your own thing big or small, we are showering our homes with lots of affection these days.
My affair with our new combo bath and laundry room is real. I love taking a space that's neglected and awful and seeing her potential not only for beauty but also for function. And as we learn to do more with less and learn patience during these times of uncertainty, it's a challenge accepted on many fronts.
I hope you like what we've done with the place.
In its eighteenth season, the One Room Challenge™, takes place in April and October. Each round, twenty design influencers take the challenge as Featured Designers. Every Wednesday, the designers document their process over six weekly posts. Better Homes and Gardens is the official media sponsor.
In addition to following along, everyone with a blog or Instagram account, is welcome to join the fun as a Guest Participant by linking their own room transformations up each Thursday, flooding the internet and social media with interior design inspiration, ideas, and encouragement.
This is our second One Room Challenge as a Guest Participant, but it's the first inside project we are tackling in our new home. See our first ORC - the makeover of our flower studio and garden. We are #LovingLeuty.
