Some of my Favorite ORC Rooms

There was so much good stuff that came out of this round of the One Room Challenge, and I’m going to share a few of my faves today.

I’ll stick with my top three of the twenty featured designers. I am head over heels for Waiting On Martha’s new team office – I love industrial spaces anyway, and this one is so wonderfully calm, warm and refined – such a lovely juxtaposition…

Making It Lovely’s bedroom/den space is just dreamy. And again with the juxtaposition – classic Victorian features with a good dose of quirk. Those bugs!

Claire Brody killed it too – her parents’ living room is stunning.

Now for the linking participants. There were over 225, myself included, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed perusing every single one! (Or at least, every one that has posted by this point.) It was very hard to pick favorites – I could have easily listed like seventy rooms here!

The black dining room by Suburban Bitches is one of my favorite spaces of the whole challenge.

I love the total mix of styles in Windgate Lane’s dining room.
There were a lot of awesome kids’ spaces. I love this totally feminine but not overly pink nursery for Little Pink Notebook’s new addition (that floral mobile!)…
…and this one from Preciously Me, which has so many lovely details – the wooden bead shelf is amazing!
Design Loves Detail created a wonderfully textured but still very calming space for her baby boy.
This Mama’s Dance white-washed all the pine walls in her kids’ bunk room and the space turned out so good!
Annabode created a sweet space for her little boy that looks rather sophisticated but rocks a Star Wars theme in the best way…
Lehman Lane turned a double closet into a single with a built-in bed nook. Such a genius idea for a small space!
And Postbox Designs made the most of a wide hallway with a new homework area for her kiddos.
Evidently the black/blush/brass combo is my jam right now – Teal & Grey’s little girl’s room has got it down.
The kiddos weren’t the only ones who lucked out with fancy new spaces. Love on Sunday’s neutral master bedroom is so serene (I do love neutral master bedrooms), and I kinda want to steal that eucalyptus-over-the-bed idea.
Iris Nacole’s “men’s lounge” (her hubby’s man cave) is awesome – up in my top three for sure. I love everything about this room.

I was expecting a lot from A Place of My Taste, and Aniko didn’t disappoint with her fun family room!

And Laurie Jones absolutely made the most of the little loft area in her home.
I love the astro-poof in Kate Collins Interiors’ envy-inducing back yard.
Finally, some damn good little bathrooms…
My Blue Haven
Angie’s Roost
{The Impatient Gardener}
{Wife In Progress}

I had so much fun joining in this round of the One Room Challenge – I’m already scheming ideas for the next go later this year. What were your faves?

    Thank you so much Lizzie for including my little loft in your round up! It means so much to me because that space had me stumped! (:
