ONE ROOM CHALLENGE: TYE STREET SOLARIUM

ONE ROOM CHALLENGE: Tye Street Solarium | Inspiration on Thou Swell via @DomaineHome #oneroomchallenge
(via Domaine Home)

I’m excited to announce that I’ll be joining in on the One Room Challenge fun on Thou Swell this year, and transforming the last room to be touched in the Tye Street Project: the back room. As you can see from the before pictures below, the space is huge with a tiled floor, two huge garage doors that open onto a patio, and an awful faux-bois wall. Since it’s a rental, I’ll be transforming the space without any permanent changes. The space is right on the back of the house and the garage doors are perfect for opening up the space for outdoor/indoor entertaining from spring through fall, so I’m working on a layout that will be comfortable but versatile for opening up the space for any type of party. The other challenge is breaking up the room into separate areas, as around 1/3 of the room is a workspace for my dad. You can expect a fresh coat of white paint, some plants to green up the space, and some bright colors and bold patterns to create a lively, energetic room. I can’t wait to get started!

If you aren’t familiar with the One Room Challenge, it’s a link-up started by Calling it Home, who picks 20 bloggers to participate in the challenge each year (but anyone can join in on the fun, like me, and participate on the sidelines)! Check out everyone’s first week post here.

As you can see I’m feeling inspired by tropical accents, bold colors, natural textures, and a bit of greenhouse plant life… See the Before picture of the room below (and see more before pictures of the Tye Street Project here):
