October 14, 2016
by The Finished Space

The designers and design bloggers participating in Calling It Home’s Fall 2016 edition of the One Room Challenge™  have hit the ground running and we have the lowdown for week two!

Even with some minor road bumps along the way Tricia, of Suburban B’s, managed to make progress in her kitchen, breakfast nook and family room design. Next up for Tricia, installing the Metrie trim! To see the headway Tricia has made, click here.


Week two was all about the moulding for designer Kirsten Krason, of House of Jade InteriorsThe existing trim in Kirsten’s home is fairly modern. To be consistent with the current style, Kristen opted for trim elements in Metrie’s Very Square and Pretty Simple Collections. The trim will be installed later this week and we cannot wait to see what the reveal!


Next up is designer Shannon Claire, of Burlap and Lace, who spent most of her week dealing with “The Great Fireplace Saga of 2016”! But even with her fireplace fiasco (which by the way is stunning!) Shannon managed to tape out where the moulding will go and was able to get most of her trim cut and is hoping to have it installed for next week. Click here, to see Shannon’s progress.

Hat Tip: The Makerista

At 36 weeks pregnant, Gwen, of The Makerista, has made significant strides in her sunroom, which will be turned into a duo work space and nursery. This week, Gwen and her husband Micah tackled their outdated popcorn ceiling and prepped the walls to make way for the trim which they are planning to install next week. See more of Gwen’s progress, here.


This week designer Sarah Walker, of The Curated House, tackled the flu and the not so glamorous but extremely necessary task of installing drywall and electrical in her 1960’s basement. Sarah also selected just the right white which will make her space pop! Next up for Sarah is finalizing and install the wall panelling, painting and recover from the flu.

Designer Sherry Hart, of Design Indulgence, lays it all on the line in her week two ORC roundup. This week, Sherry plays it cool and selects the paint, fabrics, prints and furnishings with the common theme of black, neutrals, texture and layering for her master bedroom redesign.

Joining as a guest participant is designer extraordinaire Vanessa Francis, of Vanessa Francis Design.  This week Vanessa shares her design plans to bring charm and easiness into her new kitchen.

Also joining the One Room Challenge as a guest participant is Leslie, of Paper Daisy Design, who has already made major progress on her master bathroom remodel.
