Week two of Calling it Home’s Fall 2017 edition of the One Room Challenge is wrapping up, and we’re peeking in to see how some of the design bloggers are doing.

There’s lots of plotting and planning going on, and everyone is trying to take advantage of the early challenge motivation.

First, let’s see who’s talking doors and trim this week…

Ashley Rose was busy placing the finishing touches on her master bathroom design scheme this week over at Sugar and Cloth. In fact, she’s still trying to decide between two looks, and you can help her choose! One thing we know for sure, our True Craft Collection double doors will make the perfect entrance to whatever look she chooses!

You’ll hardly recognize Brittany’s master bedroom this week, which has been transformed from Halloween orange to cool, coastal white. And with an 800-lb. shipment of trim on the way, we’re excited to see the next stage!

Gwen, of The Makerista, is gaining ground this week in her daughter’s pink paradise. She’s laid out her inspiration shots as well as her design choices, including some French Modern-inspired wall treatments with crown moulding, casing, and baseboard.

Brittany weighed in on how to make a dramatic statement in a small office with panel mould and trim to fill the “barren wasteland” walls. She’s also debating whether or not to add a layer of wallpaper once everything is installed.

Not only did Ashley share before pictures of her media room this week, she also spent time picking out her interior finishings. So what did she end up selecting? Ashley’s keeping it a secret for now, but did share that the room will feature vertical moulding and shiplap. Don’t ask us yet—we’re not telling either!

Bethany and Art packed up their 5-year-old son’s bedroom this week, and it’s a good thing, too. They also officially placed an order from Metrie after deciding on our tongue and groove paneling in natural pine.

Kelly Nan took a step in the right direction towards a finished space and is installing her panel mould from Metrie.

We were excited to see Kelley Nan focus on walls and trim elements this week. Before brightening up the space with simple white paint, she had her contractor install solid pine panel mould in artfully stacked boxes framed on each wall. The result is stunning, and it’s going to be perfect with a coat of fresh paint!

Vanessa shared her inspiration for her multi-purpose basement makeover. With a hidden yoga and dance studio planned, a trio of Pretty Simple Collection doors will help keep the gym gear hidden from plain view. Talk about a sophisticated entrance, especially with a glossy black paint job.

And here’s a quick look at how everyone else is doing.

Harlow & ThistleAndrea is using this week to paint walls and clear out clutter as she prepares to renovate her office space.

Coco + Jack: It was demo week over at Coco + Jack, where Canada’s Thanksgiving holiday gave Alyssa and Steve extra time to pull up the existing hardwood floors and frame out a new doorway.

Boxwood Avenue: Chloe decided to take a risk in her dining room by choosing a dusty pretty in pink paint color for the walls.

The Pink Pagoda: Jennifer came to a major realization and decided to install skylights to brighten up her dark kitchen space.

Simply Grove: Kirsten revealed some of the key design elements for her in-laws’ living room this week, with a focus on pattern, color and comfort.

Kim Power Style: Kim and her husband created a blank slate in their bathroom by demo-ing the outdated floor, tile, and vanity.

Deeply Southern HomeLeslie is envisioning her space and diving into moody paint colors and furnishings for her dramatic dining room. She is hoping to complement the existing crown moulding by adding French Curves panel mould to each wall.

Refashionably Late: Ruthie got to work on updating her living room by pulling up the existing carpet and installing a new luan subflooring.

The Dreamhouse Project: Tash and Kes are putting a solid plan underway for their kitchen renovation, the inspiration of which came from a Le Creuset tea kettle!

Shibang Design: Robyn is painting over her mountain mural to make way for neutral white walls and colorful accents.
