It's almost time for the next season of One Room Challenge! To kick things off, take a walk down memory lane and prepare to be amazed (and super jealous).
We're thrilled to be partnering up with Linda Weinstein from Calling It Home for the next season of the One Room Challenge. In the coming weeks, we'll be sharing exclusive photos and updates from this spring's participants. For now, to celebrate, we've gathered some of the most jaw-dropping makeovers from seasons' past.
This stylish bathroom chooses two stand-out accessories to totally make the space: A dragon-lined shower curtain and an elaborate mirror, which Linda Weinstein, founder of the One Room Challenge, adores: "I love how the scalloped details of the mirror pop against the sultry wall color."
Weinstein says the African etchings above the bed against dark, moody walls helps this room create an "old world chinoiserie safari" vibe. We have to agree and add that the mixed pattern play helps, too.
This goal of this living room's designer was to create a space that embodied livable luxury. To do this, she balanced the use of dark and light colors and used a mixture of textures to make the room feel sophisticated and inviting.
This bedroom just screams "glamour" — starting with the faux fireplace and ending with the elaborate chandelier. "All of the contrast and deep layering make the whole room so dramatic and elegant," Weinstein says.
The designer of this bright and playful playroom (also seen in our opening image) had no fear when mixing patterns and colors. And we love the bold choice to use malachite curtains to draw eyes over to the light- and art-filled nook.
What do you get when you combine gorgeous marble floors with a stunning grand piano and original artwork (from Ashley Woodson Bailey)? An elegant, yet edgy room makeover, according to Weinstein: "The room really makes everything in it feel important!"
If you want to create a space that your little girl will love as she transitions through all of her growing stages, take a cue from this lavender and grey nursery. "It's so soft and lovely I wouldn't mind it for my own bedroom," says Weinstein.
You'd think marble wallpaper, a Mazzega chandelier, and brass accents would be too much for a space as small as a bathroom — but somehow it all comes together in a sophisticated and mysterious way.
The bold green chair and foot stool in this mostly-neutral room add an eclectic and vibrant pop of color. "I think Saint Patrick would be very at home in that comfortable reading chair," says Weinstein.
This classic entryway gets all of the details right, like the color antique rug and custom artwork. But it's the extra details that takes it to the next level, like an inviting sitting area for guests.
When it comes to getting the bones of your bedroom right, Weinstein says this one nails it: "I love the elegant panel moulding and trim." And she notes that the design is Parisian in its understatement. Sigh, so true.
What surprises Weinstein most about this nook is that so much color and so many individual pieces can be so light and calming. And in case that wasn't enough, the hanging chair takes this space over the edge.
