One Room Challenge – Week 2

The O’Donnell Collective: One Room Challenge Week 2

Here we are just barely two weeks into the One Room Challenge, and I already have a bit of Murphy’s Law at play! Remember last week how I shared my client’s empty, mattress on the floor master bedroom and the gorgeous blue and grey rooms that were serving as our design inspiration? Well, scratch that. Scratch all of that.

We are starting over, ladies and gentlemen!!! Due to some unforeseen travel obligations for my client, we have to put his design plans (and ORC) on hold. But do not fret – I will not let Murphy and his stupid law get the best of me! With some quick thinking and surprisingly little begging, I managed to convince another client (well, mainly his wife) to let me transform his space for the ORC.

I’m still staying on the masculine path, but this one will infuse a bit of Mid-century with a touch of Industrial, and instead of a master bedroom, I’ll be tackling a home office. Here’s a look at my blank canvas:

My clients moved into their new home a few months ago and already made some major upgrades, including staining the wood floors this beautiful gray color, so other than transforming the mirrored closet doors (my client hates them!) we’ll mostly be focusing on furniture and décor here.

Here’s a look at how we’re planning to lay out the room:

As I mentioned previously, we’re going for an overall look of Mid-century meets Industrial, with just a dash of Global (Mid-Globial?!).  Here are a few of the spaces that we found inspiration in:

How am I going to tie all of that together?  I’m thinking it’s going to look a little something like this:

And with that…I’m off! A few of these pieces are already happening/happened, but the rest I need to get hustling on. We’re picking paint colors this week and hopefully I’ll have some paint on the walls by next week!

  1. Beautiful inspiring rooms. I love the bedroom with the blue walls. Your office is going to be stunning! Can’t wait to see the final reveal.

  2. love the direction you’re taking Lindsey! I think it’s going to look great. By the way, that floor lamp is stunning!! Can’t wait to see the progress. Karolina

    • Thank you, Karolina! I really hope we can make that floor lamp work in, but TBD! I guess I should be deciding that rather quickly, huh? Great work on your kitchen as well – you are a brave soul!

  3. Glad you were able to find a new space to work with! The images for your plan look amazing!

  4. Sorry to hear about the bedroom makeover being put on hold BUT– love love love the office vibe! Can’t wait to follow along as you create it.

    • I guess it’s a blessing that I figured it out after Week 1 and not after Week 4, right?! I think this space will turn it great as well, and best of all, I’m having a good time in the process. Good luck with your pantry!

  5. Oh girl! You are going to love the cowhide ottoman. Room & Board did me well on that bad boy! I LOVE IT! And the rug color you are looking at is perfect! Can’t wait to see!

  6. I love this! Can’t wait to see it unfold. I am also participating in the ORC. Good luck to you!

  7. I love the moody feeling of the spaces you’ve shown. Can’t wait to see how it plays out.

  8. Your inspiration photos are beautiful! Can’t wait to see how your room turns out!
