Summer is around the corner and that means a couple of things- vacation and usually home renovation projects. If you have dreams of redoing a space in your home you’re in the right place. This week the theme is all about one room challenge projects and inspiring home makeovers for the kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, dining, and living areas.

This weeks features on Thursday Favorite Things are bloggers sharing one room design challenges, kitchen renovation ideas, guest bedroom makeover ideas, and bathroom remodeling ideas.

One room decor challenges and home renovation ideas

For the past six weeks, Maria from Simple Nature Decor Blog has been sharing sneak peeks of her journey with the  One Room Challenge- guest bedroom makeover, here with us at Thursday Favorite Things. This week is the grand finale with the full bedroom reveal! This space is full of comfortable stylish charm with the transitional style combining both traditional and contemporary pieces of furniture. Simple coastal beach art on the walls and seashells framing a large mirror pull in natural elements and add texture to the soothing neutrals and touches of color splashed onto the bedding.  The bedside lighting sconces is a favorite of mine. Maria mounted the lights on the vintage doors and added the beautiful paint finish herself. The tutorial for this project was previously featured on a Thursday Favs post all about door makeovers and creative door projects.

Kitchen Makeover

Roxanne from The Honeycomb Home completed a One Room Challenge too. Her room was a complete kitchen makeover with plenty of before and after photos. She took a dated dark kitchen and brightened it with fresh whites, quartz countertops, and added to the existing builder grade cabinetry for a more custom look with additional storage space.  The transformation is amazing and such beautiful inspiration for anyone hoping to tackle a kitchen remodel this summer.

Dining & Living Room In Progress

Sheila from Maison de Cinq shared a couple of rooms in her home as inspiration for those of us that are in the “in progress phase” of a room renovation project. Her dining room is such a beautiful space with the combination of warm woods and soft creamy neutral whites and greige colors. Her blog post shows several before and after photos of  her dining and living room areas as they are progressing.

  1. What a great collection of remodel projects! There were so many beautiful transformations from the One Room Challenge. I appreciate you featuring my coastal bathroom remodel. I had so much fun putting that space together!


    1. You are welcome, Sheila. I think it is lovely just as it is. People do love to see progressions, though. 🙂
