We had to pop in to do a quick happy-dance blog post! The results of the Fall 2017 One Room Challenge are in, and we were selected as one of House Beautiful Magazine's Top 10 favorite guest participants! Wha?! Pinch us now!

As House Beautiful explains,

“It's always exciting to see the creative results from this guest crew — how people tap the trends, who falls back to classic styles, all the textiles and color — and this year's guest group (there were 200+ total!) didn't disappoint. We were honored to be asked to pick two guest participants to join next spring's challenge. To decide, we asked House Beautiful editor in chief, Sophie Donelson, to comb through all the amazing transformations. Below are 10 rooms that really stood out to her and what she loved.”

What a thrill to have our work reviewed and chosen for this honor by Sophie Donelson herself! (And if you know Laura Irion at all, you completely understand why she wants to put the words “It’s like an old movie come to life!” in a frame somewhere). 

We’d also like to offer huge and heartfelt congratulations to the two WINNERS of the challenge, Natasha Habermann and The Gold Hive! Be sure to check out the stunning projects that earned them a well-deserved spot among next season's Featured Designers.

And if you missed it, you can see the full reveal of our Powder Room project here. Thank you so much to House Beautiful, and thank you to Linda, of Calling It Home, for creating the crazy and thrilling ride that is the One Room Challenge! We can't wait for the next one.
