Friday Faves: One Room Challenge

I’m home sick with a dog that needs to wear a cone thanks to a little foot problem. So…it’s going to be a FUN Friday over at the cozy cottage.

The basic gist is that 20 seriously talented featured designers as well as numerous guest designers participate in what is usually six weeks to totally transform one room, with the help of sponsors. They had their room reveals this week and there is just so much gorgeousness. Part of me feels totally inept and clueless and another part of me is very much inspired. This week’s Friday Faves is all about my favorite reveals.
