One Room Challenge - The Chinoiserie Chic Powder Room

I am once again participating in the One Room Challenge which launches on Wednesday. I have chosen my powder room. Twenty interior designers, interior design bloggers, and DIY bloggers will have six weeks to transform a room of their choosing from start to finish.

My room is profoundly ugly. It is actually a second powder room in the house - a tiny little room off the laundry room and garage obviously done by the last owners on the cheap as a little spot to wash up after working in the garden. With three other bathrooms in the house, I have chosen to ignore its existence to date.

This challenge is a great opportunity to give it some much needed attention. I hope to create a Chinoiserie Chic powder room with lots of creativity and Chinoiserie and not a lot of $$$. I hope you will follow this little decorating adventure.

To see my Chinoiserie Chic kitchen from the last One Room Challenge, click here. Below are powder room photos from my files I am using for inspiration. Come back on Wednesday to see before photos of the ugly duckling and my inspiration board.

  4. Looking forward to this. I remember from my days working in advertising that the smallest budgets often were the most creative. Choosing not to throw lots of $$$$ at something for whatever reason, often feeds a more creative environment. I know this one will be most chic!

  5. Powder room makeovers are so fun! Looking forward to seeing your space, Beth!

  6. Ahh so exciting! Do you know if it's too late to participate? I'm re-doing my office and would love to join in on the fun.
