I’m so excited to be participating in my sixth season of One Room Challenge!

Here’s a look at my favorite past ORC’s (and you can tour all of them in links below):

This season I’ve decided to makeover our guest bedroom. It’s always been the room that inherits leftover furniture and decor so it has zero sense of design.

Our most frequent visitors tend to be nephews and nieces, and one of their favorite activities is to people watch and skate at our local skate park so a relaxed, cool vibe is inspiring the look. I’ve found a lot of inspiration in Nina Freudenberger's Surf Shack, and I know I’m incorporating this awesome Artfully Walls piece, Boy’s on Skates, into the design.

I want the room to be a little offbeat & funky, but still pulled together. I’m a little worried it may look contrived, so wish me luck. I’ll be in San Fran next week for an exciting designer retreat so I’ve got to kick my planning into high gear!

Come back next Wednesday for updates, and In the interim, you can find my scheming on Instagram & pinterest.

Holiday home decor, Jana's Top Tips on Style My Pretty Living

I’ve never been one to edit our decor for the seasons, but this year we decided to have a huge holiday party & I wanted our home to relay a festive vibe that invites guests to stay awhile. In tweaking our spaces, I arrived at three top takeaways to get your home holiday-ready without completely overhauling every detail.

Here's my first tip & I'm excited to be sharing all of them over at Style Me Pretty Living today! 

Fresh greenery

Given our homes coastal vibe, I wanted the greenery to be a bit softer. As our local Michigan options are heartier, I took the task to Etsy. In doing so, I sourced this gorgeous (looking and smelling) bay wreath

Then, I’ve always wanted to work with magnolia, and thankfully my go-to florist, at the University Flower Shop, was able to source it for me.

I so enjoy that both the bay wreath, and magnolia branches, are drying now but are still so pretty.

Get the rest of my tips over at Style Me Pretty Living, I hope they resonate with you!

Happy holidays to you & yours!
