The One Room Challenge Final Reveal
Well the day has finally arrived for the One Room Challenge™ final reveal! It’s been a long, crazy and busy six weeks for so many of us and now for the pay off! I’ve been working on making over an unused and dysfunctional office/workroom space into a Modern Coastal Farmhouse inspired room that’s both functional and pretty. It’s been so much fun following the designers and other participants as they make over rooms in their homes all in six weeks! If you would like to see where we started from and how we got to the final reveal, you can follow along with our previous weeks here:
Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5
And to give you a little reminder of what we started with:
I love it! This space will function as both an office and a workroom for me. It’s a small 9’x12′ room so I wanted it to be very functional without appearing cluttered. I removed the shelving units because I knew from past history that they can become a “catch all” for me. I replaced it with this gorgeous modern sideboard from Structube that is clean and sleek and contains so much storage space. The sideboard will hold everything to do with the “office” portion of the room. Everything is neatly hidden away and no clutter means no stress for me!
And did you see that awesome light fixture? I fell for this fixture as soon as I saw it in the Westelm showroom this spring. I love the modern look of it mixed in with some of the wooden pieces in the room. It adds the right amount of tension for my modern coastal farmhouse vibe I was going for.
The top of the sideboard allows me a surface to add some pretty accessories that will change with the seasons. All the lovely accessories here and on my desk (except for the wooden tray and anthropologie candles) are from Homesense!
If you follow me on Instagram, you know how much I love decorating with flowers and these faux hydrangeas from Afloral look so real! They’ll definitely see a lot of use.
I already had this brass mirror hanging in my dining room but I knew it had to come into this room to play off the light fixture and other brassy accents. It really goes so well in here!
Every room needs some texture and something to hold extra pillows and throws and these baskets from Canadian Tire’s CANVAS collection do the job wonderfully!
The pillow in the back is a diy pillow I made from a scatter rug, you can find the tutorial for that here.
We added this barn door because previously there was so much “junk” in our little walk-in closet that there was no room to close the door! I’ve always wanted a barn door and this was the perfect place for one. It really does help with allowing more usable floor space in the closet. The closet will hold everything to do with the “workroom” function of the space, such as my sewing machine, fabric, craft supplies etc.
We still hadn’t figured out what to do for wall treatments until the first week of the challenge! We then decided on board and batten and it was the best decision. I knew I wanted something to go above it to add some colour and pattern. For budget’s sake we decided on this gorgeous stencil called the Floral Fireworks Allover Stencil by Royal Design Studio. I stencilled it using “liberty blue” by Fusion Mineral Paint and it turned out beautifully, you can find the stencilling tutorial here.
We had originally picked another chair for this space but it just wasn’t the right colour and not the most comfy for sitting on for any length of time. I had wanted an office chair with wheels, but couldn’t find one that was both pretty and comfortable. We decided on one we already had and it’s suitable for now until I find that elusive “perfect desk chair” someday.
This rug from Rugs USA, is one of my favourite pieces in the room. It is so pretty and soft to walk on and goes so well with my coastal theme too. I think I want one for my bedroom now!
You’ll also notice that I switched out the above dark indigo cushion for a lighter one. The indigo one was made by yours truly!
I’m so happy with my new office/workroom! It ‘s such a bright, airy and functional space now. I know I’ll get so much use out of it, it’s too pretty not to want to sit in there! Stay tuned for a post on what’s in that sideboard and how I organized the closet coming later. Thanks so much for joining me on my first One Room Challenge journey and don’t forget to catch up on all the other reveals!

WHOA! Can’t believe the amazing transformation you did using our Floral Fireworks Wall Stencil! This room is gorgeous 🙂
Dannyelle @ www.lifeisaparty.ca says
Wow, it looks so great Kim! Love seeing how it all came together. I think my fav. is the light and your modern touches. I love it. Well done.
Thanks Dannyelle, loving that light too! 🙂
You already know what I’ll love the
most about this space: the glossy sideboard, the light fixtures, and then fun styling. You naIled it!
Haha, I knew you would! Thanks so much Ariel! 🙂
Every detail is perfect! Love how fresh your design is. What a perfect office to work and create in.
Thanks so much Laura, I really think it will be a fun space to want to work in! 🙂
Your office is perfection! I can’t decide what I love most but it’s a close tie between the light fixture and the stenciled wall treatment.
OMG Kim it looks so good. What a transformation! (although the room was lovely before as well). Such a great space. PS – love the Blogpodium framed print (I have that in my office as well). High fives to a gorgeous and completed room!
Thanks so much Andrea! Yes, I was looking for something to put in that frame and found that print by Lucy, so glad I was finally able to use it. 🙂
Kim, what a beautiful and serene spot to get work done. I love how the desk is floating in the middle of the room and that wallpaper is absolutely magical! What a transformation! Well done!
Thanks Julie! It was hard to know what position to put the desk. I wanted to be able to see everything instead of looking at a wall. And the wall is actually stencilled and not wallpapered! It looks like wallpaper right? 🙂
Fabulous looking room. Love the bright blue and white!
Thanks, its my favourite colour combo…which isn’t too difficult to tell I know. 😉
So so BEAUTIFUL!! It’s like taking a breath of fresh air! LOVE IT!!
It’s so amazing, Kim! I absolutely love every detail!
This is such a fabulous space! I love the wallpaper and all of the touches of whites, woods and golds. The whole transformation is stunning, Coco

I didn’t even see the light fixture on my first look-through, but once you mentioned it, Yeah! It is really perfect, which is why I didn’t even see it – it’s the ideal fixture for your space!
