design challenge


Fall always comes with so many great things, the weather is beautiful and crisp, the leaves start to change, pops of colorful pumpkins, but then there is school, soccer, fall fairs, events, the impending holidays approaching etc., etc. So I am going to help one person who has been wanting to start a project or is having a hard time trying to resolve an issue with a project and just hasn't had the time.  So, to alleviate your design issue and help with your challenge, in such a busy time, I am going to offer free design service to the person with the most interesting painting or design challenge. (please be kind, this is to be one issue, one room, not a whole house or multiple projects, remember I will be doing this free of charge!) All you need to do is comment about something you are having a hard time with or a project that you have been wanting to start or just don't know how to get started. But the rules are- you have to become a follower on my blog and like me on facebook. By doing that you will be entered into the challenge. I will keep it open until Saturday, October 20th. At the end of this time I will pick one winner, from there I will post the challenge. I will then work with that person via email, through pictures, and details of the issue, etc. After we have worked through the details and have resolved the design project I will post a follow up to the challenge.
So whether you are struggling with what shade of green to choose or you just want to update the look of a room but aren't sure where to start, I will help solve your design issue. Let the comments begin!

My project is 5 years old (since we moved into our house). Our bedroom is HUGE and completely undecorated. I'd like to keep our bedspread & curtains (both very neutral - black&gray) but I need help choosing accent colors and ideas for decorations & accessories. HELP PLEASE!!

Our living room is a problem design wise for us for 2 major reasons. First, one entire wall is wood- built in shelves, real wood paneling, and a wood fireplace and mantel. I can't for the life of me figure out how to break that space up or what color to paint the room because of that whole wall being wood. The second issue is that we use a door from the outside into the living room as the main entrance of our home, so we need entry way living, along with a clear path to enter the rest of the house. Can't figure out how to set up the furniture in the room to do that. The room drives me nuts considering it's the first thing I see every time I walk in the house.

it is time for our bright pink walls in the dining room to say good-bye. Although they have served us well when we have a power outage. Actually we do in fact need a whole house do over, with the exception of the bathroom you helped me with. Which I love still.

My problem is my living room/den! It is awful- very dark horizontal wood planks separated by strips of mortar, very rustic (if you are into that). I am looking for a solution that would update the room as well as brighten it a bit. It has a brick wall where the fireplace is and only one window- so it very much resembles a cozy dungeon (lol). It also has a darker carpet, so it is not very appealing as is. Furniture is also trashed and needs updating after years do messy kids destroying it...PLEASE help me! :-)

I live in an old, small house with little closet space. It is a constant challenge finding a place for everything with three small children, two adults and two dogs living here! I am always trying to find clever storage solutions and creative locations for storage. I am not being successful at all! Help with this would be amazing!!! I

The only thing I wish I could change about my house is that it doesn't have a mudroom. My family (including 2 small kids and a dog), our friends, and neighbors all walk straight into my kitchen and drop shoes and coats right by the door. I've been ever looking for a creative solution that would be a neat and orderly way to welcome people to our home. Any help you could give would be great!
