For us, November is all about turkey and the "One Room Challenge" reveals — seriously. And for season 11 (and 10!) of the challenge, we partnered with Linda Weinstein from Calling It Home to exclusive photos and updates from the 20 designers challenged to completely make over a room in just six weeks. Along with these designers, guest participants d their progress using the #oneroomchallenge hashtag and posting on their own blogs — and they totally nailed it.

1 A Cozy Dining Room

After six long weeks, the dining room is finally done and #ontheblog! The #oneroomchallenge is always fun yet exhausting! I think the next few months, we'll focus more on having people over and enjoying this space as opposed to starting a new space. But first, I think a little relaxing is in order. #currenthomeview

Nothing warms up a room quicker than plaid wallpaper. We love how the gold accents on the light fixture add just a touch of glam to the rustic room.

2 A Pretty-in-Pink Office

Happy #oneroomchallenge reveal day! Head to the blog for all the details! #myhousebeautiful @housebeautiful @oneroomchallenge http://liketk.it/2pzGa #liketkit @liketoknow.it

Try not to be struck by inspiration in this pink palace of an office. The white walls help make the colorful room feel big, spacious, and the ultimate productive retreat.

3 A Playful Kitchen

This is the moment we have all been waiting for: FINAL REVEAL @oneroomchallenge & this kitchen is done! The transformation is truly night and day and I so want to live here! Big thank you to @callingithome for hosting such inspiring and supportive event w/ @housebeautiful. Can't wait until spring 2017! #ORC #oneroomchallenge #housebeautiful #designmazestyle | 🔗 in Profile | 📷: @stephanibuchmanphoto

Pops of color in the form of wall art and color-blocked rugs keep this kitchen from feeling too traditional. Even better: The accessories can be swapped in and out for a super easy refresh.

4 A Statement-Making Bedroom

A post d by Jennifer ✨ Decor Gold Designs (@decorgold) on

This designer reveals how you can incorporate your favorite wallpaper (even if it's super busy) in your bedroom, but still keep it serene, with a statement wall.

5 A Gem-Toned Living Room

It's about 35 degrees outside this morning and all I'd like to do is curl up on this sofa with a good movie, a soft blanket and the smell of @carolinagirlcooks cookies. #oneroomchallenge @oneroomchallenge @callingithome @housebeautiful #orc

A post d by Whitney McGregor (@whitneymcgregor) on

This room proves you don't need to play it safe with a neutral sofa. Here, a deep navy blue piece looks stunning against deep green walls.

6 A Vibrant Laundry Room

It's here! Join me ✨ON THE BLOG✨ this morning for a full reveal of the laundry room!👏🏻 All sources have direct links in this post. Thank you to @mkwallpapers (brick) @spoonflower (floral) @lexmodfurniture (light) @rugs_usa (rug) @homegoods (bench, pillow) @homedepot (floor & paint) @jillrosenwald (vase) And thank you to Linda @callingithome and @housebeautiful for hosting this event!

One way to make laundry day more bearable? Give your space a colorful and cheerful makeover, like this blogger did.

7 A Thoughtful Kitchen

#oneroomchallenge reveal is up on the blog. (Link in profile.) Let me know your thoughts. @housebeautiful #myhousebeautiful #vanessafrancisdesign #brightwhitewednesday #smmakelifebeautiful #imaremodelaholic #whitekitchen #kitchendesign 📷 @ashleycapp #snowyibiza #mymetrie #interiorfinishings #hbloveskitchens

A post d by Vanessa Francis (@decorhappy) on

If you're thinking about adding open shelving to your kitchen, it's important to plan out what's going to sit on it. Here, the kitchen island is painted a deeper shade of this blogger's go-to dinner plates.

8 A Dramatic Bedroom

It's officially done and officially on the blog-- including room details like product links and paint colors! Bed from @hayneedle 📷: @lindsay_salazar_photography #OneRoomChallenge @housebeautiful @callingithome #liketkit @liketoknow.it http://liketk.it/2pzPA #liketkithome #housebeautiful #hayneedle #brooklinen #duerdens #makehomeyours #myhomegoods #hayneedlehome

A post d by Mollie @designlovesdetail (@designlovesdetail) on

High ceilings ask for a statement-making light fixture and a dramatic bed frame, both of which this blogger clearly knows. But that gorgeous rug keeps all attention at ground level.

9 A Cheerful Work Place

What a productive Monday here at the new House Plus Love @oneroomchallenge office!! We are working on several new projects that I'll be sharing more with you soon!! I also put together a blog schedule to keep the HPL blog train rolling!! Coming up this Thursday is the first post in my deck redesign series! Why not transform another space over here! And the AFTER is so good!! Stay tuned! 🏠+💖 #houselove #oneroomchallenge (📸by Stuart Sox)

A post d by House+Love | Brittany Fleming (@houselove) on

The combination of gold-spotted walls with gold accent pieces (we see you, lamps and curtain rod) makes this office feel youthful, vibrant, and ready to inspire.

10 A Functional She Shed

Another view of my insanely fun and quirky backyard shed makeover for the #oneroomchallenge ! This shed was dark and dreary and home to many a mouse. Not anymore!! Head over to the blog for all the reveal photos! (Clickable link in my IG profile.) #shedstravaganza

A post d by Charlotte Smith (@atcharlotteshouse) on

What to do with a backyard shed without a purpose? Paint everything white, add a graphic rug, and wait for the inspiration to start flowing.

11 A Feminine Bedroom

It's reveal day for our #oneroomchallenge Romantic Master Retreat! I'm super exhausted but also very excited! Head over to the blog to check it all out! Link in profile. @callingithome @oneroomchallenge @housebeautiful @hyggeandwest

A post d by MALLORY TREECE INTERIORS (@gingerjarstyle) on

This romantic bedroom is clearly all about the headboard. It pops against statement wallpaper thanks to its sheer height and unique shape.

12 A Simple Living Room

It's #oneroomchallenge time. After months of searching and sourcing, project #mildredmanor is complete! I had so much fun styling this space & working with my clients was a dream. Now I just need to find a way to move in. Check out the full reveal on my blog today. Oh, and tap for sources 😊 📷 by @andreea.muscurel . . . #orc #beforeandafter #livingroomdecor #livingroom #makeover #loveonsunday #french #modern #moroccan #interiorstyling #interiors #spaces #interiorstylist #homewithrue #interiorstruly #sodomino #housebeautiful #cdnblogsquad

A post d by Amy Carrillo (@amy_loveonsunday) on

Metal furnishings, soft leather, and wood accents only mean one thing: Mid-century modern. This blogger made the most of white walls with the help of show-stealing pieces.

13 A Dream-Come-True Bedroom

It's reveal day, y'all! This #oneroomchallenge for Lola's room has been both fun and challenging, and I'm excited to finally the finished room! Thanks for following the progress & giving me the encouragement to keep going- especially on that mural!

This blogger gave her daughter a bedroom made for playing pretend, thanks to a mural backdrop that could be the forest outside of a castle or wherever she may dream up.

14 A Supremely Sweet Bedroom

It is REVEAL day today! We have come to the end of the #oneroomchallenge and we are sharing all the details of our Master Bedroom transformation on the blog + YouTube! 📷@clarkylaura

A post d by Christine | 📍Toronto Lifestyle (@amidst.the.chaos) on

The pink polka dot bedding and furry pink throw pillows really say it all: This bedroom is all about embracing your girly side and owning it.

15 A Lively Dining Room

Had to another look at our One Room Challenge room reveal. I'm so happy with how these thrift store chairs turned out after stripping 7 coats of paint off and recovering the seats in that pretty fabric. I also forgot to mention on my other post that the ocean art is from our print shop - Rosemary beach collection) - www.ccandmike.com/prints-shop). You can read more about our $500 breakfast nook on a budget and see the entire room reveal over on the blog (link in profile). Happy weekend everyone! We are heading to Stillwater to cheer on our Pokes so I'm sure to be posting over on stories from the game !! 😜😘🏈🏈🏈 Hope you all have a wonderful day with the ones you love!

This blogger knows all it takes is a graphic rug and colorful seat cushions to make an otherwise totally bare room feel full of life.
