We're not the least bit surprised that the 20 bloggers who participated in the spring 2017 "One Room Challenge" left us surprised and delighted. But outside of the designers who partnered with Linda Weinstein from Calling It Home were guest participants who also nailed the six week-long challenge. They d their spaces using the #OneRoomChallenge hashtag and boy, are we glad they did.

1 A Teenage Bedroom

Finally finished my daughter's room for her 18th birthday present! Since I have to "" a bedroom with my husband, I think I am living through my daughter for all things feminine 💞🌸✨.

This room, filled with millennial pink accessories, was an ultra feminine 18th birthday present for this blogger's daughter. We're convinced she loved her grown-up, but playful space.

2 A Stencil-Happy Dining Room

During the first weeks of #oneroomchallenge I was unsure if I was going to go ahead with the full wall stencil from @cuttingedgestencils but now that it's complete I'm so glad I did. Just enough interest and a whole lot cheaper than wallpaper.

The statement wall in this dining space isn't covered in wallpaper, as you might suspect. The designer created it using a stencil and paint and we're totally impressed.

3 A Bright Office

There are so many amazing #oneroomchallenge transformations this round, don't you think? In case you haven't seen it, the link to my reveal post is in my bio. Thanks for the love on the last post. ❤️ @oneroomchallenge @housebeautiful @callingithome #myhousebeautiful #beckiowensfeature #showemyourstyled #pynehollyhock #designhounds #SMmakelifebeautiful #schustagram #vanessafrancisdesign 📷 @stephanibuchmanphoto

We think Vanessa Francis totally accomplished her mission to create a functional but pretty work space. Our take? Built-ins make the tiny room feel permanent, while an inspiration wall keeps color choices on a rotating basis.

4 A Colorful Living Room

Another look at our #oneroomchallenge living room reveal with @markleydesign. Love how cozy and colorful our room is now! Finally feels like home ❤ Shop the room when you sign up with @liketoknow.it and get the room details sent straight to your inbox. http://liketk.it/2rnAn #liketkit 📷: @sophie_brendle

A post d by Lauren Foster (@lovelolablog) on

Lauren Foster describes her new space as "bohemian chic" and we totally see it. By keeping the walls white and the furnishings neutral, the bright shag rug is able to take center stage.

5 A Sweet Nursery

Coziest seat in the house riiiiight there 💗 What has been your favorite part of the nursery reveal? Was it the @wallsneedlove wallpaper? Or the @closetmaid built-in closet? Or the sweetest custom mobile from @sproutlingco? If you haven't seen the reveal yet head over to FOXYOXIE.com for aaaall the details. I seriously cannot believe I have less than 10 weeks before I meet our baby girl. 👶🏼💕 #BabyStrelkov #oneroomchallenge #StrelkovBungalow

A post d by Oksana | FOXYOXIE.com (@foxyoxie) on

For this mom-to-be, picking the nursery for her makeover challenge was a no brainer. And we bet she's glad she did: The built-in closet will keep her life organized and the custom mobile will keep her baby smiling.

6 A Vibrant Laundry Room

A little mid-weekl laundry sesh happening over here because there is ALWAYS laundry to be done. After years of a laundry room in dark basement filled with spider webs, we decided that house renos needed to include moving the laundry room upstairs, so we made it work, and now all of my laundry dreams have come true. Except the dream where I never have to do actual laundry again!! .

A post d by THALITA (@thelearnerobserver) on

Laundry day is can be drab enough. With that in mind, this blogger decided to give her room in a bright and uplifting design to make doing chores slightly more bearable. 

7 A Bold Bedroom

This room definitely forced me out of my comfort zone. Or maybe I just gave myself permission to try something crazy. Either way, I couldn't be more thrilled with how it all turned out! I definitely hope that there is more bold wallpaper in my future. #design #decor #interiordesign #beautifulinteriors #housebeautiful #bhg #southernliving #traditionalhome #stunningdecor #decorateyourhouse #beautifulinteriors #makehomeyours #interiordetails #interiordesigner #betterhomesandgardens #interiordesignideas #homedecoration #mybhg #myhousebeautiful #interiordecoration #interiorinspo #homestyle #designinteriores #inspire_me_home_decor #homedetails #interiordecorating #decorating

This guest bedroom has a, well, awkward shape to it. So Brenna Morgan

8 A Happy Entryway

It's finally #OneRoomChallenge reveal week!!! I can't get over how much I love this wallpaper from @wallsneedlove and live edge bench from @rockler_woodworking. Have you gotten a chance to look through all the reveals?! I just want to quit all responsibilities and spend the day swooning over all of them. . . . #MyHouseBeautiful #OneRoomChallenge #myboldhues #myrichandmoodyhome #currenthomeview #mudroom #modernmudroom #wallpaper #ad

A post d by Jess McGurn (@brightgreendoor) on

If you want a smile on your face every time you get home, all you need is to hang seriously joyful wallpaper near your front door, as proven here. 

9 A Brave Kids' Room

Can we talk a bit about the curtains from my #oneroomchallenge space? They are from @worldmarket - I almost used blush pink curtains (that I already had on hand) but I thought they did not add interest to the space so I took a trip to WM and checked out what they had in stock. I was torn between the orange ones (used in my vision board) and this Rust red color. I ended up going with the rust and I have no regrets, it adds that pop of color and it ties in so well with the wall color and wallpaper. #myboldhues #sponsored #discoverworldmarket . . . #vogueliving #bhghome #traditionalhome #myhousebeautiful #hgtv #hgtvdesign #sodomino #mydomaine #apartmenttherapy #abmathome #dslooking #interiors #societyofdesign #myoklstyle #showEmyourSTYLED #SMmalelifebeautiful #designsponge #finditstyleit #foundandforged #currentdesignsituation #eclecticdecor #pocketofmyhome #myeclecticmix #myhomevibe #curblylovewhereyoulive

A post d by Domicile37 (@domicile37) on

This blogger was inspired by a vintage, eclectic garden for her daughters' bedroom (there are two beds in this space!). Instead of sticking with expected colors (like pink or purple) she went with a wallpaper filled with oranges, blues and greens.

10 A Double Purpose Room

Hello Tuesday! I am so excited about my @oneroomchallenge makeover! A completely different than its previous look and I am a fan! More #oneroomchallenge hosted by @callingithome @housebeautiful on the blog | 🔗 in Profile |

A post d by Tim Lam (@designmaze_tim) on

Even though this space used to serve as a dining room, it now doubles as an office by day. That's why the designer stuck with bright whites and delicate pastels that feel awake and alive.

11 A Global Boho Kids' Bedroom

One more from my #oneroomchallenge for #onequaintspace (thanks for the tag @onequaintzebra), #myeclecticmix and #howyouhome (hosts tagged) - a kid's space is always fun, right? ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #mykidsdigs #howwedwell #projectjunior #mywestelm #myhomevibe #ikeaatmine #anthropologie #amaraliving #apartmenttherapy #sodomino #stylemyflat #niftynest #interiordesign #interiorinspiration #homedecor #instahome #designblogger #interiorstyling #currentdesignsituation #currenthomeview #interior4all #interiorwarrior

A post d by Lizzie Ravn (@emmersonand15th) on

Even though this Lizzy Ravn rents her home, which limits her ability to paint and install, you wouldn't know it from the reveal. She took inspiration from the rug to create the fun color palette. 

12 A Lake House Living Room

The reveal of my #oneroomchallenge lake house living room is live! I'm still waiting on a few things to arrive but overall the room has come together beautifully. Big thanks to @hhousefurn @cryptonfabric @annieselke @serenaandlily @minted for helping me make it happen! (And thanks to @oneroomchallenge and @housebeautiful for hosting) #mydad #mydaughter #dadanddaughter #childhood #dadandsontime #family #happybirthday #happyfamily #familyday #happymom #mymom #gang_family #dadandson #mom #familytime #familyfun

A post d by Unlimited Happy Life (@unlimitedhappy) on

Since this space is located near water, the blogger gave it a touch of nautical inspiration (like navy blue and stripes), but paired it with modern furnishings to keep the room from feeling too stuffy and traditional.

13 A Cozy Living Room

It's here!! The reveal of the #oneroomchallenge is now on the blog! Check. It. Out. All of the projects and sources are included. Link in profile!

A post d by Ashley @ The Gold Hive (@ashleykgoldman) on

This room is designed to unwind in, hence the palette of deep blues, blacks and greens, with pops of white that set a relaxing tone. The gray area rug and leather ottoman prevent the space from feeling small and cramped.

14 A Perfectly Pink Bedroom

We had a couple late nights, and family members chipping in to get everything done, but made it to week 6 of the @oneroomchallenge 🎉🎉 It feels so good to (mostly) have this room checked off our list of house renos! Despite being the first thing ordered, the little gold bees that were going to go on ceiling still have not arrived. It's a good thing the client for this project was easy going, and was just happy to see some pink in the room 😉 The full reveal is up on the blog! #cjoneroomchallenge #cjcentralhome @housebeautiful @callingithome

A post d by Coco & Jack (@coco.and.jack) on

The goal with this space was to create a feminine room for a little girl that she could grow up in over time. The blogger even got crafty and incorporated a few IKEA hacks (like the bookshelf under the window) into the space.

15 A Peaceful Escape

Redoing your space doesn't have to be extraordinarily expensive! Case in point, our bedroom makeover. Head to the blog to see how I updated this room on a budget!

A post d by NATASHA HABERMANN STUDIO (@natasha_habermann) on

Natasha Habermann wanted to give her bedroom a British colonial-inspired look, which is why she added a canopy bed and an oversized mural to create a focal point in the room.
