Oh, October, what great treasures you bring: colorful leaves, crisp autumn air, our favorite baked goodies back in the oven — and The One Room Challenge returns again. Kicking off its 11th season today, the six-week challenge showcases 20 design bloggers as they set their sights on completely making over a space (or for some folks, multiple spaces).
In the past, we've seem some epic bedrooms, living rooms, nurseries and even entire kitchens transformed and spied countless ideas to steal after scanning the always-active Instagram hashtag #OneRoomChallenge.
We're excited to partner again with host and blogger, Linda at Calling It Home, who spearheads this celebration of home style twice a year. (Catch up on Spring 2016's action here.) Throughout the challenge, we'll be checking in with progress and can't wait to the reveals at the end.
In the meantime, keep tabs on what's in the works by following the 20 official participants, who are sharing progress updates every Wednesday:
