Welcome back to Week 4 of the One Room Challenge!  Everything in my rooms for this challenge is either in slooow, but sure, progress.....OR is waiting in line for its particular turn in the transformation.  It feels like I am fairly on track, but I fear a last batch of delays or setbacks is lurking - this creates a certain bit of artistic tension!

Modern History Monday - American Houses * Architectural Style Primer

Last week on "Modern History Monday" I wrote about the Colonial house and how it created a sense of "Home".  Regardless of what type or style of "home" that you live in, the "Colonial" house seems to distill the house form down to the basics.

Modern History Monday - The House that says "Home"

I once read somewhere that the center entry, classic, "Colonial" house building style is the essential image of a house as drawn by all of us (in America at least) as a child.  I love how there is almost always a shining or smiling sun as well as a family image in most pictures.

I'm glad that you decided to come back and see how we are doing, and apologies for posting at the last minute this week for the project!  If, for any reason you have just found my conversations, I challenged myself to work on the Fall 2015 One Room Challenge - where designers and design lovers of every kind work on one room for 6 weeks and write about the project.  The whole concept was started by Linda of Calling it Home.com and has grown to include over 100 participants around the country (around the world, really, as there have been participants in England and Australia also!)  Its easy to get hooked, so be sure and check out the Main Affair as well as the other Guest participants!

One Room Challenge-Is It Really Week 4?

Welcome back to the One Room Challenge- We've made it to Week 4 and I am really doing pretty well with getting everything done by the deadline, but there are so many last minute things to finalize...its getting SERIOUS!  The most time consuming elements are really the finishing touches, the last few details that take a room from good to great - those items have taken a back seat to the major components.  That's when a deadline starts to make me anxious, so count me among those who are starting to get a little TENSE!
