6 Rooms of Inspiration

Fall 2018 One Room Challenge Featured Designers | Photo credit: ORC

We are so “wowed” with the results of this year’s Fall One Room Challenge[icon name=”trademark” class=”” unprefixed_class=””] (ORC) and the AH-mazing designers we had the opportunity to work with that we’re breaking up this blog into two parts to give everyone the attention they deserve!

This was our first year as an official sponsor of the annual online design lollapalooza that has taken IG by storm. Now in its fourteenth season, this twice-yearly unique celebration of creativity, inspiration and original ideas follows 20 talented designers through a 6-week transformation of a single space, from design boards to demolition to their gorgeously executed reveals.

Select Blinds was honored to have six of this season’s featured designers (and two guest designers) include our products in their rooms.  We loved the diversity in design and style they represent, from eclectic modern mashups to a charming this-old-house Victorian vogue  ([icon name=”heart” class=”” unprefixed_class=””] that monkey wallpaper in the bathroom!!!). Here are some of the gorgeous images they shared with us. We invite you to read their blogs for all the down and dirty details  of their 6-week  transformational journey during the Fall 2018 ORC.  Enjoy!
