One Room Challenge/HPMK - Final Week

Today's the day people! The big reveal of the space we designed for the first ever One Room Challenge/Highpoint Market edition, an all-digital event. After last week's nail-biting election, our clients have decided to dedicate this meditation space to anyone who damn well needs it! Won't he do it!
I know it's been a long six weeks so here's a reminder of where we started and links to all the previous posts: Week 1Week 2Week 3Week 4 and Week 5 
We also created a pinterest board for you to discover all the brands we used and pin away feverishly as you wish. 

We used a room in an existing client's home as a starting point for a more elaborate retreat. We even added ocean views because hello, this is a virtual design challenge and we could kinda do whatever we like! The goal was to create a complete sanctuary where no noise or interruptions are allowed, just the warmth of a fire and the soothing sounds of water inside and outside. When you’re here only positive energy is allowed. The focus is to completely disconnect, listen to meditative apps, music, pray, read - essentially, whatever soothes your soul.

So once we pulled together the design options for the space, we have it rendered which is a layered process which takes hours.  So we do some projects in house and outsource others to freelancers. 
Among the stages is this first step where the camera angles, the lights, and all the furniture, accessories and floors are entered in white. It’s easier, cleaner and faster than doing all the materials and then seeing that the lights and furniture aren't correct.

If you're a long time follower then you know my love for a well layered space. Wood, wallpaper, art, patterned rugs and pillows; statement furniture that demand attention without overpowering a space. And of course, my all-time favorite color - orange. Here's what that combination looks like.

Shout-out to all the other designers who created some bad-ass fantastical spaces. We have all bonded via a group chat where we secretly sipped wine and bourbon and wondered how/if we would ever pull this off! I think we all did.


A huge thank you to Linda Weinstein who created this challenge in 2011 with a simple goal: to finish a room in her home while challenging a group of online friends to do the same. Here we are nine years later and the event has become a global sensation. Thank you lady.
