If you’re here for the first time, welcome! I’m Jana Bek, an interior designer with an emerging lifestyle line of home décortextiles, & lighting. I have a love for bright colors, bold prints, and designing spaces & home décor that help transport you to your dream destination.

I’m so excited to be participating in my fourth season of One Room Challenge, this go-around I’m making over our living room.

Week I

Week II

Week III

Woof – it’s only been a week since my last update?! It feels like a month! Between traveling to High Point this weekend (I saw so much goodness!) & moving out of our Atlanta apartment yesterday, very little progress has been made on our living room design!

That said, the little progress makes me very happy – I came home to the gorgeous mix of pillows from the talented ladies of Little Design Co. and Arianna Belle that I mentioned last week.

 Also, these petite ottomans greeted me; the photos do them little justice, Liven Up Design made my upholstery dreams come true!

 With the stress of moving, a very happy surprise was that my friend, Olga Naiman, will be in town for my ORC reveal. Olga is a wickedly talented stylist & her volunteering to round out my vision is so exciting – I know she’ll take it to the next level! I met Olga when she was styling my friend Michelle Adam's home for house beautiful:


Proper praise for Olga requires a dedicated post, but I thought it would be fun to share items she choose for the space that I would have never dreamed up.

For the small wall leading into the living room, I knew I wanted a bar cart moment. I had chosen this classic cart from ATG Stores & Olga suggested a wallpaper to make the slim space pop. We landed on this graphic Belevedre option - cross your fingers the paper arrives on time as I'm ordering it today!

 With all of the newness in the space, we agreed the design needed pieces with rich textures & history – hello bone side table & gorgeous finds with a story. I would have never chosen the beautiful funky lamp & now I cannot wait to get it in the space!


As I said - little progress!

I'm in major crunch mode but I'm choosing to focus on my excitement for everything to come together & not the fact that there is way too much to do (paint, finish the cabinet DIY, hang wallpaper & window treatments, & hope everything arrives on time!)

Wish me luck, it's going to be a race to the finish!
