One Room Challenge - Week 1

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 & and a huge thanks to Linda of Calling it Home for organizing it!

My husband & I split our time between Ann Arbor, MI & Atlanta, GA & last spring I designed our Atlanta apartment for ORC as a linking participant:

This go-around I’m making over our living room. Here is where it’s at now:

My chief issue with the space is that it’s not inviting. Over the years this room has become an amalgamation of random furniture & décor – the rug is too small, the coffee & side tables blend into the rug, those chairs (which I love) are not ones you would cuddle up in to read a book or watch a movie. 

Note the cords behind the television, major eyesore!

So each Wednesday for the next 5 weeks I’ll be bringing warmth, color, and pattern to make this space cozy & cohesive. The couch & beach prints are the only items staying so it should be a total transformation!

Here’s a sneak peek at the color palette – blush pink + navy, tune in for more details next week! In the interim, you can find my scheming on Instagram & Pinterest
