ORC - Major Update, updating an additional room!

If you’re here for the first time, welcome! I’m Jana Bek, an Ann Arbor based 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 missed the last two One Room Challenge updates, both as a result of a very inspiring Zephyr designer retreat I attended in San Francisco in early October. I can’t wait to tell you about it in upcoming post! I returned even more excited about my ORC and decided to update the guest room and my stepson’s room.

Neither of the spaces are offensive but, as I mentioned last week, the guest room has been the landing ground for misfit furniture and decor through the years. Then, Orion’s is in need of updating.

Here’s the guest room again:


 Here’s Orion’s, 17, room:


In reworking my ORC, it made more sense to have Orion’s be the California, street- style inspired room, and the guest room to be a more zen retreat.

I thought it’d be fun to download you with how I’m now using the pieces originally planned for the guest room, into both of the spaces, how I’m getting creative, and even shopping our home to make these designs come together.

 I’ve long been in love with these two Schumacher prints, originally for the guest room, and they will now be split between the two spaces.

I’m going to reupholster Orion’s headboard in the taupe Nuba, and make throw pillows in the mirage Moncorvo for the guest room.

These fun, skater inspired artworks by Artfully Walls & Kristi Kohut will head to Orion’s room.

A new GradinRoad headboard will remain in the guest room. I know the low profile will make the room feel larger and bring a hygge feeling to the space.

The guest room needed a huge beautiful rug to make it inviting, I’ve used the Frontgate Destin rug for many design clients, knew it would be the perfect fit:

There are so many other design decisions to be made, that I have to make now, to ensure each rooms gets completed on time! I’m choosing to have fun with the process while juggling Jana Bek Design, rather than getting stressed! Wish me luck and I hope you’ll come back next week for my progress updates!

Come back next Wednesday for updates, and In the interim, you can find my scheming on Instagram & pinterest.
