A major makeover
November Beauty Favorites
Have you ever gone into something having no idea how it will turn out, only to be so surprised at how amazing it is? That was my experience with Space Off, a tv show on The Design Network. The Design Network is an in-house network of Furniture Land South, and ridiculously huge and beautiful furniture store in High Point, North Carolina.
The concept of the show Space Off is basically this: 2 design teams battle to decorate a room, but there is only one winner.
When I was initially contacted and asked if I was interested in a room makeover, I have to be honest and tell you that I was skeptical. I can be annoyingly picky (picture my mom’s eyes rolling because they are), and wasn’t sure how some designers who don’t know my style or preferences could design a room for me.
I floated the idea past my husband one evening and he basically said, “Yeah you better say yes! That sounds awesome!”
So, now that I have a beautifully decorated bedroom by professional designers, I am able to see the big, BIG difference between my uncreative minimal style and what I want my style to look like. And I love my room so much and am so thankful for the experience!
Note to self: LET THE PROFESSIONALS DO THEIR THING. IT’S WORTH IT.
So, in a nutshell here is how everything went down:
-I had a brief skype session with both design teams. I really liked both of the teams right off the bat, but since the sessions were so short I wasn’t sure if I had explained myself well in order to tell them what I liked. In hindsight, I had nothing to worry about.
-The awesome crew of Space Off came to my house and worked long hours installing both room designs. I sent David to hang with my mom for the day, and locked myself in my office for hours waiting for the big reveal. I made sure to not take a single peek when I snuck downstairs for water or snacks. It was hard to sit in the house and hear all the work without sneaking out to peek, but I managed to stay strong!
For reveal time, I had butterflies in my stomach! I had no idea what to expect on the other side of the door, and with both rooms I was so surprised to see what the designers chose.
In the end, I got to choose (and keep) one room design, and got to pick a winning team to advance to the next part of the challenge.
You’ll have to watch the episode to see who won, and see the beautiful rooms too!

I’ll be sure to share a post next week with many more details about the room design that won!
Huge, huge thank you to everyone on Space Off for letting me be a part of something so cool. You were an absolute pleasure to work with, and you have no idea what a treat it was to have a master bedroom makeover!
