For those of you that are new to Calling It Home's One Room Challenge, this is a 6 week challenge where bloggers select one room in their house to makeover. Each week, we reveal a preview of the progress of the room all leading up to the final reveal on week 6.
This time around, I'm going to makeover my son's bedroom. Jack is a seven year old who started sleeping in our guest bedroom rather than his own room so that he could be closer in proximity to our master bedroom. Over time, this room became his room. Now, I want to turn the guest room into his own space. There are a few main objectives in this makeover.

4. Industrial DecorI usually use an explosion of color in decorating my home. Proof here and here. However, for this makeover, I want to try to stick to neutral tones and select one color for a pop. I envision a Restoration Hardware type feel. Something that uses industrial type decor but in a child-friendly way.

I can see using vintage/thrift and new furniture in this room. This week, I'll be trying to narrow down the type of beds to put into the room. I think that will drive the rest of the look in the space.
Check back next week to see progress. I'll also reveal a photo of the room I'm working with.
Also, the following exceptional designers are participating in the ORC. I encourage you to hop on over the Calling It Home to view the progress of their rooms. It's breath-taking what designers can pull together in 6 week's time.
