Welcome to the Fall 2021 One Room Challenge! For those that don't know about the ORC, it's an 8-week event that challenges participants to totally transform a space and share the entire process. They provide support, inspiration, and truly celebrate creativity. This is my first time being part of the process as a guest participant. I'm super excited to be part of this amazing community of designers, DIY enthusiasts, and other guest participants.

By the way - I'm Santeka Grigley and the content creator behind, a dynamic space where I live my life out loud as I grow my business and navigate the world as millennial Southern baddie who is travel lover, foodie, DIY chaser, and home decor obsessed! My hope is inspire people to live their life out loud as boldly and colorfully as I do.

One Room Challenge Bedroom Makeover

Now let's get to the reason why you're here! For the One Room Challenge, I will do a bedroom makeover, which has not been a priority since purchasing our home. It has fallen down the list of home projects because they are more pressing projects to complete. It is true fixer upper property.

My goal is to transform this space into serene space offering some elements represented in Transitional Style. I will zhuzh is up by incorporating textural fabrics, darker hues, and an appearance or two of farmhouse and boho style.

Next week, I will share the daring and bold newly painted room along with my mood board. I can't wait to reach the finish line and hope you will come along for the ride!

Please be sure to check out the other guest participants and their projects!
