French Country Home Foyer Make Over – “ORC” (Week 3) Design Board

We are three weeks into the Spring 2020 One Room Challenge, with only five weeks remaining before the final reveal. 

If you are new to my blog or the One Room Challenge, welcome! I am so happy to have you follow along.


The One Room Challenge™ is a biannual event every Spring and Fall and is currently in its seventeenth season. Each round, twenty design bloggers take the challenge and transform a space. Every Wednesday, the designers document their process while sharing their sources and professional advice over six weekly posts.

This season, due to the sheltering in place orders, the ORC will span eight weeks to give us all extra time to complete our spaces while staying safe at home.

The ORC has teamed up with Better Homes and Garden to bring you this highly anticipated event.



This round will complete my seventh season as a guest participant of the “ORC”. So many other talented people are also participating as guests, please check out their spaces HERE.

What Space Will be Transformed this Season of the ORC?

As I announced in week one, I will be transforming the foyer of our home. This is what our foyer looked like when we moved in three years ago.

Inspiration for my Foyer Make Over

In week two, I showed you my inspiration for the make over.

Design Board for Our Foyer Renovation

Foyer Mood Board-1When ever I am trying to design a space, I put together a mood board. Seeing all the colors on a design board helps me visualize the space better and make appropriate changes.

This is my first attempt at the board. Our plan seems to change as time goes on. What I originally thought I was going to do has since changed….and may change again as I explore other options. Fingers crossed this all goes…somewhat as planned 🙂
