Fall 2020 One Room Challenge™ Reveal

Welcome back for our favorite time of year – the start of the One Room Challenge™! To celebrate the launch of the spring season, we’re revealing the six stunning bathroom transformations that took place last fall. Get ready to feast your eyes on some truly incredible spaces that were completed in just eight weeks!

Brooke Pavel

We’re starting off strong with this whimsical boho bathroom designed by Brooke Pavel. When Brooke and her family moved into their modular home, the primary bath was pretty bleak with no flooring and dated fixtures, so she decided to completely gut it and create a brand new space that felt inspiring and cozy. The natural wood details, gold accents, and light color palette make this bathroom an absolute dream!

Brooke decided on the Picket Florencia Super Bianco for both her walls and shower surround. The elongated hex shape brings a cool, refreshing element to the space.

We are blown away by this vanity before and after! The black-rimmed mirrors create a gorgeous point of contrast against the space’s creamy tones.

Tiled from top to bottom, this shower is a game-changer when it comes to getting a spa-like experience at home! We love the blend of hex and picket tiles throughout – a natural color scheme allows for a lot more freedom when it comes to combining unique shapes and styles!

Zig & Co.

Next, we go bold with color and pattern in this exciting bathroom renovation by Zig & Co. Courtney decided to keep the bathroom’s original vanity, which was custom-made by her husband years prior. It just needed a splash of sunny yellow paint, a few trim pieces, and a fun butterfly inset to really come to life in the new space!

This challenge I was inspired by color. I love to mix bold colors and patterns with a touch of whimsy.


While the entire room was designed around the unique butterfly wallpaper, Courtney didn’t want the small space to feel too overpowered by it, so she incorporated a 5 ft. board-and-batten wall into the design for some balance.

Originally, Courtney hadn’t planned on updating the flooring, but when she was presented with the Cloth Black and White tile, she knew it was perfect for the space. The classic black-and-white color palette effortlessly grounds the rest of the space, plus it accentuates the fabulous black freestanding tub!

This space proves a mix of bold colors and patterns can be pulled together in a cohesive, breathtaking design!

Effortless Style Interiors

Camila of Effortless Style Interiors brings us another exciting, colorful bathroom transformation, this time with some lighter pastels. While in the process of completely renovating her new home, Camila decided the main bathroom on her second floor would be the perfect contender for the One Room Challenge™.

[I focused] on bringing in an amazing shade of yellow with the help of The Tile Shop and their Color Market collection. The Lima da Persia colorway is a perfect citron yellow/green and I’m so happy I decided to go for it!


She decided to incorporate two shower niches into her new space so that she and her husband, Jon, could use one for their belongings, while leaving the second one open for their two sons to share.

We love a bold wallpaper moment and this bathroom definitely doesn’t disappoint! The Ava with Victoria Mosaic flooring offers just the right amount of balance with a neutral color scheme and geometric pattern.

Plot Twist Design

When Kelly of Plot Twist Design moved into her new home, the entire place had been completely updated. While the powder bathroom was functional, she wanted to elevate the space with a little more style and drama.

While planning the updated design, she knew she wanted black flooring, but was faced with making the decision between marble or man-made.

The Black Marquina Polished Marble tile by The Tile Shop won hands down. While marble will require a little more attention, the shine and natural veins are unmatched. Also, smaller spaces with less traffic can [withstand] marble with much less fuss.

We absolutely adore the printed wallpaper Kelly chose for this space – while soft and neutral, it brings a fun element of character and looks stunning paired with the bathroom’s gold hardware!

Domicile 37

The final reveal of the Fall One Room Challenge™ is this moody, French gothic-inspired primary bathroom. Determined to keep the vanity, countertops, and mirror, Jessica of Domicile 37 had a specific vision for the space, which had last been updated in 1990. However, she knew the bathroom needed some major demoing, starting with the removal of the massive jacuzzi-style bathtub.

While the original plan was a warm, vintage-style design using the Macchia Vecchia tile, Jessica ended up pivoting to Invisible Grey, which she ended up loving even more!

The Invisible Grey used on the walls throughout gives the bathroom an especially lavish, luxurious feel.

I wanted a cohesive look to this space and I wanted the tile to make sense and be aesthetically purposeful.

Jessica found a number of brass and antique pieces to add to the decor in the space, giving it a moody, dramatic feel.
