Spring 2020 One Room Challenge™ Introductions Part 2

Collage of all headshots.

We’re back with the second round of introductions for the Spring 2020 One Room Challenge™ (ORC). While this widely anticipated event happens biannually every April and October, due to COVID-19, the start date was pushed to May 6. Each round, twenty design influencers are selected to take the challenge as Featured Designers and transform a space of their choosing throughout a six-week period. This season we are sponsoring 14 designers – check out our first post introducing the first seven designers here.

Deeply Southern Home

Leslie’s style is rooted in her southern upbringing. While her style is welcoming, relaxed and traditional by nature she is constantly pushing her designs with color and a fresh interpretation of classic interiors. She and her husband moved to Alabama 6 years ago and have renovated 2 homes in that time. Recently, her family downsized to a new construction home on a small lake lot. Her goal is to add old world charm and character to this builder home through strategic DIY projects and the addition of timeless finishes.
