The One Room Challenge™ (or ORC™) is a biannual design event held in April and October every year. It takes place entirely online (but, like, these are real homes we’re remodeling). It began as a small gathering of bloggers, designers, and friends who all looked around at their homes and realized they rarely complete projects. So they challenged themselves to dedicate six weeks to finishing one space.
That was fourteen seasons ago. Now it’s morphed into an international call for designers, DIY enthusiasts, bloggers, and social media influencers to show off their talents in home remodeling and decorating. Here’s the official explanation from the ORC™ site. Here’s a response to the questions I receive most frequently.
