Kid’s Bathroom- Jeweled Interiors Spring 2020 One Room Challenge Wk 1
Yay!!! Today marks the beginning of the One Room Challenge and I am so stoked! This go-round I will be refreshing our kids’ bathroom. I don’t know about you, but I am in the mood for something fun, playful, and manageable. A shared children’s bathroom seems to be a perfect fit, am I right?
What is the ORC?
I want to start out with a huge thank you to Linda, from Calling it Home, for organizing this massive event, and I can only imagine the extra effort that Covid 19 has caused this season. Hats off to her and her team!
If you’ve never heard of the ORC then I’m excited to introduce you. This is an exciting interior design event with 20 Featured Designers and hundreds of other Guest Participants (like me). This is normally occurs over a 6 week period, but under the circumstances it only makes sense to tag on two extra weeks. We will all be working towards reveals on July 1st (Featured Designers) and 2nd (Challenge Participants).
In addition to the fun support and comroderie that this event evokes, Better Homes and Gardens will be the media sponsor.
It’s So Nice To Meet You
If you are new to Jeweled Interiors then you should know that I like color, an eclectic mix, and taking design risks. This will make sense when you see our kids’ bathroom plan.
We are a military family of six and after thirteen moves are feeling pretty comfortable in our Northern Virginia, Greater DC area home. Interestingly, we actually bought this house nine years ago, moved away for two assignments, and are now back “home”.
Why am I participating in an interior design event in the middle of a world wide pandemic? This is just the fun, creative distraction I need! Plus, the ORC has always proved to be such a fabulous and uplifting community. Some of my best Instagram and blogging friendships have developed as a result of the One Room Challenge.
This ain’t my first ORC rodeo! Nope, this will be my sixth!?! WHAT? I have learned and grown so much with each. Please bare with me as I show you the evolution over the last three years.

Here is the situation. We have a bathroom with nothing really wrong with it. It functions, has a neutral color scheme, and serves several of our children just fine. I haven’t been highly motivated to touch this room because so many of our other spaces have needed more immediate attention.
So aside from being boring and a tad dated, this kids’ bathroom has hidden beneath my radar for the last two years. Now that I am looking for a room that I can safely refresh without many supplies, trips to stores, or visits from construction crews, I’ve got my sites set on this little guy.
Since I am probably high risk (auto immune) for Covid 19, I don’t want to gut this room. Some of the elements will remain in place. That way I can try to work ahead a little and hope to be able to pull this off, even if I end up on a ventilator (please pray that I don’t end up on a ventilator 😬).
The Bathroom Plan
All of the products mentioned are sponsored or discounted but the opinions are 100% my own.
So, um yeah….That’s a big change. I know. I think I just wanted something totally FUN! A little jewel box of a room that makes me smile every time I walk by. The kids are being great sports. They are so use to at least one room of the house being under construction at all times.

Thanks Pamela! Luckily so far I only have celiac, and Graves (or had Graves before they removed my thyroid). I can tell you this though, I don’t want to get sick! I fear it would kick off a new disease for me. Let’s both stay healthy together!
