We were disappointed to see a large ‘big box’ store behave this way. The Influencer marketplace is constantly being challenged by brands to justify itself as a viable business worthy of respect and compensation. When the design community unites, change happens.

We want to be certain every person linking-up on Thursdays as a Guest Participant understands the eligibility requirements. The following ORC rule applies to both Featured Designers and Guest Participants:

*You may only link up and participate with rooms dedicated solely to the ORC.

This means two things. First, a room that has been shared, is being shared, or will be shared as part of another event cannot be linked to the One Room Challenge™. Second, if you are participating, judging, or representing another event during the six weeks of the ORC, you may not link up to the ORC.


We're very proud of both the community and the event we've built over the last seven years. The internet continues to reward and celebrate originality.  The One Room Challenge™ has worked with countless companies who have been incredibly supportive, professional, and respectful of both the ORC and its designers.

We’re looking forward to having you join us on Thursdays!


One Room Challenge® Mission Statement

The One Room Challenge™ will provide participants with a supportive, enthusiastic forum in which to share the process of transforming a room. The ORC is not a competition, but rather a celebration of creativity, inspiration, and original ideas. Welcome!
