Hello! Welcome to the new One Room Challenge™ site. We're working to integrate all things ORC related into one site where everything will be easily accessible and user friendly. Over the next several days we will continue to update the site with all you’ll need for a successful Guest Participant experience.
This Wednesday, April 4th, all twenty of the featured design influencers will reveal their room plans. Fun fact: our team is seeing most of the plans for the first time, too. Does that surprise you?
For us, the biggest surprise is on Thursdays, when we get to see everyone who's attending the party! Some of you will be joining for the first time, while others have completed several successful rounds. We’re including a quick review for those whom have asked:
You have six Thursday posts to complete your room transformation. If you want to be precise, it is actually five weeks......unless you have already started....and that's OK! Each Thursday, after you have published your room transformation update on your site, come to this site and link up your progress (a direct link to your post is required). Please do not email to ask what time it goes live (I won’t answer). It’s sometime after midnight…and if you have registered, you'll receive emails with the exact time.
Many viewers will visit you on a day other than Thursday (weekend traffic is the highest). By placing the One Room Challenge Guest Participant logo on your site and linking the logo to your room, you will be able to help guide the viewers to your One Room Challenge™ project.
1. Only link up rooms dedicated to the One Room Challenge™. The purpose of this event is to support one another in finishing a room.
2. Your post should include information about your space and must have a link back to the ORC link-up page so the readers can easily navigate through the other rooms.
3. Please be respectful of this interior design event and only have links that relate to your One Room Challenge space. Guiding the viewers away from this event, or creating a ‘friends group’ within the challenge is not in the spirit of the ORC and won’t be permitted.
4. You must display the One Room Challenge™ Guest Participant logo in each of your six weekly postings to be eligible for any of the feature opportunities.
The Spring One Room Challenge™ Guest Posting Schedule
Week 1 - April 5th

Week 3 - April 19
Week 4 - April 26
Week 5 - May 3
Week 6 - May 10 - TAH DAH
The link up is open from Thursday through Sunday at midnight of each week. Because this is new to many of you, the first week will have an extended open so everyone will have an opportunity to link their spaces to the page. There is a test link up page available for you to practice linking up a post.
If you are new to the event, you can view previous guest transformations, here.
Please register as a Guest Participant for the Spring 2018 One Room Challenge™. We will be sending emails with all sorts of helpful tips and information. Please help yourself to a newly updated ORC logo here.
It's going to be another exciting season as once again, the editorial team at House Beautiful will select two Guest Participants to be Featured Designers in the Fall 2018 event!
And, yes....these two are returning in a BIGGER way.
Thank you for checking in, and please come back soon for updates.
