Girls Bedroom – Spring 2021 One Room Challenge: Week 1

I’m so excited to share that I will be a guest participant in the Spring 2021 One Room Challenge! This is my second time as a guest participant in this biannual design event.

Classic Sneakers

These are great for when you’re on the go — whether it’s a trip to Home Depot or Home Goods it’s important to have a comfortable (and on trend) shoe.

Sunday: Bonus outfit for a day off

Babydoll Dress

It’s important to take a day off from DIY, work, or projects to just enjoy and rest. Sunday brunch, church, or time with family are some of my favorites! Why not come up with an excuse to dress up?

Ankle Strap Heels

Heels aren’t for everyone BUT they’re definitely a favorite for me. These transition well from spring into summer and into early fall.

Feed Them

Fertilize plants once a month during the growing season (typically spring to early fall). During the dormant season you might not need to fertilize or you can fertilize periodically.

Find a Resource

Find a houseplant book you love and learn from the experts. Plant books typically give tips and recommendations regarding sun, waterting, soil, etc.

Give Them a Little TLC

Don’t forget, plants are living things and they need to be treated as such. Some plants are easy going and others need a lot of attention.

  • Dust their leaves
  • Remove damaged leaves
  • Prune branches
  • Rotate them periodically
  • Repot as needed

Give Them Somewhere Nice to Live

If possible, take your plant out of the nursery pot and plant it in a new planter! Many plants come in small pots and in many cases might need to be potted in a larger planter. Whenever possible purchase planters with drainage holes and if that’s not possible, drill a hole if you can.
