Maddie G Designs - Fall 2016 One Room Challenge - Final Reveal

Thanks for joining for the final reveal of my One Room Challenge™ Blue and White Guest Bedroom. I am so happy that this day is finally here and truly thank Linda from Calling it Home and media partner, House Beautiful, for the push and support to get this room done!

If you are just finding me today I am Susie Isaac, a Dallas based wife, mom, volunteer, interior decorator and online shop owner. In 2008, I quit a job in finance to stay at home with my now 8 year old, and started blogging over at Maddie G Designs as an outlet and a hobby that coincided with the purchase of a new home back in Virginia. Today, my hobby has become an increasingly less part-time business where I sell home decor items here in my online store, as well as help consumers not working with a designer source "trade only" goods and services. I also take on a limited number of local Dallas design and eDesign clients.


This was my fourth One Room Challenge, having done the playroom in our house and my office in an official participant capacity and my son Harry's room and our family room as a linking participant. This challenge might be my favorite one to date. So, without any further words, I'll let the photos speak for themselves.

Here is the "before" of the guest room in our 1929 era home in Dallas. Rather drab and depressing.

And here is the room today, with the addition of shiplap, new bedding and furniture and a gallery wall featuring framed Audubon prints.
