WELCOME BACK, design divas and daring decorators, to the electrifying world of Foster Decor's ORC adventure! We've hit the halfway mark, and let me tell you, it's been a wild ride to get here.

As we navigate through the TWISTS and TURNS of this challenge, one thing remains constant - expect the unexpected. Like a true interior design warrior, I've embraced the changes and hurdles that come with every ORC project like a ninja. 🐱‍👤

It's all part of the journey to CREATING something truly insta-worthy. Alright, there have been some twists and turns, true story. I won't deny the changes, but my peers who have participated warn me to expect the unexpected, like most interior design projects - let's be REAL.🌟

Blank Canvas, Bold Choices

With the room STRIPPED down to its bare bones, we now have a fresh canvas to unleash our wildest design dreams. A trip to Home Depot turned into a color EXTRAVAGANZA as I veered away from the light and airy peach fuzz vibes I had planned.🤘

Dark, rich hues called out to me, begging to add DRAMA and depth to the space. So... uhh, remember how I was supposed to stick with the light and airy peach fuzz vibes? Yeaaaah, that did not happen. 😝

Stephanie's Dark Side Influence

Stephanie and I share a love for darker colors, this is true - we know this. The allure of those emerald greens and captivating blues were IRRESTIBLE. I mean adding pops of color that speak to my soul - its a MUST.✨

Sometimes you just have to SURRENDER to what feels right, even if it means doing a complete 180... eh heh heh. HEY Stephanie wanted me to come to the dark side. Literally. Like a siren calling. I gave in. 🧜‍♀️

Playing with Paint: Finding Perfection🎉

After bringing home a plethora of paint samples (way way WAY more than I am sharing here), I DOVE into experimenting with color combinations until I found that chef's kiss perfection. 👏

More blue, more green - the kitchen demanded boldness and contrast, and who am I to deny its wishes? So I brought home a TON of samples and played with color combinations until it felt -jusssst right.💋

Countertop Transformations and Cabinet Revelations

Stephanie's countertop paint recommendation was a game-changer though that is STILL light and airy thank GAWD. Now we can banish that outdated 80s speckled laminate look for good. It's time to embrace solid colors for a sleek finish, I bid farewell to wood laminate in favor of a more modern aesthetic since that laminate look that is waaaay not cute.😛

The Final Touches: Prepping for Paint Magic

ARMED with Esmeralda green for the bottom cabinets and a daring choice of Wild Pansy for an unexpected twist on all cabinets, I geared up for the next phase of transformation.💡

Painter's tape in hand, newspaper at the ready - it was time to DIVE into the messy yet magical world of painting countertops and walls. Welp, back home I go to take a break and start prepping the countertops and walls with painter's tape and newspaper. It's gonna get MESSY up in here...🧨

Unleashing Creativity: From Chaos to Colorful Harmony

I can’t wait for my brush to FINALLY hit those bare walls and add in a symphony of hues. It’s too naked up in here. It’ll be so exciting to see the room begin its wild transformation from chaos to colorful harmony.💣

Each stroke of paint will bring us closer to realizing our MAXIMALIST vision - a space that exudes personality, flair, and a touch of daring creativity. Woop Woop. 🎁
