Interior Design Bingo

With the October Photo Challenge coming to a close in a few days I decided to invent a challenge for November to help me jump start my interior design blogging skills, as a gear up to start my portfolio blog for school. With these 30 interior design ideas to keep in mind during the month of November, I hope it will inspire me in school and in other design projects.

Unlike the photo challenges, I’ve decided to lay this challenge out as more of a BINGO idea, because I know finding some of these things may be more difficult. You can find a few in one day or go an whole day without finding any. Just a picture to and post them on your blog. The goal is to find all 30 by November 30th.

I hope you’ll participate with me! Please comment below if you are so I can link to your blogs on November 1st.

I thought I’d clarify a couple things since a couple of you have brought this up…
1 – Don’t worry, you’re not meant to find ALL these in your own home. It’s meant to help us become more aware of the designs in all the spaces we’re in – restaurants, shops, friend’s homes, offices etc.
2 – On Tuesday, the start of the challenge, I’ll define a few of these more “interior designy” terms. If you have something specific you’d like me to define, please tell me in the comments below :)
3 - It's not a competition, just a challenge, you have the whole month of November to get all 30. Just have fun.

Oh, sweet! I totally want to do this... let's see how many I can do after the wedding, and with a week out of November for the honeymoon ;)

I'd love to play along! I'm by no means an interior designer, so do you think you could post explaining some of the concepts? Specifically, what would I be looking for in terms of scale & mid-century modern ('50s style?). And I know I don't have all of these elements in my home (no children; no wallpaper!), so do you have suggestions on where to go to find inspiration? Can I beg, borrow, steal from more talented folks with bigger interior design budgets? Sorry for so many questions :)

I'm soooooo doing this! It's an AWESOME idea and we have been trying VERY HARD to fix up our place. This is definitely added motivation! Yay!!! :)

Ali @ His Birdie's Nest said...

@talkandsleep - I have faith in you :)

@ABC - That's a good point, I'll post a definition of some of the concepts on Tuesday, the start of the challenge. Also (and I'll add this to the post b/c you're not the only one to think this) the pictures can be found in your home and the interior of other spaces as well - restaurants, shops, friend's homes etc :)

@Sara - YAY! Thank you :)

I think I already told you I'm in. Is there a list of other bloggers I can link to who are participating? I'm really excited to do this!
