I am ready to call the first guest bedroom DONE. Or at least as done as I care to make it. We have much bigger plans to update rooms this summer that are actually seen on a daily basis (as opposed to an upstairs bedroom), so I'm not going overboard in the rooms upstairs. I'd like them to look nice and comfortable for guests, but I'm not really into overdecorating a space that is rarely used by the three of us that call this house home.
Here we go...
So every bit of the room is the same as it was in this post (other than the curtains).
I really like how the different fabrics play off of each other (and the way that the colors are repeated in the painting above the bed and in the lamps on the dresser).
Here is a close-up shot of the fabric for the curtains. It is that same Dwell Studio bird fabric that I love, but in a rich, cobalt-ish blue. Doesn't it just pop on the soft gray walls?
I'm also really glad we went with the larger white IKEA Hemnes dresser this time. It balances the size of the bed really well, and it lightens the room.
As you can see, we don't have any nightstands in here, but with the larger dresser holding two lamps, I'm kind of okay with that. Sometimes I tend to make rooms too busy when I add in smaller furniture. It makes the room feel more open and spacious without all of the little furniture.
A close-up of the rod. I'm slowly trying to buy into metal rods. Lowes and Home Depot are slowly discontinuing all of the black wooden rods I used to buy, so they forced my hand. I have to say, they are cheaper!
A better shot of the bedding and artwork. I found the white chevron coverlet at TJ Maxx and my mom made the pillows and the throw.
So there you have it. Our third completed room! Between this room, the dining room, and the screened porch, we are really making progress-ha! One day at a time, right?
Just for fun, I thought I'd show you the view from this guest bedroom out into the landing. We moved the zebra painting up here (love how it fills up this wall). He's big and bold, but I love him.
So, from here I am moving into the recently de-stickered guest bedroom (you can see the doorway to this room to the right of the zebra). I have some wall-patching, priming, and painting to do, as well as some curtain hemming/hanging to share. After that room is completed, I really am calling it quits upstairs--promise. Updates to come!
