I felt like it was only appropriate to share a pretty pink room with you on this day of love! (Part of me is still shocked that I got away with pink in my house of all boys, but I guess since it’s just the guest room and doesn’t affect their day-to-day lives, they decided to indulge me!)
We basically took our bedroom pieces from our last house (minus the headboard), stuck them in here, and left it like that for a long time. But every once in a while I would get the itch to spruce up this space a little bit, so after months of adding a piece here and changing a little something there, this is what we ended up with… It’s amazing what a difference a series of small changes over time can make! They live about an hour and a half from us, but they come visit a lot, so they usually end up sleeping here a few times per month.
I didn’t want our guests to feel exposed to the whole world, so we bought some blackout shades for the windows and framed them in with inexpensive curtains. Eventually these windows will be framed in the same craftsman style that we used in our living room. We made this cute bench when we lived at our last house, and it was the perfect size to be a “luggage rack substitute” for a guest room, so it landed in here.
I found the woven basket at TJ Maxx one day and knew it would be a great addition to this space, holding an extra blanket and some pillows in case our guests need them.
The narrow frame was a Michael’s find from several months ago. The duvet cover played a big role in setting the tone for the room.
There’s not a ton of space at the foot of the bed, so it couldn’t be anything very deep, but I still wanted it to flow nicely with the feel of the rest of the room. 🙂 The color is Behr Marquee Silver City— my favorite gray! I had originally purchased these side tables to use as nightstands in our master bedroom, and I love them, but we decided that something with a drawer would be better for everyday use in our bedroom, so I moved these into the guest room, and they matched the look I was going for in the space!
This room has a weird little bump out that I wasn’t quite sure what to do with, but the size ended up working well for a high dresser.
I made the “Stay Awhile” sign at a group painting class I went to with some friends, and it only seemed appropriate for a guest room! I originally made this large scale canvas art to fill a big wall in our living room.
When we put up the board and batten, it didn’t look right anymore, so I moved them up here. My favorite piece of art in the room is the “Orchard” sign above the bed. I usually have a general idea in mind for the space, but then I just kind of wait until I find a piece– like the duvet cover– that jumps out at me and go from there.
