Guest Room Make-Over

Our guest room has undergone quite a few changes over the years...go figure.:) But I have to say this one is my fave.  Lighter and brighter has been my recent motto so I've been busy making changes to most of the other rooms in our home, too.  The only room I'm not allowed to touch is my husband's "I Love Me Room" which still has the same paint color from when we first moved in - thirteen years ago!  Getting back to the guest room...this room has gone from yellow walls with silk cinnamon-colored curtains hanging across the back wall as well as the entire wall over the windows (making it very dark and cozy I have to say) to taupe, blues, browns and whites.

The pleated white bedding is from Bed Bath and Beyond flanked by two different lamps with the same lampshades from Big Lots - always a great bargain.  The white-washed tin tiles from Pottery Barn adds some nice texture along with the seagrass bench from TJMaxx.

Using a valance in lieu of floor length curtain helps keep the room light and airy.  I had some help from my good friend and master seamstress, Patty Mack who not only sewed this beautiful window treatment but made the headboard too!  Well, the headboard was a three-girl project and my good friend, Jennifer Lee was right there lending a hand...or two.

Every guest room should have a place for company to sit and read or write so this cozy corner is just the spot.  The French blue chair I found at TJMaxx was actually the inspiration and the room started coming together after I bought it home.  I found the Mother-of-Pearl mirror at Pier One.  The lamp on the writing table (which I had previously painted white) is very special as it was my grandmother's gas lamp turned into a wired lamp.

Because our tastes change through the years as mine certainly has, our guest room now has a lighter and brighter feel yet still cozy and comfortable.
