Home Away From Home – Guest Room Update
When Julie asked me to help get her house in order before the holidays, I was really excited! The master bathroom & kitchen were recently remodeled and the new hardwoods are going in soon! Everything was coming together but the house just needed a few finishing touches. Since Julie and her husband will be welcoming family for Thanksgiving, I thought I would get the guest bedroom completed first.
Julie’s style is transitional/modern/eclectic so finding pieces that worked was easy. The bedroom only has an iron bed and is currently used as the “catch all” and storage space in the house. Let’s get into the details and start with the overall look of the room!
Guest Room Product Resource List
HEADBOARD: Home Shopping Network. I love this pattern and it’s graphic without being too modern and it is the jumping off point for the entire room!
BEDDING: This organic pin tucked bedding from West Elm is super soft and very chic. It can also look good folded up at the end of the bed to show off the yellow coverlet or blanket!
THROW/COVERLET: Add a coverlet between the top sheet and duvet for a pop of color or use this throw on top of the bed for the same look.
The geometric yellow and white pillow will look perfect in the accent chair and on the bed too!
NIGHT STANDS: These parsons tables from West Elm are the perfect size for the bedroom. I love the white finish but if you want to warm the room up, they have an espresso finish as well.
LAMPS: I love these yellow lamps from Lamps Plus. The color is not too YELLOW and the chrome base is good. You can find yellow lamps in many stores now so just go with what you love.
ACCENT PIECES FOR THE WALLS: These small starburst mirrors would look perfect over each nightsand and hung just over the lamps. The light will bounce off of the beads and create a sparkle!
ART: This tall piece from Sugarboo Designs has the perfect mix of colors in the room and the softness will be a good contrast to the leather accent chair!
LOUNGE CHAIR: This chair looks like a million bucks! The price is awesome (under $300 and $2 shipping!! )and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the detailing on the sides! A classic corner piece that is a bit oversized but the white will keep it visually simple.
ACCENT TABLE: Bring in a simple white accent table next to the chairs. These to paired with the yellow pillow and art will pop off of the China Blue walls! Set a small stack of colorfull books on the table for a finished look.
DRAPES: Amazon.com 96” length white velvet drapes $51.99 each panel. Any white drape will do, I love the texture of the velvet, but you can use linen or cotton too.
