It's been awhile since I posted photos of my house, so here you go - guest room 1. In case you missed the previous room reveals, you can catch up here: office, kitchen, bathroom, and dining room.
We were lucky enough to find a four bedroom house, so we turned one into the office, and currently we have two guest rooms. This one looks a bit like a bed and breakfast.
The walls are the original color from the previous home owner, they are a bit peachy-pink. Or as the Hubby likes to say "flesh-toned". As you might have guessed, he is not a fan. I can't decide what color I want to paint everything, so for now, it stays. The quilted coverlet and white pillows are from Target, and the patterned Euro pillow was a gift from my Aunt Peg.
Here's a shot of the night stands. The two end tables are from Ikea, and the clock is from Pottery Barn several years ago. I simply adore the lamps, they were a great Homegoods find! Remember how I said I loved Homegoods? Well my Aunt Hunna gave me a housewarming gift card to Homegoods, and I got a killer deal on matching crystal end table lamps. They are too fantastic for words. Sorry about the glare, I should have turned off the flash, but the room was a bit dark.
This desk was actually a great find from the Christmas Tree Shops, and it's where I write all my thank you notes. With this guest bedroom on the second floor, and all our other living space are on the first floor, I need an excuse every now and again to actually use our upper floor. I clearly don't love the chair that we have here, but it's free, so it works. One day I will replace it. I also love the built-in bookshelf to the right, it's where I keep all my girly books not suitable for our more used spaces.
The other corner has a slip covered chair. I love when bedrooms have a comfy chair, I think it make the whole room more inviting. This is also where the Hubby practices his guitar. The red throw blanket is from Target, as well as the table lamp and shade. The heart pillow was a gift from my mom a few years back. The shades were from Home Depot and are also a few years old. The Hubby and I have been carting them around from the last few apartments. I really like how they give this room a bit more texture and color.
One thing I like about Cape-style homes are the angled room lines. Granted, it can often limit your actual living space, but it does make for some really interesting rooms. I love how our doors are cut to match! The wall detail, "board and batten," was there when we moved into the house, but we added board-and-batten detail to our living room. So once I reveal that room, I will update more about that project and a bit of how-to.
So thanks for taking a tour with me! If you know what color I should paint this room, let me know!
