We spent most of this weekend trying to pry wallpaper off of un-primed drywall in the basement. (Oh what fun and not very photograph worthy, since it’s SLOW going!) So I thought I’d updated you on what direction I’m planning to take the guest room in.
We had to put our guest room together very quickly, as our first guest arrived less than 2 weeks after we closed on the house. So we threw some clean bedding (the navy stripe West Elm duvet) on the bed, and hung the bright and bold curtains from our master bedroom in the previous house since the blinds leave much to be desired.
We haven’t done a ton since then, despite having two additional sets of guests over the holidays, but now with the threat of parents coming to visit sometime soon, I thought it was time to shift my attention back to this room!
During our Ikea trip (when things kept jumping into our cart) one of these cute lady bug pillows also followed us home! I like that it matches the colors in the room (and it reminds me of the outdoor lady bug pillow I wish I had grabbed last year!
It’s cute, not creepy, right?
I finally moved the pharmacy style lamps from our bedroom to the guest room and I love them in here!
Oh and did you spot the art propped on the headboard? They’re cute travel prints of London, New York, and Paris (also from Ikea, but I can’t find them on the website). I’ve been pinning travel prints for a while, and couldn’t believe when I happened on this set! Although now Andy and I will need to visit Paris together!
Unfortunately, I don’t have much more to show you, but this is the direction I’m planning to go in. I think the first step is to pick a wall color. I sort of want to try a blue/green color again, but am a little traumatized after trying to pick colors for the living room.
Do you have a favorite soft shade of blue or green?
