You may remember that we have been renovating/refreshing our home since we moved in late last summer. Today I am sharing our guest bedroom. It is one of my favorite rooms in our home. I love the peaceful color - Sherwin Williams Rainwashed. We added crown molding to add character to the room. Our guestroom is usually the only "prissy" room in the house. I live in a house of boys so "girly" is not something I get to do very often (which may explain why I adore clothes, jewelry and purses.) In the past I had a guest bedroom that was pink and green, so this one is definitely toned down a bit.
Just for fun, let's look at the "before" picture. This was taken right after we bought the house. The color was a bit bright, and I am not a fan of ceiling fans in bedrooms.
The monogrammed pillow shams and the Mississippi pillow are two of my very favorite pieces. The shams are simple, white quilted Shabby Chic shams from Target, but my sister's friend, Katie, of Mississippi Stitches, made them gorgeous when she monogrammed them for me. She also made the wonderful Mississippi pillow. I am a proud Mississippi girl!
The Euro shams and the duvet cover (folded at the foot of the bed for a pop of color) are both from Pottery Barn. The fringed burlap bed-skirt (shown in another picture) is from Ballard Designs.
I firmly believe that beautiful art doesn't have to be outrageously expensive. The two pieces by the window are pages from a calendar that I had framed. The calendar featured original art that was auctioned to benefit the University of Mississippi's Children's Hospital. Obviously, I couldn't purchase the original, but the prints from the calendar are wonderful when framed!!
The chifforobe was one of the pieces we purchased AK (After Katrina!) I still love it! The sewing machine side table was a Valentine present from my husband a few years ago. This room is filled with other things I love such as McCarty bunnies and art from Mississippi artists. The print above the small table is by Mississippi artist, Wyatt Waters.
Of course, a prissy chandelier was needed to make dress up the space.
The beach painting is an original that was painted for me by my good friend, Diane. I distressed the simple brown frame so it would better suit the beach scene.
Old family photos are hung to the right of the bed. Baby pics of my mother, father, and grandmother are so special to me!
hope you enjoyed "visiting" our cozy guest bedroom. Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that this bedroom has a walk-in closet! It is perfect for storing my "alternate season" clothes and decorative items, and various other items too special to be stored in the attic.
