A Bright & Colorful Guestroom

Hello there! Sorry, today I’m posting the darkest picture ever (but before pictures are supposed to be bad, right?).

IMG_7439This is my friend’s guest room.  Her style is so bright and fun and colorful, but of course we all have those rooms that just sort of get neglected.  When its the guest room that you rarely use it doesn’t really matter!  Her in-laws were coming to stay in just a couple of weeks though so we needed to do something quick to perk up this room and make it a more welcoming space.

Here’s the plan we came up with:

Guest Room Moodboard

She had the walls painted gray and we used my favorite Ikea Ritva curtains on the windows.  Floor to ceiling- makes a big big difference! Since we were short on time and wanted to make the most of the budget (don’t we always want to make the most of our budget??) we decided to keep all existing furniture and just update the bedding.  We also added some bright & meaningful art, including several pieces done by her kids!  We found new lamps, and added in a graphic rug.  The result, I think, is a whole lot of fun!  We’re calling it The Love Shack, you’ll see why. 🙂

Their sweet little dog was just hanging out here the whole time Paul was shooting.  Seems like she thinks its a cozy little room!

It doesn’t take a huge budget or even a huge overhaul to make a big difference.  What’s that one room in your house that needs a little LOVE? 🙂

    My three favorite things are the knobs on the dresser, the yellow bird, & the lamps! I want those lamps! It’s definitely a fun room!
