This past week I was in the mood for a little decorating project! I decided to change up a guest room:
I know it is fine as it is, but I like moving stuff around and changing things up, don’t you? (I can see a few of you shaking your head yes!)
I have had an issue with this bed frame since we first bought it. But it is as it is, so I will work around it for now. I would like to someday buy a new upholstered headboard. So many beautiful choices to choose from. But not high up on the priority list right now.
I shopped around my home to find items to use in the guest bedroom. I found some pretty window treatments in a closet:
And for a different look on the bed, I took a soft white throw and laid it across the top:
It gives the bed more interest and texture. So comfy looking- nap, anyone?? You can do this with pretty scarves and throws with color and texture for a fun, colorful look. Don’t worry to much about matching with your bed linens because that is what makes it interesting in a small pop. Do you know what I mean?
Everything else in the room is basically staying the same. Another big change that is easy to do, is to replace the accessory behind the bed. I looked around the house and found this mirror:
I really liked the shape and the mirrored clock working with the bed, but it was just too small. I also tried this piece:
I loved this look. The color and shape are perfect. But again, too small. Time to bring in the big guns:
The size is definitely large enough. I thought about painting it with an Annie Sloan chalk paint color I have, Aubusson Blue :
I even texted my sister for a second opinion. She agreed the color is best left alone, not painted.
What do you think? Too bad it is not a professional picture like the first photo in the post. But I really like the change. Not too much work, fun and free is always best! Don’t be afraid to experiment with your art and accessory items and see how they look elsewhere in your home. You might have that perfect mirror for your bedroom hidden away in your dining room. Shop your space first!
Ready for guests! Have a great week everyone.
