Guest Room Transformation with Amazing Before & After Photos

November 11, 2017

Marsha, we have outdone ourselves this time with your guest bedroom makeover!  As always, working with you has been such a pleasure. I love how well we work together searching and finding the next perfect piece to our design puzzle. Your new guest room is just beautiful! :

Marsha and I have worked on several home projects online together in the past few years. She lives in Illinois, I am in New Hampshire. This time she was looking to update her guest room:

When we started this project, she had already found a comforter set she loved and wanted to use in the new room:


I love the colors don’t you? A great starting point for selecting our paint colors. She stated that she wanted a new headboard and she would like to keep her existing dresser but would be willing to paint if necessary:

So we did!I suggested painting with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Provence:

She loved doing the project herself and it came out beautifully! The knobs are gorgeous too:

For the headboard, Marsha picked this lovely upholstered headboard in ivory:


Great price with almost perfect reviews.  

Those were the two big pieces for the room. The next big decision was wall color. I don’t think there would be a more perfect choice of color than Ben Moore Palladian Blue HC-144:


Here is the new stylish mirror we choose for over the dresser:



Big Design Tip! Changing out your dresser mirror, instead of using the one that came with dresser, can give your room a more updated look:

Working online together with clients, I always send two or three choices, which will all work well in the room, of each item to let the client pick their favorite and order.


I am thrilled that you are so happy with how your guest room came out Marsha! Thank you so much for sharing. Don’t you think the room came out amazing everyone?

  1. Just Wow! You took the guest room to the next level beautifully coordinating all furnishings. I remember how you transformed the kitchen to fresh and lovely, but I never saw the front door and backyard deck Kelly. The red-orange door is the perfect compliment to the brick! Everything else, trim, deck and shutters all combine excellently.
