home: guest bedroom inspiration board

Tuesday, March 5, 2013

The most neglected room in our house is the guest bedroom. It's not a common room, only used when our family and friends need a place to stay, and can sometimes double as an extra bedroom for the kitty. And besides the space where we store all of our coats and gift wrapping materials, I have not given the design of the room much thought. Until recently.
Although I won't call myself a designer, I will say that I'm a frugal planner. To keep this home improvement project on track and without spending large amounts of cash, I'm going to utilize most of our stuff and make sure that a fresh design is applied by following an inspiration board.
The bed, rug and dresser are staying, and most of the bedding - no argument here. Three of the four walls are going to remain as a neutral white while the wall behind the bed will get a fresh coat of Benjamin Moore's Cool Breeze paint (also a Young House Love color choice). 
The art is a piece that was handed down to us by sweet aunt G and needed a new place to live. At this time, it needs a frame and some TLC, but it will look fantastic in the finished room. All of the other pieces will come into place as I work on this room before April 1!
In the meantime, here's a sweet guide from the Jew in J Crew on how to get a spare bedroom cozy ready for that special guest!

  3. Much like pool lighting, total pool mortar completes produce lavishly shaded pools. Pool mortar shields solid gunite pools from harming, yet new mortar innovation has grown significantly more stylishly satisfying options in contrast to exhausting, white Marcite mortar. pool guy

  4. PH balance is the third key to adjusting swimming pool synthetic substances. PH is the record to indicate how acidic or soluble (fundamental) pool water is. The perfect for a swimming pool is simply being on the fundamental side. swimming pool maintenance checklist
