Guest Room Refresh

Hi!  I have been hard at work getting our upstairs bedrooms refreshed before we have guests visit next week.  First, let me share the before photos of the south side bedroom.

YIKES, that blue ceiling!

It’s funny, this room has become the room of “island of misfit furniture” 🙂

Reminds you of Rudolf, right?

All items (except the bed) I purchases because I liked or were gifted (the rug is from my Grandma Barb) and I had nowhere to put them, hence the name  “island of misfit furniture.”

It actually turned out pretty cute, huh?!

I decided to go with white walls because it makes the room look a bit bigger.  The blue chair was painted (pre blog days!) and I updated my reupholstered settee with a few cute pillows.  The fabrics and furniture make it feel very Ralph Lauren.

I can’t wait to show you the other room I’m redoing!  The front guest bedroom is going to be styled around our recent trip to India.  We bought the cutest bed sheet there and my inspiration  came from the stamped elephant fabric (a technique I shared in this post).

I’ll give you a little teaser!


Cute, huh?!  I can’t wait to share the entire room!

Linking up with Savvy Southern Style.
