The blank slate circa October 2010
Picture this with paper blinds and a random assortment of furniture & you've got our current guest bedroom. Sure there's a place to sleep and a spot for your clothes, and even a chair to read in, but it was feeling a little unloved. Each room has to feel loved, so this was not ok.
It started with a need for an inexpensive desk for my schoolwork and ended up being the perfect compliment to the guest room! Actually, I had made the design board for this room way before beginning the guest bath and hadn't even considered how the two would look together. I love happy coincidences.
We also needed something a little nicer than the futon for our poor moms to sleep on, but needed a smaller footprint than a traditional full or queen bed. Luckily for us IKEA makes this awesome daybed that converts to a double when you slide the trundle out. WIN!
So here's the breakdown:
(2) 16"sq pillows - Betwixt in Grass (already have!)
(2) 20"sq pillows in teal (already have!)
(1) 14" x 24" pillow - Bayrum in Orchid
Logan Writing Desk (already have!)
Thrifted chair, upholstered in a Sunbrella fabric
Brushed nickel knobs we have lying around the house
Before I commit to the table and lighting and some other accents I have in mind, I plan to shop Marshalls, World Market & Ross to see what I can find. I can't wait to put this plan in motion.
