Here is the room before. Dark with sporadic unmatching bed linens. What you aren't seeing is the dresser from 1988, rock posters and smashed gum in the carpet.
First we moved everything out of the room which made the holes in the wall much more apparent. Erica began spackling and I went in search of the paint. We started retouching the walls when we realized we were using the wrong paint because we are geniuses. Erica said we should "just repaint the entire room" and I said "I don't want to." In the end I found another can of paint hidden in my garage and we repainted the entire room in 2 hours because Erica gets shit done.
We started our journey (I've been watching too much Bachelor) looking for an inspiration piece and fell in love with this pillow from TJ Maxx. Behind it, I found great European pillows with white texturey (not a word) shams from Macys. The light blue pillows were on sale for $8 each.
For orange and green we found these cute things at Home Goods, or as I like to call that store "The Peoria Temple."
Added a sprinkle of blues and one brass kitten.
I'm always a sucker for anything with white shiny lacquer paint.
Hanging drapes from the ceiling makes your wall and window look higher, or so says HGTV.
We fell in love with these gold flower hooks and flower plate, we bought these because Erica said "I needed depth in the room" because she is brilliant. The gold frame was mine as was the blue paper, gold is making a comeback! My entire house will be in vogue again.
The guest room is complete.
