Guest Bedroom | The Layout

It's been about two months since we last discussed the guest bedroom. When we left off, I shared the game plan so now I will share the room layout.

It's going to be pretty simple but I hope to add more layers as time goes on. So here it is:

I plan to mount our 32in TV to the wall that shares the entry door and possibly add a small console underneath it but I haven't decided for sure yet. I'm also deciding whether or not to incorporate a gallery wall with the mounted TV.

To the left of the bed will be the night stand and I am hoping to add a wall mount lamp but if not a table lamp would work just fine as well. The right side of the bed will have a comfy reading chair and a reading lamp. We also will hang this beautiful Polish painting my grandmother gave us above the bed.

I am also still deciding what to do with the wall that shares the window. I may put a sewing table there so I can actually use my sewing machine or a simple book shelf. Decisions. Decisions.

For now here is a sneak peak of the progress thus far:

What do you think about a gallery wall featuring a TV?

Guest Bedroom | Game Plan

Two weeks ago I shared the before pictures of our guest bedroom and now I will finally show the game plan for the room.

When I first started pinning pictures for a guest bedroom, I kept going with a Coral and Aqua color palette. While I love that palette, it never felt like me at least for our house but in other houses it looked amazing. I wanted to make it work but I just couldn't so I started from square one.

The first question in my mind was the direction I wanted the room to go. I knew I wanted it to feel luxurious as if you were staying at a fancy smancy hotel but how to get there I was uncertain.

Than I found it. The inspiration.


The little mermaid. 

I had the picture for years from a trip I made to Disneyland in California as a little girl. I knew immediately I would need to make sure the room wouldn't turn into a childish themey room but a room with sophistication.

Before even scouring Pinterest, I found the perfect curtains:

I was already satisfied with the direction we were going but I needed a little more inspiration so in came Pinterest.

I can't find the original link so let me know if you know it please!

See where I am going with this? Let's hope I can pull this off before summer  winter comes and go.

Where does your inspiration come from to makeover a room? Have you used Disney as your anchor piece for a room before?

Guest Bedroom: The Befores

The time has come to finally complete a guest bedroom. At our old house, our guest bedroom served as a storage for boxes I did not want to deal with going through. You know what I am talking about right?

Well, luckily our guest bedroom at the new house was occupied for the first few months and now that it is free again we want to complete it before it becomes a dumping ground  (which honestly it already has a little).

So let's get to the befores because whats a makeover without showing the starting point but first let me start off apologizing about the lighting of the photos. I just got my Nikon Coolpix P530 for Christmas and I am still learning how to adjust the lens.

This is the view if you would be entering the room after coming out of the laundry room and you can already see the random stand in there.
Now you see, I also have my sister's TV stored in here as well as a random stand. Anywho, I am most excited about this view because I have curtains that are on the way and they should be here any day.

Looking towards the closet and the entry of the bedroom. I also have plans to re-model the closet as well but that will be a whole other project at a different time.

And that is a pile of pillows that need to be cleaned but I am ashamed to say that I have been too lazy to deal with them so I stuffed them in here and closed the door. Dumping ground much?

 One last look when you enter in the bedroom.
For a better understanding of the layout, I created this thingy mahjig. The random things will be removed and will not be apart of the gameplan. Speaking of gameplan, I have already been working on items for the direction of this room but I will save that for another post.

Do you have a dumping ground? What do you use your spare bedroom for? Does anyone else hate washing pillows?
