Earlier this year I mentioned wanting to put the finishing touches on my guest bedroom. Well, I did. Today, I’m going show you my updated guest bedroom.

As you know, I’m moving into a new place in a few weeks. (More details on that here.) To get ready, I’ve been cleaning, organizing, and clearing the clutter in my current home. It’s not going as quickly as I would like, but I am making progress. My goal is to completely rid this house of excess stuff (There’s a lot of it!) and to put everything in its proper place. My hope is that knowing where everything is will make the transition from home to home during the year go more smoothly.

All of that information probably isn’t relevant to this post, but I’m happy to be able to cross one room off my to-do list.

As you might remember, a few years ago I painted this room and slowly started to redecorate. I don’t get many house guests, so finishing the space was never a high priority.

However, every month I write a post for the HomeGoods Design Happy blog, and this month’s post happened to be about bedrooms. I took this opportunity to put the finishing touches on this space (for now at least). You can check out my HomeGoods post here. It’s filled with tips for creating a cozy guest bedroom.

Getting wall decor for this space was a must. I ended up with this collection of rattan trays that I found in the outdoor section at HomeGoods. Three nails and five minutes later I had some classy wall art with great texture for under $40. Project complete!

I also updated several of the pillows. I found these gorgeous oversized white down-filled Ralph Lauren pillows (also at HomeGoods) that worked perfectly for the bed. I love them so much that they may end up moving with me to my new space.

I also added a couple new vases around the room. This allowed me to replace smaller items with larger statement pieces.

The biggest change or addition to this room is the gorgeous light blue velvet chair. It is the perfect blend of traditional and modern so it works well with my eclectic style. I love the lines of the piece and the dark wood-grained legs, and it’s comfortable to boot. Every guest room should have a cozy chair. (The cats seem to agree.)

Near the dresser, I swapped out an old, damaged mirror for something new. I fell in love with this big chunky wood mirror so it needed to come home with me. To be honest, I don’t love the wood-on-wood of the dresser and the mirror, but it works for now. The finish on the dresser is a bit “busted” so I might paint it down the road and change out the knobs. We’ll see.

    Is the chandelier from Home Goods??

      I’ve sourced most things towards the bottom of the post. 🙂

    What a soothing sleeping space. (I’m still crazy about that chandelier!)

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Thanks so much! Yes, it’s a stunner.

    Gorgeous! I am digging the wood mirror and wood dresser, but I love things that appear to match. I know matchy matchy is so out of style, but I can’t help myself…I love balance. Great job!

  • Annie at

    Looks so cosy and welcoming. I love that chandelier as well-I love that color.

  • Patricia at

    I like the dresser the way it is. Maybe the matchy-matchy wood tones wouldn’t be a problem if the two pieces were split up. Move that cool mirror to the city and find another mirror and paint it your accent color. Or better yet, an old frame and turn that into a DIY post!

    I think that mirror wants to move to the city…

    I didn’t notice a source for the blue velvet chair. I love it!

    I’ve been struggling with decorating a room that will be for my mother. Your post greatly inspired me and offered helpful perspective.the spares pace you designed is lovely. Dresser is gorgeous as is.
    What style would you classify that piece?

  • Jane at

    LOVE that blue velvet chair!

    Trying to find the name of the lamp on the bedside table. I am having trouble on the lampsplus site. Do you know it’s name?

  • Pam Williams at

    I LOVE it, I love the art piece above the bed. You are so good at blending styles and I love the way it comes together. Where did the beautiful white vases come from, and I do love that mirror!

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      They are from HomeGoods as well. 🙂

    Love it all. I too am trying to declutter 40 years worth of stuff so you are my inspiration!

    I NEED the velvet chair for our new livingroom !! I know its a homegoods find but do you know the manufacturer name or have the tag with the sku numbers so I can continue to call around and find one ? So far I’m hitting dead ends trying to find one ( in any color) .

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      I wish I could help you, but there are no tags or manufacturer details on the chair. There were a couple store tags I pulled off when I brought it home but that was months ago and I don’t remember what they said.

      Sorry I can’t be of more help. Good luck on your hunt!

      xo Michael
