Every time I make over a room, I think, “This one is going to come together so quickly and not take a million months like that last one.” Then life happens, and history repeats itself. C’est la vie, I suppose!
However, I did promise you that the next time I showed my guest bedroom, it would have bed linen. And that, my friends, is a promise I can keep because I finally have bedding! Yay! There are also a few other new details so I thought it might be good to show you around.
First, let’s talk bedding. I tried a variety of colors and patterns, but nothing really worked. Because I like to have fun with accessories, I finally decided that a neutral solid might be best. After much searching, I chose the Hayes Nova Dove Grey duvet cover and shams from Crane & Canopy.
The color turned out to be perfect. It’s a beautiful light warm gray color that works well with the curtains. It also has great two-toned details (again, similar to the curtains). So when you fold over the top of the duvet, you get a beautiful pop of white that coordinates with the white piping around the whole duvet. This detail also hides a long zipper which makes stuffing the duvet into the cover a breeze.
And if that’s not enough to love, the fabric is sumptuous! It’s so soft and silky in the best possible way. I’m thinking I need to have a little stay-cation and spend the night in my own guest room. Haha. That’s a sure sign of an inviting guest room, right? My point is, if you’re looking for some beautiful bedding, Crane & Canopy comes highly recommended.
With the main bedding in place, I wanted to bring in color to tie in my aqua chandelier. Lucky for me, while doing some Christmas shopping back in December, I stumbled upon this green and blue blanket (currently on sale) from Pottery Barn.
Needless to say, I was ecstatic to see how well it worked with the space and the light fixture.
I also picked up a few black pillows at HomeGoods with thoughts of incorporating one more lumbar style pillow for a final pop of color. Coming soon!
Finally, you’ll notice one other new detail – artwork! While I do hope to add a few more things to this wall (This single piece feels a bit lonely.), I was thrilled to have another Lindsay Letters‘ piece in my home. (I think I’m becoming addicted. I incorporated another one of her canvas pieces into my other guest bedroom last week.)
This particular one is called Pine on Snow.
Sometimes I struggle finding art that not only works in the room but also speaks to me. When I came across this piece, I immediately fell in love. Although it’s called Pine on Snow, to me it’s more like Sparkle on the Lake, and that’s exactly what I wanted to capture in this room.
No matter what you call it, I’m just happy that this room is finally starting to come together. It’s come a long way from it’s pink-with-black-wallpaper-border beginnings, don’t you agree?
What do you think of the new additions and direction of the room?
(Oh, and since some of you might be wondering, the beautiful green brushstroke lamp is from Jana Bek, the Rug is from Urban Outfitters, and the silver trunk was a HomeGoods’ find.)
