Just popping in today to give you a quick update on the progress in my guest bedroom. When I last showed it to you, I had just painted the walls (and bed frame), hung the light fixture, and come up with a couple options for the design plan.
As some of you suggested in the comments, I mashed up the two designs. Well, I didn’t completely combine them; rather, I took both into consideration. So a couple weeks ago when stores were having Labor Day sales, I ordered a rug (which is on backorder), drapes, and curtain rods. Late last night, I got the curtains up and wanted to share them with you.
I ended up with the Emery Border Drapes from Pottery Barn. (They were the ones I used in my plan.) I also went with their standard antique bronze curtain rods with ball finial. It was a bit of an investment, but with the sale, a coupon, and some store credit, the price wasn’t too bad.
Although I was worried about the grommet top (typically not my favorite), I’m pleased with how they look in the space. Plus, they’re different from my other window treatments! Other than desperately needing to be hemmed, I think they are going to work out great.
They aren’t too heavy in the space and they go well with the wall color, I think they’ll be amazing with the rug, and that white detail at the top is sharp.
I also like the curtains rods They are simple, and the ball finial repeats the ball detail on the bed frame. Win. Win!
While I plan to get the rug and bed linens in place before I start on accessories, I did pick up a few things at Target. I loved these new charcoal stoneware vases. I also found a couple throws and a pillow that might work. When shopping at Target, I’ve discovered that it’s better to buy things when you see them and then return them if they don’t work. If you wait, certain pieces tend to sell out. So, I went with my gut, and I’m hoping most of these things will work nicely.
Well, that’s it! Consider yourself updated.
Oh, and if you’re thinking, “Wow, Michael! You did a great job getting rid of the pillows and junk in the room.” Think again, my friends. All of those items are hiding on the other side of the bed. See.
Hope you enjoyed this mini-update. What do you think of the curtains and accessories I’ve selected?
