Updates in the Guest Bedroom


It’s been a while since I showed you around my guest bedroom. That’s mostly because not much has changed. I do have a few little updates, so I thought I’d share them with you today. Then, the next time we take a look at this space, I hope it will be pretty close to complete … or at least I’ll have linens on the bed. Am I a horrible blogger for continuing to show you this space without bed linens!? #rebel

Now for a look at the bedroom progress. Most notably, I picked up a rug for the space. As you can see, I married the two design options I shared with you earlier.

I have to tell you I’m kind of bummed about this rug. (Rug details HERE.)

Yes, it works beautifully in the space. The colors are spot on. Plus, it looks super soft (and it is), and it’s a great size. However, at this particular moment, I’m terribly disappointed with the quality. It’s shedding like crazy, and because of the shedding, the marvelous design and colors appear blurry.

It looks better from certain angles, but it’s still bumming me out. I’m going to see how much it sheds after a few more runs with the vacuum and go from there. I understand that new rugs tend to shed a bit, but this seems excessive. Whomp. Whomp.

Still, from a how-it-looks-and-feels-standpoint, I do like it.

The next new item is this cool trunk that I found at T.J. Maxx a couple weeks ago. It was on clearance, and I thought it could make a unique side table. Plus, I love all of the hidden storage. (A place to stash my excess collection of throw pillow is essential.)

Finally, this past weekend, I started cleaning out my attic and garage. I was starting to feel like a hoarder. I ended up selling and giving away three dressers, multiple chairs, cabinets I never used, a Christmas tree, etc. It felt so good to clear the space and pass these things to new homes.

During this furniture shuffle, I moved a dresser up into this guest bedroom. I had this piece in mind for this room for a while. It’s solid wood and in decent shape. Plus, I adore the details. It’s the perfect touch of vintage.

Beyond touching up a couple of nicks and scratches and possibly changing out the hardware (I’m thinking these would be great.), I think it’s good to go. It’s already storing some out-of-season clothes, so I’m happy about that.

I also pulled the round mirror from my attic. I think it will work great above the dresser. I just need to hang it on the wall when I get a few more details figured out.

I’m loving being able to shop from my own house!

Finally, I was starting to get worried about the light fixture. As I’ve mentioned, I bought the fixture for this room many years ago. Instead of buying something new, I wanted to give this piece a shot in the space. As I started adding in more elements, I just wasn’t sure the style or color was going to work. So, I decided to test some things out. I brought in a few books in the same color tones as my glamorous chandelier. Lo and behold, they brought it all together. It’s amazing how one small tweak can make something work for the good. Right? I think this chandy might just work out after all.

I think that’s it for today. Consider yourself officially updated. Next time I promise to add some bed linens.

    Don’t get rid of the chandelier! It’s so awesome and I love it in this space! Love the new vintage dresser – it is beautiful. I can’t wait to see how the space looks after the addition of bed linens.

    I had a scare like that with my wool rug a few years ago, but it ended up working out. I’d be a little concerned about this style rug shedding heavily. It’s an investment, so if there’s something else you love, I’d replace it.

  • Ellie K at

    Awesome work! I love your style. On a semi-unrelated note, how do I find your archives by date? I can see the most recent three posts on the home page, I can see the categories, I cannot find a place to show me the most recent posts after those three on the home page and it is driving me crazy!! I used to read your blog nearly every day. When you did your redesign I missed a week or two and got frustrated that I couldn’t find what I missed. Now I feel like I’ve really lost touch. It’s crazy but I feel like the design of your site has discouraged me from following along and that is just sad because I LOVE your stuff! Any suggestions for how to find what I’m looking for. PS. Not a bloglovin ‘ type of person.

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Thank Ellie! Sorry your having a tough time navigating. So, if you’re on the homepage (inspiredbycharm.com) at the very bottom it says “find more articles”. If you click on the word “articles” it gives you the complete archives of the blog. Every post is there, in order, and each post is dated. Also, at the very bottom of every page, in the chalkboard section is a link for “archives”. Again, this will take you to every post in order by date.

      Is this what you’re looking for?

      xo Michael

    I was so interested in the rug and chandelier, I didn’t even notice until you mentioned it that there wasn’t bed linens! Ha.

  • Beth of designPOST interiors at

    Ugh that shedding is a bummer because the rug is so cool! I saw that exact trunk in our TJ Maxx and was headed back for it for a client and it was gone. When will I learn that you never leave something there!?

  • Victoria at

    Love the chandy! It’s difficult to tell from just an image on the internet but would Farrow & Ball’s Arsenic match it? You could always paint a few accessories or a lamp to bring in more of that colour.

  • Elise at

    Yes!!! Hide all the pillows!!! 🙂 #hoarderproblems

  • Colleen at

    I love your aesthetic throughout your house, this room is gorgeous too. The dresser is wonderful! I looked at your link with the two original design concepts, the artwork you included in those mood boards would help reflect the chandelier color as well as the books and the great throw pillow,suggestion above. Can’t wait to see what you do with the rest of the details!

  • SilvanaJoanne at

    I think it’s looking great. The chandy adds a uniqueness to the room so I wouldn’t touch it at all. Rugs do tend to shed as soon as you get them. It looks nice in there so give it some more time. I think a nice big jute rug would look good in that room as well though.

  • Maureen at

    I’m thinking it’s coming together also, that chandy is going to really make the room and I love that dresser, it’s gorgeous! I’d love to shop your house too! (= It’s one of my favorite homes ever and always gives me a peaceful feeling… a home for living in.

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      You are so sweet Maureen. That’s the ultimate goal, so I’m glad it can be seen. 🙂 Thanks!!


  • Mary at

    I think the room is coming along nicely. Maybe until you buy the new knobs you could just paint the existing ones a matte black? And go through your pillow collection to find one the color of your chandelier. I can’t wait to see what you do with the bedding.

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Thanks Mary! Oh, yes. A throw pillow or two will definitely be happening to bring in the chandelier color. 🙂

      xo Michael

  • Megan at

    I can see why you are not pleased with the rug, but I hope it works out in the end for you. The design is pretty fab. I am a bit shocked that you were considering getting rid of the chandy! Thank goodness for the books, is all I can say. Lastly, I can’t believe you had that beautiful dresser in storage! I am sure the handles will be great, but it is beautiful just the way it is.
