Some Artwork for Our Gray Guest Room


I've been looking for some artwork for above the bed in this room for a while and I have to say this horse picture was not at all what I was planning on or what I was looking for but every time we went into HomeGoods this winter Lola would want to go to the back and check and see if it was still there. She fell in love with it the first time we saw it and kept begging for us to get it. I have to admit it's pretty rare for my girls to fall in love with something that isn't pink or Elsa-related so I kept pondering it but didn't really think we had a good spot for it. Lola and I measured one of the walls in her room a few times but didn't think it would work right. Finally after a couple of months it was on clearance and marked WAY down so I figured we would at least bring it home and try finding somewhere for it. She was sooooo excited! After trying it in a couple of spots that didn't work we tried it in here. I loved how it looked against the dark gray walls and size worked nicely but I have to admit it throws me a little bit being above the bed and is a little bit bold for me. I think I would like it a little better above a sofa or dresser or something. However, Lola's excitement made it worth it.

For anyone that is new here I thought I would share a quick before shot of the room:

  2. Is there a cabinet in front of the door in the before picture? Your after is so much better for so many reasons, not the least of which is that one!

    1. Thanks! There used to be a cabinet in the room, but it wasn't blocking any doors :)

  3. It fits in well with the size and color scheme. I also like that it ties in with the horse on the dresser.
    Best,

  5. Oh my goodness what a beautiful room. I would never want to leave! I am loving the use of grey in my house as well, and black doors and white trim. Simply stunning. At Homesense (Canadian equivalent to Home Goods, same parent company) the "good stuff" seems to sell before it gets marked down. the picture you have - what a find!

  13. I've had more than one horse canvas over the years, and everybody stops to look at them, are always surprised, and loves them!

    This room is so peaceful and serene. Beautiful!

  14. I think Lola has a great eye- it's a beautiful picture and I love the contrast it adds to the room!

  15. Love the horse picture. As you say it's a bit bold but it's also calming in a way with such a beautiful animal to bring a touch of real life into the monochromatic setting. I like the unexpectedness of it. A picture of flowers or other more usual picture would probably look nice but this is much more unique and fitting with your gorgeous creation of a room. Sounds like you have a decorator in the making in the family.

  16. What if you put a gray barn wood frame around it?

  18. I have had my eye on the Edison rug for a while but was hesitant to order such a light color rug for our main living area. We have two kids and live on a farm! Do you think it would be durable enough? We don't usually wear shoes in the house. Does it shed terribly? (probably not in your low-traffic room?) I love your serene guest room. I'd never want to leave!

    1. Thanks, Jamie! Ours definitely did shed a lot in the beginning! I'm not sure I would recommend it for a main living space on a farm though, as ours does tend to show dirt.

    2. Darn! Thanks for your quick reply. I'm new to your blog and am loving it : )

    1. Hi--the rug has held up great! Jenni says it's gray with a taupe undertone.

    1. Thanks, Lisa! The bed is a queen, but unfortunately Jenni doesn't know the size of the rug--sorry!

  22. I did most of what's in the picture including the print of a horse (except in black) above the bed and it's as perfect as I was hoping for.
