When we switched the bedrooms this winter so that the girls could each have their own room the remaining items ended up in here in our guest room. I didn't love the white headboard against the white wall so I thought I would possibly try to recover the headboard or maybe paint the walls. I decided to paint the walls because I thought it would be a little more fun that way, and if I hated it, it's pretty easy to just paint them again a lighter colors. I am still working on this room (for instance I am switching out the nightstands for round wood ones that I am really excited about and switching up the bedding a little bit) but I thought I would show a little peek of how it's looking.
The first thing I did was paint the walls Nightfall in an eggshell finish from Benjamin Moore. Then I added some black buffalo check drapery panels from Country Curtains. I went with the 96" length and love how they look. I like that they keep the room from getting too modern or formal looking and they have great weight to them. I'll have some better photos of them when we share the whole room! It was raining the day I took these so they are pretty grainy. I am thinking about getting the larger gingham check for our dining room - they are so beautiful! And then I hung this chandelier. I love the dainty size of it for this room. And I like the touch of gold it adds to coordinate with the gold lamps I found at HomeGoods.
I love this Portrait of Josephine Gaujelin. I am not sure I like her on that wall though. I think I may move her over near the desk area. And I am playing around with some mirrors in here. I haven't decided which one I am going to end up using. This round wood one is from HomeGoods. I love the size and the round shape but don't think the overall look will be quite right, but I am not positive yet.
And then over on this wall I hung our new artwork from Deann Art. This one is called Courage to Bloom (make sure to scroll down past the originals which are sold out, to the gallery wrapped canvas options which are available in several different sizes!) I actually think I love this piece even more than our angel one which I can't believe I am saying. I absolutely LOVE the colors and the overall feel of it! And I LOVE how it looks against the dark walls. However, after a few days of it hanging in here I got a little sad about it because I don't go in this room all that often, so I didn't really get to enjoy it so I ended up moving it downstairs to a spot I get to enjoy it in all day long. I'll share some pictures of where it ended up in the next post. And then we added a standing lamp from HomeGoods because I had stolen the one we used to have in here to use in Lillie's new room.
I can't wait to share full room shots once it's finished!
And lastly here's our newest print just in time for summer! It's another one of our favorite F. Scott Fitzgerald quotes:
“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees... I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”
