I’m here today to provide you with a little bit of eye candy in the form of some photos that have been providing some serious inspiration for our guest room. I am loving all the crisp white bedding, neutral colours and in particular, the patterned pillows.
You see, we have been in our house for just over a year and a half and have made some good progress on the main floor but have neglected much of the upstairs. I think that is both the blessing and the curse of split-level and two-storey homes; doors can be closed and no one will ever be the wiser!
Well, let’s just say I got sick of closing those doors and looking at the, quite frankly, terrible colours we had on our walls and decided that enough is enough. And so began #operationnocloseddoors.
We’ve spent the better part of this weekend priming and then painting the room. Next up will be adding the new baseboards and window frame. Even after just one coat of paint, I can’t get over how different (and much better) it looks!
As for furniture, we purchased some of it, and had some already but I am still on the hunt for things like pillows and other decor. Right now I am leaning towards some beautiful pillows from none other than Caitlin Wilson. We got a great deal on a new mattress from The Bay during their recent Bay Days sale and purchased this bed that reminds me of the beautiful iron bed frame I keep pinning, but is significantly more affordable and available to pick up, instead of ordering online.
I’ll be sure to show some photos of the actual room (including some before photos as well). For now, enjoy these photos of beautiful, cozy and inviting rooms that are inspiring me in designing our own.
Now, who’s coming to stay once it’s done?
