Happy Friday friends! I hope you all had a good week! Mine was ok. Truthfully a little long.. but we made it. :) It has been a while since I shared progress on our guest room decor! I thought sharing where I’m at with this space might be a good way to end our week. You think so too? Oh good! Funny how we always tend to think alike, isn’t it!
That’s why we get along so well. :)
If you remember my first post on this room, it started out as my son’s bedroom when we moved into our new house because this room is close to our master bedroom and Kole was just three when we moved in.
That was always going to be temporary and as soon as he turned seven we moved him into his “real” room next to his sisters. (Hoping to finish this space soon!)
I was left with a blank slate in the new guest room and started by adding a focal grid pattern wall. That’s just about where I left off last time.
Ready to see what it looks like today?
Ta-da! Yea! A REAL guest room! With a bed and nightstands and pillows.. oh my. :) I wanted this room to feel light and bright and airy and cozy. The cozy was easy to pull off because it’s not a big room. The white duvet cover made things feel airy and spacious and the nightstands, rug and pillows add a bright pop of color. Done done and done. :)

Details! Here we go..
For the bed I chose this Pondicherry bed with nailheads in a soft grey fabric. I knew I loved it when I ordered it on-line, but when it arrived at my house and I saw it in person.. GAH! It’s so gorgeous! I couldn’t stop walking into this room and staring at it for several days after it came! I tend to lean towards straight lines with furniture so this bed was a bit outside of my comfort zone at first, but because the wall had so many straight lines in the grid pattern this style of bed ads some contrast and works so much better.
The bedding is this Claremore Duvet. Very similar to the white duvet cover I put in my master bedroom! I love the fun pattern on both of these white duvet covers. I thought about putting a set of larger pillows in the back, but when guests come and stay I don’t love having too many pillows for them to set aside each night. Plus I love the headboard so much I decided to keep it simple with pillows and let it be the star of the show. :)
The pillows are from Anthro. I think the larger two sold out but the mint pillow in front you can find here. I’m having a serious obsession with Anthro pillows at the moment! They have so many cute options for Spring and the texture and colors are just too much fun. You’ll see more popping up all over my home in my next post! :)
This little moment I couldn’t love more! I kind of want to move these mint nightstands into my bedroom because I love them so much. I won’t.. because they aren’t the right size or color for that room.. but oh.. they have my heart. When my mom first saw them she said they had “Erin” written all over them. :)
So do these lamps! Just like the bed, the day these were delivered was a happy day.. they are absolutely stunning in person! And aren’t the fringe tassels fun!?
I’ve had my eye on this gorgeous Malibu Chandelier for quite a while and never found anything I liked better for the guest room. It was a splurge, but is such a stunning fixture! (I shared this chandelier on IG stories once and got so many questions about similar less expensive options so I’ll link to some below!) Beaded chandeliers add so much texture to a space and really make a statement. I’m a fan!
I also love the way the whole frame of the fixture is covered in hemp clear to the top! It’s such a beautiful fixture.
This pretty flower painting was a great price and it was the perfect size for this little wall space next to the window.
Now for the other side of the bedroom! I mentioned in my first guest room decor post that my parents use this room more than anyone and my mom put in a request for a TV when we were building. She likes to stay up late watching the news in bed. :) The only space for it was in-between the closet and bathroom door.
I debated what to put below the TV and decided on this Dorsay Console Table. I had envisioned something with a marble looking top and gold legs so I told my friend/designer Tritia to see if she could find something like that for me in the right size. Major score when she landed on this beautiful piece of furniture! I love it so much but almost didn’t order it because the reviews aren’t great. I decided to try it and see for myself and seriously don’t know what people are talking about! It’s gorgeous in person and great quality. It has a matching coffee table that I would snatch up in a heartbeat if I had a place to put it!
There are drawers in the closet in this room so I didn’t need a dresser for guest’s clothes, and because of the small walk way space I wanted something that wouldn’t take up a lot of room. This console table will be a perfect place for guests to set their keys, purse, hat, etc. I was initially planning on getting a bench for the end of this bed, but because the table is the long shape of a bench I ended up ordering these X base stools instead.
I chose a good neutral fabric in case I eventually put these in a different room. Decor tends to move around often at my house. :)
This Distressed Arabesque Wool Rug was another item I had been wanting for a long time and just didn’t have a place to put it. I keep looking for rugs for this room and not loving anything and would think “I wish that navy Arabesque rug worked in this space..” Then I finally just decided it does work in this space!
Why not add a pop of navy!? It pulls the blue out of the pillows. And even more importantly.. I love it! One thing I’ve learned decorating this home.. worry less about what “works” and more about what you love. When you surround yourself with things you love, they always work together.
Plus they make you happy. Bonus. :)
I still want to do something fun on this blank wall. I have an idea! (I’m never short on ideas.. the time needed to make ideas actually happen is a different story.. can anyone relate?)
I also want a fun throw to put at the end of the bed..
and I need to accessorize the console table and nightstands with a few things.
But after those small additions this room will be done!
One more room that will be checked off the list! We’ve lived in our home 4 1/2 years now and I’m almost done decorating. Even though I’ll never really be done decorating.
You feel that way about your home too? Funny how we always tend to think alike, isn’t it!
That’s why we get along so well.

I just hung this fun gallery wall in our guest room! Snapped this quick with my phone but I’ll share better pics soon! I’ll also share pics of what I’m putting in them as soon as I figure that out.. ha. :) For those asking you can find these frames HERE. I ordered six of the 8×10 (15×19 without the mat).

What a lovely welcoming space for your guests. I’m sure your parents enjoy this space tremendously. So many things to like. The chandelier is amazing! But you know what really caught my undecoratorish eye? That painting. Wow! I think that is gorgeous! I really like everything you have done in the space, but that painting just pulls me in. I also love that you said, buy what you love and it will work! Absolutely wonderful comment. I’m so glad you are doing that. I think it shows! Congratulations on continuing your progress on decorating your house. Have a wonderful weekend! :)
Thank you so much Jeanne! Isn’t that art pretty? And it was the least expensive thing in the room.. go figure! :) I’m so happy you like it all! Your “undecoratorish eye” comment made me laugh.. ha! I bet you have more of an eye than you think you do. Enjoy your weekend too sweet friend! xo

So sweet of you Kari! Thank you! I’m so glad you told me the link to the artwork wasn’t working! I just fixed it! And saw that it’s on sale.. woot woot! :) xo
Still not working. Do they not allow you to share links from that site?
Kari that’s so strange.. it’s totally working on my end and I had a friend check and it’s working for her too. Try refreshing/restarting your computer or going into Chrome instead of Safari and see if that works! If it doesn’t shoot me an e-mail and I’ll send you the link and see if it works that way for you!
working now! Thx!
YEA! You bet. ;)
