Guest Room

Hello all.  I thought I would share one of my guest rooms.  When we moved in I let my Mom design it as I expected her to visit more often.  After six years I am ready for a change.  For the last month or so I have been gathering things to give it an updated look.  I hope to have it completed in the next couple of weeks.  In the mean time, here is how it looks now.



This good is good size, about 15 X 13 with the bathroom in the room,  it has some interesting angles, as you can here.  This is looking in from the hallway.  Full morning sun streaming in.



The hardest part about redoing this room is the bedding.  I love four poster beds, but the mattress sits so high that bed skirts have to be made custom for it.  The skirt on this bed has to have a 22" drop, standard is 15".  This bedding my Mom picked out from JCP, then she altered the skirt.  Once again I  regret not letting her teach me to sew.  She is 75 now, and probably would alter another for me,  but I know it would be a hardship for her.


Next to the bed is this little glass top table.  I love the bling lamp, it is so cute.  I found the fan and kimono at Cost Plus, along with the large fan over the bed.


On the wall across from the bed and next to the bathroom I have the dresser.  On top is a Asia doll/figure that my Mom found. In a old humidor  I arranged some poppy's and artichokes, I thought it had a Asian feel.


The above picture is looking straight into the bathroom.  I really love the shower curtain with all the beading. It also was found at JCP.  On the back of the toilet I have a candle wrapped in bamboo stalks.



On the wall across from the tolet, I have these little plaques with Chinesse symbols for love, happines, harmony and family.  Underneath is the towel rack, love the fringe on these towels.

On the side of the room with the toilet is the vanity.


Here are a couple more shots showing some of the art work.



These two prints I found for a dollar each at Walmart, then picked up the frames for $2 each - very thrify and still fits the theme.


  Since starting this blog I have learned you need to take a picture to see how something really looks.  Looking over this post the room seems kinda empty, which looking at it in real life it does not.

Well I hope you enjoyed the tour of our main guest room. I love all your comments, thanks for taking the time to leave them.

You will find me at these fun parties:

Hi Toni! Your guest room looks very nice, but I understand wanting a change after six years. I know what you mean about the pictures making the room appear emptier than it is. I'm always looking for just that right angle to keep it from doing that...but it's hard! You've done a great job! I'll be watching for your after pictures!

I like the Asian theme you have going on in your guest bedroom. But I totally understand wanting a change - I seem to always be thinking about making over rooms in my house!

I think a desk that doubles as a night table would be a nice addition to the empty wall beside the bed.

Looking forward to seeing the room in a couple of weeks :-) Have fun decorating!

{Thanks for checking out my dining room makeover :-) }

So so true! Pictures make your rooms look so empty, but they don't feel like it in real life. I have noticed that too, and then when I look at photos in magazines, I realize they have stuffed a million things in! Just count the number of plants in one of their pictures.

Loved your comment on my great great grandchildren reading my blog books. That really touched me! Wouldn't that have been great to have from our grandparents or great grandparents!

I really like the Asian theme you have in the Guest bedroom. My master bedroom has a very similar theme right now! I should send you the pictures we just took off the wall for the upcoming re-do of those rooms ;)

Hi Toni! Thank you so much for your comments on my blog! I really do appreciate it. I am working now so am very slow in getting back to people but always enjoy visiting new blogs. I stopped by the other day but didn't have time to leave a comment, then. I may do that some but will come back later when I have more time. I wanted to tell you I love the two pictures of the bridges over the marsh at sunset in your previous post. Where is that? I know you must be excited to do a makeover on this room. I look forward to seeing your makeover!

This room has great bones. I really love the bed. Looking forward to seeing what you do with it. Happy Weekend!

I think visitors to your guest room would feel very relaxed & welcomed, Toni. You did a very nice job of pulling all the elements of your chosen theme together. You said you felt it was missing something or seemed empty. What about a small chair in that corner to the left of your big window? Just something simple; a place to sit and put your shoes on.

Hi, Toni. I am your swap partner on the Sue Loves Cherries tag swap. I am also your newest follower. I am glad to visit your blog...I thought these pics were the "after". They are beautiful and you have a lovely taste in decorating.

Thanks for visiting my post! Just wanted to let you know you can save some money on making your bed skirt. Use an old sheet or a cheap sheet from the dollar store. Use it as your top and sew your material to it. You don’t see it. Big saving!  Hope it helps!
