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:
