I am so excited to show you my guest bedroom! Actually, it’s been a work in progress for quite a while now. My taste typically changes from month to month, season to season. However, when my husband and I purchased our mid-century home a few years ago, I had a clear-cut vision in my mind and as luck would have it, my vision has always remained the same! My husband Jared is super cool and very supportive of my all my creative whims… But much to his mild aggravation, this space has actually been painted a couple of times….by him. In essence, his audible annoyance was completely founded, after most of his entire weekend was taken up priming and painting two and half coats on the walls… I hated the color!! Yes, the color I so unfortunately chose! Whoops! Even as an experienced designer, I still find paint to be one of the hardest choices. So the conversation went a bit like this… Me: “Jared, thank you so much for painting the bedroom, BUT I really hate the color…” My husband Jared: “Ummmm, REALLY KATIE….SERIOUSLY? In my opinion, it’s very hard to find the “perfect” shade of chocolate brown. (Designer Tip: If you attempt to select a dark chocolate its typically best to steer clear of any shades of brown that have a greenish undertone.) My final project for this room has been deciding what to hang over the bed. Previously I had two pretty cool vintage black and white prints. But I recently moved them to the family room. This past weekend I found this starburst mirror for $25.00 in the scratch and dent section of (once again)Wistera Outlet. Oringally it was gold but I spray painted it high gloss white. I am still undecided if it’s the perfect fit!
I really wanted guests to feel comfortable like they where staying at a boutique hotel. What do you think? I’d love to hear your feed back! Hopefully I achieved my goal!
Thanks so much for reading!
