My guest room is finally finished. I've been so busy over the past few months with clients that I've waited on my house for last. Here are a few pictures of the finished room. Of course, I say "finished" but at my house NOTHING is ever finished. I love to change things around, move things into other rooms, etc. that's the fun part of design. My clients like to say that once I leave, they are done with that room but when you are a decorator, you are never done decorating your own home....it's a joy to change it up all the time.
Rope covered candlesticks above the armoire didn't need candles because of their fun shape. The glass piece in the middle is a light fixture I found at a garage sale and it works perfectly with the colors in the duvet cover. I painted this armoire black (found it a Home Depot for $100) and sanded it down and rubbed it with a burnt umber glaze.
I always try to fill my rooms with beautiful things but things that have history and a story to tell. This makes it feel like YOUR home. Others will enjoy learning a bit about you from seeing the things you have and have collected over time.
I love the cheer and brightness of this room. Now all I need are some guests! Hmm...maybe not.... I think I'll check into the room myself, lock the door and curl up with the down comforter and read a few magazines. Who needs a hotel when you can do it at your own house.
