(My Main Guest Bedroom) in progress......

As you see below, I've been working on the main guest bedroom & ever since I wrote about Michelle's bedroom from Rubie Green - I wanted a brighter & sunnier-looking room for my guests! I bought the headboard fabric & my guy helped to upholster it. We painted the walls a bright white by Behr to bring in more light) & it worked! I chose this little side table with mirrored glass & still haven't fully decided what to place on it yet. One thing I am struggling with is what artwork to place (if at all) over the headboard....hmmm. I was thinking of a variety of small frames in clusters, like 5-7 of them. Any ideas?? In the meanwhile - have a HAPPY 4TH of July weekend!

  3. I've neglected the guest bedroom because it's also looked at as the spare room, but it will finally have a guest in it next month. Yours looks beautiful. I really need to get to work on mine

  6. The bedroom looks great!

    As for suggestions above the bed, with your side table being mirror glass, having a cluster of different size mirrors in white frames or no frames might work.

  8. Nice work! The room looks so refreshing, feels so welcoming.

    An idea for artwork is to put a mix of frames with no pictures, like the one you purchased for your portrait illustration couple of weeks ago. Another idea is to paint some portraits, you have a wicked style! Or hang the portraits along with some empty frames.

  9. Jen! You've outdone yourself. This room is stunning. Your guests will feel so spoilt.

    I do need to have a word with you... You've single handedly made me obsessed with yellow.

    Oh boy!

  13. I like the before AND the after. Great job on both counts.

    I don't think you need to have anything over the bed but if you want something, a asymetrical collection of mirrors would be lovely.

  16. Oh my what a transformation. White walls are the best and I really love that yellow!

  17. It's looking fantastic and the white has really made it light. I think some small pieces of art would look great above the headboard or what about one of your paintings?

  22. Looks so fresh! Reminds me of spring time with the first streaks of sunshine :) What kind of headboard was that to begin with? DIY aswell? Would be great to see a demo on here of projects.

  32. I love the yellow!!! What a great retreat!

  33. i love this room! great job so far :) let's see, i think you should do some sort of cool round mirror above the bed...i think a mirror would keep the space open and bright, instead of lots of small frames, which might take away from the cool headboard fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  34. ALOT OF you have mentioned mirrors or a large mirror over the bed. I like the idea....but am more inclined to place smaller frames. Sometimes i feel hesitant placing a large mirror over someone's head....make sense? ha!
    I am still deciding though...
    Thanks!

  40. oh! I am so excited to see the candle holders!! :)

    you are really inspiring, as I am often scared of yellow from some reason. I should take a leap.

  41. Jennifer, you have, what we call here in Brazil "mãos de fada" or fairy hands. Both, before and after, are beautiful. kisses Lucila

  44. I really like the white walls - so bright and airy... and I love your new pillow shams and blanket! Headboard looks fab too... what an undertaking!

  45. If you want more than one piece:

    1) a gilt mirror... or just some kind of mirror/s.
    2) larger art work, light in palette. Lots of smaller pieces may end up, even if they're lighter, creating a darker feel. But, um... there's no WAY I qualify as a pro in this.

    I like the yellow diamond pattern.

    How about a bed net? You could even build a valence type thing to go over the bed to hold the curtains/ gauzey material.

    One suggestion, how about a lamp shade like this: http://www.lampsplus.com/Products/Scallop-Bell-Creme-Lamp-Shade-10x16x15-Spider__05950.html
    I think it would look a bit more updated.

    I love the colors you've chosen, it looks good!
