Guest Room Makeover

I love the feeling when you finish decorating a room in the house. Right now our home is pretty plain. It is sill beautiful and I love it but I want to add my own personal touch to each room. Harper's nursery is almost perfect. Every time I walk in there it makes me happy. It is so soft, soothing, and adorable. Now that it is done it is time to move on to the next room. Originally I wanted to do our master bedroom first. But it is going to take the most mula. So I decided to go with the guest bedroom instead. Since we are on a tight budget I am going to try some DIY projects and shop at IKEA for most of the furniture.

In our last home I had the guest room decorated with a "shabby chic" look. I bought old antique furniture and sanded them, painted them, and distressed them. It looked incredible. But I decided to sell all of the furniture on Craigslist. It all sold in less than a week! And now I am left with just a mattress and box spring and a white room.

Last night I spent a few hours on Pinterest coming up with ideas. Here are a few of my favorite room ideas:

As you can see, I am all over the place. Which one do you like the best? What color scheme do you think works best in a guest bedroom? 


  1. Do the greenish one (House Beautiful picture)! And blog away about it. Our guest bedroom is a mess and I need inspiration!

  2. I like your clean and modern style. We also need to decorate our place, except we are so lazy :O(

  3. I like the orange and white with a monogrammed pillow. I'm not big into modern styles, though. I see the appeal and they are gorgeous but I am so traditional. I would love to see your home in more pictures. You may convert me over to be more trendy in my home decor!

  4. I love that last one and the dresser in the first picture. Also, I tagged you in my post today!

  5. Beautiful inspirations! Loving all these ideas! And by the way, you have the cutest blog layout! Im obsessed with the design!
    Just followed you too :)
