Happy almost-weekend, lovebugs! For a short week, it sure has felt long, am I right?! The kids are already talking about how late they plan to sleep-in this weekend! Unless of course Little Miss has a sleepover, in which case, you know there’s more giggling than sleeping going on!
And even though she has her own colorful room, she and her friends jump at the chance to stay in the Guest Room! I can’t say I blame them…it’s kind of my favorite spot in the house right now.
We’re not quite done, but with the addition of the wallpaper, things are clipping right along!
I’ve been a huge fan of this Serena & Lily ‘Feathers’ wallpaper for years, and was so excited to find a space in our home to use it. I know wallpaper feels like a big commitment (as opposed to paint), but I’ve yet to regret any of my wallpaper choices! Nor have I grown tired of them.
So far, this room is the perfect mix of splurge and save, with the majority of the cost in dressing the bed. But since guests (typically our dearest friends and family) will be the ones sleeping here, it’s a good place to splurge a little.
But you know I still put my favorite bed sheets (under $30!) on both beds. They’re officially on every bed in the house now!
We carried the wallpaper into the adjoining vanity area, too. I’m undecided if I’ll paint the cabinets a contrasting color, blue like the paper, or just leave them white. Thoughts?
We still need to choose a mirror and light in there, as well.
Still a few key things left to do, but there’s no question it’s already a totally different room, thanks to the wallpaper and pillows!
I still need to figure out the rug, window treatments, and overhead light. Plus decide what I want to put on the walls! Oh yeah, and the bathroom needs a mirror and lighting, but I’m thrilled with how far we’ve come.
Stay tuned for more updates as I have them. See you back here tomorrow for the first Dressing Room Diaries of the new year!
