Be our guest | Guest Bedroom Renovation

    Finally, our first completed room in the house , the guest bedroom! Don't ask me why I decided to complete this room before the master bedroom? Guests come first I suppose !
 I wanted to transform this cookie cutter bedroom into a hotel-esque retreat! Keeping it super minimalistic , of course. I'm all about low maintenance ( aka: less cleaning ). The room is actually pretty small so I knew I wanted to lighten the walls to maximize the visual space as much as possible. The paint color we chose is perfect soft hue of grey, Paper White by Benjamin Moore. Don't let the name fool you!


   Talk about lighting up the room , we went with these gorgeous oversized diamond lamps. I wanted the lighting to make a statement but not shrink the room and these were a perfect fit! Since they are crystal you can see threw them, catching the light at every angle thus making the room feel more open!
1STOPLighting Sea Gull Chandelier 
 The Chandelier was one of the first pieces I picked out. I loved how simple and transitional it was but at the same time gave a modern vibe with the structure and shape of the shades. The best of both worlds.

If I were to give one piece of advice it would be "don't to be afraid of a bare wall" . I think leaving empty wall space can make just as much of an impact as a piece of art! I decided to focus on the wall adjacent to the window to balance out the room , as far as art goes. Instead of going with the traditional framed art , gallery wall or canvas I went with three frame ledges from Ikea. Perfect for books, magazines, art bits and framed pieces.  Now I have interchange art! Practical , check! Functional, check! Pretty , double check!

Ashley HomeStore Linon Clayton Headboard 
The headboard was a steal of Ashley HomeStore. Originally I was looking at extra-tall headboards ,like the one in our Master,  but they can be pretty steep in price and I was in the market for something a little more budget-friendly. The ----- headboard from Ashley was the perfect color and tufting so we installed headboard risers to give the illusions of a taller headboard... can you say #moneysavinghomehack ?! This is such a simple trick that can save hundreds!

Instead of overwhelming this small space with color we decided to play with texture and keep things monochromatic in various grey tones. The faux fur throw at the end of the bed is a favorite , swoon!
