One of the most wonderful things about moving out of our 1 bedroom apartment and into out 3 bedroom home is the extra available space to house and entertain our guests. With our families spending way too much time on an air mattress already, it’s only natural that our next project is creating a guest retreat.
Here’s how the space looked when we first moved in:
Not exactly guest retreat I had in mind. The room was actually a little girl’s room, hence the painted tree on the wall. If you look closely, you may even be able to see the leftover tack I couldn’t get down from the glow in the dark stars on the ceiling.
When I first started imagining how I wanted my guests to feel when in the room, the obvious thoughts of relaxation and hospitality entered my mind. I was immediately inspired by country cottages, bed and breakfasts, and vintage charm. Below are a few images of my inspiration:
Transforming this space is going to be so much fun! I‘ve already painted and have even stumbled upon a few great thrift finds which I can’t wait to implement in the room. Don’t be surprised if you catch me taking a quick nap in there when this transformation is complete!
Stay tuned to follow my progress!!
