Our guest bedroom has been completed for a while, but I didn’t have time to take pictures and put them together until today. I used new and old furniture that we already had to fill up space. I am sharing the details with you in this post.
Read on to see how everything turns out!
“Home decorating is a passion of mine, and I am so passionate about making my home as sweet as it can be because you know that the “Home Sweet Home” phase makes me want to feel like I am living the sweetest life in my sweet little home every single day.”
Our house was built in 1985, and nearly everything here was original. We purchased this home after searching for over a year and finally found the one we felt like home. My husband and I saw a lot of potentials and loved the house when we first walked in. Before we moved in, we painted the inside white, including the floor. Now three years later, we got the hang of what we were doing and decided to give our home more love by dressing her up to a personality we feel that she is—sophisticated but yet down to earth. Sound like me a little?
We are now working room by room and will be sharing with you what our projects turn out in the later posts here on allaboutgoodvibes.com.
In this blog post today, I am sharing with you every corner in our guest bedroom/ in-home studio, and if you haven’t seen my inspiration behind my guest bedroom yet, make sure you head over to this post to find out.
Before I started redecorating this room, I needed a visual plan, so I created one. As you already know, I am a very visual person, so I first have to work on my mood board, where I used Pinterest to put together my vision before I decide on what I want. For this room, I was going for nature, calm, and relaxation feels. I picked out a lot of neutral and earth tone elements and accents to represent those emotions.
I can’t put my finger on the theme of this room, French Boho, maybe?but I would say it speaks out my personality and the house personality 100%.
If you are following me on Instagram (@CuratedByMolly), you might have seen so many photos of the same mirror selfie I took from a corner of this room. I use this room to workout in, take pictures for my blog, e-course, and business. I also use this room to relax and unplug when I need one. It’s a guest bedroom, but as of now, it’s my in-home studio.
The Vanity Corner
Right when you walked in on the left-hand side, I set up a vanity corner using a heritage chest made in Boston more than 70 years ago. We got the piece from my father-in-law. What we did with it was painting it all white as we want everything to be more of a lighter and brighter feel here in this room.
My vanity looks somewhat organized here as I only put what I normally use on it. On top of the chest, I put the gold Gleaming Primrose mirror I got a few years back to give that elegant, sophisticate, and vintage vibes to the room.
As you can see in the images, I have a lot of seashells and porcelain elements. I am currently in love with shells and pearls so I ordered a few new decoration pieces like this Seashell Accent Lamp to fill up space. I also got two new pleated porcelain vases that go well with the crown molding of the room and the fluted side table I have.
We put together this DIY closet as we want it to be very simple and easy to access. You can check out my DIY Closet under $100 to see the before photo and how we did it. I try my best to keep everything organized here and again only put what I need to wear in the next two weeks. The rest of my clothes and shoes are located in our closet in the master bedroom.
The Reading Corner
This corner is opposite of the door and has the window right next to it which makes a perfect corner for reading. We got the chair and the side table from my parents-in-law. They didn’t use them so we decided to upcycle and they perfectly match with our french-boho theme. We didn’t change anything, only cleaned them and wiped them down.
Next to the chair I have a gold shell wall hook, that I can hang a dress or bags like shown in the above photos.
Adding a modern and feminine touch with a line art throw pillow to complete this corner.
For our bed, we took the bed frame out and only have the mattress on the floor. I got the round velvet pillow from Urban Outfitters. My white linen blend sheet set is from Target. The rest of the bedding is from H&M; brown washed-linen covers, and light beige satin bedspread.
For the side table I picked the fluted drum table as its height isn’t as high and fits perfectly in this corner. I have the Ceramic Table Lamp that’s featuring a sculpted base in a raw finish with dual side handle ringson in this corner as well.
To finish this guestroom with my personal touch, I hung up my painting above the bed. I named it “On The Table” as I actually painted it on my dining room table not because it’s a drawing of what’s on the table. 🙂
