Hi Everyone! I cannot tell you how excited I am to be here today at one of my most favorite blogs, Sadie + Stella! It was such a tough decision to choose a favorite room to share with you all. My top two design philosophies? #1) Revel in the unexpected & #2) Vintage is a way of life. I think my guest bedroom is always one of my favorite rooms and is a perfect example of my philosophies come to life.
There's just something about a guest bedroom- it's a place to have a little fun, take some chances that you might not take in your master bedroom and just live in your design moment. Here is what my guest bedroom looks like today:
I painted the walls Farrow & Ball's Hague Blue. I love how cozy and cave-like it makes the room feel. During the day, this space gets a lot of natural light, so darker just seemed to work. The furniture is a mix of old and new. The bed is Ikea, the brown leather chair is vintage, and all of the artwork is thrifted vintage too!
The tumbling block chest is a vintage piece that I refinished myself. You can read about it on my blog here. I'm not going to lie to you, it took a lifetime to finish, but it's totally worth it to have something so unique and one-of-a-kind lovely in my home!
The white lamp and oil portrait are both thrifted, as well as the beginnings of my blue and white china collection. I love the juxtaposition of the modern block pattern on the chest and the Chinoiserie effect of the China together. So unexpected!
The bedding is Pottery Barn and the Suzani and Ikat pillows on the bed are from Homegoods (who doesn't LOVE that place?!)
The Mexican serape throw is vintage, as well as the suzani pillow on the leather chair. The portrait hanging on the closet is also vintage.
I just love the look of layered rugs, and these are two of my favorites in my whole house! The one on top is an antique Persian that was a Craigslist find, and the striped one on the bottom was $12 at Big Lots...who would have thought?! I turned two vintage snack tables into upholstered stools for the foot of the bed, you can read about it on my blog here.
I hope you enjoyed the tour of my guest bedroom. I cannot thank Lindsay enough for having me! I hope you'll stop by Of All the Fish in the Sea sometime and say hi! xx Kim
