Come Visit

• 04 May 2009

























We recently finished creating a little guest bedroom...finally! While we love our Aerobed dearly, it's nice to have a more permanent place to sleep our guests. The room is tiny, and only holds the furniture you see here, but I say as long as there is a bed, you're good to go. I tried to create a hotel-like, gender-neutral space for the family and friends who visit (please come!).

Like always, we furnished this room with lots of budget finds. Here are my sources:

Upholstered Headboard: Target...can you believe it? It received excellent reviews online, so we took the plunge. I love it, especially because it was only $200.

White Sheets: TJMaxx/Homegoods. This is my favorite place for well-priced, high-thread-count sheets...we're talkin' $50 or less for 600 TC+.

White Duvet Set: a now-defunct bargain warehouse called Lucky Aces :( From now on I'll hit Homegoods for stuff like this.

Throw/Quilt: IKEA

Lamp: also a Lucky Aces find...

Nightstand: I spent months trying to find a nightstand that I liked, that was in my budget, and fit the tiny space next to the bed. After coming up with zippo I decided to use one of my spare kitchen stools that I bring out for cooking classes. Oddly enough, I like it...a lot actually. Sometimes it's all about using what you have!

Art: a new Chad Wys aquisition. He was such a trooper on this custom piece. I named the size I needed for the space, sent him the swatch of the wall color (as well as a link to the throw on IKEA's website), to ensure everything looked the way I envisioned. Once again, he did not disappoint. His pricing is incredible and I encourage everyone to snatch up a little piece from Chad before he hits the big time :)

Not pictured is a large mirror on the opposite wall to create the feeling of a larger space :)

Beautiful! That is the kind of room I love. It's simple and clean, but it has a great personality.

Wow...I love it all, esp the painting. What size did you ask him for?

emily said...

Oh wow, I love it all! The headboard looks so pretty, I wouldn't have thought it would fit in that space but it looks so great. I love it!

Leslie said...

Love the lamp... I have been looking for one like that! If anyone knows of a good priced lamp similar... please pass the word along! :)

Is the stool from Sundance? I'm dying for a similar stool but am looking for a less expensive option than the Sundance stools. May I ask where the stool came from?

Thanks much!

Anna said...

that looks sooo great! you're so cool =) and i think the Chad link is one of the greatest things you've shared - i am definitely going to get something from him, thank you! i didn't look closely at it when i was over, but the painting in your living room with the turqoise seemed to really make your space.

This would be a lovely place to stay. One day I hope to have a guest room, but for now my college age sister does not mind the couch:)

so fresh and clean... i'm sure you will have people lined up at the door now:)

Heather said...

Steph! I'm glad you finally found a nightstand! What a great idea. I am gearing up to redo all the bedrooms in our home, and finishing a brand new one for the girls in the basement. Thanks for all the inspiration here, it will be put to good use!

Molly, the chair is actually from Sundance but I purchased mine at the Sundance Outlet. I am lucky to live quite close to the one and only :) if you look carefully at one of the legs, you'll see why it was at the outlet...

Becky said...

Mmm i love this room. I have a guest room i need to decorate and this is exactly what i had in my head!! Thank you for all the purchase information. It is so simple which i love...

Nora said...

i love the feel of that sweet space--very welcoming, cozy, and just plain dreamy. we're headed to SLC in ten days for a much needed vacation to see my sister. if only i knew where you lived so i could pop on in and we could grab a pastry at les madeleines:)

A very nice, gentle oasis any guest should feel happy to sleep in. Great work, Steph! I'm glad the painting works for you;)
