Good day, mates! How have you been? The previous couple months have felt like a blur as I settle into my new job during the weekdays and perform on our dwelling place through the weekends. That explained, I eventually have an exciting reveal value sharing in this article on the weblog: our guest bedroom! I created it my mission–just as the yr started off–to rework the area so it more accurately displays my evolving style. In January, on 1 of these impossibly snowy times, I lined the walls of the room in a new coat of paint: Benjamin Moore’s “Palladian Blue”. The coloration reminds me of sea glass, the excellent relaxing color for a guest bed room, and the inspiration for it came from the Parlor Textiles print on the toss pillow and chair seat. Elsewhere in the space, components of gold, white and a touch of oxblood combine for a palette I seriously love. The mattress, an antique observed for a mere $60 on Craigslist, replaced a utilitarian metallic frame. Its body grounds the gentle partitions and even lighter trim. While choosing up the bed, the vendor also had a stunning bamboo etagere for sale and, when I heard the rate, I could not resist adding it to our haul. It was $10! The bedside tables, which had been ordered as an unfinished pair from Ebay, took without end to settle on. I searched superior and small for an choice that complemented, instead than competed, with the other furnishings. I painted the tables with a coat of BM’s “White Dove” (the same shade we are working with in our dwelling place) and a finish coat of liming wax. Atop the tables sit a pair of turned lamps that I found out in a Greenwich, CT consignment retail store for $40 for the pair. A single of the primary explanations I didn’t share this place prior to now: the seagrass rug from Ballard was on backorder for almost 2 months. I am glad we waited for the reason that I completely adore it. The collection of vintage mushroom prints that cling in excess of the mattress may perhaps search familiar–they’ve hung in our guest bedroom considering that our previous condominium. Here is the bamboo etagere, which sits amongst the room’s two home windows. I really like its mottled finish. Reverse the mattress sits the ticking stripe skirted desk that Mom and I worked on a couple years ago. It nonetheless appears to be like refreshing and I will not see myself discarding it anytime soon. On leading, the thrifted oxblood lamp works well towards the blue-eco-friendly walls. (all via Meet up with Me in Philadelphia) This coming weekend, my parents will be visiting and will be the first attendees in our officially-total visitor bedroom. I am happy to have a focused space for our particular guests that I’m also very pleased to demonstrate off.
