This room took longer than I had hoped, because with a little toddler to run after everything takes longer than anticipated. I am quite happy with how it turned out and I hope you like it too. A little info for you, my friend did not like the room and liked it better before.
In case you missed my continuing guest room story, here is a little recap. A couple of months ago, I went to housesit for a friend and he asked me to frame a picture and have a look at his guest room. Well, I gave it a makeover and here is the final product.
It all started with this picture, the Great Wave by Hokusai, that I wrote about here. To frame it, I chose a very simple white Ribba frame from Ikea but I chose the print as my color inspiration. I chose a natural paint color for the walls and decided to add colored accessories around the room. You can read all about my paint color decision making, here. I absolutely love the color and am now thinking about repainting our bedroom. You can read more about the paint color reveal here. Here is a picture of the print framed in the room with the new paint color.
And who can forget those great Dwell Studio pillows. I love the pattern and the crisp, dark navy on the white pillows.
I like how it blends with the paint color at times and at others, it is this bright large sunburst mirror that stands out and shines.
Here are some more pictures of the room.
I am still getting used to the ins and out of blogging, and getting used to snapping pictures. So, I apologize for the following picture. I forgot to take a before picture of the room and I remembered only when I was half way through painting and my camera died and the iphone was my only tool. Here is a before picture of the room.
And here is the room now. I hope you like it and I will share the run down of the cost with you tomorrow.
This week, I will be sharing the diy tutorial for the headboard and some more fun and easy projects. Hope you enjoyed the post and the room. Hopefully it was worth the wait.
