Here's where we began ...
Crazy how much darker and smaller the space looks in the before photos, huh? Some crisp white linen drapes and bright, coordinated bedding later, and it's a whole different world in there!
That Greek key on the curtains and this embroidery detail on the bedding just make me so very happy. Sometimes it's the small things ...
These photos were taken at a couple of different junctures over the course of the project, so you may notice some variations in the furniture, wall art, styling, etc. You'll also recognize the bed from the original master bedroom. When I designed and made the luxe tufted silver bed for the master we decided we could definitely re-purpose the old bed in the guest room.
Those very pretty blue and white ginger jar lamps were such a great find from Lamps Plus. I don't think I will ever tire of a classic blue and white color scheme. You just can't miss with it!
If you know me at all by now then you know that I of course went out hunting for vintage pieces to re-do for this space. My favorite combo is the flea market desk that I had lacquered in a bright coral orange and paired with a vintage windsor chair (I can't find a "before" shot of the desk, but here's the chair when I first found it at Hernandez Furniture.)
Another satisfying makeover was the dresser I found in a no-name junk shop on Sunset in Silverlake, which got a fresh coat of white lacquer paint and some brass ring pulls and suddenly looks like a completely different animal ...
So there you have it. From a dark and lackluster back bedroom to a light-filled, energized, and inviting guest room. Happy Monday!
