After a 7 or 8 week break in the action, we finally finished the guest bedroom. And I am in love.
We still need to do a few things (buy a new linen duvet, assemble the dresser, hang artwork, hang curtains, install flooring and paint the room on the other side of the french doors), but it’s all come together exactly like I pictured. No, better! Especially when you consider where we started this summer:
To orient you, that post in the middle of the room is now directly to the left of the french doors from this angle, and the bed is in the same spot. It doesn’t even feel like the same room, let alone a room in a basement. I knew that adding white flooring and a coat of paint would do wonders. Remember the moodboard I made for the guest room? I’ve almost completely achieved it:
I put a check-mark over the paint color, but we actually ended up going with a color called “Polished,” which is the palest palest shade of light gray; it’s almost pure white. Other than that though, I did pretty well! I’ve changed my mind about that Restoration Hardware duvet set and am probably going to go with a less expensive option from IKEA (because, come on, I’m an IKEA addict).
It’s literally like a dream come true and I couldn’t be happier with it. I spent a good half hour down there yesterday just sitting there, smiling at the walls like a crazy person. I’ve warned Boyfriend that should we ever break up, I’m not leaving, I’ll just move into the guest bedroom. He thinks I’m joking. I fear he’ll have an opportunity to discover how serious I am when we begin to assemble to two-box monstrosity that is that 8-drawer dresser.
So how was your weekend?
