Well, I promised you a big room reveal once the guest room was all decorated, and though it’s a few days late, voila!
Yep, that’s the bookshelf I so obsess over. It’s sitting against an angled wall that wasn’t there 3 months ago, which is still blowing my mind. We built walls! The closet door still has enough clearance to open to at least a 90 degree angle.
My dad’s easel and a painting he did of Smith Civil War Memorial in Fairmount Park.
Look, Sam! I made the bed! The linen duvet is so incredibly soft. An old window I bought at Pier 1 a year ago, securely hung so it doesn’t come crashing down and kill our guests. Death by faux-antiques.
A map of Paris my brother gave me years ago, finally framed and hung. Jennifer wrote about the same print here!
I haven’t decided on whether or not to hang curtains yet, because the room gets such amazing natural light (a rarity in the house), and I’m still picking out some more art and narrowing down candle choices (important business), but I’d say it’s finished. I love hanging out down here and find the space so inspiring (if a little heartbreaking). We bought flooring for the other room, on the other side of the french doors, and are going to install them this weekend. Well, not me. Aside from decorating, I am not good for much. Then all we have to do is paint and move the furniture that’s been taking up real estate in the bedroom all piled up. Baby steps!
