Do you know that happy feeling of going for a walk in the park during a perfect summer day, while enjoying your favourite ice cream?
That’s exactly what I was going for when I start designing our guest bedroom!
I just finished the whole makeover and I’m SO excited to share it with you! This room has been used for storage since we moved in (3 years ago!), and I couldn’t wait any longer to transform it into a space that our guests would enjoy spending time in!
Our whole house is painted in Quartz Flint 4 from Dulux, it’s a very fresh and calming grey. It’s also a great neutral that balances out beautifully all the bold colours we have around our home.
But I just can’t help myself and my obsession for wallpapers… So of course… just painting wasn’t enough for me! 😉
I started the whole scheme with the Faince Cornflower fabric from Designers Guild, I instantly fell in love with it… The gorgeous pink flowers against the blue background are the perfect combo for the vibe I was trying to create! So I didn’t think twice!!!
I made the headboard myself and it was super easy and quick to make! You can see my tutorial here.
As I wanted the headboard to really stand out and be the focal point of the room, I decided to go with the Parchment – Dianthus Pink wallpaper from Designers Guild, as it has a softly textured tonal effect, what makes it just the perfect backdrop!
I also went treasure hunting around our home and found some pieces that I already owned and could be incorporated into the room, like the small filing cabinet, the cushions, the little basket and the green planter. The light blue tray table was a find from TK Maxx, love it!
Like most of our rooms, I went for mismatched puddled curtains… I think they help to add personality into a space and they also give a sense of luxury! The curtain’s fabrics are from Designers Guild, the basket from Matalan and the vintage embroidered picture is a find from a charity shop!
The antique farmhouse chair is perfect for bringing in some warmth and also makes a great place for the guests to leave their bags on. On the wall, I hung these gorgeous chapati baskets that I found in an Indian shop for £2 each!!! I love their vibrant colours and beautiful texture!
The plates are my obsession from Anthropologie (can’t stop buying them!), the pendant light is from eBay and the white steel bracket is from B&Q.
My gorgeous little Frida usually stays in my office, and I thought it would be nice to bring her here for a short stay! She was a present from my super talented Instagram friend Manon. She is so adorable that I thought she deserved a close-up! Don’t you think?!
I’m beyond happy with this makeover, it’s exactly how I had in my mind! And I loved it so much that I slept there last night… And it was lovely! Yay!!!
Now we just need some guests!!! Anyone?!!
So… did you like it? Are you planning any makeovers soon? Let me know in the comments, I would love to hear it!
