Go big or go home. That’s the motto of this post.
Well, really we’re already home so I guess that phrase makes absolutely no sense at all. But anywho…
We went BIG in the guest bedroom! With art that is.
If you ever have a large blank wall that you’re, well… drawing a blank on, hang a massive piece of statement art when in doubt. True story.
You should have seen Robert and me huffing and puffing to haul this gigantic thing up our twisting flight of stairs. Totally worth it. (And no four letter words were used. Aren’t you proud?) #survivors #welivedtotellthetale
I can’t promise the word “pivot” wasn’t used a time or two though. (Betchya a cupcake you can’t name that TV show.) 😉
I legitimately designed this entire bedroom around this piece of art… because how could I not? I mean… look at it!
I remember my grandmother had a painting a lot like this one hanging at the end of her hallway. It was one of those paint-by-numbers canvases of a vase of flowers that she did herself, and this piece reminds me so much of her.
I have no idea what happened to that painting after she passed away when I was 12, but seeing this in our home now makes me smile.
As for the rest of this space, we hauled in two of these round end tables as inexpensive nightstands for this tight space.
The white along with the brass on the lamps pop perfectly against the deep green curtains we hung up a few weeks ago.
(I plan on swapping out that wooden picture frame later though because I’m pretty sure our guests don’t want us staring at them in their sleep. Haha!)
These chunky knit white pillows I plopped on the bed are perfect for fall and winter too, but I don’t plan on redecorating this space after the cold season is over.
I added the ruffle skirted bedspread set for a romantic vibe. It was only $55 for a queen!
And I’m a firm believer that every bed should have a throw blanket tossed at the end of it. Majorly digging the texture of this gray blanket. It’s not as warm as I thought it would be, but it’s so gorgeous that I don’t even care.
I always teeter that fine line between farmhouse, traditional, and modern, and this Walmart collection definitely feels like it ticks all of the boxes while still being reasonably priced.
So now we’re just waiting on a rug, a couple of finishing touches on the other side of the room, and this space is finished. If it looks this good now, I can’t wait for the day when we can refinish the original hardwood floors currently hiding underneath the carpet.
Can you believe this space looked like this a few weeks ago?
And now this is the current view. Lawdy lawdy, it’s pretty!
