I am one busy woman, designer, and mom. Throughout the craziness of the year, it is not uncommon for my guest room to look like a storage closet.
I live in an older home with limited closet space, so this room houses my second closet. It is also home to part of my library and where I store my luggage and extra blankets.
So lets lake a peak at my disastrous before space.........
Now for the fun part!! Dressing up that clean space!
This is a great opportunity to change things up. Add some new art, bedding, accessories. Make the space feel new and inviting.
The Bed as the center piece
The bed in the guest room is the easiest place to dress up a room without much expense. I put a vairety of pillows tohether and even added a personal touch with some pillows I hand painted.
I also placed all my extra guest pillows behind the decorative ones to store them while they are not in use. It created a vary luxurious feeling. That with my lovely little iron bed from www.Horchow.com and I have a guest retreat that I want to escape to.
