Living 5+ hours away from family and most of our friends means that I get to play hostess quite often, which I LOVE! When we have guests staying with us, their comfort and needs come first - even if that means foregoing the last doughnut at breakfast. (sacrifices, am I right?) Once we started the process of buying our house I knew the guest bedroom would be one of the first rooms I'd want to tackle. My goal was to make the guest room comfortable, inviting, and elegant.
When I found out we were having visitors ONE WEEK after moving in, I went into crazy decor shopping mode. Unfortunately for our first timers, none of the pieces that I ordered for the guest room arrived in time (yes, I hear the tiny violins playing...). Shout out to Patrick and Kara for ignoring the mess and boxes ev-ery-where!
My inspiration, like most, comes from Pinterest, Houzz, and anything Joanna Gaines lays a finger on. Similar to my personal style, I love mixing feminine, classic and edgy pieces together throughout our home. With the bedroom walls being gray, I knew I wanted to keep the bedding light, airy, and elegant. I found the metal headboard from Joss & Main and instantly new I wanted to revolve every other piece around it. The mixed metal and wood bedside tables add some great color and texture. The jute rug was also a must for me - it adds a lot of warmth and even more texture to the whole room. Since it's a neutral color, it will be easy to change the color accents in the future, which is a plus. We still need to add some art and pieces to the walls, but I'm happy with how it has turned out so far!
My in-laws recently came to visit and the room was put to the test. Before they arrived, I cut fresh roses and added them to mason jars to go on both bedside tables. Adding flowers is a great way to add even more femininity and instant decor to the room. Plus, nothing says comfortable, inviting, and elegant like fresh flowers.
