In my mind, I have a ton of ideas for our guest room overhaul! The only things to (probably) stay are the headboard, carpet and wall color- everything else must go! Our current wall color is Benjamin Moore’s yarmouth blue, which I love! It is a coastal blue, with gray undertones at different times of the day. It is a calm, soothing color for the bedroom and one that is easy to work with. When thinking about wall art, I remembered the beautiful white shelves from pottery barn I have been meaning to find a home for, and I think it’s in this space! They were a wedding gift from a dear friend, and I think they pop against the blue walls.
So, I started to “shop” around my home, trying to find pieces to fit on the shelves. I lucked out and found this adorable elephant statue, (also a wedding gift) that when faced toward the room entrance, is supposed to bring good luck! My mom generously gave me the three gold colored mirrors (thanks, mom!) The photo with the purple matting (I will change out/paint the matte) was also a gift- it’s a reminder of the time when Italy used the lire as money, instead of the euro. I love it! The heart shaped photo is my husband and I, which we’ve had forever. And the crystal candle holder and small vase are from Target! All in all, this first room change hardly cost anything!!
I like to layer when decorating, to add depth and dimension to the space. I wanted to hang some art, to free up room on the shelf, thus adding more dimension. This is still a work in progress, and much more to come on the room in the future!
What would you add/change to the shelves?!?
