What is your favorite part of decorating? Is it the planning… the shopping… choosing the colors…
Although I love the whole process… my very favorite part of decorating is embellishing and putting together the final decor details that give a room personality and life.
Here is a look at some decor details in a guest bedroom I recently made over…

This room has a clean uncomplicated style, neutral colors and lots of room for my guests to move around. Here’s a look at corner of the room…


And the other corner…
The space between the windows was begging for a little art… so I hung a trio of plates…


Adding plates to the wall gives the room interest without adding clutter.The center plate hung in my dinning room. It belonged to my Aunt Kate. This is the only thing I have of my father’s side of the family.

Since the dining room is currently being made over, I thought the bedroom would be a safer place for this treasured old piece!

The beautiful brown transferware plates came from ENGLISH TRANSFERWARE, a fabulous Etsy shop owned by Nancy from  NANCY’S DAILY DISH.If you are looking for transferware, she probably has it!


I think I have plates in every room!

Did you notice where my sweater pumpkin finally ended up? I purchased a thick white knitted throw for the “switcheroo” chair and thought the pumpkin looks quite at home with it!

    I love the beautiful simplicity of this room Yvonne, it’s very calming and fresh. I love plates on the wall too, one of my guest rooms has a large display of plates over the headboard. Thanks so much for the inspiration, I thinks this may be the look I’m after for my master bedroom.

    You know the entire transformation of this room has been absolutely amazing – it looks PICTURE PERFECT – and I would stay there, um, for as long as you would allow!

    It is peaceful calm and beautiful – and one of your sweater pumpkins is perfectly situated right where it sits.

    Very well done, Yvonne. Looks stunning, really.

    My favourite part of decorating is when I walk into the room after it’s done and admire the fruit of my labour! Your room is a delight to the eyes. It has a serene look. The colour scheme is very relaxing and it is not cluttered. There is breathing space. I like that! I love those multi-paned windows and the window treatment you have chosen. The plates contribute this special touch thus providing just enough eye candy. Without doubt, one would sleep very well in this lovely environment you have created!

    i could just see myself as a guest in that room yvonne…you might never get rid of me!

    that sweater pumpkin looks right at home with your throw…i’m looking for one for my new sofa in the den but don’t want to spend big $$ b/c hubby will be using it and he’s kinda rough with things (LOL)…so the hunt continues. if i knew how to knit i’d make one but i’ve never learned how to knit.

    hope you are having a wonderful week.

    I enjoy the planning stages of decorating any room, but I’m with you – adding those final details and seeing everything finally come together is by far the best part. You certainly pulled all those final details together perfectly, because your guest room is awesome!
