Sometimes StoneGable feels more like a hotel than a home! We love company and have family and friends stay with us often. Our guest’s favorite room is this one. There is lots of space to move around and it has a clean uncluttered feel. We call it the J & J room because it was my daughter Jacqueline’s room when she lived at home. And when she and her husband Jonathan come to visit they stay here. Originally this room was wallpapered with pink and yellow and white hydrangeas. When Jacqueline got married I asked Jonathan how he would like this room decorated and he said earth tones, and houndstooth and leather. I wrote about the transition of this room and my daughter’s life HERE. So, I’m adding a few simple fall touches to our guest room…
This fall I am just hinting about fall! I’m not bringing the whole hay wagon of decorations in and dumping it all over my home. For me, it’s not only easier, it suites my style more! Simple touches can often work better than holiday clutter too!
Like adding a simple pillow. This pillow cover came from Hymns And Verses Etsy Shop. Beautifully made… I just love this verse! Perfect for the Harvest season!
The bed is made with covering in rich fall colors. I have a confession… I leave this bedding on most of the year. It works with this room! During the fall season I think the bedding works particularly well, don’t you?
I’m using a bed tray as a decoration in this room! When guests come the bed tray stays on the bed but it only holds magazines and books about our area. While the bedroom waits for family and guests the bed tray is called into duty as a fall vignette!
I shopped StoneGable to find things to top off the bed tray. Look for a tutorial this week on how to cover books with burlap! There are so many wonderful burlap fabrics now… some plain and many with fabulous designs! Covering books with burlap gives them a uniform, updated look! And it’s very easy to do!
The candle in the lantern is battery operated and gives off the nicest glow in the evening!
The other side of the room is simple and uncluttered. I keep a big basket in all of my rooms for pillows. I don’t want my guest wading around a room with pillows all over the floor.
When guest come the cart is filled with fluffy towels, water, essentials and goodies!
A white pumpkin in an urn decorates the painted nightstand! See, you don’t need to put a lot of effort in decorating! Take a lesson from me… do simple!!!!
This room won’t stay empty for long! I’m happiest when my guest rooms are filled. I might add a pretty potted Mum next to the chair… what do you think?
I’m making a few changes in this room this fall… and I’ll make sure to show you when I do!
