I’ve been really dragging my feet with this guest room. It has been almost done for months and honestly every time I go to take pictures of it someone is in it! The newest finished project (well, sorta) here at StoneGable is a room that was my son Christopher’s. Again we gutted the whole thing… ripped out carpet, installed new hardwood floors, painted the entire room, upcycled or shopped the house for all the furniture. And bought new bedding! Abby, Chris’ wife of two years was my inspiration for this room.
Because it really still is Chris’ and now Abbys’ room when they are here I asked sweet Abby how she would like me to decorate it. She is a chippy, shabby chic, country, vintage, no-pink, burlap and texture kind of a girl. So I chose a color palette of soft blues, whites with a whisper of gray and some very neutral tones. The newest room to be made over now has a relaxed, sweet dreams feel.
This is one of 5 bedrooms at StoneGable and the smallest of them all. It has a very cozy feel with lots of light coming from the double windows.
The walls are Silver Mist by Valspar. It’s a really soft comforting color. A little more blue than gray, which is perfect for me. I like gray… I just could not live with it.
Bobby made the headboard out of some old local shutters we picked up at my favorite local antique haunt, THE ANTIQUE VILLAGE OF STRASBURG. We cleaned them up and sealed them and Bobby put them together and bolted them to the wall.
The white cover, white pillow shams, blue and white striped duvet and blue and white striped pillow shams came from our local Pottery Barn Outlet. The pillow with the blue and white stylized floral print came from HERITAGE LACE and the “OUR NEST” came from a local barn sale.
I found this great vintage looking mirror at my local Pottery Barn Outlet (on sale) and the robes (on super sale) hanging on it too. I also found these light gray geometric curtains at the PBO! Yes, I like the PBO!
The big basket is for tossing all the throw pillows in when my family or guest are ready to crawl into bed. It came from HomeGoods. I like HomeGoods too!
Can you see the beautiful sign with the words to the hymn TAKE MY HEAR AND LET IT BE? I won that in a giveaway! YEA!!!
A rattan bench with a white coverlet and some decor books sits at the end of the bed. I think I’ll paint this bench a softer color to work with the room! Probably Annie Sloan Paris Gray.
This comfy chair came from Joss & Main. It was in the foyer, but I like it better in this room! I just couldn’t help adding a couple of pillows to it!
I’ve had this chest of drawers for about 30 years and it was really a mess. It’s amazing what a couple coats of paint and new hardware can do!!! TOTALLY different look! If you would like to see how I transformed this once ugly duckling and step-by-step directions, click HERE.
I still have a few pieces of art to hang on the wall and I’m looking for a new rug for the room. Are we ever REALLY done decorating a room? I think rooms should keep evolving! And I’m sure this one will too!
