Changing Up The Guest Room

I've been on a mission lately 
to go through each room 
and freshen it up before Spring.  
When the mood strikes I take advantage 
of it and get moving.  
With the new Drexel furniture 
down in the basement guest room 
I have a new excuse to redecorate! 
As if I ever need one...
I just made some small changes 
but it took the whole room in a new direction.
I kept the all white bedding 
but added a few new 
blue and white pillows from Home Goods.  
While I was there I spotted these gorgeous 
Ralph Lauren lamps.  
I really didn't want to splurge 
so I left them there overnight.  
I was talking to Mr. Beaux over dinner 
that night and I told him how much I loved them.  
He encouraged me to go back and get them.  
Well, you don't have to tell me twice!
Aren't they just fabulous!  
And the best part is that they could 
go in any room in the house, 
not just a bedroom.  
I don't have two nightstands in this room 
so I put one on the dresser.  
Whenever you have a chance 
to buy two matching lamps 
go ahead and pull the trigger.  
You will always be glad that you did. 
 I also found these curtains at Home Goods.  
I am not completely sold yet 
but I hung them up to debate 
whether I will keep them or not.  
I have another bedroom where they will work also...

The shelf in the room got a little makeover.  
Much simpler this time around.  
I think that the room looks bigger and brighter!  
Thanks for all of the suggestions 
on cleaning the new furniture.  
I happened to have some Murphy's Oil Soap 
and it worked beautifully 
to remove the grungy fingerprints.  
Thanks again whoever gave me that tip!  
Hope that your week is off to a great start! 

Thanks for following along...
Until Next Time,
Beaux R'eves,

Beautiful room! Love the curtains but I think I'd like the small stripes at the top.

Michele M./ Finch Rest said...

Cindy, this room looks so fresh and wonderful!
Well done, ma'am!

I think the curtain rod needs to be a little higher and I agree with Pat about the small stripes on top.

I also like the drapes but I agree that the small stripes need to be at the top, they need to be hung higher and need to be left hanging straight.

The room looks beautiful. I am a blue and white lover so this really appeals to me! I have a blue and white guest room and opted for solid blue cut=rtains. Mainly cause the quilt and pillows have a pattern.

Cynthia said...

Pretty touches. Don't you just love Home Goods??


Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

So pretty! Love all the blue and white.

Love your make-over. I redid a dresser for my daughter and it was similar to yours. I stained it a little darker then sprayed the knobs a pewter color. It updated it and she loved it. I like the curtains but if it was my house I might try raising the rod and making it wider then hang the curtains straight down. That seems to be the style now. Hope your company enjoys your new room Carol

Will you share where you found the white lattice mirrored frame on the dresser? Your new lamps are stunning. You'll always be glad that you bought them.
