Redesign & Repurpose

 “For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.”
‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭2:2‬ ‭

Welcome to the post that is all about guest bedrooms!  Why?  I’m glad you asked!  In a few weeks, we are beginning projects that I have put off for a while…and I am taking you, my readers, along for the entire journey!  So, what will this journey look like?  I have two guest rooms and both will be completely transformed!  The smallest will soon be a study/library…finally a permanent place for all of my many books!  I want to pull up the carpet and install hardwood, change the paint color, add built in bookcases on one wall, and finish it off with two comfortable reading chairs!  I can hardly wait!  The other guest room will get hardwood, new paint, new bedding and window treatments!  Whew!  Writing that makes me tired, and this may take a while to accomplish…but it’s time to get started… I have put it off way too long!  I hope you will follow along as we share updates.  Today I am sharing some inspiration from my Pinterest board “Beauty Sleep“!

I like the simple and refined style paired with the elegant chandelier.

The pale blue walls, blue window treatments, and the sunburst mirror are perfect for a guest room!

This is a pretty shade of green with a light touch of femininity!

Pale walls and traditional dark furniture are showstoppers in this space!

The vintage-style floral fabric gives a romantic appearance!

I have always loved canopies and this is so beautiful!

How can I not love a bedroom with built-in bookcases?

This would be perfect if there were more books!

The sunny yellow with blue accents is a lovely guest room!

Beautiful upholstered bed!

I don’t believe guests would ever want to leave this retreat!

Pale floral fabrics and blue walls pair in this dreamy bedroom!

I have always loved toile…and the leopard rug is quite a statement!

Books, toile wallpaper, and elegant lamps!

I gravitate towards a blue bedroom!

A spa-like space…calm and serene!

Twin beds are always great for a guest room!

Striking blue accents!

A peaceful retreat!

Red balanced with plenty of white for a gorgeous guest room!

A masculine feel with a touch of feminine fabrics!

If you were a guest, which bedroom would you choose?

      Karen, what are your plans for your guest room? We had a contractor supposed to be here today at 5, and he didn’t show or call…I am amazed that people apparently don’t need or want to work! I expected it, I worked with them for years as a decorator! Blessings, Pam

    Guest rooms are so fun because you don’t have to live in them and your guests only have to for a short time. You’ve got some beauties here! This next guest room for me I’m doing twin beds. I’ve never done that before so I’m looking forward to it.

    I’m tired just thinking of doing your projects! (Maybe because I’m headed outside to tackle some bush whacking and weed pulling!) Like you, my favorites are the rooms with books. They add such warmth to a room. I look forward to following your progress. Please share all the juicy details. 🙂

      Kim, thanks! We had an appointment set for 5 on Thursday for a contractor to come and look, he didn’t show or call! I just have never understood why people do that!

  3. Stacey says:

    Without a doubt I’d choose #9! Love the soft sunny yellow and the 4 poster bed.

    Thanks for sharing this gorgeous inspiration at Thoughts of Home on Thursday. 🙂

    How exciting to be starting a new project, or “projects” to be more exact! Can’t wait to see the results!

  5. Terry says:

    Great inspiration and hard to choose a favorite! Love the blue for a master (15), 17 and 20 for guests but really love them all.
