Today, we’re celebrating another milestone. It’s guest room reveal: before and after! If this is your first time visiting the site, I’m thrilled to welcome you. Thank you for stopping by! Fifteen weeks ago my husband and I had purchased our first house which is a clean slate. The deal has provided us with ample opportunities to decorate and organize not just functional but also to have an in-depth visual experience.
Since it’s a four bedroom/ three baths house, I decided to take the one-room-at-a-time strategy to avoid the overwhelm. I considered the color flow of the entire home and applied the odd numbers rule of decorating while showcasing our style and personality. For this guest room, I used Sherwin Williams [SW 6255 Morning Fog] paint. Using this paint color, I’m able to incorporate the accent items with different colors to lighten up the room.

When we bought the house, 90% of the entire floor was covered with carpet. I knew then that not only the carpet has a need for replacement, but also new carpeting isn’t the best option for us. After weighing our options, we decided to go with the hardwood flooring. It’s indeed a grand investment which pays off since it adds value to our home!

The guest room is cozy, and yet it creates an illusion of a spacious room. For this project, I started with the queen bed position which as you can see takes up most of the space. Then, I added two end tables with lamps. On the other end, I placed a 4-drawer dresser and a mirror as well as a metal fur accent stool. Once I have these items set, I added the curtain, area rug, and accent items. I applied the odd numbers rule of decorating as you have probably already noticed. Overall, I’m pleased with the outcome, and I’m ready to tackle the next project on my list.
