Guest Bedroom Design Update

Guest Bedroom...The Finishing Touches...

The last time I showed you the guest bedroom I had not hung any pictures. Here you go...I added two prints and the room now looks finished, though I suspect I will continue to tweek it from time to time. Original post link...(Designing a Guest Room)

Here is the four poster bed...with no print.
I have been reluctant to put pictures over a bed because in a design class it was impressed upon us that a picture will detract from the bed. IF you have a great bed...do not detract from it with hanging a picture over it. Well, I have gone with that in the master bedroom because we have a large/high headboard.It looks great without anything over the headboard.  In that case a print would detract. But, in this guest bedroom with a smaller headboard...I just felt that the room needed a print. 

I chose this hunt scene print. I have a few hunt scenes, but this print and frame had the best size and scale for the bed. 

I have several hunt scenes that I brought from our larger home. I put a couple in the hall bathroom at this new house...the one with the equestrian fabric shower curtain I made a few months ago. (click here for equestrian fabric shower curtain)

I really piled on the pillows in this room. I had them in various places around the house...but decided to mix them on the bed for a finished look. I love the white with black soutache trim.

I added one of hubby's prints over this chest. (He has collected civil war prints for years...mostly of just two artists. He is also working on a book from that time period. ) I pulled the crackle vases from another spot in the house and they look good with the colors in the print. 

I purchased this gold piece in Lexington a few years ago. I have a matching one in the master bedroom. I originally bought them to go on shelves on each side of a fireplace. 

If you missed the previous post (original post)...here is another look at the window treatment that I had made in Lexington at Interior Yardage. It is a P.Kaufman fabric.

Here is the bed layered up and ready for its first guest...This bed has the same memory foam mattress as the master. It offers a wonderful night's sleep.

Other than a maybe adding a rug to the room...I am ready to say that this room is done!  

I will be working on the other front bedroom a little in the future.  The furniture and wall paint are done. I have put a few prints in the room plus son's college diploma on the walls. (This is his room when he visits.) I have an antique Windsor chair in the room that once belonged to hubby's maternal grandfather and grandmother. I will show you pictures when I have it "just so."

Thanks for visiting today.

Until the next time,


Just FYI, in case you are interested in the wall paint.
