Hello….taps on the mic…..anyone there? I am just coming out of the fog of international travel and boy it’s so hard!
Not to complain but we all got sick the night before coming home….so traveling with a bad cold made the experience suck. I don’t remember ever being this happy to be home…..said Dorothy as she clicked her ruby heels together.
Lord it will be a minute before I cross the pond again…..
More on my trip in the next post because I have to get it together in my head first…..:)
Before I left I had a small install….meaning a guest room “fluff”. I have been working with these clients for 2 years doing an extensive renovation and furnishing the whole house. When it gets down to the end….we had a guest room that just needed a small refresh…..as we kind of threw leftovers in there!
As you can see they had a good foundation….nice bed and lighting.
Changed out the coverlet to white and added new pillows and a throw. It just looks fresher now right?
When I found the blue and white lumbar pillow I was plain giddy over it!
A pretty basket on the bottom shelf of the nightstand helps fill empty space.
Opposite the bed is this Room and Board navy sofa. This area needed a little love also!
I love the mirror from HomeGoods as it helped to add some texture to the room! The floor lamp was from Crate and Barrel. I couldn’t do a coffee table as I had only about 2 feet from the end of the rug to the sofa….so that small white wood table was perfect!
Brought a little orange over to the couch.
I was lucky to find this piece of art because we all know HG’s art can be sketchy….It had a really pretty frame.
The vases were HG’s and the faux fig branch came from West Elm….
Takeaway….I put the mirror over the couch because I knew I could add color with pillows….the art over the console because I would need color there!
Takeaway…..Blue and white is always easy to find at HG’s. I try not to make it harder by sticking to colors that are easy to find especially in a pinch.
Takeaway….I bought like 25 pillows for this job because I wasn’t sure how things would go….so glad I did because some of the ones I thought would look good….didn’t. Come Prepared!
So there you have it! I am recovering….colds suck and if they can put a man on the moon why is there not a cure?
