Imaginary guest bedroom redo.

Do you watch HGTV? 

We do…..regularly.  And regularly drool over pretty houses. 

Mr. Tim and I are quite the pair.  We both love HGTV, we both love projects, we both love design….etc. etc. etc.

We have been watching the new season of Design Star!  LOVE this show.  Who’s with me?  My favs right now are Karl, Kellie, Leslie and Mark.  In the episode last night they got to redo rooms in a bed & breakfast on the Jersey Shore!  How cool!  I would love to go stay there someday. 

Most of the rooms turned out awesome.  I loved the suite that they did!  Feel free to chime in if you watched the show…..  :)  I loved all those colors and patterns!

Well, while we were watching the show….Tim looks at me and says lets redo a room.  In all seriousness.  haha!  He is always ready to redo something.  Our guest bedroom has never been done.  It’s a catch-all room with a bunch of random junk.  The sad thing is….we have had many people stay the night there! ha!  So embarrassing.  Decorating an entire house takes time and lots of green!  I think we are going to set out to redo it on the absolute CHEAP!  It will be fun to see what we come up with. 

I decided to do a little web window shopping on Urban Outfitters.  They always have different things at good prices.  I like it. :)  I threw all these items together rather quickly….if I was really buying stuff….I would spend some more time really thinking about it.  Or just being ridiculously indecisive like I always am!

So here are some fun ideas of what I would love my guest bedroom to look like:

Some pretty patterned curtains to mix things up.

I think i will do this again but web window shop on Target, Pottery Barn, etc!  I also love finding things on Craigslist & thrifting. 

Are you redoing any rooms right now or have the design bug?

DON’T FORGET TO ENTER MY GIVEAWAY!!!!!!!!  I can’t wait to send someone a really fun package in the mail.  :o)

Hope your having a lovely day!

xo,

Amanda

I could seriously re do a room like every week! I always think of a new and different idea I want for a room. I really want to redo our master bedroom but Tony doesn't want me to spend the money because it's fine how it is-which I know-but it would still be fun :) i love all the stuff you picked out! So fun and cheery! I would totally come stay in your guest room :)

I love the yellow!
so bright and cheery!
you could pair it with tourquoise throw pillows and curtains!

Lauren said...

That would be an adorable room! And if you do that...I may come spend the night, just to be in a cute room! ha!

We're of course in the middle of doing the nursery, talk about stressful & so many decisions!

never, but now I definitely want to! And if someone could please box up all the above items and send them to me to decorate my apt, I would be most appreciative :)

love all of that inspiration! our guest bedroom right now is just my college room in our new house, ha. i'd love to spruce it up some but it is just not the top priority right now. i'm sure you'll find a way to redo it in a fun and thrifty way :)

I'm watching HGTV right now! So wish for a house of my own I could re-do!

I think you probably know that I am obsessed with HGTV :) My husband likes to mock the shows though :( I love your style by the way- that room would be really fun and cozy to stay in! Can't wait to see what you settle on!

CUTE!! I'm sooo behind on posts... going to check out your giveaway now. Love the decor you are dreaming off.. yummmmm!

ah, HGTV is so addicting. it makes me want to take a trip to home depot, which is just always a bad idea [for my bank account]. I'm new to your blog, and I love it.

HGTV used to be what my parents always turned on and i hated it. Now, its soooo good and fun to watch. They have really revamped things and its so much more modern and fresh rather than that cheesy stuff they used to do!

Oooo, that would be one gorgeous room! We just did the nursery (obviously :)... but the next thing on my "to do" list is our bedroom. We still have completely random furniture in there... my old bed, his old dresser, another dresser someone gave us... I think it's time to get a matching set! :)

love your inspiration! I'm always up for re-doing a room :) of course we are working on switching the office to a nursery..that's been lots of fun...and I love the challenge of doing it on a dime!
