New Addition to the Guest Room

Last week I shared with you my first attempts at decorating our guest room.  I'm using a bright, colorful color palette of orange and aqua in an effort to inject some life and energy into the space.  And because lamps and bedding in those colors is what I already had! :)


If you missed it, the room started like this:


And so far, with the furniture rearranged and nightstands moved from the master.


I popped in to Z Gallerie during the week and brought home a few goodies for the room.  A shiny, aqua decorative shell is a great accent for the bedside table.


And a funky aqua garden stool now adds more of the aqua color I wanted to incorporate. 



Since the room has lots of shiny, lacquered pieces (the stool, lamp, and decorative elephant), I wanted to add some texture and warmth, so I brought in this basket from West Elm.  I actually like relaxing in this room now, so it's nice to have some magazines on hand.  


I still have art (also a Z Gallerie find) and drapes to hang (I bought white, but now I'm thinking of an aqua and white patterned fabric), and a mirror for over the dresser.  I keep checking Home Goods for mirrors, but nothing yet.

  4. The Z Gallerie near my house in Austin is relocating and everything in the store is 30% off. Might be a bit of a drive from where you are in Austin, but could be worth it-- tons of stuff left. The guest room is coming along nicely :-).

  6. I love the color combination. I have a room to redo since my oldest son has left home for good. The thought is kind of overwhelming.
