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.
