Our Little Guest Room

I just did a re-do on our little guest room! We have 5 bedrooms but this is our only guest room because the other rooms are being used as a office for hubby, my craft room, a music room and our master bedroom.
I do not have any blue in our home but always wanted to use it, so I used it in the guest room and guest bathroom.
I LOVE the Danish look of blue and yellow. Crisp and fresh.
My inspiration was the plate & linen, then I ran with it! The plate!

The Linen!
Enter!
Our ceilings in our home are 10 ft. high, so I have some tweaking still!


Love using vintage linens and crystal.
Vintage blue hankies add to a not so blue lamp!

I love this picture! It reminds me of my 3 sisters and myself.
We have many memories camping and sunning at the beach in Santa Barbara, CA.

This sweet dry sink from the 1800's adds more charm!

A child's tea set I used for years with my grandchildren.
The little dresser was used in my hubby's home as a child.
A flame-less candle! Perfect when little ones visit!
Samantha & Charlie are always close by, not wanting to miss a thing!
My next post will be this guest room's bathroom!

Oh I just love blue and white! That room is so inviting. I love all the personal touches, and the story behind them. Isn't it wonderful how a piece of artwork can speak to you like that, and bring back such fond memories?
Thank you for sharing! I always look forward to reading your blog. :)

What a beautiful guest room. I love your color scheme and it is nice how you have elements of you and your husband's memories with the tea set and dresser.

Linda said...

My Gosh
That's beautiful. You did a wonderful job! Now I know where I'm going when I run away from home! Would love a room like that.
You mentioned how you use 5 bedrooms, and it seems your family is grown. Everyone thinks we should downsize when we move. Please, I'd love more room, not less!

Linda said...

I meant to ask if you made the bedding, or bought it?

Heather's Blog-o-rama said...

Hi Maryjane... oh this is really sweet!!! I love the blue and yellow in the room. My dad would love it too, because he loves blue. He won't let me put too much frilly pink stuff in the living room...It's full of Scripture posteres...literally and other nice things...he's a guy!!! But he did "steal" my blue/pink hyndrangeas ruffled pillow from Shabby Chic...ha ha ha ha ;) :) Anyway, this is a great idea for a room. Where did you get those lovely signs above the doors? did you paint them yourself? Either way they are beautiful. I also loved that darling little shelf abvoe the dry sink, too!!! I love this...the home is inviting and hospitable...and It hink your guests will leave feeling encouraged and uplifted, too :) :) Have a lovely weekend. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)
