It’s reveal day for the Six Week One Room Challenge and I can’t wait to show you the finished space!!! Getting it all done in only six weeks was so rewarding and now I have a gorgeous guest room totally finished! It’s now always easy to get a room done so quickly, but that is the fun part is actually pushing through some of the issues to accomplish a finished room! I’m also excited to share some of the sources I use with you today since I don’t always reveal sources I use for my client’s spaces.
I do want to let you know that I received some sponsored product for this room, brands of which are listed at the bottom. I would only use and recommend products in my designs which I love.
The pair of Arianna Belle gold yellow velvet pillows make the room and pull everything together. As you know from my previous posts, I wanted to layer Ochres, yellows and warm tones in this guest room makeover. These velvet pillows are gorgeously well made and the velvet makes the room feel a little more luxe. You can get these in a variety of sizes, these particular ones are 12x20.
I used my existing cedar bed and side table which my husband had made about ten years ago but layered it with new furniture and accessories to make a warm and relaxed space. The linen bedding is from Cultiver, which I have used several times before and love. I specified their white fitted sheet, white and natural linen pillows, a linen throw, and white duvet cover. In colder months I will definitely add a duvet insert but for now in the early fall months of California, I love layering with an ochre linen blanket and cashmere burgundy blanket. I paired it all with a vintage runner. There are a lot of modern elements in the space, so the vintage runner makes it feel a little more relaxed.
I met the artist of this embroidered piece, Alice Wiese, a few years ago at the West Coast Craft Fair. She makes these hand embroidered pieces using white thread. This particular piece adds so much dimension to this little corner!
If you have been following my instagram stories, you know I lovingly lime washed two walls in this room by hand. I used Sydney Harbour Lime Wash in Mountain Ash. The result is so soft and serene - I really can’t wait to Lime Wash a room myself or specify Lime Wash again soon. It has such a warm quality to it and now that its sealed is wipeable like an eggshell paint would be.
Hayneedle generously sent me this Marble Tulip Side Table and Wishbone chair for my Guest Room One Room Challenge makeover. The table top is real marble and its the perfect little petite modern addition to the room. I love how it opened up the room completely and adding something round into this room softens the look as well. I paired it with a glass carafe and a pair of handmade brass sconces from Etsy. The oak wishbone side chair is surprisingly comfortable! It’s a classic I can see living with for a long time - just one of those pieces that can be put in an office, a living room, bedroom, dining room - a very versatile chair.
I fell in love with the Baja Sand stripe fabric from S. Harris from their line with Fragments Identity. I had my workroom make my pillow and offset the center seam to create a little interest and dimension! I didn’t use a self welt because I wanted it to tie back to the Arianna Belle gold yellow pillows with the same construction. The stripe color in the fabric matches the walls beautifully. I love stripe pillows - they just always seem to work and add a little bit of interest without being too loud!
One of the things I’m MOST excited about in my new Guest Room is the art wall across from the bed! I used three five foot Minted art shelves and an array of Minted art pieces, vintage artwork, and I even did a little DIY painting at the top using left over Lime Wash. I used all thin black metal and brass frames from Minted, some with matts and some without. I wanted a California coastal vibe and a neutral color palette - I’m seriously smitten with the result!
The Minted art shelves are great because I can update the art display as I collect new pieces or my taste changes. They came with a bracket for easy hanging and even a level so you know they are straight. I was worried we wouldn’t get these up in time for the photoshoot but they really took less than ten minutes to hang! Styling actually came together quite quickly, I like to have a variety of heights on each shelf, and a mixed in some different shapes and natural elements just for fun.
Here are the art pieces I used:
Ledges by Ashleigh Ninos (my personal favorite - this would also look so good in the largest size as a feature art piece!)
Hidden Gem 2 by Elan Alvarez Sherman (this is my surfer-husband’s favorite one!)
Here are all the views of the Minted art wall, because its too good not to share ;-)
This Article Madera sideboard! Do you remember the “before” dresser? Well isn’t this just a breath of fresh air!? This article sideboard is the perfect modern addition to the space. I usually put sideboards in living rooms and dining rooms, but I wanted something really low and slender for this space. It is made in white oak, has soft close hinges and now stores all my extra bedding for all the bedrooms in the house! It provides ample storage for this closet-less room.
The art piece above the dresser is by Ron Nicole - and is made of plaster! When my first piece arrived damaged in shipping, she graciously rushed a replacement which was hung as my photoshoot was starting! It is even more beautiful in person - she gathers wild flowers and presses them into plaster and makes these by hand. If you don’t already follow her on instagram I highly suggest it - there is so much love, craftsmanship, and creativity that goes into her work. The piece pairs perfectly with the Lime Wash walls and looks soft and warm, especially in the evening light. I’ve wanted one of her pieces for a while and this was a great excuse to finish the space.
Lamps Plus sent me this awesome sandstone lamp for the dresser. It has a naturally soft hand feel and it visually looks so stunning with the Lime Wash walls - especially at night! Lamps like this one are like jewelry for the home and really complete the look of the space. Its nice to have some different lighting options (in the case of this bedroom, overhead recessed lights, sconces, and this table lamp on the dresser. The layered effect of lighting is flattering and functional. If you are feeling overwhelmed by the scale of lighting, Lamps Plus has some handy videos and guides on their website to help you find the perfect piece.
And now for the best picture of this entire makeover, my daughter Heidi making a cameo on photoshoot day :-)
