guest bedroom inspirations

You can tell what room I am working on by my posts : ) I am currently thinking about the guest bedroom. The bedding for the guest bedroom is going to cost less than the master bedroom, so that is the reason the guest bedroom is coming first . . .I think ;) The guest bedroom is a soft, very light, gray.

I really like the yellow & gray combo. I'm thinking about painting one of the brass chandeliers yellow or turquoise.
I usually spray paint all of my gold frames white, but I'm loving the gold in this photo!

The old bench at the bottom of the bed is my fave =)

All of the different patterns work so well together-- love it!

master bathroom reveal!!!

The master bathroom is FINISHED! It feels soooo amazing to be done! There are a few minor things I want to do-- flowers for the two vases & I'm hunting a woven tray/basket for items on the vanity. All of this hardwork was done by my amazing husband!! All of the designing was done by yours truly =) Enough chit chat, take a look for yourself ;)

pink everything! pink walls, pink toliet, pink bathtub, pink countertop, pink tile, pink walls . . .


lovely crown molding =)

capiz sconces . . . who would have guessed? ;)

pretty shower curtain hooks : )

The next 4 pictures were taken at night time, that's why the lighting is a little off, sorry!

the floor is amazing! It looks so light & airy. I feel like I'm walking on fluffy clouds =)

I found these baskets at two different stores-- they are almost identical! I use the toliet paper basket beside of the toliet & the wash cloth basket underneath the vanity

if one could be in love with a shower curtain, that would be me!

the paint color is wonderful . . . barely there blue {thanks to Layla from The Lettered Cottage) love it! : )

the hardware is my favorite too! defintely had to convince the prince on the hardware, but now he likes them so much he wants them in the kitchen as well ;)

funny story about the small turqoise cup... 2nd one on the left. I found it at Bed Bath & Beyond & thought it would match the shower curtain wonderfully. The cup was on the clearance shelf. It didn't have a sticker or anything. I took it up the register & the lady called to have a price check... a few minutes later, the lady came back & said they thought it was from Wal-Mart, they thought that a customer had stole something from BB&B & switched items & replaced it with the cup lol weird huh! haha anyways, I got it for .99!

The paint color is from The Lettered Cottage's custom paint mix! =)

Sorry for the 1,000 pictures, I knew that if I took the time to decide which ones to put, this wouldn't get posted for another month, I'm too particular! haha Hope you enjoyed! Let me know if you liked it! =)
