Those of you who read my blog regularly will be shocked (well maybe not) that my own house is not “all that put together”. We have lived in our Monterey Colonial for over 25 years. While I am busy redoing and reworking clients homes my own home gets ignored at times. My friend Maryanne from Classic Casual Home (i know you know her and read her wonderful blog), and Nancy & Bethany (from Powell Brower home) participated awhile back in the six week one room challenge and the results were fabulous!! This is the kind of impetus I need. I can pull it together when I have to. We have had four weddings here .There is nothing like a deadline to spur one on. I have been “thinking” about one of our other guestrooms and what I “might” do…but you know…work is first, right? So…back to the six week challenge…I can do it right…you guys will support me right???
Here is what the room looks like now. I know what was I thinking of when I glazed those walls? I moved these twins into my son’s old room. I posted about it here http://roughluxeperspective.blogspot.com/2013/07/guest-bedroom-update.html.
Our son in law is 6’8 so a queen bed is not exactly comfy for him. We will be moving a king bed into this room so they will be more comfortable when they come to visit. We have collected American Antiques for over 40 years so I will be “shopping my own house” for most of the furniture and accessories.
Like our other guestroom I am seeking a more soothing palette for this room.

The room is neither small nor large but whenever you throw a king size bed into an average sized room you have to be careful that it doesn’t “eat the space”. My husband thinks I am nuts but I am thinking about putting the bed in front of the window like this. I really prefer walking into a room and viewing a beautifully dressed bead head on rather than from the side.
Ironically I ordered some similar vintage bird prints prior to finding this image that I may use in this room.
So the pressure is on! I am forced to get this done! I need your support to complete this task! Stop by Linda’s blog http://www.callingithome.com/ today to see what all the “invited” participants are up to. I am just a “tailgater”!
