I’ve planned a “home tour” series for a while and finally have a room complete enough to show off. I can’t believe we’ll have been in the house for a year in September! Our one-year anniversary of leaving Italy is coming up soon, and I think I’m going to have a panic attack when it arrives…
Actually, I’ve passed that. I had a panic attack in March when I realized that the one-year was only a few months away. Oh boy.
Anyway, here is our guest bedroom! I painted it a very, very strange color that is hard to photograph. It looks weird in photos and weird in person, but I think I like it. Or I’ll just learn to like it because there’s no way I’m repainting any time soon.
I bought this Cynthia Rowley comforter set at Marshall’s a few months ago because I was having guests and decided I needed a presentable room for them.
I put a bookcase on the other side of the bed in lieu of a nightstand. I wanted to have something for my guests to read (since I’m not interesting enough to keep them entertained myself). The bottom shelf holds our collection of National Geographic magazines.
The last two photos are from before I painted. I could get much better light for photos when I didn’t have to worry about distorting the weird wall color too much! Though it might not look it from photos, I think the room looks much better with the new color.
The paint is Martha Stewart’s Heathered Moor.
