Show Us Where You Live Friday - Guest Rooms

Kelly at KellysKornerBlog is hosting a homes tour every Friday. I've missed the first two Fridays (kitchen and living room), which is probably good, since those are the two messiest rooms of our house.

This week is a Guest Room Tour. I love my guest room...it's one room where all of my decorations and furniture have all fallen together nicely.
This bedroom is in our walkout basement. It's a huge bedroom, with a huge walkin closet (which houses our out-of-season clothing). This will probably be Dylan's room when he gets older, and after we finish the 4th bedroom downstairs so we can move both boys downstairs.
The comforter and curtains are actually a light yellow/light blue floral print. I actually got the yellow/blue idea from a throw pillow that I found at Hallmark a long time ago (see it on the wicker chair below).
The window frame mirrow was actually sage green (from our master bedroom in our old house), and I painted it yellow. The white ribbon around the straw hat is from my wedding bouquet.
The iron bedframe is from Matt's dad's family. He found it up in his parent's garage. My dad sanded it down and repainted it for us right before we were married. I love the heart shape in the footboard (there's also one in the headboard).
The vinyl wall quote above the bed says "Sweet dreams, sleep tight. We love you, Goodnight."
Thanks for visiting!!

Is that like a little ledge behind the bed? It looks nice, like a built in headboard.

Yes, that is a ledge behind the bed. Because of the walkout basement, and how the yard was sloped down to create a back yard low enough for the walkout, the builder had to make half walls of concrete, and framed in the concrete to make a picture ledge!

Stephanie said...

So pretty! Love the ledge and wall quote!
