After residing in our present house for almost 2 years, I can lastly say the visitor room is completed! Take a look at the reveal of our eclectic and colourful visitor room.

Hello pal! I am so excited to report that we lastly have a very completed visitor room. I’ve numerous photographs and particulars for you. There’s a full supply listing on the backside of this submit for you 🙂

In case you are a daily round right here, you realize that I initially began giving our visitor room a makeover BEFORE we even moved into our house. We had the partitions painted Sherwin-Williams Pure White and had the carpet changed with hardwoods to match the remainder of the home proper earlier than we moved in. That alone was a giant transformation from how this room began out (see under).

However then it sat stagnant for some time. We did not actually have a mattress since we used the mattress from the visitor room in our previous home in Avery’s new bed room, lol.

Lastly final November I wanted to do one thing to arrange the area for a go to from my mother-in-law. So we made this actually cool DIY headboard with customizable messages (one in all my favourite DIY initiatives ever), added a beautiful run, purchased a mattress and platform mattress, repainted the dresser to suit the area higher and even hung up a little bit of art work. It was an enormous enchancment! But it surely positively wasn’t completed.

Effectively associates, I lastly, lastly, lastly completed this area! Let’s check out what nonetheless wanted to occur:

  • The clean area above the mattress wanted to be addressed in a manner that would not compete with the headboard itself.
  • The room wanted some accent lighting in order that the overhead pendant gentle wasn’t the one lighting possibility.
  • The room wanted some extra textural curiosity and a few crops (at all times crops, lol).

So here is what I made a decision to do:

I ordered these actually cheap sconces to hold above the mattress (you will discover numerous my favourite sconces right here). This served 2 functions. First, it will function the much-needed accent lighting. Second, I knew it will assist fill within the clean area above the mattress with out competing with the cool headboard. We didn’t hardwire the sconces. As a substitute, I used these screw-in puck lights that activate and off with a distant.

I performed round with what to hold above the mattress and in between the 2 sconces. I shortly determined that: 1) I wished it to be a photograph and never an artwork print and a pair of) it wanted to be lengthy and rectangular in form. After brainstorming I made a decision to have a panoramic picture that I took of Joe and the ladies’ on our trip this summer season framed. I used Framebridge for the primary time and it was the PERFECT resolution. This was NOT sponsored or gifted by the way in which. I beloved that I used to be in a position to fully customise the completed measurement, the body AND I used to be in a position to have essentially the most stunning customized plaque added to the underside of the body. It is one in all my favourite issues within the room! That is the precise body that I ordered.

I additionally added this Pottery Barn dupe lamp to the painted dresser for an additional accent lighting possibility. This lamp is so reasonably priced and SO GOOD.

Final however not least, I introduced in additional textural curiosity by hanging some beautiful embroidered items that my late grandmother handmade on a small part of wall in between the closet and visitor lavatory. I additionally moved this basket in from our household room, however I am unsure whether or not it would keep in right here or not. I really like the concept of a big basket right here, however assume a basket with fewer colours would look significantly better in right here.
