My parents are coming to visit in two weeks. The guest bedroom (the sofa is a sleeper sofa), which is actually more office-sized, as my roommate occupies the second bedroom in the house, currently looks like this:
I know, right?
So besides giving those ceiling fans a ride to Salvation Army and putting a lot of that stuff back in the closet (which is strategically packed to the brim with old college stuff I have yet to go through - (sad, yes) - luggage, and Christmas decorations), the room needs some character. I'm currently sitting on a gallon of paint called "Silver Drop" - it was supposed to grace my bedroom walls, but I ended up going a different direction and I don't want to waste it. So here's the mood board I put together for the guest bedroom:
1. Silver Drop from Behr - I already own this...the rest of the paint colors are just to give you a feel for what I am going for in the room
2. Jumping on the chevron pattern fabric bandwagon ... I think I am going to go with wider chevron stripes (similar to this, but not as wide, I'll find a happy medium), andI found several online tutorials for how to paint your own chevron curtains (I plan to use some plain white grommet curtains from IKEA)
3. Throw pillows from CB2...I have a gift card from a returned purchased...definitely could come in handy...and I'm loving the question mark pillow...it's called "huh?" :)
4. These are actually counterstools on Overstock, but I thought they would make great end tables/nightstands on either side of the couch.
5. Frames from Pier 1 (I already own these, thanks to a gift card :) ) - I think I will put yellow flowers in the center
6. These lamps are on sale at West Elm right now...I think I might just go ahead and buy them, since they are SUPER on sale.
7. Not pictured, but I want to get a white couch cover for the sleeper sofa...otherwise, ick, major color clash!
We'll see how far I get in two weeks...stay tuned...
