Updating a Guest Bedroom

Home Decorating:


We have great friends coming to visit this weekend. It inspired me to get cracking on redecorating my guest bedroom. The room is pretty simple. A bed. A desk (needs to double as my study). A couple of old stools I use as bedside tables. Lamps. Comfy chair.

So I needed to brighten it up without adding too much more 'stuff'. It was a great way to use my collection of Enid Blyton books. I added a fern and a small pot of ground cover. 

I focused mainly on the desk and wall behind it. First I hung some cute prints I'd bought on etsy about a year ago - they are of each of my favourite cities - London, San Fransisco, New York and Paris.

The frames are from Ikea - just $14 each which is great value.


I also relocated my aqua chair to pick up the blue in the prints. Sitting on the chair is the family of birds cushion


The room feels so much brighter and welcoming for friends now - inspires me to get a few more projects done around the home.

Happy home decorating!
