Our guest bedroom


Shortly after moving into our townhouse in Houston, I came across this image.

Sorry, forgot where I found it...
 As soon as I saw it, I knew it would serve is the inspiration for our guest bedroom. While I always find myself being drawn to simple rooms with neutral colors, I love surrounding myself with bold colors too much to stick to a neutral landscape. However, because I think the most important thing for a guest bedroom to be is soothing, I decided it would be ok if I used a little less color in this room than in the rest of the house.

Here we are so far.

Note the Angel...

Most notable thing missing- headboard. We could buy one or we could make one. If I decided I wanted to make one, there are some great tutorials online. But I found a really great (and inexpensive) option from Target.

 Another Target option.

And one from Urban Outfitters.

I am thinking I don't want to devote an entire weekend to making a headboard myself... but I might just be that crazy one day soon. Or, I might have to pull the trigger on one of these soon!

xoxo, Emily
