Guest Bedroom Styling

I really like the feel of my Guest Bedroom it's light and fresh and cozy and a great haven for friends and family who stay over like my lovely friend who house sat for me this weekend so Mr P and I could have a weekend getaway.

I change the art work quite a bit ... the current art was bought at a charity auction and was hand painted by kids in Cambodia and takes pride of place on the wall.


The block out curtains were a great investment they really keep the sun out and allow those with fragile hangovers to sleep in for as long as they like! The curtains were bought from the same place as the Master Bedroom curtains.
 

I'm forever changing the throw cushions depending on what colour scheme I'm going for. In fact there's a big pile three times this on the bed at the moment because I'm running out of room in the linen cupboard for them. Note to self: stop buying cushions!
 
 
I love how neutral this room is and all I need to do is change the bed spread and decor to totally change the look of the room. The pin up girl was from my pin up girl art collection I made for the Master Bedroom. The lamp is from Target and the candle holder a $3 op shop find.
 

The light fitting is my favourite thing about the room it has that retro vibe and puts a cool pattern on the ceiling when it's turned on.
 

I've been on the look out for ages for a mirror and shelf to attach to the wall ... if you find one please let me know!

  2. I have a fetish for cushions too. I generally try and buy the covers so I can change the covers and not have cushions take up space! Love the light fitting.

  4. I really love the light fixture, I love lights that give out a pattern on the walls... we have one that does that in our walkway and everyone always comments on how beautiful it is.

    1. They add a bit of fun dont they :) The one in my bedroom is a chandelier and it adds a pretty pattern as well and makes the curtains look like they're striped!

    1. Yes I sympathise you'd have to put all the pretty shiny things out of reach of curious hands!

  7. So nice of you to think of your friends heads and have great curtains! We stay in Perth often and lets say the blinds are falling apart and there are many times in the past where I have tried to hide under the covers at 6am!

    1. You must drop some hints about how amazing block out curtains are! Curtain Wonderland have great curtains at their 50% off sales :)

  8. I like the idea of a neutral base and then you can totally change the look of the room quickly. This is pretty much how I have decorated most of my house.
