Guest Bedroom Makeover

I have been itching to share this makeover since we began the project back in September. I wanted to create a room that didn’t have too many personal items so that when we had company they didn’t feel like they were sleeping in someone else’s bed. I think a guest room should really focus on making your company feel as comfortable as possible, and that starts with a great nights sleep. We chose this amazing Tuft & Needle mattress that uses breathable foam to pull hot air away from your body and cool you down (perfect for those sweltering Atlanta summers!) The sheets are made out of viscose from bamboo and have a sleek sateen finish. My husband and I each spent a night sleeping on this bed and we’ve never slept better.

Inside this tufted bench are extra sheets, towels, and blankets. It can also double as a luggage stand. A full length mirror was added next to the bathroom for dressing and applying makeup. I hate the lighting in bathrooms and natural light is so much better for everything. One thing I love most about this room is the fact that it lets in the perfect amount of light. Enough for you to do your makeup and read but not so much to where it wakes you up bright and early.
Fresh flowers and a scented candle are always welcoming. I added a tray with some drinks, treats (aka late night snacks) and toiletries. This vintage dresser belonged to my father in law and we loved it so much that it stayed in the room to add some character. Another thing I love about this room is it has a private staircase going down to the kitchen so that guests can come and go as they please.
I have always wanted a wooden headboard and I knew that is what this bedroom would have before we even started the makeover. My husband is extremely talented and built the custom headboard. Since we went with narrow side tables, traditional lamps would have taken up the whole tabletop, leaving no room for phones, wallets, etc. We added these wall sconces from Kichler. and their industrial finish compliments the rustic headboard perfectly. The original ceiling fan in this room dated back to the 80’s so we upgraded to a sleek black fan, also from Kichler. It pops so well against the white walls and ceiling and provides a nice focal point.

A flat screen TV was mounted above the desk and has an Amazon Fire stick so guests can choose from a wide variety of shows and movies. I filled the bedside tables with an assortment of books and magazines. Everything from non-fiction, fiction, mysteries, home & garden, etc so they can wind down after a long day of traveling. The beautiful wing back chair is the perfect spot to watch tv or read a book and we added a floor lamp behind it for extra light. I use this workspace whenever I can so I can have a clean area to concentrate. Sometimes sitting on a couch with kids jumping on you with Mickey Mouse playing on the TV isn’t the most calming environment.
