Glamming Up the Guest Room

One of the benefits of living in a city like Boise is that you can have a little house with an extra bedroom. When Jeff and I first moved into our current place, the second bedroom was his office, but he moved his business downtown a few months, and now we have a room to transform. Interior design and decor can be intimidating - I have all these great ideas but it takes time and money to turn them into reality - but I recently gave my office a little facelift and realized that it doesn't take much to make a room feel brand new. I want the guest room to be inviting and relaxing, a welcome spot for friends to unwind and a useful place for extra storage. Here is what's inspiring me for our guest room makeover:

A pop color lamp to dress up the bedside table
Easy DIY - turn an old crate into a nightstand
Patterned bins for extra blankets and towels
A pretty duvet brightens up the space
The perfect chair for relaxing with a throw blanket
Simple bookcase for storage and light reading
Vintage prints of our favorite cities



  1. I love your ideas! We have a guest room at our current place, and now that we won't in our new one, I regret not sprucing it up a bit more.

  2. Very Nice designs!
    Great ideas for DIY!
