The Guest Room

Well, it was high time I did something about the guest room at our house! It was in need of something fresh. Well, I found the first photo below on a home design blog that I troll. I thought to myself... BINGO! An aqua room! What more could a girl ask for in life!?

So, $30 later, this is what mine looks like. Not as quite put together as the one from the blog, but its a start. I definitely need some wall art. I am thinking about making them myself. Harrison has been testing his screen-printing skills lately, so I think I can have him help me come up with something very cool for these walls.

One of the things I love most about this room is the pink blanket on the end of the bed. It belonged to my Great Grandmother. Ever since I was very young, I can remember this pink blanket. It is one of the first things I think of when I think of my Grandmother. She passed away last October and I was able to take it home with me. I still think of sleeping on the (what seemed like) HUGE beds in her basement. Good memories!

I will keep you updated on the updating to this room! Super fun!

One of the reasons I decided to get a jump start on this room is because my cousin, Andre, and his wife, Andrea, are coming to visit us this weekend! YAY! I hope they like staying in a blue room!
