Inspiration | Guest Bedroom

There are plenty of things that bring me joy; one of them is having guest over & being a hostess. The holidays are fast approaching which means my brother, his little big family, G.'s brother & extra guests will be visiting & staying over. Let me tell you, having tons of family & friends in our house just melts my heart (hence why we need that cottage/farm house *wink*). Have you ever seen Dan in Real Life? Yea, one of my favs forevs! That's exactly the kind of chaos I want in our home, eventually. You know, including the dogs & cats. 

I've been gathering ideas for how to pretty up our guest room. It's currently our office/guest room so I need to make sure it accommodates both functions. I plan on doing a before & after once its completed since it's a bit of a big (no its not) project. Not sure if you remember our office during our home tour, but the idea is to keep the room simple, clean & comfy for those who will be staying over. I found the perfect (small) checklist that I plan to follow: 

  • Linens
  • Bedside Lamp
  • Drinking Water
  • Luggage Rack 
  • Extra Blankets
  • Wifi Password
  • Waste Basket
  • Reading Material
  • Alarm Clock 
  • House Keys
  • Towels 
  • Mirror 
  • Snacks
  • Tissue
  • Toiletries

When it comes to decor.. our house is pretty open & we like to keep it clutter free because there are pets & now, tiny humans that we need to keep an eye on. I do like to include the basics: greens, dark decor, bright lighting. It's a weird combination, but I truly appreciate it. After our living/kitchen area, this may be my next favorite project. 

Up next -- restrooms & master bedroom. Yay!
