A Shabbied Guest Bedroom




Lamp and shade from Target. The light green beads were
added later.

Framed print bought at Country Roads Antiques  




Framed fern print bought at a now defunct boutique in Long Beach,
California

Long shot of framed fern print

Side table from Country Roads Antiques
I added the pink glass knob.




This is what I eventually would like to do with the room. You
can see this is a very old photo 'cause it's all wrinkled.
What do you think? Change it or continue to work on room?

It's such a beautiful room! I love the painting too! I would change it up with some brighter colors, like changing the pillowcases or adding a different chair. xoxoxo

Oooh, I bet your guests LOVE sleeping over in your lovely guest room! I'm partial to shabby chic decor, although your inspiration picture is pretty too. Though thinking back to your other posts, your inspiration picture seems as though it goes better with the rest of your home. Myself, I'm pretty eclectic and wouldn't mind different looks for different rooms. Guess I'm really no help at all ~ ha!

I love the lamp, lamp shade, and side table you've found. Beautiful. I'm moving into a new place in two months and am collecting ideas for interior design. These, I adore.

Simply lovely! I specifically loved the single beds and its bed covers. I have always dreamed of living in a white house. I feel very relaxed in these types of new homes for sale.

If my bedroom is as spacious as that one on the picture, I would ask my mom to give me an air conditioning in Orlando. It looks so comfy to sleep in that bedroom.

I find it hard to believe that's just the guest room. It's stylish enough to rival any master bedroom I've seen.
