The very first room in the new house #thewarwickreno is DONE! I’m so happy to report that it’s the blue bedroom of my dreams (or at least pretty close). Do you remember the design plan and which BLUE I picked? This room will function as our main guest room. I wanted it to feel relaxed, but unique — a place to get a great nights sleep, and also feel like you’re on a bit of a vacation from the ordinary. Lofty goals? Potentially, with this before photo from our real-estate listing (I never got proper before photos in here)!
Please read on BUT don’t miss the giveaway from Paintzen at the end of this post! One lucky winner will receive the same DIY kit that I did to paint a room of their very own. Start brainstorming your dream guest room right now! Will it be a blue bedroom too?
This makeover is a great example of the power of a soothing color, window treatments and an inviting bed. The blue paint is Solitude by Benjamin Moore, the linen drapes are Serena & Lily, and the banded organic cotton bedding is by Boll and Branch. I’ll get to all my sources in a minute, but as we hash out the details let’s review some pointers for making your guest room extra inviting.
