as you may have seen on my instagram stories last week, i’m transforming my former home office into a guestroom. i mean, who really needs an office when you’ve got a trusty laptop? so, anyway — i’m going for a kind of funky beach shack meets vintage vibes. it’s hard to explain the method to my madness, but suffice it to say that if coqui coqui imploded with cape cod you end up somewhere in the direction i’m headed.
i’ve got a few of the main pieces nailed down — a land of nod jenny lind bed in black and a bunch of mismatched bed linens from serena & lily. i’ve got an old vintage tallboy dresser in there i’ve painted black and a few vintage portrait paintings i found on everything but the house. so i’m on the hunt for some fun lighting — i wanted something bamboo like this lamp i found on etsy and i think i’ll go with a simple sisal rug. i wanted to have some fun with the window treatment so i am battling between making draperies from schumacher’s Pyne Hollyhock in charcoal and this much more colorful vintage fabric panel bringing in some pinks and greens. anyway, this is where i’m currently at and i’ll share the complete makeover soon!
