Today I thought it might be kind of fun to give you a *modified* version of my home tour. One that better explains the decisions I’ve made with my five kids in mind! When someone asks about my design style… I’m usually pretty quick to explain that I love color, I want my decorating to reflect our personality, and it’s got to stand up to kids. Style and children CAN play nicely together, but it takes a little practice!
One side of the guest room has a big glorious pattern on pattern wallpaper and daybed, but to balance the impact of that wall, I wanted something on the opposite wall with lots of color and weight to it. I looked and I looked, but everything was either too small or too expensive or just not quite right. So… what’s a DIY blogger to do, but do it herself!
I was asked to feature their new Coastal Living line and you’re probably thinking the same thing I was thinking…. that’s cool, but I’m not particularly ‘coastal’ in my decor. You guys. This line was every shade of blue that I love and more! IF you’re coastal… just stop reading this post and go. Go now.
You’ve heard me reiterate my goals for the space over the last couple of months so you know I wanted to make this small room feel a little bigger but still make it work as a guest room. I decided to orient the bed against the wall and turn it into a daybed. But the only daybeds I saw online were ‘meh’. Sooooooo, I built one!
