So, then I had to get to thinking about how to design a nursery that also has to function as a guest room. Can't be too kiddish or whimsical (which I really wouldn't do a complete baby-baby "theme" in a nursery anyways, just not my thing). I want a FUN guest room that makes you feel like you are staying somewhere coastal. Most of the main house is done in aqua, lime, gray or somewhere in between, so this is my chance to do something a little different. The hall bathroom is going to be coral, so I went along with that into the guest room.
Coral, birds, and pink. Why not?
The drapes are made and hung.
The walls still need painting. The walls will be Benjamin Moore Gray Lake. My new color love affair. This is a GREAT color for a ceiling, too if you are looking for a good not blue not gray. We use it on ceilings for clients quite a bit, but it's also a wonderful bright neutral for your walls.
I've got some major organizing to do before we can say this room is "done". The dresser and closet in this room are currently used by Hubs. He wears about 8 shirts, so we really need to make another Goodwill run.
So really, just painting, tidying up, and getting things moved around is all we need to do now. I've also got some fun ideas in mind for over the bed. Hopefully this room will work both as a sweet little girl's nursery, but easily transition back to full on guest room when she's big enough to bunk with Evans. We'll see!
