Guest Bedroom Blues

I love most of my house, and am very happy with most of the things in it, but my guest bedroom is a bit blah. I found some cute pillows at Target last week (when I was supposed to be shopping for post-Halloween deals), and they inspired me to improve the decor for the guest bedroom, using possibly what I already have.

Here is what the bedroom looks like now:

It has a few cute elements (mainly the Dwell Studio for Target bedding, which I love love love!), but needs something to tie it all together. Maybe curtains? I bought that blue pillow (along with another cute blue pillow) and can’t return it, but it doesn’t quite look right on the bed.

I could go for more color, and use both blue pillows:

Or go for a more streamlined color palate with only black and white:

Which would definitely require me to paint this nightstand that I got at an estate sale a glossy black:

So I put together this mood board to help guide me, using pieces that are modern, urban, clean and streamlined.  I think the black white and yellow color scheme works well.

Pillow, Bedding, Bed, Yellow Lamp, Chair, Shelves, White Lamp, Table, Mirror, Dresser

What would you do? Go in a different direction? Perhaps something more relaxing and nature-inspired?

Please help my boring guest room! You might stay in it one day– so your opinion would be helpful!

  8. Yes, go with the white and black! Yes, Paint the nightstand. Some black and white photos on the wall would look nice too. I love staying in your guest room, that bed is mighty comfy!!!
