Guest Room

After months of replacing plaster ceilings (what a huge mess!), refinishing hardwood floors and painting painting and more painting, we've finally finished one of the guest rooms. 

This room is one of the brightest in the house because of how much sunlight it gets. We tried to keep the light fresh feeling by using lots of white.

Almost feels like you could be at the beach, a nice thought after looking out the window and seeing over a foot of snow on the ground!
The over sized chair is tucked in the corner of the room. It's slip-covered in a white canvas.
We decided to keep the paneling in this room (along with many other rooms in the house) and painted it bright white.
Two of the pillows are linen, one with white embroidered knots and on the other pillow I sewed a real starfish.

The dresser and bed in this room were both flea market finds. Both white with chips and dings (some made by me over time), they help the room to feel cozy and not fussy. On the dresser is a collection of bottles with shell stoppers, a vintage white pitcher and a memo board made of jute and shells.
The cast iron mermaid doorstop help to keep the door propped open.


  1. The room is bright and airy. I love the starfish pillow.

  2. Thank you Chandra! I stitched the starfish (it's real)to a linen pillow I already had that I thought needed something extra.

  3. Love this room. The florals with the beach assessories are perfect. You should really post your spaces on It will be much more appreciated on that site than Rate my Space.

  4. You have a beautiful room! I love the mix of fabrics and textures. That chair looks like a very cozy spot to sit.
