Home Tour - Guest Room

I'm finally getting around to completing all my half finished projects around the house, and trust me I have quite a few of them.  I'm going to try tackling a project each month.  We'll see how that goes. 

This past weekend I worked on my guest room and I think I'm finally done until my Design ADD kicks in again.

Here's a shot of the room before, in all of it's purple glory.

Here's the guest room now.

I know the imperial trellis pattern is "supposed" to be last season but I still love it, plus this pillow came from Target and only cost $10.  Can't beat the price and the shot of blue has a huge impact in the room.


The wall color is sauteed mushroom
  


I purchased the stencil months ago and was dragging my feet because I thought it was going to be a lot of work but it only took around 4 hours for the wall.  I used a roller and it was fairly easy except for last row since I had to bend the stencil. 


The paint for the stencil pattern was a metallic paint from Martha Stewart and the mirror was purchased from Home Goods.

 Every guest room needs a chair and this chair doesn't overwhelm the room, plus I'm a sucker for nail head trim.


I purchased this capiz shell chandelier from Target when they had their last global bazaar event, it was on clearance for $25.  This was definitely an awesome buy.  I do miss Target's global design event, I wonder if they'll bring it back.
Well that was the room in all it's glory, one project down, countless to go......

  17. I love this room! I just painted stripes in my bedroom thinking a stencil would take too long and now you've made me rethink the whole thing! I think the stripes took me longer than 4 hours anyway! Great blog - I'm your newest follower. :)

  23. Welcome to all my new readers who popped over from Better After, Thanks for all your great comments. Amanda, I purchased the mirror from HomeGoods about two years ago. It's been moving from to room to room but I think it's finally found a permanent home.

  28. Michelle, I just came across your guest room and your blog from Pinterest, and I love your home! I was looking through some of your pictures from your home tour and would love to add a couple of them to the paint and room galleries on my site (www.involvingcolor.com) and include you in a feature blog post. You wouldn't have to do a thing, just let me know if you're interested! Do you know the paint colors in your living room and dining room? They are great colors!

  29. I came across your blog after googling moorish trellis stencil.... I am about to do the same thing to my bedroom.... I love what you did here. I too am using ms tin metallic but with a heather goose down color as the base. My question is what did you use to adhere the stencil to the wall while working, and what type of roller did you use? Beautiful job!

  30. Hi Janice, for visiting my blog. For the roller I used a small sponge roller and just regular blue painters tape to adhere the stencil to the wall. Just take your time. Good luck.

  31. I love the stencil behind the bed. It totally makes the rest of the room pop. I plan to do that in our master bedroom. And the pillow from Target? Yes. I love that store.
