Guest Bedroom Re-Do Coming Up + GIVEAWAY WINNER

ok, with the Christmas party date being set, kids & families arriving to visit the thought
has come to me that the Guest Bedroom, last one of the left, must get a face-lift.


the room is not large but, thankfully, it has a pair of French doors overlooking a courtyard &
the front entry, so it has lots of good light.

it's a rectangle, so no varied ceiling heights, no fireplace, no real frills of any kind.

but I think it can be so much more functional and pretty.

loving the color palette of this one

oh, I know it, this one is pretty impossible, but I do like the carpet and the bedding.

there is an upholstered headboard, a tuxedo rolled headboard (but in a peach color)
& a Parson's chair & ottoman (same fabric).
so we're dealing with some white & peach with tan walls.

I have a beautiful antique 4-poster bed in storage, dark wood,
a skirted round table for one side, and a Chinese chest for the other side,
+ I lovely French chair, all of this is matching & coordinated already,
we would just have to move it in.
Kinda a taupe/tan with highlights of black & red.

if I call my helpers right this minute I could get this done.

yep.  that decision's made.  the only cost will be the moving in & out,
& my own labor.
think I can handle that.

Now for the winner of Tish Jett's book & the $100 Gift Certificate to Splenderosa's shop:

A Touch of Southern Grace

Lauren, please email me at
with your address so I can get the book to you.

Marsha Splenderosa said...

Tina! Snow already? Wow. We're getting an artic blast tonight with temps in the 30's so maybe it's time. That's OK with me. The heat is so awful in summer I am ready for this. And, I do love my winter clothes. :)'s
