OK...several of you asked for more pictures of the house a few weeks back. Since the decluttering is done, as we complete a room, or at least feel that one is more or less completed, we've decided to take pictures and give everyone a virtual tour. And many of you also commented (very sweetly) on how much you liked this room and the colors.
So without further ado, here are some pictures!
THE GUEST ROOM:
The farm house is two bedrooms and one bath. We wanted the master bedroom to be more masculine in color and style, so for this guest room, we decided on a softer color palette. There were two pieces of furniture from my Mom that were pale yellow and there was a pink bedspread on her bed...we had those in storage and decided to build off of them...pink and yellow!
This is the view as you walk in, toward one of the windows (and window unit a/c). You can see the Lane cedar chest we got out of storage last year at the foot of the bed. My Mom had that pink stand too, not sure what to do with it but hey, it's a corner and it fit perfectly. That piece under the window unit is an old wooden fireplace screen with flowers on it. No fireplace of course but this was a good spot to put it.
|Vintage yellow Hoosier cabinet|
This is looking toward the bathroom door (on the left) and one closet door (on the right). That cabinet is an old kitchen cabinet, one of those "Hoosier style" cabinets, in pale yellow. My Mom found it at a furniture consignment store once upon a time. It's a great piece and fit the space between the two doors like it was meant to be. It also provides us with great storage. Since the bathroom is so small and has almost no storage, we use this cabinet to store medicine and toiletries, first aid stuff, rolls of toilet paper, soap, shampoo, towels, etc.
This is looking toward the bed wall. This bed frame is a white vintage style metal that we found it at Ikea of all places! The lamp is a family piece from my Dad's side of the family. The pictures are just random finds from thrift stores and garage sales. The bears are patchwork quilt pieces and are also thrift store finds. Oh and that little yellow end table? We found that at Marshall's Home Goods store last year, it's the PERFECT color yellow for the room.
This is on the window side of the room looking back toward the entrance. That curtain on the left is the "curtain door" that we put up a couple of years ago since there is no door (no space for one to open up wide) on that opening. It goes into the kitchen. The yellow cabinet is a vintage child's wardrobe cabinet, the doors open and one half is all drawers. It's great for linen storage, sheets, a few blankets, etc. The door on the right is another fairly large closet (there is more closet space here than we had in town at the house, ha).
|Bedroom with flowers|
Here's another view toward that corner...
|Pink and yellow bedroom|
...and here is the other corner of that same bed wall, looking toward the other window (next to the one with the a/c unit). As you can see, the theme in this room is flowers. We call it the "Spring Room". We felt that having the guest room with a more feminine energy was a good balance for the house. Hey, even if we don't have flowers all around the outside yet, at least we'll always have them on the inside here in this room. I love to take a nap in this room on a nice cool day with the windows open.
We think both our Mom's would have loved to stay in this room.
Hope you enjoyed the "tour"!
