Today, I’m focusing in on some recent finds I made for the guest room. While it remains one of the last rooms we’ve done any real work on, it has stayed the cleanest room during the kitchen renovation. Seems to me, it would be a good time to give you a glimpse into our free BnB.
The room is loosely cowboys-and-Indians themed, which has given me a place to showcase one of my many style inspirations: 12 year old boy in 1957. It’s hard to draw a line where your style starts and where it stops when you’re a maximalist. One way I try to bring some organization to my belongings is compartmentalizing certain collections to certain rooms so it makes sense, even if only to me. Our master bedroom houses my Pendleton blankets, pennants and scenic mountain scapes which have me welcomely dreaming of hikes in our national parks. Quentin’s office boast a large collection of vintage globes and maps. I hadn’t thought about it until now but that is sort ironic for a home office, but then again we’re all working toward something.
The guest room, in ways, feels the homiest. It is the space most nostalgic of my childhood passions and thus feels so personal to me. It’s also where our visitors stay, which is always special.
Here are some things I’ve recently layered in:
Small Vintage Travel Trunk, $15
Those stickers sold me. This piece had charm and I now have a place to keep clean towels.
Vintage “Made in Occupied Japan” Cowboy and Cowgirl Figurines, $2
#shelflife #shelfie because if you’ve got a cowboy room, you say yes.
Dog Paint by Number, $2
I actually saw this at an estate sale and passed on it because I already had a German Shepard paint by number and the price wasn’t speaking to me. A week later, I saw it at the thrift store for $2 and whistled on my way out. It has found it home on the same wall as my previous one and I like the balance.
Total Spent: $19
I hope to one day do the formal tour of the guest room but in the meantime, if you want to see more, come stay the night.
Our kitchen is coming along! The finish product will be posted by the end of the month. I can’t wait to share it.
