Be Our Guest

Sit back, grab a grande iced caramel macchiato non-fat no whip and be our guest…
As I talked about in my Welcome Home post several weeks ago, in December 2013 we found our dream home. The problem was that my head saw our dream home yet our eyes did not. After having described what we were looking for in mega detail to our realtor and looking at tons of homes in a thirty mile radius, I’m pretty sure she thought I’d lost it when I fell in love with this one. Beautiful property- check, privacy- check, good “bones”- check, fresh/clean/my style/move in ready- ummmm no. Honestly, I think that’s what I loved most. The fact that we could renovate and make it our own little wonderland. As far as the existing color scheme, I’m pretty sure fall threw up in our house. The walls were every shade of burnt amber, pumpkin, spice, forest green, apple red and everything in between. So first things first, PAINT!
The overall look I had in mind was “Hotel Chic”. We have quite a few friends and family who stay over often so I really wanted a room that felt fresh, clean and chic. Think checking into the W Hotel in Atlanta for a night, open the door to Room #345 and voila!
I chose the same paint color we have throughout the home for the main walls in the room. Make sure and read “Ponder-ing Your Wall Color?” before you go and buy this paint color. No seriously, read it. All of the paint colors for this room are listed below. Anyways, I wanted a neutral color on the walls and then a pop of fun on the accent wall. I also have a love affair with black ceilings. It is so chic and fun plus it adds height to a room and a modern elegance that I just love! For that pop of fun, I found this amazing gold wallpaper called Petal Pusher (Gold).
Main Walls: Ponder by Sherwin Williams
Trim: Downy by Sherwin Williams
Ceiling: Inkwell by Sherwin Williams
Doors: Custom Mix of 1/2 Stunning Shade and 1/2 Darkroom by Sherwin Williams
Wallpaper: Petal Pusher (Gold)
The room was painted, the wallpaper complete and now it was time for the best part… all the details. First I found this GORGEOUS Chandelier in a silver leaf finish with gold accents that accentuated the gold wallpaper just perfectly. I then found a beautiful cool grey velvet that has the same undertones as the ceiling paint color for the ottoman and headboard. I had these pieces custom made for the room. There is just something about tufted headboards that make my glamorous alter ego smile.
Next up was the bedding and drapery. Since the walls and ceiling were busy and I wanted a very fresh look, I chose simple white window treatments, as well as a white quilt and shams. This also gave me a good white canvas to add a pop of color and print with the pillows. You know how I LOVE a good pop of color!
