Guest Room Re-Do

This Christmas I received the West Elm duvet I've been eyeing.


And since my guest room/craft room currently looks like this.....

It is time for a total re-do.  

This room was just a collection of random items from college and it was screaming nursery.  And since it is definitely NOT a nursery, it is time to get off my couch, shut down pinterest and get to work transforming it into a modern and fresh retreat for myself and the occasional guest.

But before I officially get off the couch and shut down pinterest I decided to come up with a vision and scheme for this space.  I usually jump into project with no plan or vision and I just creates a mess with no style, no statement and no fun.  It's just blahhhh. 

I am done with blah and I have come up with a fun scheme that will inspire my creativity and be a great starting point for the rest of the house.

What do you think?

This week I am hoping to the paint the walls Benjamin Moore's Revere Pewter.

And then sew some roman shades (tutorial found here) in the kelly green color.  

The main color scheme will be grey and white with splashes of green in the pillows, lamps and wherever else I decide to splash it.

I've been trying to find a room with this color scheme already in place so I can get a sneak peek at how these colors mesh since this could be a disaster.

But I am ready to take the risk.

Amazing! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a entirely different topic but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Outstanding choice of colors!
