I’m finally conquering the final room in my house… the guest room. The other rooms are coming along and hopefully will be finished any day now (the hubby and I were hanging pictures on Saturday night if that tells you how close we are!). The guest room on the other hand is still in the inspiration stage… the only thing that is for sure is the furniture (a Christmas present from the hubby), the quilt set and the elephant!
Since the furniture is sage green and cream that definitely sets the mood. I picked a gorgeous grey and cream quilt set that will help the room stay neutral. That means our color palette so far is sage, cream and gray.
Here’s where the tricky part comes in.
I’m not quite sure where to go with the color palette from here. The walls are yellow and I really don’t want to paint. I love a pop of bold color… so here’s what I’m thinking.
Sage, cream, grey and navy!
I have a navy curtain and pillow sham that I think would work perfectly in this room… other people (ahem… Mom) aren’t so convinced!
Part of me absolutely loves this, absolutely adores it. Part of me wants to pull out the antique ticking, buffallo checks and stick a little closer to the antique vibe of the furniture. We’ll see how that looks in option 2!
For today let’s take a closer look at each element in this little navy mood board!
I already own one navy geometric panel that looks very similar to the panels pictured above! Since I only have one panel I would love to splice my panel with a bit of grey material!
Yup, the grey and cream wonder rug has made it’s way to the guest room. After the whole $250 cleaning debacle I don’t feel quite comfortable enough to put this baby back in the master bedroom… so it’s going to live in the guest room for now! Luckily it looks awesome there!
Now this is one project I am super excited for! I won’t spill all the beans just yet but by the time I’m done with him Eyan the Elephant will fit perfectly into any color scheme!
I absolutely love this quilt set! I don’t know why but something in the pattern just grabs me! Since the furniture is mainly solid the pattern on the quilt will add a little dimension to the room!
With the navy curtains and a pop of navy over the dresser I needed one more pop of navy to bounce the eye around the room… these euro pillows are the perfect solution!
French Provincial Nightstand
This is almost the exact same nightstand that my Mom found on the side of the road! She snatched it up and now it’s on it’s way to live in my wondrous guest room… as soon as it’s been cleaned up a bit! I’m thinking a coat of sage paint will perk this baby up and help it to fit in with the other furniture! I might even dip the feet like the little gold detail in the example… maybe a set of little grey feet!
Well what do y’all think? Is the navy too much of a contrast? Does the geometric pattern go too far outside the box from the french provincial furniture?
