I have the absolute best husband in the world! While many women received fantastic gifts over the holiday season I received the best gift of all…. a brand new guest room set! My hubby knows my taste very well and went out on a limb to purchase a very nice twin bed set for our guest room… all under the cloak of darkness. AKA I had absolutely no clue about any of it!
Just take a look!
Isn’t it gorgeous?
Of course his very generous gift means I have to design an entirely new mood board for our guest bedroom… which is both exhilarating (I love making mood boards!) and disappointing (I kind of liked the old one). Oh well! The double bed will live on in the next house… when we have more space! Our teeny tiny rooms are better suited to a twin bed so we are going to set up one of these lovely twins in the room across the hall!
I really wasn’t sure where to start with these bad boys… they’re absolutely gorgeous. (Of course!) Antique and french and everything I love… but they’re a slightly sea glass/mint/light sage/sea foam… green. Which is totally not my style… but happens to be the hubby’s favorite color.
Funny how that happens, huh?
He’s been threatening for years to sneak a bit of green into the house and I suppose he finally did… I’m just glad he gave up on painting his office green. He literally told me to “look for a green the color of a stop light… that’s what I want on the office walls.” Can you imagine? You could see that color through your eyelids!
This is a much softer, prettier green. This is a green I actually like! I could even venture as far as love… with the right accompaniment!
Mom thought that yellow and blue would look stunning and I am playing with grey (I am loving loving loving this gray quilt from Bedding Style! Someone please send these to me!) but it wasn’t until today that it finally hit me…. Grey, Sea Glass… and Navy.
Navy is what I’m missing. Navy is what will make the green pop and the grey look neutral. Navy is what I NEED! Along with a healthy dose of guest bedroom inspiration!
Check it out….
I’m loving it! Now I just have to add it all together… I’ll whip up a mood board and be back to show y’all what I’m thinking!
In the meantime let me know what you think… do you love the grey or hate it? What’s your thoughts on the navy?!
Either way I know one thing we can all agree on… my hubby hit it out of the park this time! Best. Present. Ever. I am so excited!
