Vivid Hue Guest Bedroom Makeover

I've been working on a handful of projects this summer.  I haven't been completing *any* of them quickly because I'm juggling all of them at once!  ha.  I did finally finish painting the guest bedroom.  You may recall that I fell in love with Emily Henderson's office color so I decided to paint my guest bedroom in HGTV's Sherwin William's SW6510 Loyal Blue.   

Next, I scored this fabulous vintage chenille throw in turquoise and lime green from Antiques on the Farmington and this set the stage for the rest of the room. 

Today, I just received my turquoise bamboo nightstands from Parker Kennedy--LOVE LOVE LOVE!

 And I thought now was a great time to share with ya'll my big plans for this room...

Remember my idea to trim my lil ole mudroom in grosgrain ribbon nail head trim?  (Recall here).
I even went so far as to have ya'll vote on your favorite color for that room in "Blush or Bashful"  

Well....I have decided to use the hot pink (azalea) Petersham ribbon in this guest bedroom!  I have already ordered the ribbon and the nailheads and I'm ready to jump right into this project once the supplies arrive! 

Lastly, I want to add a fun Sputnik type lamp in here.  I had considered solid gold, but then found this one  by Stimulight on etsy with the turquoise tips...what do ya'll think? 

PS- if you follow me on instagram, you already know that fab fuchsia chair is a find from Home Goods!  And that sailboat picture was a score from my antiquing in Kennebunkport

I love that light and just came across those on Etsy- what great prices! Your colors are fabulous and I love that you have no boundaries, and do exactly what you want. It is truly inspirational. I am a color girl, but I would rather do a painting with all those colors than live with them. I really enjoy your decor though and how unafraid you are to let loose. Bravo, and thanks for sharing!

Great room, I would feel right at home in a room with a sailboat painting and lipstick kiss pillow.

Oh my Gosh! This blue print is so inviting I wonder how awsome the room would look once it is finished up. Great job.

Question: The lights hanging on the roof, are they a chandeliar?
Hit back soon

Your guest room is so pretty! Love the color of the chair and the nightstand! I was drawn to the concept of your blog because I love vivid colors when I see them in other people's designs but I'm scared to do them myself! I hope to get a little courage from your blog! I am a new follower and can't wait to see more!
