Surprise Guest Room Makeover!

A few days ago, my brother-in-law was talking about decorating the guest room, and I told him I was happy to help.  He told me I could have full reign over decorating, and I was beside myself.  This was going to be fun!! I swung by their house  to snap a few pictures of the themed Disney art prints that were already hanging up.  I wanted to work with the existing furniture and cool tone of the wall paint but make the space feel welcoming, clean, and energetic. All opinions expressed are my own and have first appeared on The Petite Adventurer.
The existing khaki and pink tone bedding did not go well with the blues and greens of the art prints.  It was important to find something that would tie all the colors together.
I was able to find all of the bedding components– sheet set, comforter set, and pillow shams at Macy’s for an incredible price.  The sales associate helping me was a superstar, and she even maximized my savings by breaking up the transaction and using coupons on every item.  She price matched each item with Macy’ (which is considerably cheaper), in addition to using my coupons.  I’ve made a new shopping friend today…  
  • Bar III Printed Sheet Set – $33
  • Bar III Pop Stripe Comforter Cover – $61
  • Bar III Pop Stripe Pillow Sham – $18
After Macy’s, I zipped over to Crate and Barrel to see if I could find a nightstand lamp for around $100.  It was hard resisting the amazing selection, but I forced myself to stay on budget.  The lamp was definitely the “splurge” piece, but well worth it because it adds an air of sophistication to the youthful room.  The lamp also matches well with the cool tone theme throughout the house, so I know it can be used for many years to come.
I hopped back into the car and headed to Target, where I snatched up an adorable faux succulent arrangement in a white and acrylic vase.  The little succulent had plenty of subtle color that would tie in the art prints.  I threw in a set of decorative square mirrors and two unique wall shelves and pushed onwards to see the fabric curtains.  I zeroed in on a high-quality Nate Berkus woven curtain at the stellar price and scooped up the last two on the rack.
My sister and brother-in-law came home just as I was cleaning up the last scrap of cardboard in the guest room.  They were thrilled with the bed set, and especially loved the lamp!  This was a wonderful way to spend a free Sunday, and it only got better as we hung out in the new guest room.
