Southwestern Guest Room Reveal

Time for another reveal post! Can you tell I’m trying to tie up loose ends on this house before I completely move on to the next one? Although this room turned out so well that I think I’m just going to move it right into the next house and try to change as little as possible.

before and after

Here is what the room looked like previously…the one on the left is just after we bought it, and the on the right is after the first makeover.

Unlike the rest of the house, I chose a neutral paint for the walls and I think it really gave me freedom to do whatever I wanted in the room. There are a lot of neutrals in here for sure, but also lots of color. And I think the icing on the cake is the texture in the room.

Here is a shot of the very plain, very boring, other side.

If you are a regular reader you may remember that my plan was for Adam and I to build double bypass sliding barn doors for this closet. Well, we did…and they were one of the biggest DIY fails to date.

Another thing I like about this room is the mixed metals. When I first started remodeling and decorating our house seven years ago, I thought all the metals had to match. I chose pewter for all the door hardware and from there out all metals had to be pewter.

The Airstone wall is really what makes the room though. Without that wall it would just be your standard nice guest bedroom, but nothing to write home about.
