Guest Room Updates

Wahoo!!! It's Friday!  Spring is well underway and definitely in the air.  Something about this weather makes me want to clean, organize, decorate or in this case re-decorate everything!!!  We've made a couple updates to the guest room to brighten things up a bit.

The new wall color is Benjamin Moore Smokey Taupe.  Quite an improvement from the previous dark blue that was on the walls. Next on tap are some window treatments.  I'm leaning towards an inset flat roman shade with a geometric trellis pattern.

This color pallet pretty much sums up how the room is shaping out.
But I'm also thinking the room needs a pop of color.  Pulling in the coral and strawberry hues from the rug for some toss pillows, wall art or maybe an accent throw could work.

Originally, a DIY upholstered headboard was on the docket but this room needs some more texture.  How about a dark wicker headboard?  This one at Target is reasonably priced.


Here's a look at the before blue room.

And now, mmmmmm smokey taupe. I'm feelin' it - are you?

 Have an amazing weekend!



  1. Love the changes. The Target headboards are lovely, remind me of the more expensive PB ones. Have a great weekend.

  2. Really like the new color, amazing how much it calms everything. And I think the texture of the headboard will be great! Hope you have a great weekend!


I love hearing from you! Thanks for taking the time to read a Lo and Behold Life and leaving me a comment!
