After taking my sweet time to put the finishing touches on the custom closet my father-in-law built for me, it’s finally done! I really love how it turned out. It’s plenty of room and it’s so organized.
I wanted to be able to see my necklaces and such, so the middle area became a vanity of sorts. I had to have lots of hooks… The earring frame and the bars on the sides are DIY and the 3 hooks in the back are from World Market.
We’re pulling our house together little by little, and I’m enjoying taking my time with special pieces and creating a collected space. I was super excited when I got the chance to pick out a couple of Caitlin Wilson pieces to finish up our guest bedroom and pull everything together! And to have the lovely Katie Oblinger come shoot it for me. (Psst – Here’s where we started: before, progress, more progress, and the finished room.)
Caitlin Wilson pillows and fabrics are super bright and happy! I think they’re a great accent to pull together colors and patterns in any room.
I loved the look of the British Bouquet Pillow with the blue and grey bedding, I liked the triangle pattern on the Tribeca Fabric for the fireplace cushion paired with the shiny Gold Lotus Pillow. I also paired these two modern looks with the traditional look of the old doily pillow. It that belonged to my Grandmother, I think it looks good just about everywhere!
I’m so excited to have our guest room finally feeling finished! I have no idea why I started with this room, we barely use it! Except when my family comes to visit, which is kind of often. You’re welcome, Mom! :) It makes me happy to walk down the hall to peek in and see all the color and pattern. The light in this room is so gorgeous, too. Mmm! In love!
First of all, we had to get rid of the awful red and blue stripes we started with: here’s the before, progress, and more progress. It was fun to see the room develop over time. I knew I wanted to try mixing a couple patterns (the floral and stripe came together really nicely) and I knew I wanted to add a surprising color to lengthen the bedskirt. That part turned out even better than I envisioned! (We had to put the bed frame on risers to get it to attach to the headboard.)
The dresser was our dresser in our room at the old house. There’s a lot of wood tones going on in here, and Birch blends right in!
The inspiration behind finishing this room was a really fun partnership with Caitlin Wilson Textiles. This was such a fun excuse to pick out one of Caitlin’s fun patterns. Plus, I just love their team! We have a really exciting giveaway coming up later today!
It was really fun to have Katie, of Katie Oblinger Photography, come shoot the room for me. She is the sweetest! We were just chatting away while she click, click, clicked away on her camera. If you’re looking for a photographer in Atlanta, Katie is your girl!
