We love hosting company! From the first night we’ve moved in we’ve been blessed to share weekends with friends and family at our house. So, naturally this makes our guest bedroom a really important space! One of the things that drew us to this home in particular was that the downstairs guest bedroom is actually a second master bedroom. It smaller than our upstairs master, but it has a bedroom, full bath, linen closet, and large walk in closet all together making it a comfortable space for guests. We use part of the closet to hang extra table linens and store some items that have no other home but otherwise it’s all for our guests!
We’ve slowly but surely been marking projects in this room off our list. Next up will be paint and organizing the linen closet with baskets but for now I’m really pleased with this space. We have two different bedding sets for the queen size bed. The newest set is a navy elephant print from Pottery Barn (I bought this set about a month ago on sale. It’s no longer available online but some stores still have it in the sale section!), which I’m loving right now! We want to eventually paint the wall behind the bed a navy color and get navy drapes hung so I think it will all tie in quite nicely. Our other bedding set is also from Pottery Barn in their PB Essentials collection. We have the white duvet with the flax linen diamond quilt. I use the quilt with both sets of bedding. For the elephant bedding I use it under the duvet and for the white bedding it goes over to add some more color. Both sets will look great adding in some more navy to the room.
The bed was my bed in high school, which we bought from Pier One Imports and the side tables came with our coffee table from Living Spaces a few months ago. We weren’t planning to use them in this room but I think they go nicely and of course offer great functionality!
