Some Small Changes

I have made a few small changes in one of my guest rooms.  Changed some pillows out.  Hung some pictures above the bed.  Swapped out lamps.

Here is the before.
Below is the after.  Different lamps, different pillows on the bed and the bench.  Paintings now above headboard.




Close up of one of the vintage Paul deLongpre prints.


The view from the hallway.


Small changes, that we actually made before my surgery and I forgot to show you!  Nothing was purchased.  These are just items that moved from one room to another or were in a closet waiting to find a home.
Welcome Home,
Penny

  3. Penny, that looks great with those pictures above the bed. Love that room. I was wondering how you did that with your arm and I see this was done before the surgery.
    Have a good weekend!

  6. Penny, it's beautiful. It's funny because I took it all in.... looking at the first pic, before I moved to the "after" pic. I loved the first pic and was thinking how much I would love to have a room like that. And then.... when I went to the "after"... I was like WOW... how did it get so much prettier???? I love it!!!!

  9. Ha! I am loving this, I've never seen this room before, and I have to say, it is a lot like my master bedroom, which has been on the backburner for years, so thank you Penny for showing this, it's giving me some great ideas!

  12. Currently red is my favorite color...so I fell right in LOVE with your guest room! The prints above the bed are the perfect touch and I like that you didn't have to purchase anything...recycling furniture and objets d'art around my home is one of my favorite things to do!

  22. How lovely! I have that same quilt at the foot of your bed, and I love it! I am going to use mine in a redo of my teenage son's bedroom, and I can assure you, it won't be anything like your room...but what a nice job you did! And shopped your own house, too!

  37. Did you make your curtains? I'm always on the lookout for toile curtains! My mom made me some Waverly (is it Country Life?) valances years ago and I've never grown tired of them. I love your room. I liked the old lamps better, proportion-wise, but I love seeing your home!

  41. Hi Penny! Thanks so much for stopping by with a word of encouragement. It was and is sorely needed! The dust and dirt continue... :)

    I absolutely love your guest room "pillow fluffing" AND CAUGHT my breath at the beauty of your colors...and then...I remembered why I love them so much! But of course! Duh!
    I'm fooling around..and being silly...but I do so love those colors together...
    Everything is beautiful..just beautiful.
    Do I need reservations? LOL
    Hugs,
    Mona
    p.s. Do you have any IDEA how beautiful my flower pot and lovely house numbers are going to look out there on our new front porch? I may never come in the house..oh..wait..I have an adorable mosiac lamp in there... I wonder who on earth did such beautiful work?! :) I am SO proud of the things I have bought from you, Penny! They never fail to get comment. I had to slap a few hands off my lamp..and I am NOT joking!! Daughters!!
    Hugs,
    Mona

  51. Hi Penny,
    Oh my, my heart is beating so fast! I love, love your room. The red is just calling my name..
    I love how you changed things around with your pillows. I do that too, it really changes the hole look of a room with just a few pillows or a picture. Your guest room is full of charm..
    Have a sweet day and hugs, Elizabeth

  56. Penny, I love the added prints and pillows you added to your room. There is nothing as beautiful as the Paul deLongpre roses. It looks more complete now and the pillows bring out the the colors as well.

    A great job for a one armed woman. Smile!
