Accessories Make the Room

Accessories make the outfit and in this case they complete our guest room.  The accessories create the cozy, cottage feel I was longing to achieve.

Let’s take a look.  Guest room complete 009

Fresh flowers are always welcoming.

A scale that holds an Ironstone bowl with lavender sits on a bedside table.

Old books, a clock, a pair of glasses and a dress form (purchased at Heritage Square Antique Mall from Polly) sit on the dresser.

When my guests were coming it was 90+ degrees and still summer, so the shells were appropriate.  These will be changed out shortly!

I scored the euro shams, which seem to work with the bedding.

This darling, old ladder has the perfect patina for this room.  I found it at the antique mall for $7.50!  It will hold towels and an extra blanket.

The breezy curtains were purchased from GW for $1 each.  The little rocking chair is mine from childhood.

You learned all about my dresser (you can read about it here), I added a mirror in the same finish.  They were not a set but they seem to work well together.

The wreath is made of wood.  It has the same color that is in the bedding, so this will be a permanent fixture.

So there you have it.  The accessories of the guest room.

As the seasons change and guests come and go, I am sure things will evolve, but for now I am marking this room as done.

Note: All items were purchased from thrift stores.  Many from the Target section (they are new).  The total cost for accessories was just $32.50!!  I hope Hubby is reading this!

I've been trying to come up with something "brilliant" above the bed in our guest room. Love the idea of the open frame. I think I found my something "brilliant"! Thank you.
