Guest Suite

I am learning how to be a mother of three children these days. Most days I consider a success, with a few hiccups along the way, of course. :)

 I can't believe that Sterling is already nine weeks old.  I was looking through pictures of her just a few weeks ago and I can't believe how much bigger she is now.  Well nine weeks after her birth, we have finally seen the last of her visitors come and go and I thought I would share with you the guest suite I decorated in time for her birth.  I wanted a soothing retreat for our guests, and I am just thrilled with how it turned out, maybe because it is one of the only finished rooms in my house right now.  My dining room, living room and work room are all currently in a state of remodel. 




 
This room started with the curtain fabric.  I found it a few years ago at a high-end design shop here in Lynchburg.  The shop was closing it out for $4/yard!  I don't know about you but when I can find a great linen priced below the cost of lining I swoop it up. 
 
 
My mother likes to read so a comfortable chair was a must.  I found this 1960's wing chair in the basement of a local upholstery shop.  I loved the lines so I had it reupholstered in a beige linen (again the color is pulled from the original curtain material).  As you know, I like to move my furniture from room to room so I find that by covering it in a neutral fabric I can change the entire look by just changing out the pillows or adding a new throw. 
 
 
 
 I love this rustic ticking fabric, and it was the perfect choice for a custom table skirt. 
 
 
 
I decided to stay with very traditional artwork for this room.  All of the apple prints came from a Finder's Keepers Sale last fall.  I think I paid $18 a piece for them! I think our next sale will be mid-fall 2013.  I can't wait. 
 
Here are a few pictures of inspiration rooms for this project... if only money were no object!

As I said earlier in this post the rest of my house is torn apart.  I am currently working on my living room/dining room, work room, and master bedroom.  I should know better than to attempt multiple rooms at once.  I don't have the budget, and I loose focus.  Too many choices!  Here is a sneak peak at my work room.  I really do think this is the prettiest 10 square feet of my entire home.
 
 
Excuse the iPhone picture! Full room reveal coming soon (I hope!).  In typical Rebekah style I've already changed out the chair at my sewing table. Maybe that is why room reveals are few and far between these days. When finished this room will have over 60 yards of  Brown Damask Schumacher fabric.  Dreamy!

  1. You created a lovely guest room and I can only imagine how much it was enjoyed as your family came to visit for Sterling's birth. It is hard to believe that she is 9 weeks old. Wow!

    I look forward to your next room reveal!
