Continuing on with my “Home Tour”, here I will be highlighting the first of 3 upstairs guest bedrooms. My hubby and I have dubbed this room “The Happy Room” because of the bright colors and whimsical decor.
I found the quilt, pillow shams, & throw pillows in Bed, Bath, and Beyond and I’ve built the rest of the room’s decor around those vibrant colors; pinks, oranges, yellows, “happy” colors. 🙂 The room’s furniture is kind of a hodgepodge, we’ve had the headboard and dresser for years and years, my hubby made one of the end tables to match. The other white end table, the vanity, and the ‘towel rack’ were items that we had in our other house and I just decided to incorporate into this room. I chose panel curtains with oil-rubbed bronze grommets (they are the same as the curtains in the living and dining rooms downstairs only in white); the curtain rods and tie back hooks are also in oil-rubbed bronze.
I found this picture on sale at Bed, Bath, & Beyond and I couldn’t pass it up, the colors match the quilt set perfectly. I found those three doves at an online store, they are pretty heavy, but they were not expensive at all.
I found these sconces at Hobby Lobby for 50% off one day, they match the picture that I put over the bed perfectly! 🙂
I fill baskets full of little goodies and I leave one on the bed of each guest room. I include items such as shower gel, hand cream, chap stick, a loofa, bandaids, etc…I know when I travel, I invariably forget something, so I want to provide our guests with some little necessities just in case they have done the same. 🙂
I found that orange shelf at our local Home Goods store along with that sweet tea pot and tulip candle holder. The glass plate standing up in the back was purchased on the same day that I found the quilt because it matched perfectly and I couldn’t pass it up. Arranging the items on that shelf was so much fun! I included many different accent pieces, but, I used the same technique that I always use to do my Cozy Corners.
I made that deco mesh wreath, this is one of the first wreaths that I made on a 24″ wreath form and it turned out to be huge! I found that little metal owl plaque with the saying “Most People Are As Happy As They Choose To Be” and that was the inspiration for that wreath. I think it fits into “The Happy Room” nicely. 🙂
I have found that when I’m out and about shopping that I stumble across all sorts of things that match this room, so I’ve been picking stuff up here and there–all on sale– for quite a little while. Here are some of the things that have found their way into this “Happy Room”. 🙂
I put this little arrangement together to sit on the dresser:
This hall bathroom serves 2 of the 3 bedrooms upstairs, but it sits beside the Happy Room, so I went ahead and decorated it to match and gave it a similar feel.
My hope is that when folks come to visit and they choose to stay in The Happy Room, that it puts a smile on their face and makes them feel cheerful, content, and comfortable.
Until next time, y’all take good care! ❤
