Guest Bedroom #2 – The Turquoise Room

Hi All,

I debated about what I wanted this room to be for months and many options came to mind, how about making it into a craft room? Since it sits on the front of the house and has great light it would make a lovely place to be creative. Or, maybe it would make a great office, or possibly we could turn it into a nice upstairs rec room.  In the end I ended up making it a guest bedroom.  I don’t need that room to be any of those other things, but, now that it is a bedroom it has already been utilized several times to house visitors.  I decided to use turquoise as the accent color because, one, it is my daughter’s favorite color and she had claimed this room as hers when she comes to spend the night, and two, because I love how turquoise pairs with khaki; I had already chosen and hung the curtains in a khaki color (the same curtains that I used downstairs in the living and dining rooms and upstairs in the Happy Room).  In addition, I had found the bedding in Bed, Bath, & Beyond and I wanted to use something that would pop against that choice.

We didn’t have extra bedroom furniture left over from our other home to put in this room, so we needed to buy new, but, we decided not to spend a ton of money creating the wheel (so to speak).  So, one day while looking at the IKEA website, we stumbled across these turquoise bedside tables!

I knew it was meant to be, so off we went to do a little shopping at IKEA.  We ended up purchasing 2 bedside tables, a queen sized mattress, a white bed frame and headboard, a full length mirror, two white lamps, and a white table to be used as a tv stand.

After I had the furniture in place, the bed made up with the comforter, pillow shams, added the throw pillows, and hung mirror on the wall. I started searching for the accent pieces that would help to bring this room to life.

Here are some of the turquoise and khaki colored accent pieces that I found one day when I was shopping specifically for this room. These items are from several different stores…World Market, Hobby Lobby, and Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

We already had that little table, we painted it white and I found that basket that is housing the towels at IKEA on the same day that we purchased the furniture.

I got the canvas picture that is over the bed at Bed, Bath, and Beyond for 80% off. What a deal!!

I found this sweet little chair at World Market and I used a $50 off coupon on the day I purchased it and the pillow.

My hubby painted parts of the ceiling fan in a turquoise color…spiffy! 🙂

I made this burlap wreath, I absolutely love owls and had already found others to use as accents around the room!  So, when I found that owl in Hobby Lobby, I snatched it up to use in this wreath.

As I do in all of the bedrooms, I leave a little basket of goodies on the end of the bed for those who might forget to pack something.

In the end, this turned out to be a lovely room full of warmth and a bit of charm thrown in for good measure. My hope is that anyone who might to stop by to stay for a spell will lay their head down in this room and will feel the love with which it was created engulf them like a warm snuggly blanket.
