{Guest Bedroom Updates}

Back in September I posted about our guest bedroom.  It was okay then but after looking at it for a while I realized the yellow was tired looking.  I know it's a very trendy thing right now but I'm so over it.  I think mainly because the room has been like that for 4 years now. 

Anyway, here's the room today. 

We took the yellow & gray pillows off along with the gray & yellow quilt.  I added the linen duvet cover from the Shabby Chic collection from Target.  I need an extremely fluffy duvet insert to but inside so it'll be full versus flat. 

I want to have our monogram embroidered on the white standard shams in gray. 

I am still completely in love with the headboard. 

A few things we've added since the post in September are:

I just realized that the pictures are a tad crooked and the sign needs to be adjusted to the center of the gallery.  I love the way this wall turned out.  It's very simple but just the touch the wall needed. 

I also threw this together & love it!

 I bought the urn 2 years ago in Dallas.  I never knew what I wanted to do with it & it's just been sitting in the room holding magazines. 

Well, my husband started picking cotton in late November & I went out to take some pics & it hit me like a ton of bricks.  I love the look of cotton.  It's so beautiful to me.  And it doesn't hurt that we have an unlimited amount of cotton at our disposal. 

The room is not easy to photograph.  I need a wide angle lens which is on my list of things to purchase. 
We need a rug, , find a chest, paint the ceiling & add crown molding.

I'm falling in love with this room.
