Guest Bedroom Ideas Created with Antique Family Keepsakes

October 10, 2019


As I practice my patience in waiting for our newly inherited Coastal Maine home to be painted and floors refinished in a couple of months', I decorated one of the home's guest bedrooms to get us by.  l hope you enjoy all the collected antiques and keepsakes that adorn this guest bedroom, keeping within the period of this Raeside-Dame Coastal Maine home.  To learn more about this home and its story link here.



Antique door latches on all the doors...



A wrought iron queen bed found on eBay for under $300 started this room off.



One thing about decorating old New England homes, is I find that mixing colors and textures adds to the coziness.  Here I added my mother's handmade quilts to the guest bed, an old bed skirt from the closet, and her handmade braided rugs.



An antique table at the bedside with beach stones in antique tins along with a black and white photo of a girl and her dog on the beach add a touch of that coastal Maine vibe.  All the antiques were collected by my parents throughout the years.  Including the antique table, lamp, photos, and more.





My mother made the cute white and blue curtains, which I think will stay in this guest bedroom.



A small gallery wall of seascapes, more handmade quilts, braided rugs, etc..  

The tennis racquets were my father's, which he played until he was 86 years old!  After this room is painted, I will be creating something special with the 6 tennis racquets that he left behind.



The top left-hand corner photo is me as a little girl on the rocks of Nubble Light, Maine finding crabs and sea urchins.  And the adjacent vintage photo is a photo of my mother at 3 years old with her Collie dog before any homes were built on the Nubble Light peninsula.



 I'm so thrilled you stopped by today and I hope you enjoyed your stay

along with a little antique decorating inspiration!
