Antique Guest Bedroom

Coastal Maine Antique Guest Bedroom

Decorating a guest bedroom in a home is one of my favorite rooms to design!  This upstairs guest bedroom is at our newly inherited coastal Maine home.  A room that was refinished about 5 years ago to match the rest of the home and was never really used that much.  It's also a room that I have been very anxious to decorate and get ready for guests.  To learn more about our coastal Maine home and its story CLICK HERE.

 

To start, we assembled this full pine bed, added an antique dresser and chair that were all left to us by my parents.  I found an antique white blanket and quilt in the house that my mother made, perfect for this bed.  I changed the valance out with one that my mother had made from a downstairs bedroom. And gathered a few other antique finds from around the home to accentuate the dresser and the walls.

 

 

A quick trip to the local thrift shop and I found two large blue and white check pillows for .50 cents a pillow.  And I knew then that blue was going to be this room's color of choice.

 

The guest bedroom was now ready for what I call "POOF"!  A quick trip to the home good stores to find the "POOF", which consisted of a bed skirt, pillows, pillowcases, throw rugs, and more to make this bedroom feel cozy and inviting.

 

 

I luv collecting Irish sweater pillows and blankets.  They feel so cozy in any decor and any season.

I also luv adding baskets.  This one I found at HomeGoods for only $20, along with the Irish sweater pillows and blanket.

 

 

A few throw rugs that I also found at HomeGoods look antique with their vintage blue paisley pattern.

Fresh white towels for guests add warm and welcoming hospitality.

 

 

Luggage racks are such a convenience when you are a guest.  I purchased this one online, however, I think I will paint it and add some vintage inspired ribbon to make it look antique.

Why I refer to Love as "Luv"?
All my life I have been inspired by both my parents and a close aunt with their beautiful & unique antique decorating styles, much of which I incorporate into my own home designs today.  Over the years their letters, cards, emails, presents, and more all included the spelling Luv vs. Love.  And I have adored it!  I have always taken this to be a part of a generation gone by that I treasure dearly!  And I hope you will too friends!
