This pretty cottage guest room, the smaller of our two guest rooms is ready for guests. No, this room isn’t finished, but I have made great strides throughout the house and this, so far it my absolute favorite. I just smile when I walk into this pretty room. I hope my guests will enjoy staying in this lovely room.
The bedside stands in this room were previously in our master bedroom they need to be painted, but I am not ready to take on that project quite yet. The bed is the Claudette headboard from Ballard Design and the little wooden bird can be removed if you don’t care for it. This bed is available with a footboard also. The paint color I chose is the same color we have painted to public rooms of our house, Lily White by Benjamin Moore. This is a pretty pale blue that can look white or soft grey depending upon the lighting and time of day.
There are also mirrors as part of the collection. The wood Birdsong mirrors and bed are available in two different finishes. These would be a lovely addition to a farmhouse style cottage.
Here was the “before”. This was taken when the home was still on the market. The door between the two guest rooms was very odd. That was one of the first things that had to go. A local handyman was called in to remove the door and drywall over that opening. Now I am able to place the head of the bed on the wall that is actually between the two rooms.

I was thrilled when I found this bedspread, it was the perfect finale for making this pretty bed. This is the Allie Quilt by Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s. I love the look of lots of pillows on a bed, but that is not always practical for guests, so I kept the decorative pillows to the pair of euro pillows and the fun one with a Woodie on the beach ready to take someone surfing. A pretty dust ruffle will finish off the bed for guests.
A pair of distressed lamps give guests light to read by and accents like this cute little candle with a bird on the lid tie into the bird on the bed for a cohesive look.
This little bird dish would have been perfect for a bedside. This cast iron little bird dish is only $6.90 on Amazon!
Walls display marriage certificates from my grandparents and great grandparents along with a fun vintage picture of bathing beauties. I love giving my guests hooks for quick hang ups when they are coming and going while they are visiting. The dish on this side of the bed is actually a white bird adorned soap dish, but I think it makes a nice place for guests to leave their jewelry at night. If you are coming by, the sheets are crisp and clean and ready for you! I installed new faux wood white blinds and have hung a room darkening panel over them. I hope to find the perfect curtains to complete the look.
