Guest Room Updates (So Cozy!)

Hello all! I’m back today with an update to the guest room that I’m LOVING. This room is undergoing a small redo over the next few weeks and this was the first step.
I’ve enjoyed working with Better Homes and Gardens to show off some of their products over the past few months and I think this one is my absolute favorite. As a reminder, this is how our guest room looked as of a couple years ago after I painted the ombre wall:
ombre-paint-wall
I was working off the design we had in there when this was my stepdaughter’s room – the green is much better: blocked-paint-wall
But the ombre look is still feeling a little “young” to me – I don’t hate it, I just want to make the room feel just a teensy bit more sophisticated, hence the small updates I’m making.
So I started with bed – we had that floral green and white duvet set for years now, but it had to go because of a spill that stained it. On our bed I would probably just hide the stain, but when guests use it I’d rather have the bedding perfectly clean.
Also, the green in the bedding was kind of a chartreuse green and it was really, really hard to decorate around. So when I couldn’t get the stain out I was kind of happy I could replace it. ;)
This is one of the brightest rooms in our house – the light just pours in here. I wanted to go with that and make it feel happy, but still cozy. The first addition were the SWEETEST blue and green floral sheets from BHG:
blue green floral sheets
They are seriously the most adorable sheets I’ve ever seen. I know I just said I wanted to go a little more adult in this room and here I am talking about the new adorable sheets, but I couldn’t resist them.
I love them so much I wanted to put them in our room, but they didn't work in there at ALL. The guest room is perfect. (By the way, I can’t find these online but I’m working on it!)
The comforter is what I’m most excited about though. I have wanted one of these pintuck comforters, in white, forEVER. I drooled over them at expensive stores but never bit the bullet. Then the knock off versions started coming out but the reviews weren’t great (some use buttons that pop off and the “tuck” disappears). So when I found the BHG version and the reviews were great I was on that FAST:
white pintuck bedding
People – I LOVE this bedding. (Here’s the link to it.) I washed it and it’s sooooo soft and fluffy. A fluffy bed is always so inviting, right? It washed great and came out with minimal wrinkles. (I was worried about that.) 
The best part is it is is less than $40 for the comforter and the shams. Hello. That is awesome. We’ve had duvet covers for years and it’s nice to have a comforter to just throw on there – no messing around.
I mentioned this room is going to get a few more updates soon, but until then I added a few other little changes that will make our guests feel at home. This weathered frame was so pretty and I have to show you this little detail – you just turn around the paper inside and it’s instant art:
weathered frame
I especially love that for a guest room where you don’t really want to put photos of your family. I mean, I’m sure they would love waking up to your cute faces, but I think the art is nce too.
I love the print so I’m going to keep that in there, but I also created a simple printable that I’ll keep inside and put out when guests stay with us:
wifi guest printable
I uploaded it so you can download it here as well – feel free to use it! You’ll just need to write in your wifi code. :)
 wifi printable for home
The resolution will work best in a 3 by 5 or 4 by 6 frame.
Here’s a better shot of the ombre wall:
ombre wall with squares
That nightstand is actually an old sewing table that I found on the side of the road. It’s still one of my favorite redos of all time. :) That vase is really a lantern – I’ve been using it to hold flowers around the house though. Love it and the rope handle!
Another little detail that I’m a little obsessed with is the plug in wax warmer I found:
plug in wax warmer
I can’t find the wall version online but this one is a little bigger for the same price ($10!).
I got a linen scented wax and I’ve had this on all day every day – it makes the whole upstairs smell so fresh. It’s not overpowering either – I don’t like a strong linen scent.
It’s the little things like this nightlight and the comforting scent that I LOVE. I hope it puts our guests at ease. I had it on last night and looked in the room and it felt so cozy and comfy:

I almost went to sleep in there, no lie. That bed is calling to me. I may have to do a nap in here at the very least:
pintuck comforter set
I’m seriously so pleased with the new bedding. Next up – some new paint, hopefully a DIY headboard, window treatments and moving some furniture around. For now I’m really happy with how it’s coming together:

SO. If you love this bedding too, I have great news for you. Better Homes and Gardens is giving away another $100 Walmart gift card to one of my readers…just cause they’re nice like that.
This giveaway is now closed! The winner has been emailed. :)
I will be away spending spring break time with family over the next few days, so I’ll be back on Monday! Have a wonderful rest of your week and a great weekend!

  3. My husband and I bought our first house last April and got married last June, so we were too busy moving in and getting ready for the wedding to spend much time on gardening/the yard last year. I would use the $100 toward flowers and other outdoor decor from Walmart.

  21. That pintuck comforter is beautiful. I'd be tempted to use the gift card for that exact set, but I really need new porch planters and potting soil and flowers to brighten up my front entry.

  22. LOVE this post! I am actually going to be renovating my guest room very soon! We had a spare room set aside for a baby nursery, but after three years of struggling with infertility, we are just moving on. Our guest room is currently in a smaller room in the house, but I'm looking foward to moving it into the bigger, brighter, more spacious room! I'd love this gift card for some accessories or picture frames, etc. just to liven up the room and give it new life!

    1. Sorry to hear that. I've heard so many times that when people stop trying is when it happens. Maybe it's the stress. Keep the faith!

  32. There are so many options for the $100! My husband and I recently moved to a larger home to use for ministry. There are several bedrooms I'd love to make a little more cozy and welcoming for our guests coming from all around the world. The $100 would definitely go a long way to warming up the rooms with new bedding, pillows, lamps, rugs, and framed art!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Love your blog, but I am one of the silent ones ;-) We are moving next week so I can think of a hundred ways to use a $100 - new bedding would be a top choice.
    I always look forward to your "next" projects! Keep it up!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. What a cozy space you've designed for your guests!! Our girls (now 12 & 15 years old) share a room & are in desperate need of new bedding ... I would spend the gift card on updated BHG bedding. Thank you! tamarfisher (at) sbcglobal (dot) net

  35. I just bought a BHG weathered frame yesterday! Love that line. Your gues room is looking very pretty. I have to stay away from light colored comforters as my hubby doesn't always wipe our small dogs paws when they are wet/dirty, and he also puts the wheeled suitcases on the bed! Grrrr! I, too, am looking to tweak our guest room. I have started at looking at a new comforter set or at least a duvet cover and plan on making a new headboard.

    ReplyDelete
  36. SO much to choose from! Bedding for MY guest room, towels and shower curtain for the bathroom, pillows for my sofa????? Would love to have the problem of making this decision!

  44. I would get a Bissell manual carpet sweeper. I remember having one around when I was little the way my kids (4 and 2) spill food on the floor, it would be nice to have a manual option, instead of powering up a vacuum all the time! It's the little things.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I am finally updating our spare bedroom, and want to make super inviting for our guests, with some nice bedding and accessories.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Love the new bed items but that squares/ombre wall HAS TO GO. Does not work. How about a pale soft blue/gray accent wall to add some color and tie it all together. That way you can do a neutral fabric headboard with nail head trim and have it pop. Love your style you always make me think about ideas. Hope the rain and bad weather in Indy today isn't to bad!

    1. I don't think it's that bad! I think it works fine, I'm just ready for an update.

  96. If I won a $100 Walmart gift card, I would buy new BHG decor for our home. Their pieces are classic!

    ReplyDelete
  97. I'm in love with your guest room and would use the gift card to update my bathroom. I want to create a whole new "spring theme" with brightly colored towels, a soft white bath rug, the BHG medallion fabric shower curtain, and the BHG medallion bath collection (i.e., waste basket, toothbrush holder, tissue cover, and storage canisters). You've taught me to stretch my dollar!

    Thank you, Sarah, for teaching me the courage and boldness to change my mundane house into my haven.

    Love, Mimi

  150. That is a beautiful makeover! It's the smallest things that can make the biggest difference! Its so cozy and welcoming and that cute welcome sign is such an adorable addition! I love it! That ombre wall is genius, that must have taken forever but it looks a lot more "grown up" now with the small changes you made.

    I love this bedding and would love that one in my bedroom re-do, I just bought a duvet and have been looking for a duvet cover just like that for forever! (all the rest have been to expensive!) It's not to feminine and it would be the perfect touch to my cottage inspired bedroom!

    Thanks for sharing!
