Hey guys! We are just a few days away from Christmas and I know everyone is busy finishing up with their holiday shopping, attending endless holiday parties, and getting their house ready for a visit from Santa. BUT, I wanted to quickly share a room makeover I recently did for a client here in College Station. This room is used as a guest room so it doesn't get a ton of traffic; however, my client asked me to add some finishing touches to make it feel cozy and inviting for all of their guests.
When I first saw the room, my client called it the "Texas Room" because of this beautiful, rustic headboard/footboard they owned. Although it was dubbed the Texas Room, there really wasn't much else Texas about it at the time. My goal was to incorporate more of the rustic feel that you get here in Texas, and also stick to the classic red, white and blue color scheme.
My favorite piece in the room might be the Texas state outline art that I randomly found at Target! It's so simple and perfect for this room. I also love these cowhide throw pillows because they are so soft and, of course, we have a lot of cows in Texas!
I added some navy striped pillows and red plaid curtains since the navy bedding is so simple. They complement each other so well and the colors are a subtle way to show that you are in the Texas room.
My client also had this amazing, antique sewing machine that was being used as a nightstand. It had so much character already, but it needed a few accessories to make it feel like it belonged in the space.
I simply added a lamp (which I think their guests will appreciate), a succulent plant and an antler, and then centered all items on this tray. I like to use trays as a base whenever possible so that the items feel like they belong together and not so random.
Overall there were not any major changes to this room (no paint, no new furniture, etc.) but instead just some fresh bedding and decor. It's amazing how all the different textures I added to the room make it feel like you are right at home!
Before, it was just a large wooden bed with the Texas star carved in it. Now, it's a comfortable and cozy Texas retreat for their guests to enjoy! I'm so glad I got the chance to work on this project! Scroll down to see more before pictures of the room and how it has been transformed by AMI.
As always, thanks for stopping by my blog and I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I look forward to showing you more of my projects in 2018!
