Please help me finish my guestroom
March 10, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I repainted my guestroom several months ago and haven't been able to finish it. I originally painted the ceiling and walls a dark gold and it was like a cave. The teal pillows and throw were the inspiration to paint the walls SW Sea Salt. I love the wall color. The star of the room is my grandmother's 1950's serpentine dresser. The mirror didn't seem to be original to the dresser, so I thought I would find something else. I found this art deco mirror on Craig's List, thinking the shape would compliment the dresser, but now I don't like it. I tried a round gold mirror, but it seemed too modern for the dresser. It's now hanging in the entryway. Should I just replace the foggy mirror in the original and mount it? I don’t have anywhere else to put it. I included a pic of the original mirror over the dresser. I've had the brass lamps for years and can't part with them. I found some silk shades for the lamps which seems to have updated them some. Are they working or are they just too out of date? I don’t like the comforter and plan to replace it with a pintuck duvet from West Elm. I have two of the little mirrors above the lamp. I hung one to see what it looked like. Should I use them? I know I need a headboard. I bought fabric to make a tufted headboard, but I picked it out when the bed was against the wall with the big mirror on it. It’s the same solid color as the drapes. I either need to go with a different color or a print on the headboard or drapes, right? I hate to waste the headboard fabric. Please help me finish this room. I just found out family is coming to stay with us for a few weeks this summer.
