In my last post I shared the Pinterest mood board for my guest bedroom. Now I’ve started work on the room there are a few key decorating decisions to make. Mainly about fitted furniture, feature walls, and lighting. I’m hoping for some help here – read on and let me know what you think!
Tackling the Guest Bedroom
The guest bedroom is the room I struggled with most when I moved in. It was incredibly cold, with just one small radiator hiding behind the door. It was challenged for lighting and electric sockets. And there was a LOT of fitted furniture. Which I had mixed feelings on; a fabulous amount of storage, but over-whelming for the room. In particular the over-bed storage unit didn’t particularly impress the guests sleeping under it! So, it went on the list for decoration sooner rather than later.
Planning a Scheme for the Home Office
Back in May, I showed you the pictures of the room which is intended to become the home office. I then called in electricians to ask about moving the overhead light and adding a few more power sockets.
One thing led to another and here we are, 2 months on and a full house re-wire later! The office got temporarily delayed whilst planning the lights for the entire house in a hurry (see my post on lighting deliberations here and my post on whether to go for a rewire here) and packing up as much as possible to make way for the electricians. The upshot is, I have nice new power points everywhere, but a lot of holes to patch as well.
