You dudes are the best. Thanks for leaving all of those super sweet comments about the new guest room! A few of my girls asked me where all of that junk came from, and so now I’m going to take a million years to write up a list of resources, ’cause I’m guessing a few others are also curious. Even though I should be brining a dang turkey. P.S. I’m going to set up my Thanksgiving table today – you should watch me do it on Instagram, dontchya think? I’m VERY excited about it. Okay, so here we go:
Paint color: Peachtree by Behr — This color is at once amazing and very tricky. We’ve used it on our living room walls as well, and it changes so much throughout the day. I like that the color can stand on its own, but also act as a neutral with a million different colors. However, if you’re just looking for a hint of peach, I highly recommend you go a shade or two lighter on the paint chip. It’s darker than you think it’s going to be unless you have tons of natural light in the room. It also needs a few coats even with the primer-blend paint, so plan accordingly.
Canopy and window drapes: Ritva curtains from Ikea with additional black, grosgrain trim
Floral sheets: vintage from Etsy
Red Kantha quilt: Ebay — The quilt is reversible and made from vintage saris. I cannot love it more – it’s completely gorgeous in its imperfections. I ordered from this seller and the shipping was fast with the most adorable packaging. Highly recommended.
Velveteen lumbar pillow with greek key trim: DIY
Light fixture: Floral paper lantern — I bought this thing a million years ago, but a quick google search for “floral paper lantern” will give you a large selection. I like this ikat example from Luna Bazaar.
Black storage ottomans: Target
Rug: Erslev rugs from Ikea, hand painted (tutorial coming soon!)
Sheepskin rug: Ikea
Paintings: vintage – found at antique stores
All of the furniture was collected over the years from Craigslist and alleys, previous apartments etc. Except for the amazing red secretary, which was a birthday gift from my parents. Holy cow, you guys. I LOVE IT. When they first got it in at their shop it was a dingy grey wood – totally not exciting at all. I begged them to paint it red and now it is so delicious, I could eat it right up.
Love you so much, sexy red hutch. Love you.
Of course, let me know if you have any other questions about the space. I can’t say enough just how much I love it. And it really did come together with stuff we already owned, which makes it even more special, I think. I only purchased the items mentioned in the first panel of this post – and the sheepskin rug – pretty good, right? I swear it’s that paint color – everything goes with it.
Anyway … it’s time to get my turkey rub on! I hope you have the best Thanksgiving ever and you do things that make you happy. xoxo
