Inspired by your ideas, I headed to my usual home decor stores to find things that would go with the turquoise floral pillows, and to find some plates to go around the bird picture.
Oh, here's the "before" shot, in case you missed that post.
BTW, I did take the brown floral pillow out of the yard sale pile. :)
The stores were running over with beach decor! I'd love to go "beachy", but that would mean a big change in the room, which I really don't want to do.
I was on a mission, and then...I saw this shell...
...on a lamp. It was $29 on clearance! You know what a bargain hunter I am...well, I just had to get it.
Then, I saw these shams...on clearance, just $18 for the pair!..and the colors worked with the lamp. Whoo! Hoo! I was on a roll!..in the wrong direction.
As you see, my shopping plan to find something to go with the turquoise floral pillows, went out the window...or down the coast.
A couple of you mentioned the idea of using bamboo in the room, which I like. I added the woven bamboo basket from the family room. It'll hold things like tissues or lotion for guests.
I'd love to get matchstick bamboo blinds for the window, too.
I found this lamp the other day at a consignment shop...half price...just $ 9.
I haven't decided if I'll leave the base the cream color, or try some ASCP on it.
The only other change I made was to hot glue some khaki twill tape to the shell lamp shade, to add a softer look.
They're just small changes, but I'm happy with the way the room's progressing.
Hope y'all like the changes so far, and thanks for getting me off my bum and motivating me to do something with the guest bedroom.
