Guest Room Wish List

I feel a little obsessed with interiors at the moment. I've been buying far too many interior-related magazines and, once the kids are in bed, scouring Pinterest and fellow bloggers sites for ideas.  

Most of the work we want to do to the house can't be done until we have our windows replaced as there's simply no point in making more work for ourselves. But that hasn't stopped me from trying to get some ideas and plans together and I thought I would share some of my ideas for the guest room.

Soft greys and stripes are both favourites of mine and so this Arctic Stripe Grey Bedspread from Yorkshire Linen  is my first choice for the room. 

We have wall lights either side of the bed which need replacing - brassy with etched glass (so dated) - with something modern, yet simple. These Ikea Arstid wall lamps fit the bill. 

I'm a big fan of Janet Bell's artwork and I think this piece, Blossom Tree, would make a nice focal point. 

The simple design of this Emma Bridgewater Lavender Daisy Mustard Vase really appeals to me and would look nice on the windowsill with some fresh lavender (from our garden) popped in it.



I'm a fan of the house shaped shelves that I've been seeing recently. I've avoided buying them as I haven't been sure where to put them. This set of 3 Pastel House Shaped Display Units Shelves are lovely. I think I would mount them on the wall and fill them with a few trinkets but with the soft pastels I could just as easily leave them empty. 

Of course, you have to have a mirror in a guest room and this Gallery Direct Antique Mirror would fit in nicely and I could easily add to it if I wanted with 2 or 3 others to make a feature. 

The curtains we have in there at the moment are purple and have a sheen to them. In short, I hate them. These Pencil Pleat Curtains are the ideal replacement. 

I think any further ornaments could do with being fairly neutral in colour so that they could fit in with any future colour scheme. This Grey Hare Ornament would made a nice addition and its a bargain price from George Home. 

Finally, I love cushions and a couple of these Chenille Knitted Cushions would complete the look for me. 


So there we have it. My guest room wish list. A mix of styles but I think they pull together quite nicely and will work well in the space we have.  Is there anything you are lusting after that you think would fit in? Do share!
