Be our guest: Bedroom Reveal

The wait is up! Welcome to the newest addition to our little lodge- our new & improved guest room. We set out to create a cozy little space that allows our guests to sit back, relax and get comfortable. So with no further ado, let’s take a look around…
The blue tones in this guest bedroom are very cohesive.
These vintage baseballs and bowl of clothespins add rustic decor elements.
Of course, we had to keep our love for all things nautical, preppy, and vintage alive in the home of our sweet little guests. Did you expect any different?
The towel rack against the wall works great next to the blue nightstand.
The towel rack (reused from our bathroom makeover) provides our guests with fresh, white towels- a guest room must-have thanks to this fabulous list of guest room essentials.
The seahorse decor adds a beach element to the guest room.
This comfy blue chair pairs well with the patterned accent pillows.
This fabulous chair was under $100 from Kirkland’s! With a few accessories and some layering of pillows and blankets, I love how this space instantly became a cozy area for our guests to kick-off their shoes and r.e.l.a.x. The only thing missing… beach along the horizon.
This vintage red lantern adds a pop of color to the coffee table.

The $2 thrift store lantern is the perfect pop of red & one of my favorite parts of this room.

This white dresser provides plenty of storage and looks great on the wood floors.

Instead of hanging the mirror, I decided to prop it against the wall to create a less “formal” look. I scored that gem for $18 at my favorite HomeGoods!

Using a measuring cup as a flower vase adds a whimsical decor element.
These decor accessories like the red light house and ceramic dog add cute details to the space.
Each little accessory is a treasure that adds character to the space while reflecting some of Matt and my favorite things. We love the quirky, personal touches of places we love to stay, so why not bring this idea home for our visitors?
This wooden pallet sign adds character to the guest room theme.
And one of my all time favorite DIY projects in the room- our new pallet sign! Using this tutorial, I created a personalized sign that welcomes our guests into “the Lodge at Longview”. Did I mention the whole sign was less than $5?
This little navy wooden tray is great for leaving your guests snack and drinks.
And who doesn’t want a little snack in their guest room?
Fresh flowers in a rustic can add a farmhouse feel to the guest room.

Fresh flowers don’t hurt either 😉

This vintage red lantern adds to the lodge themed guest room.
According to the boss, there’s officially vacancy at the Lodge and this pretty little guest room is waiting for its first reservation. Any takers?
