The Guest Room – A Slight Change of Plans

Last week, after all that talk about pink paint, I had a change of heart. Although I love the color, when I laid all of the bedding together and compared it to the paint chip, the colors were off. I intended for the pink walls to draw out the reds and pinks from the throw pillow fabric.


Unfortunately, the shades of red and dark pink did not coordinate with Quaint Peche at all. I made a rookie mistake. I bought the paint before the accessories.

After going back to the drawing board, I came up with this revised plan.

Captivating Cream is a pale yellow-orange. It looks beautiful with the entire color scheme of the guest room, so no additional changes were necessary.

At the moment, after one coat, it looks way too yellow. I am second-guessing myself (again!) However, I think that with the addition of bedding and accessories, the color will fade into the background more.

This week, I also did a little shopping at Wayfair. I picked up two of these antique brass table lamps. Since there is only one wall sconce in the room, additional lighting is a necessity.


I still need to buy some bed skirts and find artwork. Once that is done, the guest room will be ready for a steady stream of summer visitors. Come on over!
