We did two mini-makeovers yesterday as part of our recent Guest Room Giveaway contest. As you may know, these one-hour makeovers are basically styling sessions, where we come in and finesse a space using the homeowners’ existing furnishings and accessories. It’s a great way to create a finished look without spending a lot of money.
Kimberly F.’s guest bedroom is in transition from kiddo bedroom to guest bedroom, so we focused our attention in her living room–specifically, her built-in bookshelves. This is one of those often neglected areas that can really make a difference to the overall decor once it’s styled. Take a look at the before and after:
With the bookshelves styled, this previously overlooked wall becomes a feature in the living room.
From there, we met up with Rob B. and his wife Anna. We focused on their guest bedroom–guest suite, actually. Rob and Anna have a separate guest apartment off the garage, complete with bathroom and kitchenette. The apartment gets some use from their kiddos as well, so it’s truly a mulit-functional space. One hour of styling for several zones is a tight squeeze, but we managed to pull off some nice touches and created some opportunities to showcase their young daughter’s artwork–a fun, free decorating resource! Take a look:
With so much square footage to cover, we literally flew into a frenzy, but for the most part it all came down to a matter of artfully arranging everything that was already in the space. This is a great example of how one short hour may be all you need to create a more welcoming environment for your guests at the holidays!
