Guest Bedroom Inspiration

The 3rd room on our list to update is our guest bedroom.  We painted this room a fun color because two of our guests once told us that if we painted this room a bright color, they'd never come stay with us again.  So after we dropped off our guests at the airport, we stopped at Lowe's and bought the most obnoxious, brightest color we could find.  

Note: Don't ever challenge DG or me or give us an ultimatium.  We're going to accept that every. single. time.  That's why we work; we are both hardheaded.

This picture was taken last year, and this room hasn't had much change in it.  We definitely need to get rid of the end tables and lights after we paint this room.  P.S. I don't know what this obsession with orange was the first two years of living here.  I promise I'm over that.

Here's what my inspiration is for this room:

Tips on accessorizing your home like the pros.

I love the shutter headboard, but in a cream color.  

Shutter decor.

Love these dried hydrangeas for decoration.

Take away the TV and this is perfect.

The idea of having the WiFi passcode in the bedroom is such an easy idea.  Y'all know you're asking for it any time you're at a friend's house.
