Simply Spring in the Guest Room

I have been busy “springifying” each room in my house . .

~ ~ and now the guest room is dressed for Spring.

Guest Room/Tole Trays

The first thing I did to “Springify” the room was to add these tole trays. .

~ ~ of great floral colors. . .

~ ~ ~ ~ they replaced my trio of fabric framed art.

Guest Room/Tole Trays

I really love how the tole trays blend so well with the bed frame and chandy.

So come on in and welcome to the “Housepitality Suite” !!

Guest Room

This room will be filled with company this weekend . .

~ ~ and we can all use a bit of Spring!

Guest Room Blanket Chest

Placed a Spring vignette on the blanket chest at the foot of the bed.

Guest Room Blanket Chest

Filled the basket with things to read . . .

~ ~ and placed a “Springy” vintage tablecloth of pretty daisies.

Vintage Glove Form

. . . and I will have a little bouquet of flowers to “hand” them !

The vintage glove form is a gift from my sweet friend, Kristen.

Guest Room Night Stand

On the night stand to the left of the bed . .

~ ~ the faux hydrangeas were replaced with fresh Spring flowers.

Spring decor is not complete without a bird or a birdcage . .

Birdcage floral arrangement

. . . that is nestled in a floral arrangement in a reproduction ceiling tin container.

Guest room washstand/nightstand

. . . and a copy of the latest issue of Spring Cottage.

Guest Room

There are some changes in this side of the room . .

~ ~ can you spot them?

Guest Room Round Vintage Table

This table was previously in the sunroom . . .

Milk glass basket w/vintage glass fishing floats

A pop of color was needed in this milk glass basket of vintage fishing floats . .

~ ~ so I added pretty yellow daisies..

Spring flowers on a stack of vintage picnic baskets

This little Spring vignette is on top of something . .

~ ~ that was previously in the media room.

Stack of vintage picnic baskets

. . . a stack of vintage picnic baskets.

Guest room dresser

There is always room for more housing for birds!

French Wood Box

. . . that is beside my French Wood Box with the chicken stamps!

Guest room bathroom

There are some changes still in the process in this guest bathroom . .

Guest bath floral painting

This pretty painting that I bought at a moving sale in our neighborhood . .

~ ~ seems to fit well in this spot and certainly adds “Spring” to the room.

Guest bath table

I purchased this pretty little table at the sale too!

Vintage Tole Trays

So with the addition of pretty floral decor, beautiful fresh Spring flowers . . .

~ ~ a painting of Spring flowers in a vase and places for birds to nest . . .

~ ~ ~ ~ I think this room is ready for Spring!!!

  1. Shirley you always outdo yourself with all the extra touches and it still holds true the room is beautiful.

  2. Shirley, What a beautiful guest room, they would never want to leave! I’m green with spring envy over your collection of tole trays…and picnic baskets and French wood box. Your trays are so beautiful in contrast to the pale blue of your wall. I was thrilled to find two tole trays last week at a consignment shop but they are a wee bit shabbier than yours 🙂

  12. Love your springifying! The trays in the guest room and the springy floral additions look wonderful! I like that stack of lunch baskets making a table- very neat idea! I have a bird house really similar to the one you have withthe green top but it didn’t come with a stand like yours- that gives me an idea to see if I can find a way to elevate it! Lovely details throughout!

  19. I see you have “my room” all ready Shirley! How beautiful! You have the most marvelous eye for detail and beauty! Your nightstand really caught my eye! The soft green works so well with the blues in the room! As usual you outdid yourself!

  20. I’m packing my bags and heading to the Housepitality Suite – much nicer than any hotel suite!

    Love the toile trays and the picnic basket collection!

  38. I, too, love to use bird houses and nests in the spring. The room is so pretty. I love the iron bed. Is it an antique or is it available for purchase somewhere?

  39. Jeanette Price says

    Let me know when I can come down and stay in that gorgeous room of yours. The chandy is to die for. Did it come with all those crystals on it or did you add them? You have so much great reading material in there too. I could spend a few hours in there, I wouldn’t even bother you I promise.

  40. Absolutely beautiful, as always! I love the tole trays and how they play off the chancy and your bed. Also your bedding is gorgeous!!! Happy Spring!~~Angela
