While I was eliminating a few large items in the Guest Room,
and doing some general de-cluttering and staging.
I could not help but think if I should refresh the room
with Summer decor? Or should I just do a Guest Room Refresh? Refresh I did.
When packing up some pillows, I kept a pillow aside,
knowing I would use it in one of the rooms for the summer.
A faux grain sack pillow, Summer House.
I removed a small table that was under the mirror,
giving this area more of a sense of space and a clearer pathway to the bed and closet,
though I do love having small tables in a room to set little pretties on!
Years ago, I brought in a green wicker chair to this room
to use with the night stand doubling as a desk.
It then began the color scheme of blue, white and green.
In trying to keep things simple, I brought in these boxwood topiaries
and added more texture using vintage books.
A vintage ironstone pitcher filled with lavender sits on the desk/night stand
to add a beautiful soft scent to the room.
I packed away the antique quilts that were on the bench at the end of the bed.
The vintage French enamelware pitcher remains on the bench.
I also removed the basket that was underneath the bench filled with magazines.
A guest room needs magazines and a throw,
so these were placed in my French market basket.
Not much was needed to be taken away on this side of the room,
other than an antique round table that was to the left of the hutch.
It was one of those pieces that I loved and “found a spot” for it.
The blue and white garden stool that was next to the chair
shuffled over to the upper porch of blue and white.
The bedding has pretty much remained the same for a while in this room.
I occasionally switch out some pillows for the seasons.
I contemplated purchasing new bedding; however,
I thought it best to wait for the “right-sized” house.
It may be a while, so I have plenty of time to shop!
I want to show you where I have been spending most of my time lately!
At the kitchen island that has transformed into a packing station.
I am packing away things that I won’t be needing for a while.
Our storage unit is almost full.
My resident expert organizer thinks I will still have lots of room for more boxes.
Have a most beautiful day ….. I shall keep packing away!
