Blush in the Guest Room and A Winner

The Guest Room is Blushing? Or is it Bashful?  The Steel Magnolias would know!

Today, there is Blush in the Guest Room and A Winner!

When I was in Florida, a trip to HomeGoods to get something for my sister

yielded several things. A tablecloth that I used in my Floral Friday post,

a quilt for my sister, two pink or should I say blush pillows, and more.

Today, you will see how two pink/blush pillows and more, gave the guest room a bit of a refresh.

When I returned home from Florida, the next day I gathered some of my pink pretties

which included this beautiful ruffled throw placed in a French Market Basket

along with a great magazine for a guest to enjoy.

While in Florida, I was shopping for things to re-decorate my sister’s guest room.

I found this Asian vase in a  consignment shop there . . . (for me!)

I also used this vase  in my prior Floral Friday post.

I found  great pink/blush stock flowers when running my usual errands after a trip.

They sit beautifully on the bedside table which doubles as a desk.

One of the pink/blush pillows is placed on the “desk” chair.

The other was placed in the small chair by the hutch.

The chair is tucked into the corner under the antique painting.

I love the patina of the frame.

My newly acquired Juliska pitcher has found a new home in the guest room

along with the blue and white bowl of pink and lavender dried roses.

I added two darker pink textured pillows

to the bed, that were previously in the Master Bedroom.

I found them in the Pottery Barn clearance bin months ago.

With just a few additions/changes, I was able to refresh this room for Early Spring.

I shall be adding and changing some things in this room soon

to bring it into the full swing of Spring.
