Hello Dear Readers!
I thought that it was time to show you
more of the Guest Room. It is probably
one of the few rooms that is somewhat complete
with the exception of the window treatments
and one piece of art that is waiting
to be framed.
The windows are wide open so controlling
the light was difficult.
Welcome to the Hickory Cottage Guest Room!
I used the same bedding that was
in the former guest room.
I love to change the bedding
for each season; however, this bedding
has remained on the guest room bed
in the former house for a long time.
Even though the duvet cover is a king size,
(by Pottery Barn purchased years ago)
it worked just fine on this queen bed.
The Ralph Lauren lamps that were in the
Great Room in the former house, now have
a home in the Guest Room.
The bed and the dresser were actually
in the Master Bedroom in our former home.
A few years ago,
I had purchased a new bed for the Master Bedroom;
however, we had did not set it up in that room,
as we knew we were planning on placing our home
on the market soon.
The dresser is adorned for summer.
A Pottery Barn hurricane is filled with sea glass
topped with a starfish.
A photo of your “host and hostess”
to welcome you with some mints for the pillows.
My mission was to find bedside tables
in my “inventory”
that would blend/coordinate with the
bed and dresser as the original bedside tables
are now in the dining room.
This vintage cottage style table
was in the Guest Room previously
and thought it would be a nice
“collected look” for the new Guest Room.
The pretty flower sconce on the wall
was a gift from a friend for our new home.
On this table is my framed poem welcoming guests.
On the left side of the room is the closet.
I placed a small table between the closet door
and the bathroom door. You can see a sneak peek
of the bathroom. Every bedroom has its
The right side of the room has a
“new to me” bedside table.
It’s a table that I found at my
favorite consignment shop
(Always Home in Durham, NC)
It is made by Baker Furniture that
extends to a larger size.
I thought I was going to use it
at the end of a hallway; however, it
is perfect here next to the bed.
The bench that was at the foot of the bed,
now resides under the window for added
Here is one of the views should you
be seated on the bench.
This would be your view as you wake up
and greet the sun.
So happy that you came by to
visit the Hickory Cottage Guest Room.
I wish you all a most beautiful day . . .
AND . . . . .
