Last week we mentioned that we've been really busy working on this Pepto Bismol pink room. Trust me, I love me some Pepto once in a while, but on the walls... not so much.
Does this guest room make you want to come and visit? I mean, look, it has it's own personal gym, cable TV, and extra pillows! What more could you want? We're talking 5 Stars Baby!
Ha! It's okay, I know the anonymous homeowners of this guest room and they don't mind a little teasing. Trust me, with how awesome the room is looking, last night Jess and I told them that we definitely want a sleepover once it's all finished!
The grand reveal with come on April 24th, but until then here are some major spoilers!
Drool-worthy hardware We are sooo crushing on the furniture upscale we did. It was incredibly simple, but makes a BIG impact!
Perfect Colors Have you ever walked into the paint department and felt like certain colors were just screaming for you to notice them? That's completely how this pallette came together. Jess and I met at Home Depot one night and honestly within 3 minutes we had our minds made up.
Umm Gears? Just wait and see. We're actually not 100% sure about all the details for this project, but we know it's going to be awesome. As we told the homeowners... "Trust Us"
Industrial Flair Notice a trend? One of the coolest things about this room is the awesome juxtaposition of styles. We're pairing some funky modern pieces with an amazing 18th Century find. Can't wait to see it all come together!
Honoring Service The homeowners really wanted to incorporate this picture of their grandfather, who served our country. I'm totally a non-emotional gal, but this picture sort of gets to me. One of my good friends Jen, would be so proud of me (she's uber emotional and loves all things military)!
Did We Mention Juxtaposition? Haha! From Army to Blue Birds in a single bound. Don't worry, we're not crazy (okay, maybe a tad) and this will all work out nicely!
Examples of Love & Commitment We have a very cool gallery project for the room. The homeowners (which btw it's really weird to refer to them as "the homeowners" and not just Connie and Mark... Oops! Did I just accidentally reveal their secret identity!) Anyhow... The homeowners had a collection of old wedding pictures from both sides of their parents and grandparents. They've had some amazing examples of what it takes to make a marriage work for the long run. They're going to have a special place to recognize that commitment and how God has blessed those couples in awesome ways.
Have you heard Jason Mraz's new song? I Won't Give Up is one of my top ten favorites right now and it's a great reminder that the road isn't always easy, but it's always worth it. Go listen to it and I'll warn you right now, that it will be stuck in your head, but it's a pretty good thing to be singing all day!
So how's that for some spoilers? What do you think of the direction we're headed in? Did you love the Song as much as I did?
