Eclectic Guest Bedroom Ideas

When I shared our family room and kitchen in the What’s Your Style Series, one style those rooms (and all rooms in my home) share is “eclectic”.

Visiting from the beautiful bedroom at Shabby Love? Welcome, friends!

When you do what you love, specifically on a small budget; thrift stores, flea markets, estate sales, yard sales and Craigs List become favorite sources for unique, eclectic decor. Our guest bedroom is no exception.

and a mix of old and new.

Small budget? Wrap a canvas you already own with pretty wrapping paper to freshen up old decor.

Layer the bed with a folded top sheet topped with a throw blanket. Cat optional.

Eclectic: mismatched furniture, a mix of pattern and colors, collected-over-time gallery wall, DIY accents, a painted floor and flea market finds.

I’m in the process of planning a re-do on our other guest room/dressing room. Our master bedroom is a disaster since the day we moved in but always seems to get pushed further down the priority list. What’s your style and favorite bedroom in your home?

Seaside Shelter

Meet:  Dani from

Seaside Shelter blog

The guest room in Dani’s house has been redone more times than any other room in their house. It has housed numerous guests, served as a home office, slept an infant son, housed two foster daughters and was most recently turned into a sitting/television/game room. Spring has arrived in Newport and Dani has lots of overnight company so as of last week the “round room” as they call it, is back to- and will forever remain – The Guest Room.
The biggest challenge in choosing a purpose for this room has been that it is round. The room is actually a turret with only the inside wall being flat. It’s good sized, 16′ in diameter, but without flat walls, where do you put your furniture?
Secondly, if you stand in the center of the room and speak, your voice will swirl around your head in the most awkward and uncomfortable echo (the office concept was short lived).

Details:
Dani took down the matchstick shades to make the wood a real focal point to create a clean, white backdrop.
DIY plank/pallet headboard.”drift”…
Shopping around the house is always budget friendly! The basket that held the kid’s video games now holds spare blankets for guests.
Antique ceiling tin accented lamp…
Hemp tie-back accent has a nautical feel and adds texture…
I LOVE Dani’s latest yard sale finds too!

Dressing Room Reveal

Image

I had been wanting to give the upstairs guest bedroom some dressing room touches for a while now. We have another guest room on the main floor with it’s own guest bathroom AND we rarely have overnight guests (4 nights in nearly 5 years). I still want it to function as a guest room – it has the most comfy bed and when the girls come over and raid my closet (we share clothes and shoes)…it’s a fun place to hang out and talk style and fashion. Ready to decorate your home but short on cash? Apartment Guide can help you find inexpensive decorating ideas for how to update an area of your home without spending a lot of money.

My dressing room sits catty-corner across the hall from the master bedroom, but it’s not a big inconvenience and I love having a ‘girly’ space!  Let’s head in…

 

I hope you don’t mind around 40 pictures…there’s so much to see! 🙂
