Well… progress in the guest room continues. Over the weekend I managed to wrap-up the painting (thankfully two coats was enough) before my parents stopped by for some youthful symphony and sushi. I also started repairs on the baseboards, although I still have a bit more work to do before they can get a new coat of paint. So, I’m not quite ready to share the “after” update, but with any luck, we should have some visuals by the end of the week.
What I thought I would share is some inspiration for the accent wall that I’m planning to paint behind the bed/headboard. About a year ago while we were prepping the condo for sale in London, I used a home-made Moroccan stencil to update the very beige dining room. Since our little guest room makeover is coming together on a non-existent budget, I thought this might be a good application to try again to bring some affordable interest into the tiny space.
Right now I’m wavering between two patterns, a herringbone and a geometric circle pattern.
Thoughts? I am kind of leaning towards the herringbone just because it seems like a simpler pattern to apply (tape rather than DIY stencil). Cast a vote in the comments below… as I do with Jeff’s suggestions, I might just take it into consideration.
Have a great week!
