Our Warm + Cozy Guest Bedroom Refresh

This post is in partnership with Leesa. I guess you could say that our home, room by room, has been seeing a lot change – large (see exhibit A: our upside down living room) and small (see exhibit B: our home studio). It started as more of a feeling, a need for a lightening up, a […]

The Guest Room Game Plan

The guest room in our Chicago home was one of the very first spaces we completed after the initial wave of renovation. Do you remember? It started as a somewhat-crumbling tan shoebox, and one of the most time-consuming tasks of the makeover was repairing the drywall. As a bit of backstory, our home turned 131-years-old this […]

The Guest Room: Now Accepting Guests!

Our guest room is complete! And good thing, because we have a crew of friends stopping in every other weekend through December. Now instead of welcoming them with apologies (um, you don’t mind the joint compound on the walls, right? Oh, and that closet door sticks; you don’t need to use it, do you?), we […]

Originally intended for somewhere in the condo, Kim scooped up the (then $50) light, with the intention of converting it to a hardwired ceiling […]

Headboard!

The guest room just upstaged our sad, untouched bedroom by a landslide. This headboard, by the way? We’ve had it for years! Scott spotted it in the alley behind our former condo building while walking Jack. He ran inside, yelled inaudible words of excitement until I followed him downstairs, and minutes later, we were hauling […]

Shelves + a Desk In the Guest Room!

There are cute things happening in the guest room! Let’s go! This month, we teamed up with Ace Hardware to gather supplies that would warm up our guest room and make it a place that would be inviting for our friends and family. For this project, we put our vintage school desk to work, incorporating […]

Let’s Talk About the Guest Room (and Kohler Too)

It’s been a bit of a funny week, as I’ve been out of town for the first half traveling to gorgeous Kohler, Wisconsin! (Every year, Scott and I make a promise that we’ll leave the city for the weekend and take a drive north to see the changing leaves, and although he wasn’t able to […]
