My lovelies, thanks for checking in on my guest bedroom makeover. If you missed the first installment, please click here.
To be honest, I had the roman shades installed by my hubby two weeks ago but they were too wrinkled so I didn't want to show them to the world yet. I have thought of ironing the wrinkles out but I didn't get around doing it.
Fortunately as the weeks go by, they became less wrinkled. Here they are!
Bye-bye ugly blinds! I am so happy with how the roman shades turned out. I have been obsessing over these beautiful roman shades (with ribbon trim) for a while and decided to splurge for a change! Knowing that my bed will have a tall headboard that will be covering half of my windows, getting the wider (and more expensive) roman shades is the only way to go so they would show more. If I had opted for the smaller sized shades, I can only mount them inside the window frames. Hanging the shades as high as possible help to create the illusion of a higher ceiling.
As promised, the bed was assembled last weekend. Before we proceed to the pictures, I would like to say thank you again to the wonderful people at Arhaus, especially to Kimberly for providing me this beautiful bed. Without their generosity, this makeover would not be possible!
Let's revisit my design plan again.
This room is about 40% completed so far but I am excited to show you our progress.

Although this room is barely finished, you can already see a huge difference with the new pieces that we brought in. As you may have noticed already, there are no pillows and no bed sheets on the mattress yet. We have removed our old pillows and our old sheets and is waiting for our new ones . I supposed the missing pieces are okay because we are here for the bed today, yes?
I also love the stunning silhouette and graceful curves, it looks very feminine and elegant!
Handcrafted in solid wood, the bed is quite heavy, which is a good thing. The bed came in two separate pieces, a headboard and a platform. The only assembling we had to do was putting the two pieces together using eight bolts. Easy peasy!
Another item I decided to splurge on is this Dana Gibson leopard lumbar in pink! I have been admiring it for a while and since I can't put any decorative object above my bed (artwork, mirror, etc), I figured getting a pretty, whimsical pillow would be a great solution to jazz up my bed.
I love my stunning table lamps! The gourd lamp base and black lampshade with gold lining are from Target. It look substantial and has an expensive look but only cost a fraction of the price compared to the high end versions. If you like them too, grab them fast because the quantities are limited, both in store and online. I actually had to make a few trips to Target to get the shades and then go online to order the lamp bases. These things are flying off the shelves, let me tell you!
Another wonderful Target find is this fabulous campaign side table I purchased earlier this year knowing I will be making over the guest bedroom down the road.
Unfortunately, the beautiful green is not available anymore. Other colors are still available though.
