The Guest Room, Undone

I really would prefer showing you this room after it's all fixed up cute, but since so many of you asked to see more pictures with the furniture, I decided "why not?" Feel free to offer any suggestions on color, etc. In case you didn't read my post from yesterday, I'm trying to decide if I should work around the vintage fabric in the little chair or have the chair redone. The room is quite large, like 12x10.4 and 9' ceilings. I had always thought I would want the walls painted a warmer, darker hue but something that would still allow the beauty of the wood to show. The furniture is made of burled walnut.
I purchased this three piece bedroom set in Oklahoma many, many years ago for a song. It was at my first estate sale. I was all by myself and scared to death to make an offer. After it was clear I had won, some sweet little old man tapped me on the shoulder and said, "it's okay honey...I'll buy it from you if your husband doesn't want you to have it." That did make me feel better.
Please try and pretend the accessories aren't there.
Another piece of furniture in here is an old Singer sewing machine from my husband's mother. I would love to find a beautiful old secretary to add some height in furniture. It's always nice to have a desk in a guest room, don't you think?
Come and around and then you will see you are back to where you started.

********************************************************************************

I have two other things to tell you. Remember the lady on Halloween that I didn't recognize because she had lost so much weight? Well it happened again. I ran into an old neighbor at Target. She called me by name and then I realized who she was. Because of the last incident, I said nothing. That night in bed I was mad at myself for not telling her how good she looked. Will we ever get it right?

**********************************************************************************

Friday morning I had two friends over for a little breakfast. I couldn't wait to pull out the fox stole I had found the day before. THEY LOVED IT! Cindy has a daughter getting married on Saturday and she asked if she could borrow it for the wedding. She had purchased a faux fur at TJMaxx for $40 and said she would never wear it again and she liked mine MUCH better! We were all just sitting there smiling over my great find.

Well, I love the bedroom set. Is the fabric on the chair in good shape? If so..what do you think about the color of the flowers on the chair. Do you think that color on the walls or a shade of that color would go well with wood on your bedroom furniture? Michele

Bo said...

Hi Donna...you really scored on your first ever estate sale...the bedroom suite is so nice & it looks like it has been lovingly cared for. Now, for my 2 cents... paint is cheaper tnan upholstery (unless you can do it yourself)...
so I'd try painting first and leaving the chair as is...it looks like it's in great shape. I'm so happy for you that your dear friend relinquished it. ;-) Bo

Well, because I've seen some of the other parts of your house, and kind of know what colors you like....I think I'm for trying a paint on the wall, kind of rusty, or cinnamon colored. I would go with something like what the flowers in the chair are colored. then you can find a throw for the bottom of the bed, or pick up that color in a dust ruffle and matching pillows on the bed. I think you should get a great piece of wrought iron for a wall in that room, because the walls can handle something strikng and large. An old gate might be perfect. What do you think of these suggestions?

Another thing I might suggest is to move the chair next to the little vanity dresser you , where you have the lamp, and maybe make a cute ottoman to go with your chair.....just kind of thinking out loud here.

Cathy said...

Great size room and love the furniture. I'm emailing you a picture of a room that I love. She has used antique furniture and warm colors.

Miss Janice said...

I agree with Southern Inspiration. I see a darker color on the walls...

Melissa Miller said...

Hi Donna, Very nice furniture! The chair fabric is so lovely. I don't think I would change it. How about a paint color in a soft blue? It would compliment the chair fabric and dark wood tones. ~Melissa :)

Laurie - Decorating Fanatic said...

Oh! Oh! I am jumping up and down wanting so bad to say "Keep the chair fabric!" I too agree that a warm gold on the walls would warm up the room and make your gorgeous antique furniture pop out!! I don't think you would be disappointed. The paint color in my downstairs is called StarFire by KellyMoore paints and it changes with the sunlight, just so warm and cozy and makes the dark woods really warm up. You could also find a Maize or Cream color matelasse coverlet from the LinenSource catalog and they usually have great prices & sales. The furniture is gorgeous and that chair is pointing you in the direction it wants to go!! Good luck - can't wait to see what you do with it. ~ Laurie

I really, really appreciate all the comments and suggestions. Looks like I will reconsider and keep the little vintage print after all! thanks so much for the ideas.
