Our Home {The HopeChest House}

I’m opening myself up here; taking you guys along with me as I give you a front seat look at the challenges a decorator will face when decorating her OWN HOUSE! Let’s begin with “The Guest Bedroom”.

Here's what I'm thinking....

I have several vintage furniture pieces I've gathered that would help me create this look. My ex-ribbon chest I lovingly painted and distressed to give it just the right finish three years ago. Since I've got another great storage idea for all my precious ribbons up my sleeve {more on that later} I can repurpose this piece. I also plan on repurposing my vintage french country china hutch. The base would make a great tv stand.

Since the only people who come to visit are our moms and my husbands sister I can justify giving the space a more femenine feel. Imagine a quaint French B&B. I plan on keeping the wall color neutural {a warm antique white} which will give me the option of changing the look completely for very little money just by changing the bedding and accessories.

I found a great bedding set a couple of weeks ago at Belk's for 75% OFF!! You know how you have a vision in your head but you can't seem to find exactly what you want?? Well thats what happened to me a couple of weeks ago when shopping for this project. I literally NEVER shop in Belk's, but it was on the way home and I figured "WHAT THE HECK". They had this HUGE sale on their bedding that day, so I scored a beautiful bedding set that just happen to be exactly what I was looking for.

Now I'm off to the paint store. Here's a sneak peek at what's to come.
