Our main guest bedroom got some major love over the weekend. We hung up beautiful artworks from St. Frank and dressed it up with fun textiles. I'm really happy with how it all turned out. The room was not very inspiring before. My heartmate tells me that it's the room where I put all his things I don't particularly like. And there's some truth to that. Ouch (sorry babes!). Now, that I've donated all of my hearmate's questionable stuff, I'm partnering with St. Frank to show you how to spice up your bedroom with art and textiles! And our bed and breakfast is now open for business!
- Invest on a large piece of art to hang above your bed. It'll fill up that blank space and add a focal point to the room. This framed embroidered blue Otomí is handmade by the indigenous Otomí people in central Mexico.
- For your pillows, use colors from the artwork that's hanging above your bed so there's cohesiveness. Here, I picked a pair of vintage indigo pillows.
- For my headboard , I covered a piece of plywood with mud cloth. If you already have a headboard, you can simply drape over it.
- Because I love layering with textiles, white bedding is the way to go and acts as blank canvas to layer on as many textiles as you wish!
- Use large rugs to cover up ugly carpet. I'm all about large rugs nows. Ever since I got an 8x10, I don't think I can ever go smaller. When it comes to rugs, bigger is definitely better. I found this 9x12 on sale for like 75% off when Justina and I were in NYC for our book release party at Calypso.
- Use a bit of symmetry to create a sense of order. I used matching night stands and vintage lamps to balance things out.
