Create a Restful Guest Retreat Makeover

Welcome to One Room, Three different ways! Where I decided to create a restful guest retreat makeover.

I am so excited to have you join us as we play~! The rules these amazing group of bloggers had to follow was they had to
1.take a room in their home and transform it into 3 distinct spaces over 3 days.
2.They had to mostly “shop”their homes.
3.They could spend up to a total $100 for all three rooms if they wanted to, but were not required to.
Fun tween bedroom with blue and magenta
I chose to turn my Middle’s pre-tween room with a restful guest retreat makeover.I tried to go more minimalist on this space and keep it truly restful.

I started by turning her bed the other way and then grabbing a bed quilt from the other room.I love the way the sun hits her room around 2 in the afternoon, it gives it a beautiful and golden glow.

I hung my friend, Tara’s, sign and pulled a small side table from my living room to stand in as a nightstand, I also added a kitchen chair with a few guest towels.
Bird pillow on a striped cover on a bed
One of my purchases was an $18 bird pillow from Homegoods. I draped a table runner for my kitchen table as an accent across the foot of the bed to break up the stripes and add a pop of color.

The bedside lamp has been sitting in my garage waiting for our flooded family room to get started and finished.
Vintage clock and jar of peonies on a nightstand table
I had a few peonies left in the yard and put them in a sweet vintage mason jar, I grabbed the vintage clock from downstairs.
Stripped bedding and bird pillow and artwtok
The vintage bird print was from my upstairs hallway.

It’s an easy way to Create a Restful Guest Retreat Makeover! I would love to keep it like that all of the time!

With a vintage suitcase for an accent, I would stay in there if I could!

  1. OMG! i loooove this room. can i come stay, lol? you did an awesome job pulling things together. i really like the bird pillow and print.

  2. I’m a great house guest – what time should I arrive? Although I’m sure your daughter wouldn’t be too happy to have me curled up on the floor next to her!!

    The bedroom looks amazing – so relaxing. Love the runner at the foot of the bed – genius!

    So happy to be part of this challenge with you – it really made me look at my living room in a whole new light (and I love the final result)!

  3. Jennifer… What a fantastic idea for a series! I am loving popping around and seeing what these truly clever gals have come up with! Your vintage inspired bedroom is just lovely… and you are right, the sunlight is perfect… soft and dappled light bouncing around the room… so pretty!

  4. Are reservations being takes as yet?? I feel as if I had stepped back in time to a much slower and sweeter time…. luv the vintage look to the room.
    I am having such fun popping about to all the rooms.
    Thanks Jennifer .
    Hugs, Gee

  5. What a super fun idea to change your rooms using what you have. Too often we get stuck, design it once and leave it that way. Can’t wait to see them all.

  6. Although I can certainly see why Option 3 was what your daughter kept, I have to say this one is my favorite! I love all of the little details!
