one room. one afternoon. one makeover

Recently did an afternoon makeover in one room of a friend’s house. She lives in a sweet Craftsman style home with loads of charm, and she has a lot of cool vintage pieces. She just needed someone to help her pull it all together to create a comfortable guest bedroom. We accomplished just that — in one afternoon, and using just what she already had in her home. We didn’t bring anything in from the outside, just “shopped” from other rooms in the home. Now the space feels charming and cozy — all ready for a house guest!

We hung beads and necklaces around a lampshade on the bedside chest.

A mix of personal vintage items next to the bed…

… and a gallery wall of B&W and vintage sepia-toned photos

Vintage toiletries and a pretty perfume bottle inside a vintage shelf

We put a vintage hat atop a lamp and leaned a vintage red suitcase against the Mid Century Modern dresser.
