#GrazianoBungalow - The Guest Room (After)

Our little boho guest room is finally complete! As you may remember from my before post, this room used to be a fairly masculine office.
But this is how we wanted it to look and feel! Lighter, brighter, and just overall a more fun place to welcome guests.
So as soon as we moved in, we got to work transforming this space. I shared photos of our initial progress in my last post, where we removed the built in desk, removed the rug and carpet strips, sanded and stained the floors, and painted the walls in a lighter shade of "Classic Grey" by Benjamin Moore. Once all that more time consuming (and messy) stuff was out of the way, it was really just time for the fun part - the decorating!
While our master bedroom is much more neutral (more on that coming soon!), I was going for that "California modern" look in this bedroom and really wanted to have some fun with color. The first thing we added to the corner of this space was one of the peacock chairs that we found at an antique store and actually sat in at our wedding. As you might remember, the other one found a home in our dining room! I tossed a vintage indigo pillow on the chair and hung some of my favorite Batik-inspired prints on the wall and we had ourselves a pretty cozy corner that would act as the inspiration for the entire room. 
From there, I began unpacking loads of boxes I had packed with frames, collectibles, and decorative objects to fill the built-in bookcases. The room actually looked really funny for a while, because all the shelves were completely styled before we even had any furniture!
Next, we brought in the woven bed (which I admittedly stole from my childhood bedroom at home), and I love how much texture it brings to the room. My bedroom at home was filled with turquoise accents and very coastal which obviously works perfectly with this bed, but thankfully I think it also works just as well (if not better) in here! Once the bed was in, we piled lots of modern complimentary pillows onto it and also a few of my favorite vintage rugs on the floor, both which brought the pops of color to the room that I was looking for.
After that we installed a woven light fixture, which was a HUGE improvement from the ceiling fan. Finally, we worked with Marc of Hopes Woodshop (who also built our dining room table) again to install a custom closet door. There wasn't an existing door when we moved into the house, and it was such an eyesore to have boxes piled in there with no door to hide them. Marc did such an amazing job!! I mean, is that not the most epic, beautiful set of sliding closet doors you've ever seen? I am obsessed with herringbone (if you couldn't tell already) and sent Marc this photo & this photo as inspiration for our closet. He nailed it!
I'm so happy our second bedroom is complete just in time for summer visitors! You can shop this post below, and feel free to check back here or at #grazianobungalow for more home updates, Thanks for following along as we make this house our home!
