Today’s post is a fun one! Before I share the beautiful details of a two-week, budget guest room transformation, I want to take you back in time about three years to the early days of my design business. I was just starting to toy with the idea of trying to do interior design as a career, and the first people who were willing to be my client guinea pigs were some of our dear friends, the Hagoods. At the time, they were renovating their downtown Nashville condo, and I got to help furnish and style it. I had so much fun, and it was one of the first indicators for me that I had found something I wanted to do forever! I’m so grateful for these friends! You can see more about that renovation here.
The Hagoods have now moved out of their downtown condo to a home in the suburbs, and when they asked me to help makeover one of their guest rooms, I was so there for it.
We decided to make this an extra special challenge by doing the entire transformation while the couple was away in Costa Rica on an Anniversary getaway! I spent about a week beforehand placing orders and doing some shopping, and then we did the entire setup in a few hours while they were gone! It was so fun to get texts from her when they came back to a whole new room. (This is an example of the Two-Week Transformation process that we offer to clients. If you're interested in having us handle the details of an entire room makeover, let us know!)
This room used to be a nursery for the former owners, but for the purposes of creating a classy guest space, we knew that the pink paint, gold birds, and pink plastic chandelier needed to go.
A little shopping and less than $1500 later, and we have a totally new space! The perfect welcoming spot for friends and family who come to visit.
