Black, White and Red Bedroom Makeover

What's black and white and red all over?  Our Guest Bedroom.  You may remember the first post.  If not click here .  .  .

Then I posted about the quick Christmas make over. 

If you'd like to see the entire post, click here .  

Well, the Nativity Scene and snow men have been put away.  Is it really June?  Today is rainy and dreary, so I don't get to play in the garden.  What a great day for a quick make over!  It's amazing just how much stuff I have tucked away in closets.  Let's see what can be thrown together for a summer guest room. 

Check out the comforter I found!  It makes me think of a garden lattice.  Get this!  It reverses to polka dots and came with polka dot sheets!  What's not to like?

I went with a garden theme this time. 

One window valance holds a bird house and my favorite ceramic birds. 

The other one holds a village of summer houses. 

They're very similar to a Christmas village, but Summer-y. 

I have this seriously cool chandalier Fabulous Aunt gave me!  'Love it! 

The book shelf holds family photos along with odds and ends. 

A very dear friend gave me all the tiny books! I was actually looking for something else when I stumbled across them! What a treasure! (And she gives me books!) ;-) 

The dresser makes me smile.  There's a small white rabbit in front of all those dogs.  I added "HOPE" above my beloved Wanda Roe art.  I hope the rabbit gets away!  ;-) 

The small statue belonged to my great aunt who lived to be 97.  Anything that reminds me of her is very special.

Here are some items that are going back in the closet...  maybe next time they will be used.  I kept tucking them here and there, but they just did not seem to fit this time.

Then a really cute "decorative pillow" joined the makeover! 

Ivan likes the new bedding, and he even matches!

Here is the final photo.  I love it!  I hope you do, too! 

OK.  Yeah, so, I hung my floral sweater on the dresser knob.  It just seemed to belong! 

Stop by whenever you can!  ;-)  -Marci


  1. Marci--I love your seasonal make-over of this room. The lattice/polka dot bedding is a wonderful find and the touches of red are wonderful. I don't do this sort of retouching in our guest room often enough--in the winter it is a bright blue and grey and white, and in the summer, I use yellow for the highlight color.

  2. Hi, Terri! 'So glad you stopped by! I love the color schemes you mentioned. Yellow is always a favorite! I like the orange trend that seems to be everywhere right now, too! -Marci

  3. This is a room that I would love to stay in! So pretty and I love the bedding with the red accents.

  4. I am so impress you seasonally make-over an entire room:)

  10. Hi, Holly! LOL! Ivan really knows how to steal the show! ;-) -Marci

  11. Very cool how you rotate your decor for the season. We have such a small house that if I put all of my decor out it seems so cluttered. Rotating it might be a good solution. Thanks for the inspiration!

  12. Hi, Krissy! I'm so glad you came by! It seems like I am always re arranging something! ;-) -Marci
