Well my loves, it's been busy around here, but our roommate has moved out and now J & I have what I never dreamed possible in a New York apartment: a guest room. A real, actual, grown-up guest room!
We've cleaned it up but before a guest can come and stay, we've got to decorate. I'm aiming for a bright and cheery and cozy look: we've started with these organic cotton sheets with a light gray polka dot pattern and this beautiful (and durable, and eco-friendly) rug from hook & loom. And all our overflow books that were getting stacked in heaps on the living room bookshelf (and on my nightstand, and the floor, and over J's desk . . . ) now have a new home in the guest room.
So now that we have the bare bones in place, it's time to pretty it up and get some art on those walls. I love Paul Ferney's work, especially his Let Them Eat Cake series (the orangesicle and le fleur prints in particular - they evoke that warm, happy feeling I'm going for with this room), and I hardcore covet Gray Malin's photography (all of it, but I think the New York series would be so perfect for our guest room, if not necessarily our budget). (I also very much want this print for my office).
