Dress Up The Season: Before & After Bedroom Makeover

main bedroom makover

After our house renovation this past summer some of our old rooms got put on the back burner. One major room that got neglected and used for storage more than an actual room was Mark’s old office which is now a guest room (cough…junk collector). It needed a little TLC. I’ve already been a big fan of Target’s home decorating line, Threshold, so when I got the opportunity to makeover one of my rooms I jumped at the chance. This change has been a long time coming.

We painted the room blue a couple of years ago and had no desire to repaint it when it became our guest room. The color is a muted blue and most colors go well with it so it was a good palette to start with. I’ve always loved blues and reds together so I aimed for that color combination. I found the perfect hue of red-coral in a duvet cover and pillow case set and a few throw pillows to tie it all in. Then for good measure I added a mirror to hang above the bed frame (also to hide that sad hole in the wall). The headboard was a project I did a few weeks ago. I will be sharing it in a DIY post in the next coming weeks.

Target Threshold Makeover - before

Our guestroom BEFORE the makeover. It was a little boring and uninspired. It needed some help.

Target Threshold Makeover - after

And here’s the guest room AFTER the makeover. I love the bright colors and how it exudes the feeling of Spring. The throw pillows tie in the duvet comforter beautifully.

Now I just need some house guests! (Pegah, Lauren, Joy, Kelsey…I’m talking to you!)

I love this sweet little ceramic bird as an accent on the nightstand.

I love our new guest bedroom look – it’s bright and inviting and perfect for Spring.

This inspires me to makeover some other rooms in our house.

This can turn into trouble…fast.

    Wow, this looks so cute and inviting! I love the red in the bedding mixed with the cream in the headboard and the blue on the walls. Great job on the room renovation!

    I love that blue and red together! The bird cage might be my favorite part of the whole room!
