When a close friend asks you to help re-do their bubble-gum pink, non-descript guest room, you can’t say no. You almost feel like you need to stage a design intervention immediately. Everyone has a room like this one: a forgotten catch-all guest room/play room/ exercise room/ office. We decided that it was our duty to save the world (and Connie and Mark’s parents!) from this room so we spruced the place up a bit. I mean, anything would have been better than that color pink, and we were game for the challenge.. So.without further ado, here’s our first official SuperFab Room Redesign!

Yay! Doesn’t it look incredible? Over the next few days we’ll be posting the tutorials on everything you see in the rooms, but for now, let’s take a look at some beauty shots, huh? Obviously, the scene-stealer is the multi-colored houndstooth stenciled wall. This was a definite labor of love (we even called in some backup assistance), but it makes a huge impact in the room, don’t you think? We love the mix of the classic houndstooth pattern with the modern color scheme. It definitely set the tone for the rest of the room: mixing old with new. We’ll be posting a tutorial next week, but if you want to get a jump start on your own, you can visit Royal Design Studio to get this amazing stencil for yourself!
Just take it all in, people. Another fav is the headboard we made out of old shutters (or are they doors? Not sure!) we found at our favorite salvage place, Architectural Antiques. We needed something that would stand out from the wall, command attention, and add some character and and this baby does that. Gorgeous!
This little vignette makes us super happy, because not only is it adorable, but it’s totally functional, as well. Since this is their guest room, we made sure to add some towels and an extra blanket to the cart to make their guests feel at home. An $8 industrial cart never looked so good! The metal cubby shelf was a great find from HomeGoods that completes this corner of the room.
We’re already planning a sleepover at Connie and Mark’s. 😉 We hope you enjoyed our makeover! Be sure to stop back over to see all the juicy DIY details in the next few days.
