Do you guys remember when I was going through our house and decluttering at the beginning of Summer? I still have 2 rooms to go and I hope to get to them soon. I did finish all the bedrooms and I’m making sure one of our spare bedrooms is ready for guests. I removed all excess furniture from the bedroom and cleaned out the closet and the dresser drawers. Then I added a few details to make our guest comfy!
This was our son’s room when he was growing up. Needless to say it didn’t look like this when he occupied the room. The paint color is the same…he picked the color and painted the room….good boy. Everything else has been changed.
To get the room guest ready I added fresh flowers. I love flowers. They make me smile.
There is nothing like adding a candle for atmosphere. I found the candle at Walmart. They carry the new American Home™ by Yankee Candles® brand. The tumbler style candle is very modern looking and I love the fragrance of the Pumpkin Apple Harvest. It smells like home….when someone is cooking an apple pie.
You guys know I have a large quilt collection. This is one the hubby bought at an auction and it’s one of my favorites. He did a good job. I keep a quilt on the bed and several in the closet for guest use.
Every bedroom needs an alarm clock and a bedside lamp. I also keep a fresh bottle of water, coasters, and tissues handy for our guests.
One of the bedroom walls is bare of furniture. Yea! I’m finding less is more. What about you guys? The wall does have a full length mirror which comes in handy for making sure you look presentable in the morning. The hubby and I have a full length mirror in our bedroom also.
I keep a supply of magazines and sometimes a novel or two on the trunk which serves as a bedside table. I couldn’t resist lighting the candle while taking photos. It didn’t take long for the whole house to smell yummy!
Always shop your home when redecorating a room or just adding a few additional touches. Everything in the room with the exception of the fresh flowers and the candle are things I always have on hand. The flowers were $4.97 and the candle was $10.93.
Walmart carries the exclusive American Home™ by Yankee Candles® brand. I shop at my local Walmart several times a week! Makes it really easy for me to pick them up when I’m grocery shopping! The candles are in the home décor, fragrance section at my local store.
Who can stop at one candle? This fragrance is Sunny Sands. It reminds me of the beach. The candle looks great on the bathroom counter. The display includes a white painted tray with seashells I picked up on the beach. LOVE.
Do you have a guest bedroom? What do you think of our ” warm and inviting guest room “? Which room in your home could use an American Home™ candle?
Leave me a note. I love hearing from you. Until tomorrow.
