becoming a home....
This is my guest room
I want to make it into a "guest suite"
I do not know why. We've been living together for almost three years and so far we've had two people stay the night at the old house (that ended up falling asleep in the floor watching movies) and one stay the night here (and hes young and was just happy to spend the night away from home).
But maybe it is because we never had a guest suite to sweeten the deal.
I can see it now.......
*computer screen goes hazy and clears up to two people sitting at their kitchen table enjoying morning coffee and planning their holiday visiting*
"you know honey we should really go visit all our family in St Clair county."
"i do miss them so, but with gas so high we cant afford to drive all the way there and then stay in a hotel and eat out at expensive restaurants just to be near family"
"well i heard that deLa and bradley just finished their guest suite. you know they love to cook so we wouldn't go hungry"
"oh honey that is an excellent idea! i love you! let's never stay in a hotel again!!!!"
*back to reality*
SEE! This is what I'm missing out on with my messy guest room. No house guests!
I know what I want to do.... it is just putting it into action. The bedding is taken care of, it will be our old bedding ensemble:
So that is taken care of. Then I want a little reading area with a comfy chair and a small table and lamp. That will be in front of the window. I also want a bookshelf to put a tv/dvd player and house lots of DVDs and books if the guests need some time to themselves.
I also want one of those things in hotels that you set your suitcase on.
But I have one problem...... the room needs to be painted. I want it to be a color that is VERY calming and soothing. Something that will make them feel at home.
What color makes you feel comfortable and relaxed?? Please tell me!
Our bedroom is painted a grayish brownish blueish color. It was supposed to be chocolate milk color. I already know it goes with the bedding, should I just use that?
What amenities would you want to have while you were away from home? Anything else I need to add to my guest suite?
I need to know what you think, and you need to tell me.... because, who knows... YOU may be my first house guest!
