Show Us Where You Live Friday - Guest Room




In order to keep things on the lighter side today, since I have a heavy heart about some other matters, I thought I would join this meme. It helped that I already had a few photos stored in my computer, too! :-)

Kelly at Kelly's Korner Blog has a weekly meme in which she gives a tour of one part of her home. This week it's the guest room.  To join her, go here.



This is our guest room a.k.a. scrapbooking room which our daughters also like to have "sleepovers" in.  That armoire is full of scrapbooks. I don't have as much time to work on the thousands of photos we have taken since we moved to England, let alone the thousands we've taken before said move. I have been successful in doing a total of about 30 pages or so in the last year. That's not major progress... but it is progress. 



This is a trundle bed that we pull out and it pops up, making it a queen-size bed. Notice there aren't any pictures on the wall. In our rental agreement they asked that we not do that. Makes it a little boring, but I love this room anyway.

We have had a couple of sets of friends that traveled across the pond to visit and have stayed in this room. 

My in-laws and my niece, Chyenne, and her husband, Zach, as well as my niece, Natalie, are coming to visit in July. We'll have to figure out some new arrangements to accommodate everyone, but we are really excited about their upcoming visit.


I love the sage green and pale yellow in this room. Hope you enjoyed the tour and my heart is a little lighter after sharing.

I love the colors of this room ... it looks like it belongs in a sweet little cottage. Cool daybed that pops into a trundle queen bed? Awesome!

That is a gorgeous room, you have used color well to make up for not being able to put things on the walls.
