Home Decor Ideas by Jerina Mac

Guest Bedroom Ideas

When I’m not shooting a wedding or families,  I’m decorating my home.  I can’t afford to hire a professional so the only way I can get what I want is to do it myself.  First and foremost, for this to be successful, you have to have a true passion for it.  Hopefully, this guestroom will be an inspiration to you or at least an encouragement to get started.

b1Just to let you know, I always start shopping at the least expensive store and then work my way up.  I find all of my decorations at the following places:  Ross,  HomeGoods, Kirkland’s,  Target, Hobby Lobby, TJmaxx, Marshall’s and Steinmart.b2I looked everywhere for bedding and couldn’t find anything that I fell in love with so I ordered this particular one from Soft Surroundings online.  The bedskirt was one I already had (Steinmart)b4I love using the “unexpected” on my walls.  I screwed in a small picture hanger on the back and randomly placed them on the floor first.  Once I got it the way I liked it, I hung it!  LOVE TEXTURESb5Most of the walls in my home are “white-white” (flat) so that I can add a pop of color and change my decor.  This is much easier than repainting every time I change my color scheme.b6It’s very rare that I like the knobs that come with my furniture so I make a trip to Hobby Lobby on the week they have their knobs for 50% off and save a ton.  It really personalizes the furniture with the decor.

b9Over the past 13 years, I bet I’ve painted this armoire 6 different colors.  I store a small tv with movies for the grandchildren to watch their favorite movies when they visit us.  b10Every green plant you’ll see me use is artificial;  as long as it looks real.  (I am the worst at keeping real plants alive) I use lanterns for everything but candles.  Here, I’ve got my collection of seashells displayed.b14Again, artificial greenery and more seashells displayed on a cake platter.  Underneath, I used two very old books that belonged to our family decades ago.b16This bedroom is so big I had enough room to add a small sofa for my guests to relax on or just sit their “stuff” on during their visit. (This use to be in my photography studio but I didn’t want to get rid of it.)  Before getting rid of something, see if it can be used in another room for a different function and don’t be afraid to change the paint colors.  These end tables and the legs on this sofa use to be silver.  Now that I’m using a touch of brass in my house, I spray painted the tables and hand painted the legs.
