HOW TO CREATE A COZY BEDROOM

Is it time to convert your grown up child’s old bedroom into that cozy guest room you’ve always dreamed about?  Or maybe you’ve just never gotten around to cleaning out that extra room and doing something special with it.  Now you’ve got company coming and you’d really like a nice place in the house for them to land besides your child’s bedroom with all it’s baby dolls, Barbie dolls or Star Wars characters staring them down.  So it’s time….

The bedding is from one of my favorite trade only bedding vendors called Siscovers. A great source for semi-custom/custommade bedding.  I wanted “simple and understated” with a subtle combination of the blues and creams.
