Guest bedroom/study

Friends, readers, design-y lovers! I am so happy to be able to give you a real before and after today. Mom and I worked all weekend to get the condo in working order, and I am absolutely in love with how it's coming together. Guest room/study, meet ladychirpsalot. Ladychirpsalot-- guest room/study.

As a refresher, here is a before shot of the guest room:




And official afters! The blue walls photograph more grey, but they are definitely light blue with a tiny touch of green in real life.

Looking in from the hall.
Our guest bedroom in Hyde Park and before in our apartment was just a mattress on the ground. Quote from Joseph: "No one will take us seriously until we have box springs." Problem solved (still no box springs, but the frame acts as them)!

Pan to the right.

Another view.

Mmmmm. bookz.

My favorite area is the study corner. I needed a place that made me really want to sit down and work, and this is definitely it. Plus Joseph and I never had our diplomas up, so it was exciting to get to finally hang them!

That lamp used to be dark brown. All hail spray paint! I will be getting a white cord cover today, too.

My other favorite part of the room is this amazing French anatomy poster I found by accident. I had bought a gorgeous old Virgen painting from an antiques fair, and lo and behold this gem was hiding behind it in the frame! It may be the coolest thing I own (and quite apt in the study, no?).

So there you have it! Come visit and inaugurate the room! Also, stay tuned for our master bedroom!
