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.

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)!

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!
