Every Room In The House Party - #7

001
Americana Guest Room designed by Jann @ Have a Daily Cup of Mrs. Olson

Happy July Cottage Friends!

We're only a few days away from Independence Day celebrations.  Are you ready for fireworks, fun and food?  I sure am.  And isn't Jann's Americana Guest Room pictured above perfect for getting us in the star spangled mood?  I love it.  Do check out her post which was originally a touching Memorial Day tribute to her father.
Today begins a new Every Room In The House party.  July's theme is Party Outdoors.  This is a chance to show us your garden, outdoor living space, potting shed, etc.  Get ready to link up your posts covering any of your outdoor spaces
Before we move outdoors I want to share inspiration from last month's party in the Guest Room/Kidz Room.
The three most viewed posts
Terry at Forever Decorating revealed her updated guest room in My MacKenizie Childs Inspired Guest Room!   Terry's sewing skills and eye for color never ceases to amaze me.  I love everything about this beautiful room.
Cottage charm reigns at Design Dreams by Anne.  Her Guest Room Cottage Style Makeover is filled with beachy, shabby chic décor.  So perfect for summer.
Laurel at North End Loft came to the party with A New Neutral Guest Room.   I love her take on neutral shades in  this oh-so-pretty guest room.  Laurel says, "I've grown to love the subtlety of decorating with neutrals." 

More Guest Rooms

If vintage that doesn't get too serious is your style, you'll love Be My Guest at Have a Daily Cup of Mrs. Olson.  Jann's color palette came from the rag rug that anchors the room.  You'll love this cheerful, inviting guest room with all its charming vignettes.
 
Terry showed us her other guest room with her post Guest Bedroom Redo...Again!  Terry's passion for decorating shows not only in the name of her blog -- Forever Decorating -- but in the fabulous rooms she creates.  I just can't get enough of her unique accessories and wall décor.




Diane at Passionate for White gave us a peek into her very soft and serene Guest Bedroom.  Wonderful natural light in this room.  I'm thinking breakfast in bed here.  Can you picture a bed tray with vintage dishware and a posy tucked into a petite vase?  (sigh)




If you crave French inspired design,  Chateau Chic's Scoop on the Guest Room Makeover will satisfy.  Mary Alice has created a charming vintage French retreat for her guests.  Her window treatment is exquisite. 




Nothing says "enchanting" to me like tea cups, so when I saw Elizabeth's Teacup Guest Room at Home Is Where the Heart Is I instantly fell in love.  I can't imagine anything more delightful than waking up in this bedroom and seeing Elizabeth's beautiful display of teacups, not to mention her whimsical accessories. 



Kidz Bedrooms


What young lady wouldn't love this Pretty in Purple Teen Bedroom at  Exquisitely Unremarkable?  Kim and her daughter have paired their talents to create this stunning room.  It hints at sophistication while maintaining the teen spirit.


 

Kim also showed us how her tween daughter's room came to life in Evolution of a Bedroom.  This room is so sweet.  I like the way Kim takes us back to see the room when her daughter was a little girl, and from there takes us through the changes that have taken place since.


Furniture Redo



Marie at The Interior Frugalista took a wallflower pine side table and gave it debutante personality with her Pine Table Makeover.  With its drawers to stow away incidentals, this would make a perfect nightstand for a guest room.

Well, I'm definitely inspired by these beautiful rooms and furnishings.  How about you?

If you pin any of the features, please do so from the originator's blog post and not from this site.

    1. We're in the final stages, Lynne. I think. I could write a whole book on the challenges of having a home built in this economy. Hope to update everyone soon. Best wishes for a great 4th.

  10. Hi Nancy,
    Thank you! Oh my goodness I did not know you hand featured my guest room. I am just now reading and catching up on my correspondence. How very sweet of you!
    I have been so busy with taking care of my husband after his surgery I have not been able to spend a lot of time on my blog.
    I am smiling from ear to ear, thank you again.
    Have a sweet day, Elizabeth

  12. Nancy, it has been a busy month to say the very, very least. We have decided after much contemplation to bring my mom home from the nursing home she's been living in. To say that these few weeks have been overwhelming, would be a complete understatement. So, if I am extremely late to the party, you will excuse me, but I really wanted to share some sunshine and poke around the other gardens!! I have always found a walk in a flower filled garden to be very therapeutic...even if it's virtual! Thank you for adding a bright spot during a very difficult, yet satisfying, period! :)

    1. Kim, I'm so sorry your month has been overwhelming. I understand how it is with caring for aging parents. So much responsibility, and a deep desire to see them happy and healthy. Your mom and you are in my prayers. I appreciate the time you took out of your busy day to stop by, and to share your outdoor space with us. Gentle hugs ~ Nancy
