atlanta home tour: guest room

{this post has been updated - see here!} in many ways, this massive guest room (it's even larger than our master) was contingent upon our headboard. when we moved from our one bedroom to a three bedroom, we obviously had a lengthy list of items to buy. one item that I did not think we needed to buy was a guest room headboard. I was really excited to use a traditional wooden one that stephen had as a child. unfortunately, let's just say that due to some missing parts, the final look was definitely better in my head than it was in reality. about two months after we moved in, we stumbled upon this gorgeous gray upholstered headboard and were sold.

I love this west elm duvet and before our move, I had tied it together with gray euro shams, accents of yellow, and a black upholstered headboard. with our new gray headboard, I no longer liked our gray on gray look... and so went the search for a pillow refresh. I've become increasingly efficient during work lunch breaks lately, making it to up three different places in the span of an hour. in fact, our summer intern made fun of me because every time he asked what I was doing for lunch - my answer was "running errands." #homeownership, am I right?

I had to include this one... she is always finding her way into my blog shots.

 I am in love with my new neutral color scheme, this rich tan totally gets me. not to mention, I'm obsessed with the pom poms on the shams. they remind me of the most adorable pillows from our vacation rental in charleston.

they say you're never really done decorating your home, and I am starting to understand. everything is 99% perfect, it's that final 1% that's making me crazy in endless pursuit.
