carrie bradshaw lied home

After many months of working on our guest bedroom, I’m excited to finally share the completed room with y’all! This room was an empty “storage” kind of room for a year. We wanted to keep it empty enough that an air mattress would fit when we have guests, but knew ultimately we wanted it to be more of a work space, knowing we would get the most use out of an office.

SO rather than fill it with a bed (sorry to our guests – but we do really love you guys!), we chose to create another living room type of space that can still be moved around for an air mattress.  When guests come, we simply move the trunk into the closet and voila!

On one side of the room is Christian’s desk (more on that here), the middle hosts our old sofa (you can see our main living room upgrade here) and the opposite side of the room from Christian’s desk is some shelving that hosts more of my shoes… which is basically my continuing memo to Christian that this room is not intended to be his man cave (but I love you buddy).  Personally, when we added this hide rug was when everything really came together.  I’ve always wanted a zebra hide and I am in love with this one from SummerHouse!

You can scroll to the bottom of the post to see where everything is from!  Visit this post for a house tour of the rest of our home (before this spare room was completed!).

  1. I love that you’ve made it a space that works for you, and then you can switch it up when guests arrive. I feel like so many times a guest room just stays unused until guests arrive! (Swooning over your shoes!)

    1. Thank you Alyssa! That was exactly what we were going for. We just don’t have guests often enough to have a bed take up the whole room, but this little space we actually use every day!
