  1. Thanks so much for sharing this! I need a small space to pay bills, but don’t want to give up a guest room. This is the perfect solution. I can even put a small file cabinet in the closet.

    1. The pictures for the links aren’t loading only a search circle acting like it’s trying to load. I wonder if anyone else is having trouble.

      1. Thank you for the heads up. I actually have had several people tell me this in the past few days. It’s probably a caching problem but I have my tech person looking into it right now. You can try refreshing the page, but I’ll see if there’s anything I can do at my end to make it easier. Thanks for your patience!!

  2. It’s a lovely room. Do you remember the brand and name of the blue paint color?

  3. Already saw my question answered on the blue paint color! Your room is so soft and serene. Just beautiful!

    Where did you find your mini-sofa?

  5. Wow, I just love that blue on the walls! And all the decor looks amazingly before it, you’ve done a nice job.

    I am very interested in your process of downsizing. Do you have specific posts that address this? We are considering, but in this heated real estate market, we know we could sell quickly; it’s finding our next home that is a concern! Did you make a lateral move from your last home, or did you have a temporary home while you looked. I would love some ideas to make this transition less stressful! Always enjoy your posts. Thank you.

    Lovely space to work or visit! I have this dilemma in my bedrooms and guest room: what do you do with all the pillows at night? In this case there is the love seat, but if the room is too small for one?? I don’t like putting them on the floor. I had a small wicker trunk for one room, but it couldn’t hold them all 🙄

    1. While I do have a bench at the foot of my bed, I never put the pillow shams there. I always put them neatly on the floor, standing upright, to the side of the nightstand. Our bedroom floors are carpeted, so it doesn’t bother me to place them there.

  8. One wall of my guest room has a Wallbed with a bookcase/drawers combo on either side and a lateral file cabinet under a small window. The window wall has a chair and a bookcase. The third wall has my desk, a bookcase, and a repurposed hutch (full of books and office supplies), and another lateral file cabilet with a TV. fourth wall has the door and a closet with a short hanging area and mostly shelving for binders and file boxes. .It is easy to take my laptop away, pull down the bed and be ready for a guest A wallbed is the perfect solution for a double-purpose room.

  9. HimLori, I love following your posts and this bedroom is dreamy. Would you tell me where you got the comforter/duvet? I love the soft colors.

  10. Hi
    Thank you for sharing all these beauty. I looked through Amazon and other sites you recommended, but sadly I did not the dining room chandelier or the host chair. Also for the office I could not see the bed. Please advise whereI should look for it.🙏.

    1. Would love to help but I’m a bit confused. You’re asking about a dining room chandelier but you’re on a post about an office/guest room.

      My dining room chandelier is an antique, so it’s one of a kind, but I do have a similar one linked on my dining room post. You can see that chandelier here: https://rstyle.me/+AYPc485s-thlCh9GE_Knng

      Also, what do you mean by host chair? If that’s the dining chairs, you can find those here – Chair: https://rstyle.me/+GnX6isunM5vMmH85c2LnUg Slipcover: https://rstyle.me/+sL_x4auJN9GhRRICozLDxg

      Or if you mean the armchairs at the ends of the table, those too, are antique, and these are very similar: https://rstyle.me/+8PpNkRv2on-_TXqO8DCkRA

      Finally, what do you mean you can’t see the bed? There are clear pictures of the bed in the post – both the first and last pictures show the bed. If you mean in the shopping guide, I’ve linked this very similar bed: https://rstyle.me/+MfiBMX865zoxFfqb8K45cw

      I hope that helps!

  11. They were all great ideas. We live in a small 2 bedroom home and to give more space to the other bedroom we had a Murphy bed installed. It really makes the room more useable and when needed we pull the bed down and put on the bedding at that time.

  12. Love this layout Lory! We are in the process of downsizing and will probably have a lower level for when our kids who live out of state visit.
    A townhome we are looking at has an office and master on the main level. The office would gave to be a shared space. Your solution has given me some great ideas. That bedding is sold out. I can wait … so surprised it was from Target.
