Shiny + New

A Guest Bedroom Makeover


We recently worked with lifestyle blogger, Brittany Stager of My Daily Randomness. She redid her guest bedroom using key pieces from Urban Barn and custom built a few key pieces for the space. We go behind the scenes with her as she showcases her most recent bedroom makeover.

Whether you’re a home reno pro or just testing the DIY waters, a bedroom makeover can sometimes be a daunting task. But as the to-do list becomes shorter, and your room looks more put together, excitement takes over as you begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel. 


Tell us about your guest bedroom? What made you want to give it a makeover?
My guest bedroom was pretty bad… and slightly embarrassing. Considering all other rooms in my home are complete, the guest bedroom left a lot to be desired. It lacked a cohesive décor scheme, and quickly became a “catch-all” area for junk in my home. Mismatched end tables, shelving, candles, unfinished art; it all made its way into this bedroom. It was most definitely not homey or inviting.


We love the look of your new room! Why did you pick white as the base colour?
Let me start by saying picking white was a BIG deal for me, as much as I love neutral decor schemes, I couldn’t help but want to try something new. I was worried at first because white rooms can sometimes feel stark and cold, but the warm faux fur throw and the dark tones from the wood help create a more intimate feel, making the room cozy and inviting. 


What’s your favourite part of the room?
Hands down, the bedding. I travel a lot for work, and that is one thing I appreciate most when staying away from home; comfortable bedding. I want my guests to feel at ease and calm when they crawl into bed. I can’t recall how many times I’ve felt the strain of the day melt away after crawling into a luxurious bed outfitted with crisp, clean sheets and plush pillows. And this bed is no different. Super soft microfiber sheets and Urban Barn’s Chantelle Bedspread give the bed that “hotel crispness”, while faux fur pillows and a chevron cushion make it warm and inviting.
