Guest Room Art

I finally got around to putting up some artwork in the guest room!  You remember the state of decor after we painted:



The yellow walls were a bit blank and I had to do something about it!  As promised, we are going with a botanical theme in here, so firstly I lifted a butterfly picture from the laundry room (poor laundry room… I just keep stealing things from in there.)


Then, I stumbled upon an awesome metal butterfly wall hanging in the floral department at our local fabric store!  LOVE!


It fit perfectly on the wall next to the closet.  With the butterfly across the way, it was right at home:


The last project was for the wall over the bed… the wall you see first when you enter the room.  I bought three matching frames at Goodwill and painted them black.  Then I printed three yellow flowers from New York Public Library’s Digital Gallery and stuck them in the mats.  Voila! Instant botanical collage.


And for the low cost of $0, if I decide I don’t like them in a month, I can print something else and put in the frames.


The room is coming along, now if we could just get that upholstered headboard up, this wall would be complete!


What do you think?  Do you like the pops of black and green?  I’m thinking we need a green botanical inspired pillow on the bed as an accent to tie in with the art.

Stay tuned: pillows, bedskirt, cushion, and headboard are yet to come!
