Today, I'm going to show you the smallest upstairs bedroom, which we have dubbed "the Little Cherubs Room." In the online real estate listing, it was shown as a nursery.
We decided to paint this room with the same light gray ("Lunar Surface") shade we used in the Norman Rockwell Room. And I decorated the walls with ceramic angels, gifts from my late mother-in-law that I'd used as part of my home décor for many years--items that I love, but knew I wouldn't miss too much. (In my "real" home, I'm trying to reclaim wall space to make room for portraits of my earthly angels: my grandchildren!) I also hung several pieces of artwork portraying cherubic little children, including a favorite of mine titled "Taps," by Besse Pease Gutmann. It used to hang in my living room, but it seems to be right at home here in this Oyster Haven guest room.
Again, we went with a minimalist approach for the furnishings: new metal platform beds (a full and a twin) and new mattresses, and pristine all-white bedding with pops of color. Since the room is so small, I kept the window treatments very simple. The previous owners left the shades and curtain rods, and I found a pair of sheer white valances at Walmart, for next to nothing. The bedside tables were secondhand furniture store bargains.
Okay, then. Enough chit-chat. Without further ado, here are the after pictures.
Then the icing on the cake is the sign on the door that tells you you're about to enter this heavenly little space.
Now if only vacation-goers find it (and the rest of the house) as charming as I do...
To be continued! There's plenty more to show you.
