A Sneak Peek into our Guest Bedroom

150 150 Angela Lanter

There’s only one room almost finished in our house so far and it’s my beauty room.  I’m filming a beauty room/studio reveal next week, so stay tuned because you’re going to DIE over the organization and decor!  In case you missed it, here is my beauty room/studio tour from our old house.  I kept my Ikea cabinets and desk, but with the addition of the Pax system (I’ve shown sneak peeks on Instagram Stories) we’ll probably be repurposing the tall Alex drawers.

Today I wanted to show a sneak peek of our main guest bedroom.  This room was on the top of my list to finish when we moved in.  We unfortunately haven’t spent much time at all in our new home since we had to move to Atlanta right away.  When we got home, I found out I was pregnant and the sickness began so I didn’t have the energy to work much on our house decor.  Now that I’m feeling better, I’m starting to put the house together.  Today I’m going to show you a couple photos from our guest bedroom.  I’ll do a full reveal of the room once we get the bedding and artwork purchased and in place.

Many of you will remember the nightstands that we had in the guest room at our old house (see this blog post).  I wanted to buy new nightstands to go with the new Pottery Barn upholstered headboard we bought.  Matt asked if I could give him a chance to paint or stain or old Crate & Barrel nightstands first, so I thought why not?  He did such an amazing job with our coffee table so I knew he’d come up with something beautiful for our nightstands.  Here is the finished product:

I love the way that they turned out!  We still need to replace the drawer pulls, and I’m leaning towards some I recently saw at Anthropologie.

Next up is my console table.  We have a big blank wall in the guest room that separates the bathroom and the closet.  I saw this photo on Pinterest and thought that table would be exactly what I need to go with my pair of Restoration Hardware Toscane stools.  I already had a large blue canvas painting on the wall, the only thing missing was a table.  My problem was I couldn’t find this table or one similar anywhere.  I took to Etsy and stumbled across the custom furniture store, Old Pine, and I fell in love with their work.  Old Pine makes the most gorgeous pieces from reclaimed wood and I knew that they would be able to make a table for my guest room that would be absolutely perfect for the space!  I sent the Old Pine team this inspiration photo and they went straight to work.  They drew up a sample of the table they would build and kept in communication with me throughout the entire process.  I was blown away when we saw the finished piece.  It was so gorgeous and it fit the space perfectly!  Here’s a photo of the Old Pine table:

The stools fit perfectly under the table!  The table is distressed white and the quality is incredible.  Please check out Old Pine if you are in the market for any custom furniture pieces or if you’re looking for a reclaimed wood piece for your home.

I just purchased the most gorgeous bedding for this bedroom while vacationing in 30A last week.  I can’t wait to get the bedding all together to show y’all.  I’m an all-white bed girl, but I wanted to bring a fresh color into this room.  I’m so excited about what the finished product will look like!

If you’re eyeing the Restoration Hardware Toscane stools, but don’t like their $395 price tag ($296 for members), then I’ve done a little detective work for you.  Overstock makes this stool, which is available for $276.  Personally, I’d rather have the RH version, as I think the Overstock version doesn’t look like it’s as nice of quality.  Wayfair makes a lookalike stool that comes in multiple colors and is reviewed very well by customers.  The Wayfair Weybossett Ottoman is only $178 and looks very similar to the Toscane, with the exception of the attached cushion on top.  I think this is a great budget-friendly option.

Amazon Prime Day Sales Angela Lanter


iRobot Roomba Vacuum:  I first learned about these magic little robotic housekeepers when my Mawmaw got one years ago.  We now own two of them and I’m obsessed.  The one word of warning, if you have white walls or white trim, the robot will hit them and leave behind marks.  Matt remedied that by adding some foam on the outside of the robot so when it hits the walls there’s no evidence left.  You’ll save $125 today!

Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker:  We purchased this speaker two summers ago in Alabama and we still use it on basically an every day basis.  The sound output is incredible and the bass is deep.  We use it around the pool or I carry it around the house while I’m doing work, listening to music or podcasts.  You’ll save $70 today!

Clarisonic Mia 2 Facial Cleansing Brush:  I’ve been a Clarisonic user for years.  In fact, I purchased my Mia 2 while we were living in New Orleans 4 years ago…  And that baby is still going strong!  If you want to see how I use my brush in my everyday skincare routine, check out my Get Unready With Me video.  Today you’ll save $59!

Makeup Eraser:  Another product I use on the regular and I talked about in my Unready with Me video is my Makeup Eraser.  I love it so much that I bought one for both my mom and my mother-in-law!

Calvin Klein Undies:  My favorite underwear hands-down are my CKs.  I’ve become so spoiled by them that it’s one of the only brands of undies I’ll now buy.  I talked all about them in my underwear blog post.  The problem is…  They’re not cheap.  Today these undies are 30% off at checkout!

Hello Home: Patio Furniture Edit

150 150 Angela Lanter

The home decorating is still underway!  It’s just taking a loooong time.  We’ve been focusing on our outdoor space since summer is here.  Matt & I do a lot of entertaining, so our outdoor space is almost as important as our kitchen and family room.  I’m trying not to rush any decision and I’m just taking my time choosing each piece.  I’d rather go without a certain piece for a while than throw away money buying something I don’t 100% love.  My dear friend, Lo, told me it takes a full year to get your house the way you want it…  I think she’s right!

Summerton Teak Loverseat with Cushions  //  Indoor/Outdoor Rug  //  Calistoga Dining Table (sold out); similar here  //  Indigo Dining Bench  //  Del Mar Bistro Chairs (Set of 2)  //  Wood Glass Lantern  //  Fire Pit  //  Chaise Lounge Chair

I wanted to share with you the pieces I’ve chosen so far for our outdoor area.  If you’re familiar with LA, then you know that yard space is hard to come by.  We do have a small patch of grass next to our pool, but not a whole lot of space in general to work with.  I wanted to choose pieces that are the most usable and small space friendly.  We have a concrete patio that extends from our house that measures just about 6′, which is the primary area that I’m working with.

Dining Space:

For the dining space, we needed something that sat as many people as possible while still fitting on the concrete patio.  We chose this concrete topped dining table from Pottery Barn and paired it with a bench.  I love bench seating for small spaces because when the table isn’t being used, you can tuck the bench under the table.  I have always wanted bistro chairs since I first saw them in Paris 5 years ago, so I knew I had to work them into our new home in some way.  I chose these chairs from Wayfair and they are awesome quality.  They stack nicely away for storage and they’re so cute in person.

Pool Area:

We went through several sets of chaise lounges at our other house so we knew that we wanted to invest in better quality chairs this time around.  We chose these chaise lounges from Pottery Barn…  And they still haven’t arrived.  We ordered them on 4/21 and the cushions arrived almost immediately, but the chairs keep getting pushed further and further out for delivery.

Fire Pit Area:

We moved our fire pit from our other house and it remains one of our most used pieces of furniture.  It’s four years old now, but this one I linked is a smaller, similar design.  Our fire pit is from Restoration Hardware and is connected to our gas line.  We set it on this neutral outdoor rug from Pottery Barn, which I love.  We bought two teak loveseats for either side of the fire pit (which is rectangle shaped) and hung our tv on the outdoor wall.  We had a heck of a time finding sofas to fit our patio because they could only be a max of 60″ wide.  Because we wanted the sofas to be positioned around the fire pit, that restricted our size even more which meant a sectional was out of the question.  I really wanted Restoration Hardware sofas, but didn’t love any of their pieces that fit within our size guidelines.
