Before & After: Clifford Guest Bedroom & Bath

These guys are two of my favorite rooms in the whole house and they didn’t even make the cut for Rue! Which is understandable because they are teensy tiny and hard to photograph but I am glad they are getting their time to shine now!

So again, 2nd floor before. The bedroom I am showing you today is located in that back corner, where the kitchen used to be.

Immediately adjacent to it is what will soon be our nursery…

I just love this happy little nugget room. The curtains are reused from the dining room at my college house in Austin. The painting above the bed is that Paule Marrott number I had been dreaming of for months. A 25th birthday present! The dresser is refinished vintage and I love it.

But you know what I love even more? The adorable bathroom that this room will share with our nursery-to-be. I have affectionately been referring to this as “The Kids Bath” since we began construction. Which is a lot less creepy now that we actually are expecting.

So happy, methinks.

I can’t wait to give our little snuggly lady baby baths in here!

    I love the floral chair in the guest bedroom. It’s so sweet … I want it! And the bathroom feels so fresh and fun. Love it.

    I love this bathroom! Where did you get those sconces?

  9. Kristin April 1, 2011 at 10:23 am

    That is going to be one lucky little lady! The wallpaper, tile, marine light combo is amazing! Want to adopt me? 🙂

    Bailey – you are SO talented!! I love it all. I’ve been wanting to write you an email about living in Chi-town. We might move there in about two years and I’m wanting some advice. Think about it and I’ll email you soon. Not that you need yet another email in your inbox. I’m sure it’s been especially flooded lately.

    I just tweeted you about your tile source.

  12. Rachel April 1, 2011 at 10:52 am

    I thought I was in love with the vintage armoire, but I realized it was only a crush when I saw the sailboat wallpaper–and discovered what true love really is.

    Will you please design my home for me as soon as I graduate law school and get a home/salary?

  13. Beth April 1, 2011 at 11:11 am

    Bailey where is that wall paper and tile from it’s absolutely fantastic!!!

  14. geri April 1, 2011 at 11:33 am

    love, love, love everything you touch. you need to have a coffeetable book published so we can all get a daily dose of your yummy taste in interiors! loved the rue spread and have been salivating over the wall papers you used. would you mind sharing where you got them? specifically the powder room dog silouette paper, the dining budgie paper and the master bath paper! thanks so much for your time… geri xxxx

    Baily those curtains are gorgeous and perfect with the green paint. I can’t believe you held onto those for years to use in your new house. I also can’t believe you put up something so nice in a college house. Well, yes I can.

    That “kids” bathroom is nothing short of amazing!! You did a phenomenal job with every inch of your home

    Bailey – that tile in the bathroom is genius. Seriously gorgeous bedroom and bath.. love it!!

  18. Koren April 1, 2011 at 4:41 pm

    I am dying over that bathroom. SOOO cute! I LOVE the shower curtain design. Can you share a little about the design – is it cream linen with fabric tape? Did your upholsterer execute the design?

  19. Lisa April 2, 2011 at 12:38 pm

    Bailey…you have done an amazing job! Just showed post to my 11 yr old daughter and she loves the day bed in the guest room. Can you share with us where it came from. She wants a bed just like that! Thanks.

    I’m obsessed with Katie Ridder papers- looove your bathroom- love your whole house actually!!

  21. Dabay April 3, 2011 at 5:09 pm

    To imagine the enormous amount of time & effort you put into your house is mind-blowing! Such an incredibly labor of love and it’s safe to say your hard work paid off. I love how you’re not afraid to implement color and have a sense of humor about things; not all straight-laced and stuffy like some. Thank you for sharing!


  22. Lauren April 3, 2011 at 10:37 pm

    Bailey, everything you do is charming and wonderful-your an amazing writer with such a great, sunshine-y sense of humor that brings me joy daily! Just to add to the questions-the fringed linens in the guest bath, where can I get me some of those??

  23. Emily April 4, 2011 at 12:15 pm

    The yellow tile in your bathroom is FABULOUS!

  24. Susan May 13, 2011 at 12:27 am

    Everything is gorgeous. I really love the shower curtain – how is it hung? Is that a wooden board in front of the curtain, or a piece of drywall? Is it upholstered or painted? Is the curtain rod sandwiched between another board on the inside of the shower, or exposed? Thanks!

    I love all that you have done and fine myself coveting your repurposed curtains! Could you share the fabric info or where you got them? I’m expecting our second baby girl in April and love the turquoise and lime combination! Thanks!
