So we've all seen my newest guest room makeover but what you haven't seen is my very first guest room makeover. When I first moved into John's bachelor pad back in '04, I was as green as they come interior-design wise. It was like someone got me all hopped up on classic coke and a high credit limit and set me loose inside Pier One. I needed to have a Moroccan-themed room and ohhhhh did I get one. I think John may have actually choked when I cracked open the paint can to reveal this...
The magic bubbles weren't really real and I have no idea how the photo turned out that way.
And he may have had a slight heart attack when I explained how I wanted to drape the extra long Ikea sheer curtains across the ceiling. But he let me run wild. If there was a Moroccan lantern within a 25 mile radius to be had, I had it. And for all it's theme-y-ness, I loved the crap out of that room. And I know my guests did too. Ya know why? Mostly because the blue walls kept the room cool and dark and somehow, back in those days, most of my guests were hungover. A cool and dark room to the hungover is almost as good as the fountain Coke and greasy cheeseburger the next day.
Anyway, when we decided to move to a new house, the end of the Moroccan room was inevitable. We knew it was going to have to be painted. The dreaded neutral. So the walls became cream and Morocco got all boxed up. And we moved. So while it might be a far stretch from my taste in interiors now, it'll always be my first makeover and ohhh was it a good one.
