Our Summer Coastal Inspired Guest Room {Amy’s New House}

It is almost summer, the thought of that alone makes me SO happy. I spent some time this week in advance of the holiday weekend and all the fun that comes with this time of year picking up some new items to use throughout the summer when we need a guest room for our visitors.

We actually don’t have a dedicated guest room in our new house. I try to keep things flexible, this is actually normally my younger son’s room (see it HERE) and depending on who is visiting, I’ll move either him out of his room or my daughter out of hers to accommodate guests. It isn’t a problem, at their age half the time my kids are sleeping over at a friend’s house or will be at a camp, especially over summer, or our visitors also have kids so they all camp out in the basement. Worst case we have a couch in our loft (see it HERE) that a teenager can sleep on for a night or two. With my oldest heading to college in just one very short year, and our effort to have only space we use in this house, the plan not to add another bedroom solely for guests made sense for us and it has worked out just fine.
