With the holidays around the corner, it was a race to get finished with my World Market guest house makeover! It couldn’t have turned out more stunning and beautiful thanks to their must-have furniture collection. I shared a sneak peek of some of my favorite pieces on my site this week. From the chic telescope lamps to the dreamy pom pom bedding – all the way down to the white and gold detailing of the frames, this guest house has never looked more inviting. The best part is the affordability of these products, so this can absolutely be pulled off on a budget.
Our space is just big enough for a couple of people to stay and be comfortable, with a bedroom and living area, a small kitchenette and a bathroom. Before I decided to create this living space, it was an office and basically extra storage for us. And now I might just move in there and leave my husband and kids in the main house. Ha! Not even kidding.

Let’s talk about the bedroom and living space. I decided to go with my usual neutral color palette: whites, grays and golds. This time around I threw in a splash of black to complement the black window panes. I just love high contrast, don’t you?
Of course when I spotted those black Axton desks with marble tops I knew they would be perfect as bedside tables.
Rather than just simply having a bedside table next to the bed, why not think outside the box with a desk and stool. Keeping it simple with fresh flowers and a few frames cozies everything up without getting too busy or messy.
Oh and the lamp just ties everything in, doesn’t it?
It really is all in the details too, so be sure and chop those pillows!
In this same space off to the side and under the window, you’ll find the prettiest driftwood desk you ever did see and the most beautiful chair with desk accessories so that my guests can have a comfortable place to read or work if need be.
I was even able to fit in an entire living space complete with a couch, coffee table and a side table too! I couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out. I mean. I just LOVE IT!
It really is all in the details and using the space that you have. That’s why I added tables here and there, plus that two-tone Johan dining bench.
The kitchenette and bathroom are smaller corners of the guest house, but I was easily able to make it work with fun bathroom decor, like the cute bath mat and polka dot shower curtain. And don’t underestimate the power of green apples on a few plates. If you know World Market, you know that they excel when it comes to soaps and like I said, it’s all in the details. Plus, I love having something for my guests when they arrive like a charcoal soap bar and fresh lavender dish soap.
Thrilled with how this guest house makeover looks, I can’t wait to host our first guests… If I don’t sneak over there first. My very last tips I’ll leave you with are to remember the details and MAKE PRETTY CHOICES! With World Market’s furniture, that’s easy to do!
