Hey loves. Happy Friday. Woo Hoo look at me, 3 posts this week! *insert happy dance* Today I'm giving you dolls an update on my home, Diamond Domaine. If you remember, I purchased my home a little over a year ago and besides my Christmas decor update I haven't given you dolls an update. Now that I am free and my time is once again my own, I'm making it a point to actually focus on making my home the domaine of my dreams. Spending 80 percent of my time on the road made it an absolute pain to be home for furniture deliveries let alone shopping or even figuring out what the hell my home style was. (P.S Still don't know! *Kanye Shrug*)
I want to start a series here where I walk you through how I do just that. Please join me on the journey to transform #DiamondDomaine into my own cozy little castle. After all your home should be your safe haven, most favorite place and where you feel most comfortable, right? After becoming a homeowner I quickly realized it takes time and work hunni to get it together how you really want. Designing a fabulous home you are proud of takes time and patience so don't rush it and stay true to you.
Today I'm going to start from the bottom and show you my guest suite which is on my first floor. This is where family and friends stay when they come to visit me. Since I live about 40 mins from DC I tend to get a fair amount of visitors regularly. I found making this large space into a suite for them was super easy and convenient for me and a more comfortable option opposed to trecking luggage and all up to the 3rd level where the bedrooms are significatly smaller. My goal was NOT to break the bank, in fact I kept it very budget friendly hunty! *High Five Me!* I staged the space with items I already owned, DIY'd myself and other IKEA finds that wouldn't break the bank. My goal for the space was inviting, cozy, and comfortable on a budget. So tell me HOW'd I DO?!?! Leave me your thoughts on the space in the comments below. Would you want to come by and be a guest at #DiamondDomaine?!
Bedding and wall tapestry from Target // Bedside table and lamp from IKEA (already owned)
TV should be mounted.....one day....one day soon. Any volunteers please let me know! #notkidding
In the bathroom I keep just a few essentials you might have left at home. Dove soap is ma fav!
This plant is totally fake but ain't she cute thou. IKEA greenery for the WIN!
Those paintings on the wall would be my handy Picasso skills. Give me a paint brush and some water colors and I'm one happy camper! :-D Frames are from IKEA.
This table actually turned out to be an Amazon.com #FAIL and after putting it together I was far too lazy/busy to send it back so it found a new home down here. My clear chairs are from upstairs but weren't being used so instead of spending more money on new chairs I just migrated them down here as well. The fridge and microwave are
probably most definitely unnecessary but at the time it made sense. I basically don't need to shop on Amazon late at night while exhausted. SMH #facts
Snacks anyone?? The kitchen is upstairs so just in case they are too lazy(those steps are HELL after your comfortable and settled for the night), sleepy, or drunk (hey it happens and I'm not judging!) for that journey I placed a few basics in this cute lil basket.
This couch has been with me since my Shreveport days and although pretty ugly (sorry Lola...yes she has a name lol) this is THE MOST COMFORTABLE couch ever!
