It’s honeymoon week on the blog! Six years ago this week Scott and I were basking in the sun of the Greek Isles on our honeymoon. On Tuesday I shared some of our photos from the islands of Mykonos and Santorini, and I told you all about the amazing Mykonos Grace Hotel. Today I’m really excited to show you our guest room, and to give you the details on how our honeymoon, and that hotel in specific, inspired the design of the room.
The islands of Greece are awash in white and blue, so a few blue accessories were needed to complete the color scheme of the guest room. I just love that the vase (Crate & Barrel), rug (Target), and pillow (West Elm) each fade from darker shades of blue to lighter, reminding me of the way the ocean appears to change colors at different depths.
While we couldn’t justify the added price for an even larger framed photo, we did pay the small added expense to have an electronic dimmer installed on the frame, which can be controlled by a small remote control. It’s very convenient to be able to turn the frame on and off without having to plug and unplug it all the time, and it’s just plain fun to use the remote to adjust the brightness of the light…it’s almost like being able to control a sunset with a remote control.
Seeing the photo lit up, it truly glows like the sunset. The photo looks great during the day, but at night, it really becomes the star of the room.
