    Man I love these kinds of posts! I LIVE for them! In my former life I was a designer…or rich person who had an interior decorator (stick hand over burning flame like in Coming to America)

    My last name isn’t Boone!!! :)

    Our bedroom (shoot, our whole dang house) also features a LOT of IKEA furniture and accessories. I loved this project because it gave me inspiration and ideas for new ways to accessorize, place, and fiddle with our existing IKEA stuff – as well as ideas about what kind of new IKEA stuff we might need!

    I think the finished room looks great and very welcoming. Kudos on finishing such an impressive project at what must be a pretty difficult time for all of you.

    So non-IKEA stuff was allowed in the IKEA room? Swedish people are so f-ing screwed up that’s for sure.

    A sweet-faced boy, good with kids, dogs, and IKEA? KEEPER.

  • slappyintheface

    still waiting for that invite … um … yeah

  • Caren Lynn Cross

    I heart the lamps. So neat! Especially since they make Tyrant roll his eyes.

  • dooce

    Thanks for the kind words, guys. A lot of people worked hard on this, and we’re really proud!

    The plunger was probably a reference to a wine bottle from a while back. Wasn’t it called PlungerHead and a fav of yours ?

  • araggio

    The only thing I could recommend to add is an iron and ironing board. It is one of the things all of our guest thank us for in the guest bedroom.

    You all did a great job. Love the rug!

  • giggloki

    While not everything in the room would be what I’d pick, I’d stay in that room any day. Which I guess is what makes a good guest room. Will defiantly steal some ideas when I ever get around to fixing up a room for guests, and then also getting people who’d visit. :)

  • gwenlle

    Thanks for providing all of your sources (even the non-IKEA ones). The room looks really nice; and I liked the video you posted last week. Do you mind if i ask: where did you get the basket that you put all the fancy guest stuff in.

    Thanks so much!

  • Wowzers

    Thank you for answering my question! Yippee! Now, where can I buy those track, clips, and carriers?

  • AshesVonDust

    My last name IS Boone :(


    It is a nice room though :)

  • kimjay_everyday

    I’d like to make a reservation, puh-lease!!! Is it kid-friendly? Cause the Peanut and Marlo could par-tay!


  • Janice

    Thanks for the references. The room is so well thought out, colorful enough to be welcoming and yet allow the visitor to feel it is their own space.

    Does Dane whistle?

  • tallnoe

    Heather: is the panel in the middle, behind the curtains (or so it seems), on the same set of clips and stuff as the curtains? Or is that done differently?
    That wall is so rad.

  • ChrissyD

    I just watched the reveal video again, and noticed the water pitcher. I love that the lid is also the glass….such a whimsical design. I hope I can find it on Pottery Barn. Nice job on the decorating.

  • dianemaggipintovoiceover

    that kid has a future in assembling ikea crap. does he do that for a living? cuz he sho’ could!

    also, writing this on 3/15, and i <3 cami. but … do your advertisers <3 her too? i know, i know — you’ve heard this before. it’s just a little … weird … her abundant appearances …

  • phoebe218

    I love that the square accent pillow costs almost as much as the bed frame. Yeah Ikea! (not a criticism… just like the juxtaposition).

  • Kristen Marie

    Dooce, First, I love the room and all the great accents. I too am a little confused by Cami’s constant appearance in your blog. I get that she is your best friend and you are trying to give her and her blog some PR. But, c’mon. We come here for you because we love YOU! Also, your style is fanstastic, I would love to see more of it and less of the unrealistic style that Cami rocks.

  • Diorama

    I like Cami pics. Maybe Heather doesn’t want to do it right now. Maybe her style is admiring Cami’s style at this moment in time. It’s her blog. I don’t know why some think she is giving Cami a golden ticket to fame and fortune,it’s not that earth shattering. Maybe Heather is changing and evolving like humans are known to do…

  • OrangeLily

    Just commenting here because comments were closed above. Hang in there, lady. We’re wishing well for you, your whole family. Hang in there.

    This might sound like an odd thing to bring up, but there’s a point to it. Yesterday the View had John Ramsey on, and his minister advised him, when the going gets really tough, when it all gets too hard to handle, go to sleep. Go sleep. You won’t be thinking of anything then. And who knows, you may feel a little better, or a little stronger, when you wake up.

    BTW, nice room. ;)

  • Angrymermaid

    hi Heather….love love love the room. It looks amazing. I live on an island in the middle of the Atlantic ocean….sadly with no access to IKEA.

    Just wanted to say I’ve been following you for many years. I just had a peek at Leta’s most recent picture and I can’t even begin to absorb how grown up she’s looking. I feeling like I’ve watched her grow up from afar. Your kids are beautiful and I think you’re doing an amazing job at raising interesting healthy children.

    This is a difficult time for you. Hang in there. There are so many of us cheering you (and Jon) on behind the scenes. I’m experiencing something very similar…and you’re site has been a wonderful place to come and just feel normal.
