Link Love: gorgeous guest rooms, simple but stunning kitchen makeover, and more

Gorgeous Guest Rooms
Architectural Digest
For a weary traveler, a stylish, well-appointed guest room gives a sense of comfort hotels can’t match. We’ve gathered a dozen chic examples from AD’s archives that would make any visitor want to stay awhile.

Mini Kitchen Makeover
Centsational Girl
“…prepping and cooking in this kitchen made me realize I was not in love with the color of the cabinetry, so I decided while I was up there, I might as well just refinish them. I also swapped out the light fixture and add a much needed window shade.” Stunning results.

Book Turned Lamp
“Etsy seller, typewriterboneyard, turns hardback books into table lamps. The bulbs used are ‘Radio’ reproduction bulbs (like this one). The maker notes that that bottom of the books are intact, which means you could stack the lamp on other hardbacks to give it some verticality.”

Add Style, Function to Your Outdoor Space with Carpet
Charles and Hudson
“With summer in full swing, your home’s outdoor areas are likely getting a lot of use. We’ve already talked about how to create a year-round outdoor living space, complete with furniture and seasonal elements. When you’re creating such an area, you may also want to consider adding flooring–and what better than outdoor-friendly carpet?”

Unexpected Renovation Treat: A Note From the Past
“When the salvage team removed a lintel, they found a note dated 1973 and addressed to ‘Future Man’ from Jack Barbour, the man who originally worked on the space. The website doesn’t share the whole story, which is that Jack was a first-generation American from Belgium who passed away 20 years ago.”
