Before & After: Our Kid-Friendly
Guest Room Designed by Oh Joy!

Before & After: Kelly Golightly's Guest Room designed by Oh Joy! #villagolightly #ohjoy #targetstyle #interiordesign

I’m excited to share another room makeover with you! Behold our kid-friendly guest room designed by Joy Cho of Oh Joy! for The Christopher Kennedy Compound: Modernism Week Show House, presented by Traditional Home. It’s just as colorful, whimsical and full of joy as you would expect from Joy. But you won’t believe the before…

We have two guest rooms in the house, and this is the smaller of the two.

We wanted it to be kid-friendly for when our nieces and nephew visit (or friends with kids), but adult-friendly too, for when we have both rooms occupied by adult visitors at the same time. Or, when my parents visit and my Dad’s snoring chases my poor Mom to another room. 😉

YES, this dark cave is what Joy, who emits light, was charged with.

Where others may have flinched seeing this dark room, Joy knew what she was going to do right away to add her bright, colorful, whimsical signature style.

First, it was literally brightened up by adding a huge window to the front wall. It also got a sliding door on the side wall, both by Fenessco. Those two things alone made a HUGE difference.

The other big change which had a huge impact was the flooring. The ugly brown carpet was ripped up and replaced with this Crossville flooring, in a soothing shade of pale grey.

Now, for all of those amazing Oh Joy! signature details…can you believe almost everything is from Target?

Joy designs several collections for Target and luckily furniture is a new addition. That daybed? Oh Joy! for Target. This is how to do a room on a budget without it feeling like it’s on a budget!

For a surprise inside of the closet, Joy created this custom wallpaper using Spoonflower in the same print she used on the bench. I could not love it more! She styled the closet with colorful vintage suitcases and Trina Turk clothing.

The walls got a fresh coat of Dunn Edwards white paint in Whisper. To add some visual interest to them, without it being overbearing, Joy added these darling DIY gold dots. Also adding major visual interest, that jaw-dropping Kelly Wearstler strada light for Visual Comfort via Ferguson Showrooms. You’ve got to mix some high with low for a dynamic effect and this was the place to do it.

Those darling pom-pom curtains? Also a fun DIY!

Most all of the accessories, like the side table, lamp and pillows are all Oh Joy! for Target.

How fun is this bookcase styled up with those word vases? Oh Joy! collections sell out quickly and while the YAY is out of stock, OMG and OK are still available, but I’m sure not for long.

This room wasn’t just a huge hit with the thousands of people who came through to view it for Modernism Week, it also won over the heart of Kaylee Golightly, who has officially claimed it as her room. 😉

Can you blame her?

Maybe if I’m lucky, she’ll let me hang out here with her occasionally. (How cool is that headboard BTW? And that chair?!)
