Feeling Tribal

I've been feeling a wee bit tribal lately. Let me show you what I mean....

The counsel has spoken and I think that the winner, in my humble opinion anyway would be black and neutral tribal print with pops of bright color. Which brings me to the guest room, which last time you were here was slated to look like this...

guest room

Which was inspired by this room from Holly Mathis Interiors....

Which can I just add a side note here for a minute...At the risk of sounding blog-stalker crazy, I love her! Her blog is fabulous, she is fabulous. And she always goes to this place called Urban Market in Houston and let me just say I want to go!!!!!! 
Well, the guest room ideas have sort of evolved since I shared with you my idea board, mostly being shaped by the unavailability of the duvet cover pictured on the board. I don't like to give companies bad reviews...unless they deserve it, but honestly you would have to do me wrong pretty bad to get a bad review from me, on the internet. However, I am very disappointed in the online service staff at Urban Outfitters. I ordered the duvet cover from the idea board, paid for it and waited for TWO WEEKS wondering when it was going to show up. Finally I got an email saying, "sorry we've cancelled your order because our product is unavailable." I wasn't irritated that the duvet was unavailable, it happens. Just that they sold me one, while they didn't have a grip on what kind of inventory they had and then waited two weeks to tell me about it. All that being said, if you ever want to buy anything at an Urban Outfitters store in person, not online, I support that and I will continue to. I've bought things there and been very happy with them. I'm sure this was only a fluke and if you bought something from their online store this wouldn't happen to you, but I just thought I'd warn you. 
So back to the drawing board I went...... and I bought this lovely plain duvet cover..
But I plan to dress it up with some pillows.
All of that being said, I was a bit concerned regarding the whole look of the room because that oh so perfect duvet cover was the centerpiece of the room. It brought the life....
what was I going to do???

Because it took me so such an incredibly long time to gather accessories for the guest room and the cleaning of it wasn't complete until just a few hours before family arrived I never finished writing this post ....until now.
So enjoy the pictures of guest room, so far. It is as everything else, a work in progress.

This is my quick art for a little tribal flair. 

I like the way the pallet headboard turned out, fit's perfectly on that awkwardly shaped wall.

 More quick art in both of these pictures, just more ways to tie in the coral. Also, the second one is hiding a fusebox.

I love the soap pumps made out of jars.

Did y'all know that stores do not sell coral colored towels in the fall? I mean I guess it makes sense, coral isn't typically a "fall color". All the coral towels seen here are hand dyed by yours truly.
It was worth it.

 Have a fabulous day!
