I’m working with a client who has a guest bedroom that is getting total face lift. They currently have a dark mahogany four poster bed and long dresser, both of which will be staying (their decision). While these two pieces aren’t what I would choose for the space, it does give me a fun challenge and force me to be creative with my design choices. Luckily, the room is full of natural light and the client is completely open to any color, style, etc. so their flexibility is really wonderful in giving me total freedom with design. Here’s what I’ve come up with so far…
Option 1: Blue Serenity
For some reason, when I think of a cool, calm, relaxing guest bedroom I think of blue! I loved this wall color and that is what inspired the space. I also really like the way the light blue balances out the white bedding and dark furniture. You can see the various textures used in the bedding, window treatments, decor…this keeps simple from being boring. This design is timeless for sure!
Option 2: Wallpapered Accent Wall
One of the best elements about this room is the high ceilings and large window. The amount of natural light in this space is what dreams are made of. However, this also creates somewhat of a design challenge, as we don’t want there to be too much wall space. I think that this accent wall is a great way to create interest in the room, with out spending a lot. This wallpaper is subtle, yet impactful and I think will be in style for years to come. I kept the rest of the room simple with various shades of cream, blue, brown and black.
Option 3: Green Traditional
I think we all know that green is having a moment – I am loving this kitchen, this bathroom and this office. I’ve never been much of a green lover, but this dark moody shade just works. Plus, when I found this lumber pillow I was sold – isn’t it amazing? It’s easy to use a little bit and make it go a long way. These pillows are to die for and I just love how the art compliments them, but still feels calming and cohesive.
Which is your favorite option?
