"I envision this bedroom to be cozy and serene." Those were the words our very sweet client used when she hired us to design a guest bedroom for her in-laws that were coming from overseas in eight weeks. The last guest bedroom we did for her (see pic at end of this post) was much more specific to a whimsical style, but this one would be completely different.
Walls were painted Benjamin Moore's Revere Pewter.
Generously sized night stands like this one allow for a lamp, and more space for alarm clock and/or cell phone. Drawer space or an extra open area give space for him/her to store a book, TV remote, or any other item your guest brought with them that they want to have near the bed.
......p.s. Terrariums (you can find these everywhere these days!) with some stones and faux succulents are great table top decor because they bring in the look of nature and never need to be watered!
For us, 'cozy and serene' included light airy bedding, natural textures and woods, and accent colors that were spa like. We chose an upholstered headboard with oil bronze nail heads in a nubby linen fabric.
The duvet cover and bed skirt are fresh and neutral so if the homeowner decides to change out the accent colors, there will not be a need to lose these previously bought pieces.
The window roman shade is of woven material. It has black out and is cordless.
Blocking the morning sun and giving privacy to guests is key. This is your chance to make a stylish statement!
We added custom pleated drapes for drama. The medallion pattern on this curtain is so pretty! We hung them from brass rods and rings.
A few pillows give the bed a comfy soft colorful look and can be used as an extra cushion behind the standard or king bed pillow, or for behind the back to sit up in bed.
Mix the fabric you use for a layered textural look! We included velvet, knitted and embroidered pillows.
Every guest bedroom should have a large wall mirror for viewing clothing, hair and make up. I also love a bench as well, so someone can take on/pull off shoes or place a suitcase or clothing on it.
Here is the guest bedroom we created for this client previously. We had fun with this one, bringing in sunny yellow and happy green tones. We used stage coach valances, sheers, and cottage rustic looking furniture pieces.
