Three Ways To A Beautiful Guest Bedroom

For the first three ways of 2012 I thought I'd pull together some ideas for guest bedrooms. Perhaps you had guests to stay over the holidays and realised the spare room wasn't quite up to scratch. Or maybe you're looking for a project to work on during the weekends. Either way, here are three different ideas for adding interesting features to a guest bedroom. First up we see how a twin bedroom doesn't have to feel childlike; the use of smouldering grey hues, vintage lighting and luxe textiles creates an inviting and adult scheme. Secondly, we see a fresh and feminine guest bedroom which is a fine example of how a gallery wall can work to frame a simple headboard. (I must add, I love the bedside table in this space!) Finally, the third bedroom provides inspiration for contrasting hues. Given a guest bedroom is only ever a temporary space, why not dabble into something a little more daring than your usual decor? I think this charcoal and mustard combo is a real winner. Which space gets your vote?

  1. I'm liking the contrasting colors bedroom and also the pattern mixing on that bed. I live in an NYC sized 1BR so no guest room to decorate but it's always nice to admire. Happy 2012!

  16. I LOVE the second one! As you noted, the bedside table with the books is fab, and I love the touches of pink, plus I'm always in love with gallery walls in any context. I wish I had a guest bedroom to decorate! Someday.

  17. I usually go for white walls with shots of vibrant colour but I am totally smitten by the mustard (incidentally, one of my favourite colours) against the charcoal wall!!!

    Who knew the industrial look could evoke a sense of cosiness?

    I love it so much that I just might replicate it in my guest bedroom!

    Thank you for your fresh perspective!:D

  18. I am drawn to picture no. 2. But they all seem damn good!

    Happy New year!

  19. I like bits from all of them. I totally agree about being a bit bold in a guest room. We have a very strong Suzy Hoodless wallpaper in ours, but I must admit that I slightly regret not using it in our bedroom instead!

  20. We come here often but never say a peep, but 'smouldering' grabbed our attention - great word!

  26. i really like the idea on the 2nd image...although the 3rd image is more my style, the idea of grouping framed artwork seems like a funky idea...

    ReplyDelete
  27. Much to my surprise, it's no 3 for me!

    Maybe it's the simple charm of the grey and turquoise, or just the wool blankets at the end of the bed that swung it for me!

  28. I'm a huge fan of Schoolhouse Electric Company's new line of furnishings and textiles... glad to see you are too! I am working on a similar gallery wall around our headboard, so I guess my vote goes to room #2, although I love all three!
