Guest Bedroom Update

Saturday, June 14th, 2014

I recently finished an online design plan for a family guest bedroom:

Mary Ellen wanted a new and fresh guest room for her parents who stays with her a few months out of the year. And she specified that she wanted the room to look pretty! Everything in the room was going except for the carpet and ceiling fan. It is hard to see in the photos, but the carpet has a yellow undertone.

I had suggested twin beds, which I think is a great option for guest rooms. She decided to go with a queen size bed. Here is her final headboard selection:

I wanted to brighten the room as much as possible, so I suggested white bedding:

With a beautiful, colorful duvet folded at the bottom of the bed:

I also suggested placing the headboard centered against the window to balance out the room:

She is going to look for a small dresser for the wall on the right above. One trick I use to save space in bedrooms, is to hang the tv up on a wall bracket and out of the way:

There were several different ways we could have gone to select a paint color using the duvet cover:

She decided she loved Benjamin Moore Lavender Wash CSP-515:

Especially with the window treatments she chose:

I wish I could fast forward and show you the after pictures! Mary Beth said she would share photos after she finished the room.

I think it looks marvelous! And so does Mary Beth which is what really matters. What do you think of the plan put together for the guest bedroom?

Aren’t Trey Ceilings Grand?

I have not worked with many trey ceilings in the past until recently. This week alone I had two colors consultations with trey ceilinged rooms. One was in a new contemporary home:

And just today I started working on this dining room trey ceiling below:

I have never had a trey ceiling,  but I really love the drama of the architecture:

Depending on your preference, there are so many different ways to paint this area:

Some homeowners like a lighter trey ceiling:

Which are beautiful, but the trend now seems to be a darker ceiling at the top:

Love, love, love this room:

Another option is to paint the trey ceiling the same color as the walls:

Which is your favorite way to paint the trey? I have to say that I really like the darker color. Look at this beauty:

Agree Or Disagree?

One of the best pieces of decorating advice I have always tried to follow, is that when you think your decorated room is finished, take a step back and snap a picture:

When you look at the photo, does the room still look finished to you? Does anything need to be added? Or taken away? Let’s take this bedroom picture above for an example. I think it is very pretty, but did you notice an idea that might make this bedroom look even better?

I think a long scarf or piece of fabric at the bottom of the bed would look perfect here to balance the top and bottom of the bed.. I experimented with a piece from another bed:

I think it looks much better! (It does need to be a bit wider though than the example piece.) I have always loved using that bottom piece on the bed. Does anyone know what it is called??  I think using the same fabric as the pillow and window treatments will be the perfect finishing touch for the room:

Gray and White Bedroom Design

Liz gray & white comforter

I just finished a recent bedroom consultation and if I may say, I think it came out fabulous! I love everything we choose. It started with the comforter above. Wall color was next:

cobblestone path

Benjamin Moore Cobblestone Gray 1606

The color you see on the screen does not do this color any justice. It is a beautiful warm, bluish medium gray. It works with the bedding perfectly.

Then time for the fun accessories!:

The rug pattern works well with the bedding. So pretty!

A beautiful pair of lamps:
