Current Projects: A Guest Bedroom in Bedford

This guest bedroom was a bit bland before, but we infused it with color and the space really came to life, just in time for a visit from the in-laws.

Builder specified paint and a near-empty space needed something to spice it up.  Going off of the granite in the attached bathroom, I pulled out a warm orange tone as our initial inspiration, Sherwin Williams Decorous Amber #0007.  The color alone brought such transformation!  I envisioned wallpapering an accent wall behind the headboard in this fabulous pattern from Schumacher, but there wasn’t quite enough time to pull this off with guests visiting so soon. 

With such a deep tone on the walls, I wanted the bedding and accessories to be light enough to pop.  Neutral shades of champagne, ivory, and brown work beautifully against the walls!

Light floods into the room through these windows.  For any guest to enjoy sleeping in, we had to have traversing draperies that can fully block out the light when needed. 

The patterned rug and pillows tie in the color scheme.  Warm palettes like this one make me want to linger longer – just what you would want in a guest room (assuming you like your guests)!

I absolutely love the shape of this chair.  Upholstered in linen with nail head trim, it is the perfect accent chair for the space.  A round etched mirror and chandelier bring in romantic details. 

Guest rooms and secondary spaces are so often left behind in the effort to finish the main living spaces, but they can be such fun spaces to do and have such personality!  I would love to help with yours – to find out more about our design services, please give us a call!

  1. I really liked your post. The room is so organized and it’s very clean. I absolutely love the shape of this chair. The color bending are so cool. I really loved the arrangement. I hope I can do that in my room.

  2. Thanks Adrienne! The pillow and curtains were custom made locally. The bedding was purchased at Restoration Hardware and Pottery Barn, but I’m not sure if it is still available.

  3. Thank you for posting! I recently introduced to the “burnt orange color” from a friend’s house and have been looking for ideas to give my own bedroom a face lift. The arrangements and this color scheme are gorgeous and have given me some new ideas to work with.
