Our Sunny Guest Bedroom
This room is definitely the second kind.
When we first bought the house it looked like this and while the walls were yellow it wasn't the kind of yellow that inspires me. So we went white. Always a good choice. Fresh, clean, easy. And it looked like this. I liked it but didn't love it. I realized that what I needed was MORE of a statement. I decided to really go all out and decorate it like the ultimate hotel room. Since it's not one of the main living areas I felt like it was a good place to really go BOLD. So we took a giant leap... wallpaper.
Then I just ran with the theme and embraced sort of a sunny, tropical vibe. This rattan bed really completed the space. For, like, five minutes I thought about switching to a more neutral rug but then I decided that the mix of patterns FEEL good to me. Rules are made to be broken, you know?
I love having guests and this room is one of my favorite rooms in the house. Here are photos taken this summer by Alyssa Rosenheck for our Domino feature. This room didn't make it into the magazine. I think probably because it was the fall issue and these colors just aren't autumn. That said, I wanted to make sure and show you the photos anyway, since I had so much fun styling the room just for that shoot!
If you have any questions let me know in the comments! xx- Elsie
