Marc and Stephanie Selnick's guest bedroom isn't at all hospitable for guests. They hope the design team can give the room a brand-new look that coincides with the rest of their house.
Host and interior designer Kristan Cunningham arrives to see the uninviting guest room. Currently, the walls are unadorned and white and the windows have no coverings so overnight guests are awakened at dawn's first light. The furniture is a matching set leftover from Mark's bachelor days and is no longer in the style the couple has grown into.
A charming bed-and-breakfast look is created in the room all under the $1,000 budget. Here's how:
- The white walls are painted a muted sage color to coordinate with the existing darker sage carpet. Design coordinator Dave Sheinkopf adds molding up high on the walls to delineate the walls and vaulted ceiling.
