Sweet Sitting Area
To encourage conversation between the homeowner and her guests, a pair of midcentury modern chairs upholstered in white leather were placed across from the bed and flanked by a Moroccan side table.
Bring on the Blue
From the floor up, the entire guest room is wrapped in shades of blue. A basic queen bed frame is dressed with blue and white linens and placed in the corner to create a cozy niche. Touches of red are placed throughout the room to coordinate with the oversized American flag.
Touch of Brass
An old midcentury-modern dresser was transformed to fit the space by painting its drawer fronts in different shades of blue, creating an ombre effect. To save on budget and keep some of the dresser’s original charm, its existing brass drawer pulls were removed, polished and then put back on.
Classic White Curtains
To keep the room feeling light, bright and casual, its windows are dressed with ultra-white cotton draperies. Basic white cotton is an excellent fabric choice for creating custom window treatments with minimal expense. Commonly found for less than $12 per yard, cotton is a fraction of the cost of higher-end fabrics like linen and silk.
