HGTV Urban Oasis 2012: Guest Bedroom Pictures
A hand-tufted wool pile area rug in a muted, gravel-colored tone anchors the design of the guest bedroom, a cozy escape from the apartment's social spaces.
"If white leather was going to be the defining element of the master, I didn't want to repeat it here," says Lindsay, who opted for a sand-colored linen upholstery for the guest suite bed.
Dark wood nightstands provide storage and tabletop surface to display blown-glass candle holders and Lucite-based table lamps, which echo the organic theme of wall art.
An iRobot Roomba® Vacuum Cleaning Robot, offered as part of the HGTV Urban Oasis 2012 Giveaway grand prize, cleans floors of dirt, dust and pet hair via a patented three-step cleaning system.
"We wanted to sell the lifestyle of this corner. You are sitting here, reading a book," says design consultant Linda Woodrum. "You can lie down and enjoy views of the ocean or the city. It's the perfect little niche."
A potted palm and greenery-filled mercury glass vase lend the room's essential pop of green. One-of-a-kind artwork — digitally altered photographic prints — stands in place of a traditional headboard.
A walk-in closet offers overhead storage cabinets, hanger space and under-counter storage drawers. A dark wood finish provides a nice foil for the guest bedroom's light, bright palette.
Brushed linen pillows in a happy shade of sherbet find a home in tea-stained rattan peel storage baskets, which can be used to stash blankets or linens.
Botanical prints, originally selected for the apartment's hallway, find a home in the guest bedroom's far corner. Colors complement the room's vibrant accessories.
"I think many pieces in bedrooms are psychological," says design consultant Linda Woodrum. "You may never use this chaise, but it's the thought that you are on vacation — 'That's the very spot where I want to be.'"
