The pair of guest bedrooms on the upper level of HGTV Dream Home 2007 shares the same floor plan, but couldn't be more different from one another in decor. The four-poster walnut bed is dressed in cream and off-white, with a black-checked cotton throw and matching throw pillows that offset the bright painting across the room.
The white and beige stripes of the upholstered chair and ottoman form the palette for what designer Linda Woodrum calls \"the girly bedroom,\" although there's not an inch of lace or a single floral pattern in sight. \"I didn't want anything frilly,\" she says. \"I wanted the room to be more feminine than the others, but also a place where a man wouldn't feel out of place.\"
\"I love a Windsor chair,\" Linda says. \"I love how modern it looks, and how it goes great with antiques like the embroidered pieces and with this dark bureau.\" Above the bureau, which is topped with matching reading lamps, hangs a beautiful, heavy wood-framed mirror finished to look like aged leather.
The bed is positioned to give the best possible view of Winter Park's great outdoors surrounded by floor-to-ceiling draperies. \"I always tell people not to be afraid to do a traditional treatment around a window that's not a traditional shape,\" she says. \"And I really like it when curtains go all the way to the ceiling.\"
This guest bath features a mirror framed in pine boards, silver and pewter fixtures and a soothing cream color on the walls. A doorway opens onto the back deck and the woods beyond.
The shower in the second guest bath showcases silver fixtures and is lined with cream tiles.
