HGTV Dream Home 2012: Bedroom Two Pictures
A contemporary take on an Old West theme proves a win in this upstairs guest suite.
Foundation, a glicee on canvas, served as the inspiration for the Americana design of the second-floor guest suite.
A Shaker-style, pencil-post queen bed in a barn-red finish cozies up to wall art, which incorporates iconic symbols and patriotic phrases.
Interior designer Linda Woodrum's Old West theme finds expression in fabric selection. "The paisley reminds me of bandanna print and all bedroom fabrics are very basic; they've been around forever and I think they pair well," she says.
A houndstooth fabric presented in a shade of cobalt covers the room's classic loveseat. Framed photos, displayed at waist height, a potted boxwood and a porcelain, hand-painted urn lend visual interest.
Wall-to-wall gingham carpeting stands in contrast to custom ticking-stripe drapery. The classic fabric pattern is repeated in throw pillows and the bathroom's shower curtain.
A 47-inch flat-screen TV is mounted on an extension arm for ease of display.
Carpet extends into a dedicated closet space, which features pullout bins and hanger rods for wardrobe storage.
The guest suite offers its own private Juliet-style balcony, plus east-facing windows that stream light into the space.
Menswear fabrics lend a modern spin to Linda's Old West, Americana design theme.
An antiqued steel and iron, marble-topped side table serves up refreshments, picnic-style.
Polished-nickel light fixtures — modern, graphic and glamorous — nonetheless work in the space. "Those are modern wagon wheels," says Linda. "They are my ode to Americana."
A cottage-style console table serves up a collection of treasures: a candle-filled hurricane, a blue willow-style urn and a decorative pitcher in a bright cherry shade.
"This room is a nod to Americana. The rich blue walls and ceiling, and all the blue and white patterns with the red accents, set the stage for the bold and dramatic American flag art hung over the bed," says Linda.
Carpet segues to glazed porcelain tile flooring in the guest bathroom, where a 7-foot, quartz-topped maple vanity offers undercounter storage drawers.
The vanity's ceramic washbasin offers dual faucets. A five-foot-tall mirror lends custom-crafted elegance.
Single-handle lavatory faucets provide water efficiency and lend contemporary styling in the traditional space.
Pops of red come in the form of blown-glass tumblers that stand in for apothecary jars.
Photos captured by carpenter David Brown are dressed up in whitewashed wood frames.
The porcelain-clad shower stall sports a mosaic stripe of glass and natural stone tile. The ocean-inspired colors tie the bathroom design to the adjoining bedroom's color palette.
The sleek and stylish handle controls both water volume and temperature.
An adjustable showerhead offers three spray options: soft drench, massage and full-body spray.
The shower window opens to ventilate the space and offers a picturesque view to the east.
