A Quiet Yet Energizing Space

When interior designer Linda Woodrum set about designing the guest bedroom for HGTV Dream Home 2009, she envisioned a cozy, lived-in space with walls painted a peaceful shade of buttercream and a bed blanketed in heirloom-style fabrics like the kind you'd find in your grandmother's linen closet. To balance the old-fashioned feel, Linda ramped up the energy with jolts of color, interesting texture combinations and bold patterns, including paisley and check.

A Scene From Sonoma

A happy tablescape greets guests who enter the bedroom. A platinum emulsion entitled "Birds on Wire," by famed photographer Jock McDonald, serves as the focal point of this foyer space. "It was perfect for us as we had the long view coming down the hall from the master and we needed something strong enough to grab your eye," explains Linda. "This photograph is just great since you keep seeing more and more as you approach. It really pulls you into the picture."

French Flair

On the bottom shelf of the foyer table rests a black wicker basket filled with blankets and extra sheets and French-style flower buckets, the perfect catchall for bedroom clutter.
