Inspirations for Guest Rooms



I thought I would start this week's posts with some
guest bedroom inspirations. Really they can be applied
to any bedrooms. Some of them really don't take a
whole lot to create. For example, the bedroom above
has white walls. All of the color that liven the room
are purely in the accessories - colorful lamps, throw
pillows and linens and a wonderful painting that really
pulls the whole room together.



This room is very soothing with lots of texture in the linen.






It's a great idea to stock books, magazines
and water for your guests. I usually leave
1-2 bottles of water with a glass so they
don't have to get up to have some water.



This is a great use of space in a small room. There's no
rule that you can't put a bed in front of a window. This
space plan made the most sense for this room.



This room is very natural and
organic in the use of materials.



We still have the romantics to think of.



The chandelier, beautiful headboard and thick
drapes really give this room a sense of luxury.



A bedroom doesn't have to be filled with items for
it to be comfortable for someone to stay in.



Last but not least, I love how this platform bed is
made from slats instead of solid wood to give it a
more architectural sense of appeal.

The two books above are absolutely wonderful for bedroom
inspirations. As many of you know, I am an avid collector
of books and love to read and study.

If you need additional inspiration, here are a couple of past
posts I did specifically on bedrooms.

I hope everyone had a wonderful and safe New Year's!

Now it's back to work :P

i was told when creating a guest room you don't want it to be too comfortable or your guests will never leave, but not too cold either or you'll never have guests. these are great mid point images for guest rooms. very nice!

Things That Inspire said...

I was a guest at a relative's home over Thanksgiving, and I can tell you what is highly valued by me (as a guest): a decent bed, enough blankets, a choice of pillows )not everyone likes thick, firm, high pillows!), and a drawer/closet space so I don't have to live out of my suitcase. None of these criteria were met, which makes me resolved to create a guest room in my next house that is very comfortable. (To top it all off, I had to share a queen air mattress with my husband, which was VERY uncomforable)

Great post, especially since many of us traveled for the holidays and had a mixed experience as a guest!

I totally agree about the guestrooms. I've also learned to give some downtime or free time for guests so they can relax and not feel smothered with activities. There's something about a lovely guestroom and being a gracious host, we often overlook the guestroom and what's in it because it's not a room that's always used in the house.

Hope all of you had a Lovely New Year's!
