Happy Monday, everyone! I’m going to delve back into the Guest Bedroom design right away today. You’ll remember from last week’s post that the Guest Bedroom paint color is Newburg Green by Benjamin Moore:

My friend really loved the gold end table in the photo below, and so do I. In this case, end tables would be a great DIY project so I didn’t make any retail selections for those pieces.

I did, however, come up with some options for lamps, bedding and rugs. Take a peek; which do you like best?

lamps

Option 1: A fun lamp with some mid-century flair. This option could be great with a colored lamp shade.

bedding2

Option 1: This duvet from Urban Outfitters features, well, the world! Great for those who love to travel (aka the homeowners).

Option 2: A basic but beautiful option from Restoration Hardware (in Flax).

rugs2

Option 1: A solid rug in a warm color, like this one from Capel Rugs, allows other elements in the room to be the center of attention.

Option 2: A fun pattern on the floor would pair nicely with simpler bedding. This rug is from Surya.

Too often, homeowners look at deeper colors like this and shy away. Don’t be that person! Yes, it’s a bolder color choice, but when a space is executed correctly, the color is just part of a larger composition. I mean, how beautiful are these spaces?! The color is just one part of the rooms, and look how well they turned out…
