The holiday guest room, kelly green, an accent color. SusanVitz-Ward came to me wanting help with a former attic, now a guest room retreat. Company was coming for Christmas, we needed to hurry and luckily I picked items that shipped relatively fast ! Her contractor did a great job creating this small, one window space complete with an amazing adjoining bath. She needed everything. Without a day to spare we installed, just before company arrive, but yesterday we filtered in her two bedside lamps, the two straggling items. While the loaners I gave her for the holidays were ok, this are perfect and worth the wait.
We started with the bath and needed to pick and receive the tile asap. Susan had chosen a Restoration Hardware vanity, and we worked off of that. I fell in love with these floor tile from one of my favorite vendors. Looks like grey washed oak, but actually a tile - what a bonus. We then mixed in a shower wall and floor tile, something a little different pattern. All very clean and simple.
We added two chrome wall sconces to tie back to the faucets.
Now came the bedroom area. Keeping this space tone on tone, we carried the bathroom colors into the bedroom, but punched it up with just a touch of kelly green. I created this board to give her an idea. She was loving the kelly when I showed her, then got a little nervous, they came back to it, and so glad she did.
Dropping off the lamps yesterday I got a good look at the finished product, and have to say, it's one of my favorite small space bedrooms ! It feels like a retreat, a calm get-a-way. Even an all neutral, this space would have been pretty, but I love the splash of color just here and there. We added a large drum chandelier and a little graphic paper behind the bed to bring it up a notch. I love that Susan said she just might lock herself away in this room tonight for a little "time away," and it feels just like that.
Don't be afraid of a little pattern of pattern !
The perfect size side tables in a light but interesting material.
Take a closer look at these side tables. West Elm and saved a bunch on the budget. Love the bone detail and compliments the bath so well.
