with four bedrooms in a house, and five boys, can we afford to allocate one bedroom for guests only? the answer, yes, we thought it was important. the design began with this pair of vintage bamboo headboards i picked up from one of my favorite sources,
melissa with stuff: vintage. a little black lacquer anyone?
where to begin with inspiration? the room was a box, with no interesting elements to speak of. my solution, add moulding to the only uninterrupted wall.
i use this trick often... the moulding adds architectural interest and is the perfect backdrop for the glossy beds.
using two twin beds, instead of a queen, keeps my options open down the road.
this could easily become one of the boys' rooms when they get older.
i've always loved this bungalow 5 side table, but the scale wasn't right. i called on my
carpenter wes to give me a custom option that was perfect for my space.
the bonus of going custom, you can have any color you want, and i wanted
benjamin moore's 'citron'
because the twin beds are sharing a bedside table, i didn't want to take up valuable space with a table lamp. instead, i opted for these steampunk swing wall lamps.
before we see the before and afters, take a look at the design board for this room...
more eye candy...
i absolutely LOVE how this room turned out, i think it could be one of my favorites, but don't i say that about every room?!
for all you family and friends due for a visit, your room is waiting...
design swell. live well.
design is a way of life.
