It’s that time of year when we often find ourselves opening our homes to friends and family. Whether you have one guest or many, it's always nice to offer a space that's just as interesting as it is relaxing. There is just something to be said about staying in a room (or home) that is thoughtfully designed and well curated.
The room pictured above is a great example of a well designed guest bedroom. There is a good amount of color and yet the room still sings of simplicity because of its white walls, black and white bedding and modern furniture.
Create this designer look with modern hanging light fixtures. In fact, whenever I decorate a bedroom, I always like to start with the lighting. It’s always the focal point of the room. This particular fixture is both glamorous and modern, and you just can’t beat that combination.
The bedside lighting is styled with playful mix matched table lamps. And, although the lamps are different colors they are still cohesive because they're the same shape.
Once you have the main elements in place, you can then have a bit of fun with the walls and the floor. I love the vintage looking gallery wall just above the very colorful geometric rug. It all works together, so perfectly. When you mix old and new, high and low, vintage and modern you almost always end up with seriously beautiful space that is anything but serious.

While the décor of a guest room plays a big part in making your guests feel welcomed, I always like to make sure that my guest room always has comfortable sheets, an soft throw, water by the bedside, small soaps, a book or two and a snack within reach. Sometimes, it’s the little things that make the biggest difference.
I put together a few pieces above to get you started on an interesting and inviting guest room just like the one above.
