Consultation – Formal Guest Bedroom

Sometimes a space can have all the right elements, but needs some tweaking and manicuring to bring out the truly incredible space that “can be”. This room had a major transformation with only minor additions – re-working the items within the space instead of re-designing.

The biggest change in the space is obviously the arrangement of the furniture. Originally – the couch and bed did not fit and the gorgeous fireplace was not focal. By re-arranging the furniture, the room feels so much larger and true spaces for hospitality exist.

This couch was so close to the fireplace, your knees might burn and the decor felt random and disconnected from the vibe of the room. During the walkthrough, we also talked about art placement and what should be focal. We decided to re-frame a piece in the room for the mantle and re-use this Bird piece elsewhere in the room.

This mantle’s decor was updated by limiting the amount of decor, creating a carnival glass theme, and clustering like objects. We centered the potpourri to break up our “pillar and carnival glass” clusters. The re-framed vintage advertisement creates a much more dramatic feel for over-the-fire than the previous piece (evoking the “Marie Antoinette Room” theme of this client).

The photo that was originally above the mantle is the perfect over-the-couch artwork. Now a true hospitality space exists; an area for guests to enter and drop their luggage, sit down and take off their shoes, and just relax enjoying their home away from home.

This wall felt a little forgotten – and when the overhead light is off – dark. By pulling one of the nightstands to this wall, another moment is created and warmed by lamplight.
