Dream Guest Rooms

Of course the jobs where I am given some creative freedom are the best.  This client had some specific needs, and wishes but allowed us to take off from there.  She had some bedrooms in need of an update and the bathrooms as well.  Our trusty contractor Joele from DMC construction was on board to help us achieve our goals.

In our initial discussions I noticed the old large headboard in one room didn’t fit the bed.  Initially I thought it was meant for a king, but there was a post in the middle of the headboard.

It donned on me that back in the day, it wasn’t uncommon for twin beds to be in a master bedroom.  So I came to the conclusion that it was meant for 2 twin beds.  The owner felt it would be a good idea to have 2 twin beds in one of the three guest rooms,  so we painted it a cheery yellow and put it in a different room:

The night stands and armoire are from Redford House.  One of my favorite suppliers!  The make-up console was made from 2 corbels  I bought at Homesense and painted.  Joele then mounted them on the wall and we put a piece of beveled glass on top.  The chair was another Homesense find that I had recovered in a yellow trellis fabric that matches the bed skirts.  I removed the blinds and framed the windows in a gorgeous grey and yellow damask.   You can see the same in the office of Sarah Richardson on the set of her show “Sarah’s House”.  The light is one of my favorite that I have used before.  It is from Robert Abbey

This room was an office that was changed into a guest room.  I liked the idea of having a different feeling for each of the rooms.  This was a very masculine room to start off with, so I thought I would keep it masculine with a fresh twist.  The fireplace was never used, as the room would be far too hot!  So I had Joele remove it.  Of course the lighting had to go too!

The bed, nightstands and dresser are from AP Industries.  The lamps and chairs again – a Homesense find.  Most of the fabrics are from Robert Allen.  The art were current pieces the owner had, as well as the roll top desk and chair.


Now for the Master guest suite.  After a recent visit to the Savoy Hotel in London, the owner wanted a old world boutique hotel look in purple and green.  We had Joele do the wall paneling, and move some lighting around.  We had two chairs from VanGogh upholstered in a Robert Allen fabric. I designed the bed and had Surrey Upholstery make it.  It turned out beautiful – as always with Surrey Upholstery.  The night stands and dresser, again, Redford House – luv luv!!!  The chandelier:  Design Lighting.  The drapery fabric is from Maxwell fabrics.




Its important to note in this bathroom that I chose to remove part of the wall in the bathroom that enclosed the bath/shower.  I have done this numerous times in a bathroom reno.  It totally opens up the feeling of the room.  Totally worth it.  The vanity was custom made.  The hardware on the vanity is from Restoration Hardware.  I have to say, Restoration has the best hardware!!  The mirror – a Homesense STEAL!.  The lighting is from Design Lighting


And last, but not least is the main bath on the upper floor.  Unfortunately I don’t have a before picture.  Which is priceless considering the matching powder blue toilet, sink and tub!  I convinced the owner to nix the tub and put a lovely shower with body sprays. (not pictured).  The vanity is custom with Restoration Hardware.  The wallpaper is from Crown.  The lighting is Robert Abbey.  The flooring looks like wood but it is tile.  Its my favorite element of the room.  It looks like it has been cut along the end grain.  It is from Olympia.

These are some of my all time favorite rooms.  Im so grateful to have had the opportunity to design them.  Thanks to all our supplier.  My trusty workroom at New Accent Window Fashions sewed all the drapes and bedding, and did a beautiful job!
