Guest Bedroom Sources

October 10, 2022

This guest bedroom is the peace that my soul needed after almost a year of utter chaos while we renovated our primary bathroom and had the house rewired. We simplified the design and only put back in what was necessary – leaving this room calm and serene.

Guest Bedroom Sources

The guest bedroom (walls, trim, and ceiling) is painted Greek Villa by Sherwin Williams. The window and door trim are painted in my favorite color – Accessible Beige by Sherwin Williams. We had both paints color matched by Behr (flat).

Wall Treatment and Trim Sources

We started with torn-up plaster walls that we originally planned to repair ourselves, but after months of renovating our primary bathroom, we decided to give this guest bedroom a “quick” facelift.

We love the character of homes built in the 1920s, so we opted for full-length beadboard on the walls. Our ceilings are 9 feet tall, and the beadboard is only 8 feet tall. The solution was to create our own chunky baseboards and crown as suggested by Jenny Komenda. We used crown blocks (similar to these) to eliminate tricky cuts (and add in more character).

Bed and Bedding Sources

This was the perfect rattan headboard for this space, but it’s often unavailable, so I made a round-up of other headboard options. We paired it with this metal platform bed frame concealed with a bed skirt, this foam mattress, and these pillows that we use on our own bed.

The bedding was easy. I wanted the bedroom to feel light and airy, so I just used a basic white duvet set with the coziest white sheets. You can’t go wrong with white bedding.

Throw pillows are easy ways to bring in more texture, but often don’t stay in stock long. Mine aren’t sold anymore, so here are some alternate pillows that are neutral and classy.

Everyone sleeps at different temperatures, so having an extra blanket in a guest room isn’t just for decor!

Lighting Sources

We live in Tulsa, Oklahoma, so ceiling fans are pretty necessary, but they don’t have to be an eyesore. This was the perfect choice for the guest bedroom – it’s modern but still fits the feel of the room. We placed matching lamps on the bedside tables (similar).

Other Guest Bedroom Sources

I duplicated my cute little tea towel curtains, rod, and rings that I used in the primary bathroom. As guests may want to sleep in, I added these light-filtering roller shades.

This jute rug is a great neutral item that made the room feel cohesive without trying to be a star. On the other side of the room, I hung one giant picture frame with a little bench (similar) below.

The End

That’s it for the guest bedroom sources! My goal was to keep this room very simple and add texture instead of colors. It’s easy to switch things out if I choose, but as I’m not really big on seasonal decor, I love how this room will always be the perfect spot for guests to rest.
