Design Showcase: Paisley Guestroom

After a little hiatus, I'm back with another design showcase!  This time, it's for Tammy's guest bedroom.   For me, guest bedrooms are like a blank can really do anything your heart desires in there, especially if you want to add some feminine touches {no husband to try to compromise with!}.  Here's a little more from Tammy:

We recently moved into a new home and I have a guest room that is needing a major overhaul. This bedroom has a big pretty window looking out the front of our house, it's own full closet and full bathroom for guests, so I want it to be inviting. There is a queen size bed that stays, the remaining furniture is pretty ugly (husband's bachelor pad days set) and I'll probably be Craigslisting it soon. 

I can get you room dimensions if you'd like. I'm attaching some pictures. The headboard is new from Target and is very blah, but I'd like to work with it. I'm open to painting/light fixture change/pretty much anything! Budget-wise, I guess depending on furniture (because I know that will increase it fast!), I'd like to stay around $1,000. 

I like these two duvet covers from PB (apparently I have a thing for Paisley?), but have no idea where to go with them. I'm definitely open to other ideas too! It might be fun to do something more contemporary/bold...

See what I mean?  Blank canvas!  Knowing she wanted to incorporate the paisley duvet, I built a room around that.

I love mixing more traditional elements with some modern elements to keep a space fun and exciting.  This contemporary rug adds just the right balance and the stripes keep the space filling young.  I am also loving that beach art...isn't it beautiful?

I definitely got some ideas for my own bedroom...loving the blues {no surprise there!}.  Thanks to Tammy for letting me take a spin on your room!

  1. I love it! We have a very similar headboard that I love and I've been looking for ways to bring more color / depth into our room. Decor is not my strong suit though, so thanks for the ideas!!

  2. Love your plans! The bench is perfect!

  3. I've had the Sienna paisley duvet for over two years now and I still love it! It's such a great duvet and pairs awesome with the PB organic blue sheet set. Love the addition of the curtains and I am totally checking out that Target headboard!

  4. Oh, how I love that duvet from PB. Great collection!

  5. Looks really great Natasha! I love those striped drapes with her paisley duvet. The rug adds a touch of whimsy to the room. Nice job!

  6. You have got such a talent for this girl!! Love the room board you put together!
