Our guest room has been evolving for some time now, and will most likely continue to do so. With recently installed carpeting and a painted accent wall, things have started to fall into place stylistically. It all began with West Elm's Stella bed, which I selected in effort to tie it in with other brass accents throughout our home. Soon after buying the bed, I came across a mid-century dresser with black trim and gold hardware that fit perfectly under the only window in the space. Next, I had the the wall behind the bed painted black to show off the headboard's elegant brass spindles. The rug, from Diablo Flooring, runs through the adjacent office into the guest room, thus making both spaces feel larger and more cohesive. Tulip shaped side tables flank the bed as do two large swing arm sconces. Textiles sourced from the Alameda Flea market decorate the bed and accent the guest room chair (a curbside find). The space has a definite "feel" to it now. It's very much a Cocoon Home look comprised of our signature layered neutrals, mixed patterns and the ever-so-present botanicals. Take a look:
Due to the fact that our office abuts the guest room, I use the dresser to store fabric and wallpaper samples for my design work.
Proudly, this corner is decorated with all repurposed items. The prints above the chair are from a garage sale (that we stopped at on the way to a DC wedding almost 15 years ago). The chair and the rattan ottoman were found curbside [YAY] and the textiles bought at the Alameda Flea Market. The plant was previously owned and the pot is from a consignment shop. I love a room with a mix of old and new elements. It often tells an interesting story.
Originally intended as a master bedroom suite with an attached bath, a fireplace and lots of closet space, Alex and I decided to use this space for visiting friends and family instead. Eventually, we may move into it, but for now I'm happy to see our guests enjoy this space.
Anyone up for a visit??
