Design Musing Guest Bedroom


The kids are all grown up and their bedrooms need a little updating.  They don’t come home as often.  However, every now and then friends and family members come to visit and I offer they stay overnight.  Does this sound familiar?  That’s exactly my situation.  In a few weeks, guest will be arriving to celebrate Easter and Passover.  Hoping to update at least one of the bedrooms before summer, I’m doing a little design musing.

Color: Light blue/rust/white sheets


Color: Grey and Yellow


Pattern mixing: I do like a balance of feminine and masculine in a guest bedroom. Barclay Butera and Ralph Lauren are two favorite brands for achieving a balance of feminine and masculine décor.



My preference is a few less pillows.  The headboard is a little too modern, maybe without the wood trim.  Call me crazy, but I have a thing about fabric tufted headboards, when I see them all I think about is dust mites.  A leather tufted headboard  would be the option for me.  (I know they are trending and every headboard I see is upholstered in fabric, it seems). Design is personal. What do you think about feminine and masculine décor in a guest bedroom?
