The Mood

Mood Board for Guest Room.


To maximise storage, both eaves were made in to useful cupboard spaces. The large cupboard on the back wall has been disguised by a feature wallpaper (shown in photo below) and the other eaves is a custom built mini oak wardrobe with 4 deep drawers . The upholstered ottoman bed lifts up easily for lots of extra storage.

The Result

A feature wallpaper from Cole and Son (Gondola range) was chosen as it complimented the clients existing artwork that sits above the headboard. The bold pattern disguises the eaves cupboard. The wooden screen (which I found at the tip) was cleaned up and sits nicely in the corner and adds an interesting touch.

We chose a light natural sisal flooring instead of carpet. An off-white paint has been used on the ceiling to give contrast to the wallpaper and to create maximum lighting to the vaulted ceiling. A soft blue-grey paint from Little Greene has been used on the remaining walls.

The upholstered headboard, blinds and lighting are all black helping to connect each area of the room. The bedding has a soft and sumptuous feeling and brings that little bit of luxury that was much desired.

I upcycled/upholstered a Lloyd Loom laundry basket, which has been used as a seat. An oak floating shelf and a lovely second hand ornate gilt mirror complete the miniature vanity area.
