Project R | The Guest Bedroom


Today we have the final Project R space for you  – the guest bedroom. We hope you’ve enjoyed these room tours! This room is on the top floor of our client’s home and was the last piece of the puzzle. We pulled this room together really fast because the client’s family were coming to stay in a matter of weeks, so there was not me to waste. The results though are calming and warm, layered and full of texture. Let’s step inside.

Quick recap! We were brought in to help our client (a renovator and project manager) to help design and warm and inviting family home, layering in personality, style and cohesion throughout all the spaces. We brought in lovely warm tones on the walls, beautiful art, accessories, designed some functional furniture and generally just brought this home to life. It was a fun project and we are delighted to see the whole house feature in the February issue of vtwonen magazine. Now, let’s get into the guest room!

We goal in here was to turn this once white and empty room on the top floor into a comfortable and welcoming guest quarters. We  used Little Greene’s French Grey, choosing to highlight one wall surrounding the window in a rich, contrasting hue, Farrow and Ball’s Off Black. With time of the essence and this being a ‘bonus room’ in the house that the client didn’t want to go crazy on, we opted for more budget friendly pieces we could install quickly and painlessly, combined with some special pieces we brought in from our studio collection (art, rugs, textiles, accessories). We brought in contemporary lighting by two of our favourites Marset and Artemide, lots of warms woods, textiles aplenty (we love the graphic runner by our friends at Artha Collections), graphic monochrome artwork and layered linens and we pretty much felt like staying the night once done!
