A great guest room should be flexible – suitable for singles or couples, kids and adults – which is what makes this room from Better Homes & Gardens perfect. The color palette is mostly neutral, but the pops of red scream country fun.
Let’s look at the ingredients to make a welcoming guest room like this.
The first two elements are what provide flexibility: twin beds can be pushed together to form a king, but the red chair as the bedside table is key. With a larger piece of furniture in between, guests would feel it’s a burden on the host for the beds to be moved.
For the walls, my preference is for a gallery approach with groupings of similar images rather than a collection. Six vintage beetle prints (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6) in a row over the bed may inspire your guests to do some amateur entomology.
The finishing touch is a stack of vintage red books for some bedside reading.
