Project Hicks // Guest Bedrooms

We are smitten with these two guest bedrooms for Project Hicks. Check it out…

In Guest Bedroom #1 we are totally inspired by the “non headboard” headboard. We are using a kilim rug and hanging it on the wall instead of a traditional headboard. Eeeek. Yes. Good idea, right? It will add great texture and color to the space. We are painting the room a beautiful gray probably Timber Wolf by Ben Moore and we are adding in my favorite guest bedroom sheets from Restoration Hardware. The white frette linens will add such a crisp hotel-like feel to the space. The metal pendant light is cool and has a great shape. The simple chairs will be placed at the foot of the bed with a table in between and a leather pouf for resting the visiting guests weary legs. We will bring it all back home with a kilim throw pillow. The reclaimed wood nightstands are clean lined and add a masculine vibe to the space. This room will feel worldly. Less put together – more gathered.
In Guest Bedroom #2 we lead with the color navy.  A classic space that’s bigger than GB#1, this room will carry navy on a focal wall as you enter. We bring in a carved wooden mirror to hang above the bed and add reflection to the space. Velvet chairs will be very conversationally placed on each side of the bed. We tied the room together with navy trimmed frette sheets (not like copying the other room, just connecting them – don’t get jealous GB#1). A soft woven rug is placed underfoot and has a beautiful look and feel. In both rooms I’ve used woven shades for the windows. No need for more here.
I know. I know. I’m like I WANT THESE GUEST BEDROOMS FOR MY HOUSE! But it’s all good. This client entertains a lot during football season and it’s a gorgeous house so it’s totally worth it. These rooms will be enjoyed. So you’re welcome future guests, in advance. Leave it as pretty as you find it.
