Our Guest Bedroom (Before & After)!

March 20th, 2012 by Demystifying Design

Pattern Aplenty!

Weenie strikes a winsome pose in our guest bedroom "after" with its patterns-upon-patterns and gobs of wallpaper. The room is always evolving, so much of this furniture has already moved on to other spaces and places. The coral-hued table to the left of the bed, for example, will be available for purchased at our May 8 One Kings Lane sale.

Gang:

I hope your week is going along swimmingly… We have Lykke Li on the sound system at our Chester Court offices, and Jasper and Weenie are rocking out.

I was digging through some “before” and “after” photographs of Chester Court this morning, and I thought it would be fun to revisit what our guest bedroom looked like “before” and “after” the Madcap Cottage boys had their way with the space.

The “before”s and “after”s are quite dramatic! Let us know what you think!


 

Roome & Bored!

Here's the very boring guest bedroom before we tackled the space. This room was calling out for color and verve, and we answered the clarion call. And how!

Banish the Beige!

Another angle of the guest bedroom "before." Snooze, n'est-ce pas?

Whimsical Wonderland!

Guests love to check into Chester Court... Our guest bedroom is super-inviting and comfortable. And, yes, there's lots to look at it! I am especially partial to the necklaces that we picked up in India and draped over the lampshade next to the bed.

    You know that scene in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory when they enter the fantasy room of everything edible (before Augustas Gloop wrecks it by drinking out of the chocolate river)? Your home reminds me of that room. :-D

    Love seeing the “befores” on your guest room! What a boring shoebox it was. All of your colorful furnishings make the room look bigger (paradoxically, because it’s jam-packed) and, obviously, very cozy and inviting.

    How do you guys hang pictures? From the age of your house I’m assuming the walls are plaster. Our house is of a similar age with plaster walls; my husband insists on using anchors, in drilled hole, and screws for everything but I seem to recall as a kid that my family successfully hung pictures with conventional picture hooks (first applying a piece of tape to minimize cracking before nailing). I guess this question applies to walls that aren’t papered — wallpaper may aid in maintaining the integrity of the plaster when it is drilled or nailed?

    Hope to see more “befores” of your other rooms.

  6. Love that wallpaper! Is it English?

    Where can I get that plant fabric?

  8. Demystifying Design says:

    The plant fabric is from Josef Frank, an Austrian-born designer. His fabrics can be purchased through Stockholm’s Svenskt Tenn, http://www.svenskttenn.se/.
