The space-saving Murphy bed is the perfect piece for the homeowner's guest room and sewing room. Built-in nightstands, floating shelves and upper cabinets boast storage space without taking up much floorspace. An abstract painting is a surprising addition above the fold-down bed.
This functional but colorful guest bedroom can manage several overnight guests or a small family with ease. The room features two daybeds placed side by side, each upholstered in simple, solid blue fabric, and two double beds with plaid bedding. Designer Susan Brunstrum painted the walls a sunny yellow color for a fresh look.
A pink bench and pillows lend a playful, modern touch to this rustic guest bedroom. Textured walls, earthy-colored window treatments and an exposed wooden beam along the ceiling add warmth to the space.
This nautical-themed guest suite is tucked into a turret, its walls painted a sunny yellow. The ruched headboard and curtains are in an Old World Weavers toile. Raffia shades top a pair of simple floor lamps, while an antique sailing ship diorama above the window continues the theme of the sea.
With rich colors of blue and red complimenting this tan bedspread, this DIY project becomes a stand out feature. Four basic pillows hung on a curtain rod make a custom headboard with matching color accents and give added dimension to this room.
