Shabby chic and serene is the theme of this guest bedroom with its white plank wall, star-shaped wall art and ruffled bed. The black and crystal chandelier and pops of robin's egg blue in the bedding and end lamp add a subdued element of glamour to the space.
This sunny guest bedroom is painted with cream tones, which harmonize with the pink and pastel green florals used throughout the room. The twin beds have padded headboards upholstered in a floral pattern that matches the bed skirts and shams. Floral prints on the wall complete the look.
Playful details abound - undulant baluster collars interject a sense of movement and rhythm to the stairs. Victorian, square section columns supporting the lantern transform to octagons with a wink to the Roman Doric Order.
All of the trim, brackets, balusters and columns were custom designed and then fabricated by millwork craftsman.
This completely custom guest cottage was built in only eight months time.

The mosaic tile was found on a trip to Morocco and imported back home.
Alternating courses of brick and stone at the foundation initiate a theme of layering and wrapping the building envelope that continues up through the terrace and chimney. This detail is carried further through variation in clapboard siding and culminates in the colors and patterns of the slate roof crowned by ridge-cresting.
The field stone was all found on site.
A set of twin beds in this cottage-style guest bedroom offer visitors more options than a full or queen model. Cornice boards upholstered in blue gingham are mounted above each bed and lined with a sheer drape that lends an ethereal, cloud-like feeling to the space. Quilts on the bed reflect the home's North Carolina heritage.
