The Old World-inspired exterior of this Bel Air guest home is pleasantly hidden beneath lots of lush greenery, making this space feel private and intimate. A clock on the stone wall gives it that French country feel.
The guest house of this waterfront property in Innisfil, ON, Canada matches the interior design of the main home. The two kitchens both feature an oversized white quartzite island and subway tile backsplash.
The homeowners wanted to keep the guest house and main house spaces visually connected, but they liked the idea of keeping both spaces private, so designers added a small wall made of stucco to complement the design of both homes. Then, they lined the crushed limestone walkway with desert plants to create a connected, elegant design for both houses.
The homeowners wanted an elegant foyer that makes a statement upon entering the home, so designers created a space with bold statement pieces and a calm color palette for a welcoming and comfortable feel for all guests.
When designing this guest home, the owner's hoped to complement the main beach house while still maintaining a sense of privacy for both homes. This beautiful guest home shares an intimate walkway and garden with the main house but has it's own outdoor patio and lush green lawn.
When working with small spaces, maximize the potential with rooms that serve dual purposes. "Squeeze the most out of any space with multi-functional furniture," says Brittni Mehloff of Paper + Stitch. For instance, a home office can also be your guest room with the right pieces: a bookshelf that doubles as a desk and a sleeper sofa that meets the needs of your work time and overnight guests.
A tiny guest cottage nestled behind this historic Savannah home stands ready to welcome visitors. The cottage has a red roof that matches the main home, with both structures nestled in the shade of a large tree.
When the home office isn't in use, this room serves as a cozy guest bedroom. A sculptural, burnt orange accent wall adds visual interest to the windowless room. Books, pillows and paintings make it feel homey and inviting.
The home was originally built in 1921, but extensive renovations has brought the space up to date for modern times while maintaining the home's historic character. The estate includes a three-story main residence and a charming carriage-turned-guest house.
