A Contemporary Guest Room

Pin It!
I'm currently working for a client
whose favorite design style is contemporary.

We just finished the guest bedroom.
{I say "we" because any room I decorate is a 
collaborative effort with the homeowner.}

I love the way it turned out because it reminds me
of a classy & comfy room at a nice hotel.

 Isn't this a beautiful bed?  We found it on Overstock.
We chose bedding {from Kohl's} which is very tailored
because my client likes clean lines.

A challenge with using a contemporary design is that
it can have a tendency to feel cold.
One way to warm it up is to use texture
for instance, these pretty lamps {also from Kohl's}.
Or this fluffy throw . . .
{By the way, I try to always put a small chair in a guest room
where one can sit to put on their shoes, lay clothes on, etc.}
I always recommend a "jumping off place"
when designing a room.
For this project, we began with two contemporary canvases
my client already had & built a room around them . . . 


  1. I too, love a contemporary feel... so I am CRAZY about this room. Oh those pops of red just SING! You're awesome. Really good reminder about Kohls, too. I always forget about that place.

    1. Thanks so much Jules. You always make my day!

      Warmly, Michelle

  2. Very nice~ I love it!!! I wish I knew my decorating style~ I guess eclectic works! :)

    1. Great to hear from you Valerie. Most of us do have more of an eclectic style - which is great! It has a tendency to feel homey.

      Warmly, Michelle

  3. GORGEOUS! Please come design my house! You have such a good eye for textures and colors and making everything look straight from a gosh dang magazine!!! Nice work :)

    1. Cute Blondie, So nice to hear from you. I've been thinking about you & how I need to pop over to see what you've been up to. I love EVERYTHING you do, so imagine how flattered I am by your sweet compliment.

      Warmly, Michelle
