What To Do With a Small Guest Room

28 days ago

I am trying to update this guest room in my 1994 house. It’s rather small (11x11 with an angled doorway) and really only one place to situate the bed. Obviously, the window treatment is going. In my mind, I want more color in there but when I search bedrooms, most are rather neutral so maybe staying neutral with a couple of colorful pillows is the way to go. There is an armoire in the closet. I am open to changing the bedding and wall color. I have been slowly restraining the closet doors and trim to match the main living spaces. (See attached photos) We actually call this the French room because the art in there was either purchased in Paris or New Orleans or references those cities not because we think it looks French in any way. I’d like to keep the art but could reframe and regroup it.

For right now, we are ignoring the 90’s carpet as we intend to redo the primary suite adjacent to this room which will include moving walls and my DH wants to replace the carpet with a neutral carpet which we would continue into this room. When we recently remodeled the kitchen and living room, we removed the same carpet and replaced it with LVP. Hardwood would have been our first choice but as we have in floor hot water heat that was not possible. We do not love the LVP and so do not want to carry it into the bedrooms.

We live in the Rocky Mountains. Our style for this house is transitional with a little mountain/rustic. I think. To give you an idea of our style, I have included photos of our kitchen and living room as we just finished those rooms.
