Gray-Green Guest Suite

An art-filled stairway leads up to a guest room. Visitors are greeted by a mohair throw at the foot of the bed, walls covered in grey-green grass cloth, and a mahogany bar. Shutter windows provide an option for light or complete privacy, while two decorative, round mirrors anchor the bathroom.

SHOW TRANSCRIPT

Here we have this guess suite above the garage. You have a nice stairway leading up. And here, we have another example of how to hang art in a stariway. I have six pictures and they're hung in a grid. Three, three, and three. So a group of nine. And then, on the left, as you go up, I have this nail sculpture. You don't always have to use prints or pictures. Think of something three-dimensional to hang on the walls, too. You go upstairs to the guest suite and we have this really pretty grasscloth on the walls serving this grey green color. And this great looking pickstitch bedding is from Serena and Lily. I love it because it's reversible. It's one color on one side and one color on the other side. I chose the charcoal grey side. And then this wonderful throw at the foot of the bed which is mohair in two shades of grey, I think it's very handsome folded at the foot of the bed. Really pretty mahogany bedside table. This nice oval ottoman at the foot of the bed, which is made by Sherrill, it's big enough to sit down on. It's a great place to unpack your suitcase. I've got this beautiful little mahogany piece set up as a bar so you could have everything you need here to pour a drink. It's self-sufficient and I think necessary in a guest suite. The unusual shape of the windows called for shutters, and I think these shutters can give you complete privacy and/or light. So they're very versatile. I've got a great looking work on paper by artist Sam Still, by the bed. Ink splotch painting hanging over the bar. And I've got this Moroccan style rug from Stark, which is a little hairy and just really soft under foot up there, just to provide a little pattern and be a little unexpected. With this beautiful wrought iron drum fixture, with a parchment shade hanging in the middle of the room, which, I think, is very handsome. This bathroom has great looking floor tile from Ann Sacks. It's kind of heavily patterned, really beautiful muted colors. It makes a very strong statement. We've got this really pretty vanity that we've painted in two tones of paint and then have this very handsome hardware on it. We have two sinks in here and we hung round mirrors in between and they're in a bronze color, another good example of how you can use a decorative mirror to great effect. It doesn't really have to match up or be necessarily what you would consider a bathroom mirror to work in this space. It's just a nice comfortable guest space. It's not masculine, it's not feminine, it's just everything a guestroom should be.
