Guest Room Challenge

Converting my husbands old home office into a guest room was a challenge. First, the space is tight, measuring roughly 10X12 with octagon shaped angles at one end of the room,( which actually reduces the rooms overall square footage) making furniture placement difficult. The space also had dark navy wood trim accents and oak wood panels on the wall. I color washed the walls with a 2 to 1 mixture of Behr Creamy Mushroom paint and water. I placed a wrought iron bed into the space where the headboard gives the feeling of openness and transparency. Other touches such as a small nightstand, garment hooks and and old trunk complete the space. It's tight but cozy! For a closer look visit
