This first guest bedroom that I am working on first will have a queen bed. We installed a pine board ceiling and drywall on the walls and the room had existing wood flooring. We added a lot of windows to this room to bring in light and also to highlight the view of the lake.
This room was one of the original bedrooms when we bought the house but it was much smaller....hard to believe because it is still pretty small!....and the walls were all pine boards. We made this room a little bit larger by moving one of the walls back and stealing space from what was another bedroom but has since been turned into a bathroom.
The pine ceiling is going to be whitewashed so that you can still see the grain and knots like this photo below:
There are some items that I have collected as the foundation pieces for the room:
1. A four poster pine bed I got at an auction. It came from a Nantucket estate and I liked the simple simple pine look of it.
For the lighting I am going to skip bedside lamps and we are going to have sconces hung on the wall next to the bed.
For the ceiling light I am going to do something in a dark bronze finish.
So here is the first option. For this version I selected a palm tree toile wallpaper. It's kind of a tongue-in-cheek statement.....palm trees in the Adirondacks where it is cold for a large portion of the year! I would be doing a very green palette with this design including a green gourd lamp on top of the dresser with a pleated patterned shade, simple white bedding with green banding and a piece of green and white abstract art. The existing floors are wood and I will use a black and white striped area rug.
