First we'll start out with our wall color. We'll go with a fresh light blue green to set the tone for the rest of the room. Sherwin Williams SW6756 Crystal Clear is our color of choice.
Next we will bring in our bed. In Jamaica, we love dark stained woods like mahogany and heavily carved, traditional pieces. I decided to take a more casual approach to our bed to keep the room more relaxed. This mahogany bed is from Noir Trading. The black hand rubbed finish gives it the casual feel we are looking for, and the carving, though not traditional, gives it a global, worldly feel and the four poster evokes a bit of romance.
For our bedding, we have chosen simple but luxurious egyptian cotton linen from Eastern Accents. We will add a few decorative shams and pillows to add a bit of interest.
The chairs are a classic wing back style with contemporary lines, done in a beautiful meadow green, knobby linen fabric from Kast Fabrics. We'll also add a pillow to each chair made from the patterned fabric from our bedding shams.
- Include a small coffee maker, mugs and coffee condiments in a hidden area in the room. This area can be incorporated in a cabinet or dresser or a niche built into a wall or hallway.
- Always have extra toiletries like soaps, toothpaste, deodorant, and toothbrushes etc handy in case your guest forgot to bring theirs. Arrange them in beautiful baskets or upholstered boxes to complemet the room.
- Aways have extra towels and bath robes on hand
- A notepad and pen or pencil is great to have on hand
- An alarm clock
Hope you are inspired to create and decorate the home of your dreams
