It’s always fun as a designer to complete someone’s guest house. Typically, the client is more willing to experiment with more exciting trends and play with colors and patterns. This was exactly the case for this project in Corinth, Mississippi. The client already has GREAT taste and her home is stunning. She and her husband were looking to create a living space over their new garage. She had already painted her ship lap walls and installed the cabinetry in her white kitchen. It was quite literally a blank canvas with plenty of natural light. Talk about a great start?! Her bathroom was so much fun and really kick started the design inspiration. The bathroom had a bold blue patterned tile with penny rounds in the shower. And we can’t forget about the statement vanity with blue cabinets. Blue is a fave here at Blairhaus!
Taking all these factors into consideration, we knew that we loved the neutral palette but wanted to accent with fun patterns and the color blue. Beyond the simple aesthetic points, we needed to know the function of this space. While it is a guest area, our client knew her husband would be using it as his game area. A great place to cook for company and watch the game on their large flat screen. Therefore, we needed furniture that would accommodate multiple people and still be stylish AND comfortable. Norwalk is our go to for ultimate comfort and style. You can completely customize with this company as well. With the client’s desires, like firmness, style, and arrangement, the Imagine That sectional was selected for customization. This created a larger sectional than the standard you typically see. A performance fabric was selected for the upholstery and paired with a navy blue welt for that perfect pop. Then, all the fun pillows could be added for texture, boldness, and just pure fun!
The bed. Oh, the bed. Noir Furniture had the perfect poster bed to make such a statement in this open floor plan. The black and gold task lights already helped us tie in this bed. Soft coastal blues with watercolor in our bedding from Pine Cone Hill and a linen duvet to accent. The Laura Park lumbar pillow added a custom touch to the bedding. Wood accents were incorporated for warmth, such as the molten coffee table, nightstands, and end tables.
For the perfect coastal touch, the Siesta Swivel from Universal allowed us to create a cozy sitting nook to read by the windows or have a private conversation while others are watching the big game! We can’t forget about the bar stools either! What a great combination of modern, fun, and coastal all in one piece of furniture. Collectively, we needed all the items to play off of one another with such an open space. While the ship lap walls are beautiful, we didn’t want the space to seem cold or sterile so we needed bold pieces to mix it up. In the end, we had a great space with plenty of patterns, color, and such style. It is definitely one of our favorite projects!
