Contrasting Guest Bedroom

Give a guest room a hotel-chic vibe with a restricted colour palette.

Plush elements like a padded headboard and stacks of pillows keep this room from feeling austere. The extra tall faux-suede headboard softens the room visually and acoustically. Simple bedside tables provide storage and a spot for illumination.
