After: Guest Room
Two twin beds are more versatile than a Queen.
Michael chose a warm shade of yellow for the second floor guest room. He found these beds at a Toronto thrift store for a cool $125 each, then painted them black for contrast against the custard walls. The wicker trunks were only $70 each — perfect for storing extra bedding and for guests to set their luggage on. And he swapped the teal drapes for raw linen ones that wouldn't compete with the floral shams and plaid rug. In this room, he tried to balance everything that's cute and pretty with pieces that are more sober and humble.
