Your room has such great potential to be a great guest room. With our tips and recommendations we will help you to transform your space to be a relaxing get-away for any guest and office space.
When it comes to any room, the key to remember is the 60-30-10 rule. 60% of a dominant color, 30% of a secondary color, and 10% of an accent color. This translates into a room as 60% - wall color, 30% - upholsteries, and 10% - accessories. Right now your space is missing that “put-together” feel; you can achieve that feeling from having a well defined accent color. The idea is to sprinkle that color throughout your space by using art and accessories. This moves the eye from point to point in the room - allowing the viewer to enjoy each of your room’s furnishings. You already have a lot of blue tones in the room so introducing coordinating colors to complement the blue will bring the room together.
I recommend pulling out the tan color from your bedding and introduce it in upholsteries. As far as your accent color, I selected to use a warm orange. I chose to use complementary colors over analogous because complementary pairs are calming and soothing which is exactly what you want for a guest room - relaxing and peaceful.
Your comforter has great pattern so, I’ve selected a solid drapery. I chose a tan color to complement the tan in your bedspread and because they are a neutral if you switch out your bedspread for something else, than you don’t have to worry about the drapes not coordinating. By introducing drapes into your space they make a room feel complete. These are lined for privacy. you could add a bamboo shade underneath for more richness. Remember that, drapes should be hung so that they reach 1” from the floor and the rod should be installed 2 to 4” above the window frame.
You mentioned that you would like another bedspread to switch out once and awhile, I’ve selected something in the same colors as your current bedspread, but this one has a great geometric pattern. It provides the same color scheme so it will match the room, but gives it a different look with the geometric pattern. This will let you transform your room with a simple swap of comforters ☺
