Two guest bedrooms with ensuite baths anchor each end of the upstairs, almost as mirror images of one another. Both spaces feel tucked away to allow plenty of privacy for overnight visitors. To enhance the comfort factor, the designers added layers to the bedding. “It’s another way to bring in texture and interest in a neutral space,” says Phoebe. She also emphasizes the need to give a lot of thought to the rug. “It’s the foundation of the room,” she says.
“The rug should be soft underfoot and sized just right so that you still see some of the beautiful hardwoods.” A pair of bedside tables offers convenient drawer storage along with open space underneath, perfect for housing baskets or even a small piece of luggage. “One of my favorite things in the room is the pair of pendants flanking the bed,” Phoebe says. “These offer a unique way to provide lighting without taking up space on the bedside tables. They work perfectly when you are short on space.” A cabinet across from the bed offers additional storage for extended stays.
