Our guest room was one of the first rooms we tackled after moving in. Not much has changed since finishing it.
While I like the room on its own, now that we’ve worked on more of the house, it doesn’t exactly flow with the rest of the house.
Fortunately, it’s nothing a can of paint, a few yards of fabric, and a little rearranging can’t fix. For the walls, I’m really feeling an olive-green, to cozy up the room.
After painting the main bath vanity Tate Olive, I started thinking about making similar changes to the guest room.
Using leftover paint, I made a sample board on a scrap of foam core.
On the other hand, it could be warm and enveloping. The wall of white bookshelves brightens up the room, too. When paired with a linen upholstered headboard, the natural tones would be perfectly earthy.
If Tate Olive is too dark, I found Thicket, a lighter, still similar color. After paint, the other side, opposite the bed, will get a little change. I still love the art and arrangement, but I’d like to repaint the dresser top.
Perhaps new curtain panels, too. The rolled shade is easy to close, but annoying to roll up to open. How do you feel about dark colors in small spaces?
