The Reveal – A Modern Guest Bedroom

One of my goals in January was to get our second bedroom mini makeover completed before the baby arrived. I didn’t know if this was possible since babies are notoriously unpredictable, but he cooperated and allowed me the time to finish this space. My initial design {which you can see here} was really simple and straightforward. Since we had painted the walls and changed the flooring with the rest of the upstairs renovation all we needed to focus on was finding some great furnishings and accessories. I wanted it to be a really inviting space, with some beautiful textures and a few punches of colour.

If you remember from when we first moved into the Ravine House, this is what the bedroom looked like initially:A gorgeous modern guest bedroom design

And now, this is our finished modern guest bedroom! A gorgeous modern guest bedroom design

The room itself is pretty tiny so a major focus is obviously the bed. I really wanted the bed frame to stand out and this one from Wayfair does just that. I absolutely love it! Plus, I think it will stand the test of time and be a great bed for Jack once he transitions out of the nursery. Seriously, this frame is not only gorgeous, it’s so sturdy!A gorgeous modern guest bedroom designA gorgeous modern guest bedroom design

As I’ve mentioned, texture played a big role in this design. I started off with some incredibly soft striped sheets, added a super cozy duvet with a linen grey cover and, for the winter months, I added a green wool throw at the foot of the bed. Plus, the pillows add even more softness. Can you really have too many?A gorgeous modern guest bedroom design

Instead of purchasing a new nightstand, I actually decided to use my Nana’s vintage sewing machine table. I think it works so well here! Because it’s slightly taller than a nightstand and is open underneath, it helps give the illusion of more space. Plus, I can actually use this area to store extra blankets, pillows, books, etc. OR just style a cute basket, right?!A gorgeous modern guest bedroom design A gorgeous modern guest bedroom design A gorgeous modern guest bedroom design

In terms of artwork, I wanted to keep the space pretty minimalistic. And because I wanted the focus to be on the bed frame itself, I decided to place my small gallery wall on the opposite wall. You can see that I brought the same green tones from the bed into the artwork. I also love that I found a place for my Anna with Love London print since we moved (I also have a different smaller photo from the same collection on the nightstand!). Fun Fact: London is my fave city 🙂A gorgeous modern guest bedroom design A gorgeous modern guest bedroom design gallery wall A gorgeous modern guest bedroom design

And finally, the last new item I grabbed for this modern guest bedroom makeover was the area rug. Initially, I struggled with this decision – did I want something that would blend in with the greens and greys or an option that really contrasted? The latter won over once I saw this one. I loved its vintage vibe, rich red hue and the small amount of black and green accents within. It really compliments the room, making it feel luxurious and warm. A gorgeous modern guest bedroom design

Now, I won’t show you the other side of the room since it’s still a messy “office” nook…for now! I plan to revisit that side later on this year. But, all in all, this room is finished, which means the ENTIRE UPSTAIRS FLOOR is complete!!!!! Happy Dance!! What do you think everyone?!
