British colonialism

For the complete renovation of a home on Hanover Street, Blaine McDermott of MCD was tasked with breathing new life into existing pieces to create an eclectic aesthetic rooted in British Colonial style. Existing accent pillows served as a starting point for pops of color from the custom headboard in a Schumacher fabric to the bamboo lamps in Smoked Paprika and Indonesian artwork.

Dual mandate

Balancing the needs of the guest room and her client’s college-age son, designer Lizzie Cox sought to create a space that was both masculine and comfortable. She built an upholstered headboard for the existing bed and layered antiques and a dresser from 1stDibs that brought dimension to the room. The bold wallpaper of blue and green tones creates a light-filled and warm room for guests.

Suitable for all ages

This guest room at Mooreland Farms, called the Cousins ​​Bedroom, was designed with grandchildren in mind but is suitable for adults. Designer Suellen Gregory eschewed juvenile patterns for a basic palette of red and blue with accents of yellow and green. Peter Fasano’s paint-sprayed wallpaper has a youthful yet classic feel. Luggage racks, glass-topped tables, and washable, wrinkle-free linens make it easy to welcome guests.

Marine feelings

Designer Anne Pulliam put family first in the guest room of her parents’ Virginia Beach apartment. Pulliam started with her own childhood beds and added nautical touches without being too beachy. Red comforters add a fun boho layer, while candlesticks are a practical touch for bedtime reading. A wooden mirror wrapped in rattan adds another natural element to the space.

Vintage inspiration

Ana León, a former tango teacher from Haus of León, has spent years touring and staying in guest rooms. “Surfaces and storage space are very important,” she says. In her guest room, Lyon incorporated an antique desk from her late grandmother. An antique spindle bed brings girlish whimsy that inspired the room’s decor while a faux concrete arch and wall-mounted sconce provide grounding and softness.

5 star style

When Cherelle Armistead of Luxe Life Interiors set out to design her Airbnb near White Oak Village, she wanted to recreate the clean, inviting feel of a contemporary luxury hotel. A pair of black canopy double beds serve as a bold focal point, complemented by a geometric area rug. Guests are greeted with a personal note from Armistead containing cozy details about the home, while her specially designed “magical scent” creates a cozy ambiance.
