I'll begin the house tour of the English Colonial I home I just completed with the guest suite, a space I really love.  The crisp white, blue, and orange color palette is so bright and fresh and cheery! 

It adjoins the office with very feminine gold floral wallpaper and a fantastic orange lacquer desk, so that was my jumping off point.

Do you remember way back at the start of this project we considered a design direction for the dining room that shared this same palette?  Well we wound up going in a very different direction for the dining room, but we sort of unintentionally shifted that color combo to this part of the house!  And the orange Hermes boxes on the nightstand?  From their cobalt Hermes wedding china that was guiding us on that first mood board.

Here are a couple of "before" shots of the space to indulge everyone's voyeuristic viewing pleasure.  The first shot was taken with the previous home owner's furnishings in it, from my first walk through of the house when my clients were just purchasing it.

And this is a "during" shot...weird sofa cushion and all (we were comparing linen upholstery colors.)

This room is such an example of how far a unifying and balanced color palette really goes in pulling a space together.  Because if you break it down, there's very little else happening here!  The clients wanted to wait and collect art that was meaningful to them over time, which is why there's nothing on the walls yet.  So it was really just a matter of using color to bring it to life.

For instance, I'm loving the orange X benches at the foot of the bed!  I broke down that DIY project for you last week.

Hope you have a great holiday weekend!  It's crazy hot here in LA so it looks like we will be forced to kick back and keep it cool by the beach and pool.  Not a bad proposition at all.
Back next week with the rest of this house tour!
