Vicki and Sloan tackle the guest suite of the Susan G Komen for the Cure Charlotte Affiliate show house.

Tone-on-Tone with a Pop of Color

Vicki and Sloan begin placing furniture and bedding into the room.

  • By using tone-on-tone furniture it makes the space appear large and the furniture looks like it is floating in the room.
  • The queen size custom upholstered headboard is a simple statement and adds a relaxing touch to the room.
  • Colorful bedding and accent pillows the perfect way to add color to a tone-on-tone room with out adding too much drama. It also leaves your options open for changing out pillows seasonally to go for a different look throughout the year.
  • Mattresses are placed on the frames.

Guest Seating

Vicki and Sloan bring a settee into the room

  • Another tone-on-tone item is added to the décor to give the room more depth. A french style sofa is placed on the opposite wall of the headboard. This sofa serves as a work of art and additional sleep space for visitors.

More Function

Vicki and Sloan add a secretary desk for supplementary storage and add another purpose to the room.

  • A single piece of furniture makes the room multi-functional as a home office and guest suite

Accessorizing

Vicki and Sloan make decisions regarding the lamps of this room.

  • A silver desk lamp is used to add a little pizzazz to the tone-on-tone décor
  • Two white contemporary lamps modernize the antique secretary desk
  • Tip: Don’t start accessorizing until your happy with the main décor of your room.
  • Colorful silk flowers and art complete the look

Planning Ahead

Furniture Consultant, Patti Long discusses with Vicki plans for the custom headboard for the master bedroom.

Guest

Sloan and Greg Greenhalgh make plans for finishing up the construction of this space. Sloan shows off the lovely features of this half-bath.

  • A round tile doesn’t chop a room up and it looks more spacious to the eye
  • By tying together metallic flecks on the countertop and metallic accessories in the bedroom the area flows more and becomes a suite
  • Keep your guest bath de-cluttered to make guests feel more welcome

Draperies Cont’d

Vicki and Andy Nance discuss the drapery issue for the Guest Room

  • It is always wise to hang draperies beneath crown molding. It is always better for your draperies to be too long rather than too short.
  • Puddling your drapes is an easy way to mask drapes that are too long and it adds a unique touch to any room.
