another guest room design, feeling summery

Does the season when you design affect the final mood/feel/look of the room? For me, I know it does. If I'd been putting this room together in the winter, I'm sure my choices for it would be a little deeper, heavier, cozier. But, as it's the height of summer, I am drawn to lightness all around, and decor that feels like it'd be at home in a beach house.


I just finished this plan for a teeny tiny, third floor (read: attic) guest room. I'm especially into light-colored walls and bedding to keep this cozy top-of-the-house room from feeling too claustrophobic. And I don't want to clutter it up with a lot of pattern, or furniture for that matter. Patchwork on the bed is enough, and from there, I'll bring interest in with lots of texture, but very few other furniture pieces besides an antique dresser the client already has. It's going to be a cool, relaxed, collected-feeling retreat. The client's excited to use this as her "getaway" in the house when guests aren't in it. Now let's see if we can finish the room before summer has passed us by...

Your post just reminded me of a friend from high school who had the entire third floor of her home as a bedroom. It was divided into two spaces, one decorated in warm tones for winter and the other in cool whites and blues for summer. She would switch rooms depending on the season. If only you had that option then decorating for the current weather would be a possibility.

Oooh, love! So pretty!! My favorites are those over sized glass bottles and that cool accordion fold sconce light:)

I am so curious about those wire bins on the wall. Yay for another project, Casey! I'd happily live in any room you design.

What a nice casual feel your inspiration board has - I think I saw some wire baskets like the ones at the bottom left at Homegoods recently.
