Bee Hive Cottage Guest Bedroom and Bath

Frances Schultz is at it again with the transformation of her gem of a house,Bee Hive Cottage. This time she is taking her awkwardly angled guest bedroom and bath from ho hum to wow. She works her magic with dark colors. She says you can paint small spaces with deep color tones. Really? Yes this will help the space lose all those shadows and the space will appear seamless, thus making it appear larger.What a great color she chose.One design element that we think is sheer genius is she used the radiator as a bed side table. She placed a piece of glass over the radiator cover then added a DIY  lamp on it. She has twin beds on either side of the bedside table.
     Now the bathroom had great bones but was blah and lacked character. Boy did she add that to the space, using bold stripes and leaving the window treatment simple... The color of the bathroom and guest bedroom work well together, giving the spaces a cohesive feel. How great is that fun window seat with the striped welt. It really is all in the details that make a room. 
    We are looking forward to the next installment of Bee Hive Cottage.

I love seeing each room of the cottage come together, and this bedroom is probably my favorite reveal yet. Fran did a really smart job with the space she had to work with!

Love both of the re-do's! I completely agree that a small space should not be left white...white is white and small is small, why not add charm to a room and one forgets the size and remembers the charm/chicness/design factor!

I used a verrry similar color in high gloss on the walls of my little kitchen here in Philadelphia. I used Caribbean Blue Water (Benjamin Moore) and I absolutely love it! Miles Redd recommended it in HB. You can see my kitchen here: http://lacqueredlife.blogspot.com/2010/02/blue-sensation.html

Gosh, Bee Cottage and I thank you all! Might add that left on the cutting room floor was my friend Tom Samet's idea to paint the built-in drawers in the hall a high gloss brown (Benjamin Moore Tudor Brown) so they look like a piece of furniture. That was genius and he gets all the credit.
