Often, the dressing area is a bland part of the room. Here, it is a feature. They are cleverly angled and curved. The light in the dressing area is accented by the curved feature near the mirror. Sitting aside a king sized bed, these dressing areas are a talking point for any guest.

6. A new twist on a twin room

Your standard twin room has the beds floating in the middle of the room with no anchor. This bed arrangement cleverly uses a square bedside table in the corner as an anchor for the twin beds.

Recalling the warm seas of Greece, the white and blue walls are cleverly reflected in the throw on the bed. The green duvet and pillows recall a coral reef while the carpet is sand coloured. Pure relaxation!

The mix of cocoa-white patterns breaks up the large open space and provides areas of relaxation. The length of the settee allows one to lay about and read all afternoon. The large windows bring in light to this double height area.

9. Gold

11. Classic four poster bed

guest room designs11

A less used bed type these days, this four poster style is accented by turned natural wood posts. The nearly golden tone is recalled in the lamps and photo frames. You can add a splash of colour to the room with a gorgeous throw.

12. Baby blue skies

Playful colours dominate this room. The bed is single and sits well near the window. Adding a long wooden bench, some coloured paintings and stools gives multiple seating areas while the striped rug is fashionably juxtaposed.

17. Utilise a beige base and accent

guest room designs17

The rug takes the eye on a journey leading to the bed. This breaks up and softens the wood floor. The pillows on the bed in caramel accent the room and keep one’s attention on the master bed. The headboard is a great feature, giving the room a vertical visual which leads up to the elegant chandelier.

18. A bold regal statement

Many guest rooms are overloaded with colours and furniture. This is a zen approach. Clear open spaces with an accented, striped throw. Understatement provides peace.

Four poster beds add strength and permanence to any room. Use similarly coloured chairs and picture frames to create the overall majesty.

21. Dual purpose

guest room designs21

A folding bed allows you to use the room as a study. Great for small apartments or micro-apartments.

guest room designs22

Striped walls can be stimulating in a room. Cool style and matching bed cover is fun. A blue and grey painted dresser sits nicely in the corner.

A wooden desk can provide an excellent working space for the business traveller. The large bed is inviting when all that work is done.

24. Integrate the bed into the wall

Integrate the bed into the wall to save space and create cupboard space around the bed. Put a throw on the floor at the end of the bed to break up the space.

A solid cherry wood headboard goes well with blue skirting. You can add your own art on the wall and match the frame with the silver lamp.

guest room designs29

A sailor’s bed with navy blue walls promotes dreams of the sea. The wainscotting in white adds to the feeling of a Mediterranean ship.

29. Chandelier

guest room designs30

Black and white is always a safe choice, but try using a patterned carpet with leafy inlays in red and cream. This adds a splash of colour to an otherwise safe design.

30. Curved head and footboards

guest room designs31

These add visual stimulus for the eye. On the headboard, the curved metal rails are silhouetted by the wall.

31. Double photosguest room designs32

In Chinese feng shui, it is good for a couple to have pairs of things in the room. These pictures, pillows and lamps are welcoming for each partner.

32. Low lying bed

guest room designs33

A bed that is closer to the ground can be very relaxing. Match the headboard with side tables, a red throw and cream carpet and the look is exotic.

33. Mirror

guest room designs34

A mirror can expand the size of a space visually. Here it is the centrepiece for the dresser. The mirrors in the dresser also help to reflect the room.

34. Accent lines

guest room designs35

Try accenting the moulding in the room. The highlight of the door frames, baseboards and ceiling. In a white room, this is clean and fresh.

35. Africa

guest room designs36

Using a theme from a particular place is visually stimulating. Here the coral, surfboard and zebra carpets remind one of the coast of South Africa.

36. Try mixing cream, chocolate and red

guest room designs37

This combination is good for using lots of different easy to find materials and colours. The bookshelf is a small but good touch in the corner. It breaks up the corner space nicely.

37. Bold green and a faux fur throw

guest room designs38

If you want to make a special space, use a bold green on the walls. Accent this with a small statue or flecks of green in the headboard. To really make it stand out, a faux fur adds luxury.

38. Multiple corners

guest room designs40

In order to deal with sharp corners, use a dresser with a lamp on it, and then put the next lamp lower down in order to break up the space.

39. Curved headboards to make the room look bigger

guest room designs41

Echoing patterns in a room can provide interest for the guest. The chandelier is recalled in the bed spread and the pillows while the checkered curtains are matched in the bottom bed cover.

41. A singular wood type

guest room designs44

You can use two major colours quite effectively. The light wood is in all the furniture and it stands out from the charcoal walls and carpet.

42. Zen

guest room designs45

The clean lines and understated styling create serenity. The light is broken up by the horizontal slats in the window.

43. Diffused light

guest room designs46

If your guest room is on the small side, you can use translucent curtains to add soft diffused light. A lamp in the corner can add yellow to this.

44. Complimenting materials

guest room designs47

Juxtapose wood with stone. You can use the duvet colours to mimic the stone and the same goes for the rug.

45. Light and shadow

guest room designs48

If you have good natural light, you can use white furniture to reflect that light into the room further, and under that furniture, the shadows will provide a natural black contrast.

46. Carpet placement

guest room designs49

Placing a carpet half under the bed provides warm space to walk but leaves the wood exposed as well. The carpet also reflects the wall without overpowering the room.

47. Squares break up space

guest room designs50

Using a large square headboard breaks up the wall space and also sets the dominant shape of the room. Lamps, pillows and the bed can contribute to this theme.

48. Pastel colours to soften the room

guest room designs51

If your room is large, pastel colours can soften the tone and add comfort. A dresser at the end of the bed can bring the space in too.

49. Silhouette

guest room designs52

A silhouetted design on a wall creates visual interest. The duvet here is of a similar though more regular pattern.

50. Two guests

guest room designs54

In a loft space, it’s possible to use light floorboards and two single beds rather than a double. As the ceiling often pushes in on the room, the side table makes good use of the space.

51. Cream

guest room designs55

Try contrasting dark wood with cream in the walls, bed and side tables. A segmented picture set will add interest to the room while you can reflect these colours with your own touch, perhaps in a plant.

52. Pastel green

guest room designs56

This is a pastel green theme in a smaller room. This gives a fairly neutral rendering of the space and makes it easy to find accessories which match. Soft white light from the windows with translucent curtains make the light easy on the eyes.

53. Two colour simplicity

guest room designs57

So that you don’t overload the room with decorations, simplify. Soft grey walls and carpets are a perfect backdrop for a wooden bed.

54. Feng Shui

57. Multiple photos

guest room designs61

In a simple room, multiple photos are useful to add interest to the room.

58. Slick lined loft conversion

guest room designs63

Lofts can look small, but these lines in the ceiling slats are painted white and lead the eye across the room. The yellow lights at the end provide the warmth.

59. Tawny theme

guest room designs64

A tawny brown footstool extends from the bed and gives a seated area which resonates with the wood in the room.

60. Paintings add life

guest room designs65

Use paintings to add colour to a neutral back drop. The furniture can converse with these colours as can the pillow in the centre which calls to all three of the paintings.

61. Light and shadow

guest room designs66

If you have good natural light, you can use white furniture to reflect that light into the room further, and under that furniture, the shadows will provide a natural black contrast.

62. Patterned bed cover

guest room designs67

The patterns of a bed are important, here they are in muted tones with a Greek like swirl. This creates movement whilst the room is fairly serene. The rice lamps provide a soft, stable yellow light.

63. Multiple fabrics

guest room designs69

If you use multiple natural material bed covers and throws, you can layer them to create comfort and visual interest. Here the bed is the focus of the room and the bare wood floors complete the natural look.

64. Wooden walls

guest room designs70

Try using wooden walls to create a sauna like feeling. This adds warmth and nature. Yellow lighting will soften the look even more.

65. Soft white fabrics

guest room designs72

If you colour one wall, you can compliment it by putting a throw at the end of the bed. Add a white fabric to a chandelier and mimic this in the bed.

66. Bold letters

guest room designs73

A bold statement of your own creation like ‘Be my guest’ adds character to a guest room. The shelf can also be used to put plants or photos.

67. Rectangular order

guest room designs74

Rectangle or square themes scattered throughout the room. The picture frames and the footboard, and to a certain extent the pillows, create this structured look.

68. Your creation

guest room designs76

If you are creative, you can have a go at making your own message on a canvas for guests. This bed is great for a guest room as you can store necessities like bedsheets under the bed.

69. L-shaped sofa

guest room designs77

An L-shaped sofa can provide extra seating for guests while making a centre piece for the room. Setting the grey theme, accent with comic prints.

70. Blue accent and wood for grounding

guest room designs78

In a tall loft space, you have room to hang a lamp while grounding the room with a strong wooden bed frame and sea-like blue carpet and sheets.

71. Brighten a small room

guest room designs79

In a small room, small, well-placed objects can provide a distraction and comfort. Tuck the bed in the corner and use a statue in the window-sill.

72. Lamp placement

guest room designs80

Give the room variable light settings by using two lamps and one chandelier. A mirror can be a centre-piece.
