Decorating this new house has been quite the project. I feel like we always have a million balls in the air. From going back and forth with the designers to tracking furniture deliveries, to changing my mind about things way too often, the process is incredibly fun but a lot more work than I thought.
While some of the other rooms in the home come together (master bedroom, formal living room, dining room, family room, kitchen, my office, etc), I threw together our guest room under the radar and just realized this weekend when we had guests for the holiday, that it was actually complete with one swap of a rug. It was a tough room to work with because it’s a pretty small space, the flooring is incredibly ugly, and there is only one window (not pictured because it was so bright and we’re waiting on the shade to arrive!) which was an interesting architectural design to say the least.
I kept the room incredibly simple with a beach-house feel. I created the look of this room by starting first with this Matouk bedding which has become a guilty pleasure for me. Their bedding is so crisp and beautiful and I fell in love with this navy and white throw and expanded the look from there.
We had these lamps and nightstands from our apartment but they never really fit in with the look of our old guest room. They feel so much more in place here. With all the navy and white, I wanted the walls a softer, more natural tone, so we went with Farrow & Ball’s Cornforth White (which is actually a soft grey). To add an even more natural feel, I went with this jute rug which is as soft as it is gorgeous…something hard to find in a Sisal.
The final touches were two sail boat prints that tie in the whole nautical theme. Scroll down for all of the details of the room and enjoy these sunny photos. I can’t wait to hear what you all think of the room!

I love the Navy and pop of pink!

Love it! One quick thought would be to hang some art above the bed with the same nautical theme.
I am looking to find some sort of rope structure or hanging piece of art so it feels boat-like. Open to any recs, I love the idea!
SO CUTE, Julia! Goal is to have our guest room up and running by the summer… SUCH great inspiration! 🙂

Lovely guest room, it looks so bright and inviting!
You mention your rug is sisal, but the link goes to a jute rug. Is the link correct? I am in the market for a natural fiber rug, but want it to be soft as we have a little one is likes to play on the floor. Thank you!
You’re correct! I misspoke. The link is to the exact rug in this room and I can attest to the fact that it’s soft. We had guests over the weekend and they couldn’t believe how soft it was for jute!
Thank you so much! I enjoy reading your blog!
Absolutely gorgeous guest room! I would be honored to be able to stay here. All of the details just make it that much more special!

I love your guest room! So classic and elegant!
The lamps in Chinoiserie style are stunning; they give some eclectic feel to the room. The frame of the mirror is very unusual. I’m the firs time here and the house is beautiful.
