Guest Bedroom Ideas

I've been brainstorming about our guest bedroom lately and trying to figure out the direction I want to go with this room.  Most of our home is pretty classic & traditional, with a few modern touches...SO, I want the guest room to be totally outside my comfort zone.  I still want it to be classy, but much more bold than I would probably choose for the rest of our home.  I guess you could say it will be the room where I take some design risks.  I have been really inspired by the dramatic fabric headboards I have been seeing, would love to create one to be the focal piece when you walk in the room.  The image below is one of my absolute favorites...the shape and Otomi fabric is pretty amazing!

I am leaning towards dramatic navy walls, and this color is beautiful.

Farrow & Ball ~ Hauge Blue

As for the headboard, here are my top fabric selections.  I plan to create the headboard with my husband,  using a similar style to the headboard above.  Option 1 below is my favorite choice right now, but I've included some other top contenders below.

Option 1

Option 2

Option 3

Option 4

Option 5

Option 6

Option 7

I would love to hear what you think!  Do you all have any rooms in your home where you have gone outside of your design comfort zone??  Can't wait to keep you posted on this.

I have some girlfriends coming over today to help me finish painting stripes in our hallway.  Will share that as soon as I get it all done...but I have to say...so far, it is looking awesome!  

Happy Wednesday!
