I don’t know about you, but one of the trickiest things I have found is how to furnish a spare bedroom. It has many challenges. Firstly, I would like to make sure it is neutral – you never know which gender is coming to stay and what their personal preferences are. Also, I would like to make sure that it is calm, yet warm and inviting. A place where our guest – or guests – can relax and feel at home, especially if they have had a long journey.
Our spare bedroom tends to remain untouched for a majority of the time – apart from the fact that it houses the iron, ironing board and the place we hang our washing (of course, that all gets removed when our visitors arrive!). With the fact that it is not used that much, I do not want to over furnish it but I would like to ensure that all the essentials are there in order to make sure that our visitors are comfortable.
Furniture Village offer up a great range of furnishings which place a great finishing touch on any room. I have been through and picked just some of my favourite pieces which I would like to equip our spare bedroom with. The colour scheme is already dark brown and beige so I kept with this theme.
As you can see I have gone for some earthy tones. I love the calming water colours of the picture of the Grand Canal in Venice and the Parisienne clock picks the tones out well. The mirror is not only in keeping with the colours but it has a useful shelf and the alcove shelving looks so useful and interesting.
The Tuscan Sunrise picture not only compliments the one I have already chosen but it adds a splash of colour with the red and I have picked this out with the cushion. The rug and the floor lamp continue with the theme and I really loved the natural nature of the driftwood table lamp.
I believe that the colours I have chosen are calming and relaxing. The perfect place for any visitor – I think I might swap rooms!
