A friend of mine just re-did her guest room and I just love it. The color is fantastic, one of my favorites Palladian Blue by Benjamin Moore. The bed is one she slept in growing up, and the linens have been collected over time. The white coverlet is a vintage from her great grandmother, the floral coverlet is from her grandmother, and the striped shams and bed skirt are more modern and she got them from her mom's house when they downsized. I love the salon style collection of paintings to the left of the bed, and the antique bench on the other side of the room.
I am now a stay at home mom but in my former life I was a French teacher--I have my B.A., M.A., and A.B.D. (next step to Ph.D. in French literature). I love teaching and miss it but in the meantime I am enjoying operating a part-time home organizing and design business. Contact me for more info if you are interested!
