Decorating Your Guest’s Bedroom Using White Bedroom Furniture

The perfect way to brighten a guest bedroom, white bedroom furniture, comes in a great number of furniture layouts. Depending on the guests’ ages, bedrooms featuring white furniture can function as both adult and children’s sleeping areas. Many people may choose to furnish a guests bedroom suitable for both adults and children, while others may tailor the bedroom’s theme to some specific guest occupant. This second option is fantastic for hosting parents, in-laws or if sharing custody of the child, getting the guest bedroom designed for a girl or boy.

Actually, probably the most popular colors for girl’s bedroom furniture is really a basic white bed accented by colorful flowers. Younger girls might even be interested in white bedroom furniture with decorated little princess designs or bed headboards shaped in princess-themed crowns and/or castles. Boys will enjoy white furniture accented having a sports’ theme. White headboards, featuring a variety of painted baseball, basketball and soccer balls, are often coupled with a table dresser featuring sport-themed drawer pulls.

If while using guest bedroom to have an adult child or parent’s guest bedroom, well-liked bedroom furniture collections incorporate using wicker, rattan and/or surefire. With respect to the bedroom’s theme, white bedroom furniture for a Cape Cod or seaside-themed bedroom may consist of wicker or rattan choices, while a Victorian-themed bedroom may demand using white, cast iron beds and solid wood night stands.

While some individuals may shy away from buying all-white furniture models, you will find simple ways people can dress-up plain, white furniture items. One of the least difficult items to focus on is a bed. Because there are a variety of comforter and duvet sets obtainable, selecting a colorful one with white accents, provides the bed a focus while helping tie-in the white headboard to the white-accented comforter.

Another easy furniture fix involves chests, dressers and other bedroom furniture items using handles or drawer pulls. In case your room is decorated, utilizing a particular decorating theme, try to look for hardware that coordinates with your chosen theme. Dresser pulls, chest hardware and other items can have outside hardware changed to subtly strengthen the room’s decorating theme. On top, scarves, runners and cloths can be put about the furniture to safeguard it, as well as aid tie-in the room’s design.

Checkerboard Decorating: How to “Jump” Your Furniture From Place to Place

My husband and I have moved so many times we can hardly count them. These moves prompted me to come up with Checkerboard Decorating. What is it? Checkerboard Decorating is a plan that allows you to coordinate furnishings and, at the same time, move them from place to place.

I came up with the idea during my husband’s Air Force days. For a time we moved every year. I would finish decorating the last room of our quarters and the moving van would pull up in front of our house. That didn’t stop me from hanging a picture to see how it looked. Moving so much taught me a lot about decorating.

1. HAVE A THEME. We couldn’t afford new furniture when we first married, so we bought things at thrift stores and antique shops. Our purchases could be called Early American and we have stayed with this theme. Today, we live in a Cape Cod house, the kind with a steep roof and dormer windows. The Early American theme continues inside our house.

2. CHOOSE MULTI-PURPOSE ITEMS. We have always had a round table in our house. Sometimes the table served as a nightstand next to the bed. It has also been used as a living room table. Most often, the round table was our kitchen table. This checkerboard idea – multifunction pieces that can “jump” from room to room – simplifies decorating.

3. BUY A FEW QUALITY PIECES. Sure, we’ve bought junk furniture and I’ve sanded it and painted it. But junk doesn’t last. On the other hand, a few quality pieces will last for years. When our kids were very young we invested in two Windsor chairs. They added charm to our Texas tract house, our Alabama barracks house, our quaint Ohio house, various other houses, and our present Minnesota house. Over the years I have had different cushions made for the chairs.

4. GET TWO THINGS THAT MATCH. This is where the checkerboard idea really pays off. Two pieces of furniture that match, like the Windsor chairs, can bring a room together. Suites of furniture aren’t popular now, but early in our marriage we bought a bedroom suite: bed, highboy, chest of drawers, and mirror. This furniture has come through all our moves unscathed. If necessary, I could use the mirror in the living room and my chest of drawers as a dining room hutch.

5. UNIFY WITH COLOR. Nothing unifies a room faster than color. We have so much mismatched furniture that I usually paint the walls white. Not refrigerator white, but a tan white or gray white. When I decorate a room I take wood colors into account. The orangey finish on our antique church pew, for example, blends well with the orange pillows on our sofa. I repeated the orange in cushions I had made for our Windsor chairs, which are now in the kitchen.

6. HAVE SOMETHING THAT DOESN’T BELONG. Our guest room has an antique wrought iron bed in it and an antique wicker chair. The wicker chair is pulled up to a white, modern Parson’s table, a design developed by the Parson’s School of Design in New York City. You wouldn’t think an antique chair would look good with a modern table, but it does.

7. SPOTLIGHT COLLECTIONS. Our kitchen is pretty much like everyone else’s kitchen, with the exception of my antique iron collection. The collection, which includes sad irons, tailor’s irons, and early electrics, sits atop the kitchen cupboards. My husband installed up lights to draw attention to the collection and the irons make our kitchen special.

Checkerboard Decorating allows you to make your place special. Like the checkers game, this kind of decorating is for everyone. It fits all decorating styles and all ages. Every time you move you use furniture in different ways. Tell your friends about Checkerboard Decorating because it’s smart and it’s fun.
