Inviting Guest Bedroom

While the original home had four very small bedrooms, the new design offers a larger master bedroom, a flexible den with sleeper sofa, a sleeping nook with two twin beds, and this inviting guest bedroom with queen bed.

Masculine Furniture

A single drawer end table that offers both open and closed storage serves as a nightstand for this side of the upholstered queen bed.

Timely Touches

A round alarm clock made from fine beachwood with night light function sits on the left nightstand, ready to be set to wake up visitors for a fun day by the lake.

Textured Art

A palette knife was used to create the beautiful texture on the custom artwork that decorates the guest bedroom wall.

Soft Landscapes

Artist Bert John used a very thin gold leaf border rather than a traditional frame to finish the custom artwork. The thinly applied, soft coastal landscapes feature feminine colors that reflect the easy style of this carefree and relaxed guest bedroom.

Natural Beauty Bed

The guest bedroom’s upholstered queen bed includes dyed weathered oak and exotic birds-eye maple, with finishes that allow the grain of the wood to shine.

Stylishly Comfortable

The upholstered queen bed includes the easy-care benefits of a performance fabric with a reclining shape that offers comfort with fashion-forward style.

Bohemian Pillows

Bohemian style decorative pillows with embroidered detailing add color and pattern to the top of the guest bedroom’s queen bed.

Striking Focal Point

An oil-rubbed bronze single orb pendant light offers illumination and creates a focal point above the bed.

Enticing Prize Package

A check for $50,000 is part of the enticing prize package for the DIY Network Ultimate Retreat 2017.

Soft Neutral Bedding

The bed’s stitched striped quilt in gray has a simple design in a pleasing soft neutral. The easy-care, 100 percent cotton quilted bedding is reversible and machine washable.

Handsome Nightstand

A single drawer end table that offers both open and closed storage serves as a nightstand for this side of the upholstered queen bed.

Midcentury Style

The two dark table lamps that flank each side of the bed have a bottle-shape and glazed ceramic base with a simple linen drum shade that adds midcentury flair to the guest bedroom.

Easy Floor Plan

Located next to the master bedroom, the door to the guest bedroom opens into the hallway that leads to the front entry and main living areas of the home.

Modern Bohemian Rug

A multicolored area rug under the bed adds a pop of pattern over the bedroom's distressed mountain oak floor that has a natural worn appearance. 

Contrasting Trim

White trim pops against the guest bedroom's soft blue walls. "I would say the paint color on the walls isn't really masculine or feminine, it's kind of a good middle ground," says interior designer Elizabeth Demos.

Corner Closet

A well-organized closet in the back corner by casement windows that allow lots of natural light inside offers storage for bedroom essentials.

Colorful and Efficient

Bright pink walls provide a colorful backdrop for the efficient guest bedroom closet with drawers, shelves and easy-access hanging storage for assorted clothes and accessories.

Storage Strategy

Upper closet shelves with baskets offer a simple way to keep extra bedding and seasonal items out of the way, so guests can keep their clothing and accessories stored at eye level or below.

Ventilated Drawers

Mesh drawers in the guest bedroom closet have dividers to keep folded sweaters, lingerie and other delicate items organized and easily accessible.
