A Pop of Color
If your style is more bold and bright, this is the perfect guest room for you. Blogger Kelly in the City started with a pop of green paint and used it as inspiration for the rest of the room’s vivid accessories. Even if you tend to pick safe, neutral colors in your décor, a guest room is the perfect place to be brave with color and go a little bolder. A trundle bed, outfitted with equally intense blues and greens is a great option if you’re low on space but host multiple guests often.Continue to 7 of 13 below.
