Galveston Idea House Guest Bedroom
Jean Allsopp

Guest Room

The blue-and-green vine-pattern fabric inspired this room's sophisticated look. "The colors were just so soft and pretty―I thought they would make for a wonderful guest room," Susan says. She had the headboard upholstered in the fabric and made a bed skirt to match, then had linens custom made with borders in corresponding colors.

Susan filled the room with dainty, feminine details, including curvy bedside tables and lamp shades trimmed with glass beads. On the windows, she "kept the curtains unlined and flowy," combining blue gingham draperies (edged in a green version of the same pattern) with white twill Roman shades.
