The lure of tiny living is a popular topic these days. But truth be told, tiny living only works when you’ve got a smart design on your side. The State Street Bungalow guest room is one such space. This tiny guest bedroom used to have a built-in daybed with storage underneath. But this home was ready for a sophisticated upgrade.
We were limited with what we could do to the small and odd-shaped room thanks to a stairwell on the outer wall. After I had my team dissemble the built-in bed, I was able to add a queen size bed along with two floating shelves– a better options since nightstands were not going to fit the space. I added shiplap to entire the wall to pose as the new headboard.
Since the space was so small, I wanted the shiplap to be installed horizontally instead of vertically to give the vision of a wider looking space and it worked! Simply White by Benjamin Moore painted on shiplap wall and Moonshine (also Benjamin Moore) a very light crisp grey on the rest of the walls also helped make the room feel bigger than it is.
I also installed two pendant lights to hang above floating nightstands to give that elegant appeal and to make this tiny guest bedroom feel larger.
To accent all the white, I added navy to the room to really pop and give us that true bungalow style. I purchased all bedding from Serena & Lily, floating nightstands from a custom shop on Etsy and lighting from Birch Lane.
Stay tuned for more of our renovations. Next up: The living room.
