Accessories for High Impact
Country style is a comfortable look for a bedroom. It is warm and cozy and easy to live with. Braided rugs are cheap, practical, and come in all sizes and colors. If this style appeals to you, consider adding a rocking chair with a quilted pillow and a small quilted wall hanging as artwork.
A strip of Shaker-style pegs along one wall adds to the look and is practical.

The Guest Bedroom
Since most guest rooms are used infrequently, they tend to serve other needs when not occupied by a relative or friend. My guest room is usually filled with things for which there isn’t enough room elsewhere.
When my mother comes for a visit I simply tidy up and find temporary storage for the things I’ve piled on the bed or in the closet. Creating a pretty and comfortable guest room doesn’t take a lot of money and it’s quite satisfying to welcome a friend by providing a nice oasis no matter how long or short the visit. Since I live on a resort island, I know many people who entertain overnight guests in the summertime.
Here’s how some of them accommodate occasional guests.
Creative Use for a Closet
A friend of mine has just repainted her son’s childhood bedroom. Now he comes to visit with a wife and baby. Since they never use the closet, but rather live out of a suitcase, she decided to make better use of that closet.
When she replaced the twin bed with a double bed, it overwhelmed the space. So she removed the sliding closet doors and set the headboard of the double bed into the closet space. I suggested installing swing. Lamps on each side wall as well as a built-in shelf for a clock and other essentials.
A painting on the wall over the bed finishes what is now a cozy little niche.
