My guest bedroom makeover

It has been a while since I got around to decorating my guest bedroom and I finally found some time to snap some photos so I can share it with you. This room is annoyingly small (10'x8.5') so it fits nothing really but our old queen size bed and a couple of small furniture items. I am tempted to do what the next door neighbours did and rip out the wall between it and the master bedroom and make an ensuite....maybe one day when I win the lottery. In the meantime if anyone wants to stay over, we have a proper bedroom setup which we did not have in our tiny previous 2 bedroom (1 bedroom plus dressing room/closet) house. As for the decor, after working on most of the other rooms in the house I came to realize that I had a bunch of things I had carted back with me from one of my many winter vacations in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico that did not have homes. Thus resulting in this Mexican theme space! At the end of the post I will list sources, but just about all of it are Mexico mementos. This room was a great excuse to try one of the new Farrow & ball colours - Inchyra Blue which I used on the ceiling and opposing walls to create a canopy effect. I LOVE this incredible blue/teal/grey shade and how cocooning painting those 3 walls are without going dark all over (I have enough dark rooms in this house already). I highly recommend this colour for anyone looking for something unique that is dark but not too dark. And as I have come to expect from F&B colours, it has chameleon tendencies and changes drastically depending on the amount of light.

El Dorado

This modern Spanish hacienda on the sands of San Jose del Cabo is certainly a golden retreat for the large family that lives there. I love the earthy luxury of this home. Natural materials, a weightiness to the structure but still that connection between inside and out. El Dorado by Chris Barrett Design.

Working on a Saturday

I would never complain again about working on a Saturday if my workplace looked like this. The design details are like jewellery for the room. No, whether artisan maker or sales assistant this could never be considered work. ANDRESGALLARDO’s studio-shop in Madrid by Savvy.
