Anatomy of a Perfect Guest Bedroom

A few weeks ago I wrote about designer Patrick Printy’s Oakland home, featured in the April issue of Elle Decor, and while researching that post I came across so many other great spaces designed by Printy!  One of these spaces is a charming little  guest bedroom in Mill Valley, California. The entire project is stunning and was published in Cottages & Gardens (you can have a peek at the rest of the home here) but this little bedroom caught my attention.

Blue and yellow go great together and I just love Printy’s idea to use them both in such a small space. I think the main reason this room works so well is it’s functionality – it can be a guest bedroom and/or a cozy home office. With lots of interesting layers of pattern and art, the eye wonders throughout!

If you’d like to shop this look, I gathered a few elements that will help you achieve a similar mix.
