HOME DECOR: Tips For A Great Small Guest Room: Create space around the bed Moving the bed closer to the wall gives the impression of more space. Consider moving the bed away from the window and center it so that aisles on both sides are opened up. When you do this, the flow of the room will make it easier for your visitors to access the bed.
Monochromatic layering with metallics is yet another smart design trick – here the gray linens and painted walls partner beautifully with the silver leaf and chrome finishes reflected on the writing desk, light fixtures, and accessories.
Combining color balance: Use the “60-30-10 rule. Basically you have to match these numbers with colors and percentages. 60 percent of a room should feature one color or color scheme. This usually includes the walls. Then, the percent area is usually the furniture and it should feature a different color. The remaining 10 percent are represented by the accessories and accent details, such as the artwork, the plants, the lighting fixtures, etc.
