Guest Suite Reveal

The bed inside Eva Amurri's newly finished Guest Suite

An area of my house that excited me from the moment I first saw it was the beautiful third floor. With gorgeous, original Victorian windows (the warped glass is just so romantic to me…I love thinking about what they have “seen” over the years!) and the most beautiful wide plank floors that are hundreds of years old– the rooms at the tippety top of the house are so special to me. The rooms are the old “servants quarters” of the home, and had been divided up in to smaller rooms.  They are up a very steep staircase, and didn’t make sense to use as part of the everyday living quarters– but we knew they would make a beautiful guest suite! We just had to add a bathroom.  Today I’m so excited to share the space with you!

We had to knock down walls and consolidate space to create the guest bedroom, and the result is the most serene space in the whole house, in my opinion.  The light that this room gets is so peaceful and calming to me. I sometimes come up here when I need a bit of time to myself or if I’m feeling emotional and overwhelmed, and I find that it has such a great energy and calming effect.  I wanted to play off of the beautiful light that the space already got, and create a really simple but chic room.  I love how the trompe l’oeil wallpaper and the more fun shade fabric create just enough intrigue while also keeping it simple and pared down.

For the bathroom, I wanted an industrial feel with a play on pattern.  I love how the prints of the tile (do you recognize it from my mudroom in our last house?!) and the shower curtain and shades come together to be soothing but also dynamic.  I think this space is such a beautiful oasis for our guests, and who knows– maybe it will be Marlowe’s little Princess space when she’s a preteen and we need to banish her to the attic! LOL.

    It’s only 10:30 AM on the west coast, and I’ve already had a day from hell at work — I would LOVE to be in this room right now! It looks so calming and peaceful. Beautiful job — and good luck getting rid of your guests after they stay in it. 😉

    I swear to goodness, I could go on and on about how much I love what you have done with this beautiful home. You’ve simply outdone yourself. Such a perfect aesthetic. Bravo!

    You do a fantastic job of taking pictures of every detail. For some reason every time I go into Anthropology I want a chair more than the clothes too. They use to have the best towels in the store but they don’t have them here anymore (San Diego) Maybe online. Love this room. Take Care

    Your houses have become my design inspiration. My husband and I are in the process of buying our first home. I may use Roman shades instead of mini blinds and curtains. Did you have yours custom made?
