Be our guest, be our guest

The Smallest-Guest-Room-In-The-World needs a makeover. This room has gorgeous pumpkin pine floors, which only appear in 1 other room in the house, but the room is so small I feel pangs of guilt every time I make someone stay in there. If it had a new coat of paint and some atmosphere, I wouldn't feel so badly about treating my house guests like sardines.

I looked through old Domino Magazines for inspiration.

Do you think its true that a bold color would make it feel larger? I think a dark blue like this would make people sleep better, but I'm not sure it would really feel any larger.

I love the gray upholstered headboard and the nail-head trim that is everywhere now. This blue on the wall seems cheerful too.
I love these twin beds in gray with the matching curtain, but I don't know about the Bone White paint on the walls. It just looks dingy to me.

I'll post a "before" picture as soon as I find one that isn't too hideous.

I love painting small rooms in a dark color. I painted my bathroom black and love it.

People thought I was nuts, but with a white door, window, white shower curtain and all that tile it doesn't darken the room at all!

I think you should go for it!

Thank you, High-Heeled Foot in the door, for the encouragement!

I'm not sure if going bold will make a room feel larger, but I think it does make a room feel more special and stylish. Love the grey headboard.
