Meg also put together a Pinterest board with some inspiration images, which was a huge help. I noticed two things right away, and they would both work with the duvet cover:
-- As for the walls, I'd do a pale blue to keep the open feel while adding a touch of color. It's hard to pick one online, but Breathless from Olympic could be a starting point.
-- Some dark bamboo shades from Home Depot ($37/ea.) will add contrast and keep the room from feeling too light. Keeping the existing wicker chair and dresser and spraying them dark brown to match would also provide some richness.
-- I would center the double bed under the window and add a simple nightstand from IKEA ($70) on the left to balance out the AC unit. And keep that metal lamp, too! It's cute.
-- A turquoise throw pillow also from IKEA ($7) would work well in the chair. If a guest gets cold, a simple white quilt ($40) would be nice at the foot of the bed.
-- Meg already has some colorful art, but if she needs more this print from Etsy would be fun ($18).
The total cost will vary a little depending on what method they use for the ceiling, but I think it's safe to say the price tag will be in the ballpark of $300. Boo ya! I emailed the plan to Meg a few days ago, and she and her husband both love it. (Actually, she said, "We LOVE it." Even better.)
I have another design for a friend in the works, and I'm still offering more consultations for free while I build my portfolio. Let me know if you're interested in a little design help! You can leave a comment below or email me: paige.ronchetti [at] gmail.
