Inspiration: A Rustic Modern Guest Room

Our Farmhaus only has two bedrooms, so the guest room is really the boys’ room.  While the boys were begging for a bunk bed, I knew that with our low ceiling height that scenario would be less than ideal so I’m opting for a good ol’ side by side set up.  So far we have transformed their space from this:

The white paint and light floors have done wonders, but my favorite thing has to be the shiplap wall (which I previewed on my Instagram). Now that the construction work on this side of the house is done, I get to have fun and design the spaces. I want their room to feel rustic yet modern, warm yet sophisticated. I want the boys to feel comfortable, but I want the space to work for grown ups too. Something along these lines, but leaning towards a more casual vibe:

The color palette is simple, yet the black spindle beds add a strong graphic element.  The bed can go either traditional or modern, it all depends on how the room is styled around it.  I’m going modern. Lucky for me, a while back I scored a pair of spindle bed frames at auction for a mere $60.  They were in pretty good shape and I knew immediately that they would be perfect for the boys once I paint them black.

The mood board for their room looks like this:

But I had to find good place holder for my board. Can’t wait for all the piece to come together! So far, so good.
