Guest Room Ideas :: Round 2

OK, on Monday I hinted that I had some new guest room ideas brewing.  You may remember the first guest room mock up I did, but a lot of those items are no longer available... so.. here we are.

This time around, I really wanted things to be bright and cheery, so what better place to start than a wall covered in this Orla Kiely wallpaper?  It's super fun and playful, not to mention versatile as far as a potential color scheme goes.  I thought it would be great to match the rest of the walls in Woodlawn Blue from Benjamin Moore.

I was pretty set on having the Flex Sofa serve as a convertible bed (the now-discontinued green color was my initial choice last time), and fortunately the red/orange color goes perfectly with the wallpaper!  I also love this green rug, as it ties in wonderfully as well without competing with the bold pattern of the wall.

To help keep the room from turning into a complete circus, I thought about bringing in some beautiful walnut pieces and grey accessories.  Top the room off with a playful ceiling light, and we're set.  All that's left really is to add a few decorative touches, like artwork and some sort of mirror.  Oh, and make sure all this stuff would actually fit in our space!

SO, what do you think?  Should I go for it?  Is this a room you'd crash in?  Give me all the feedback you can muster!
