One of my best friends, world-famous prop stylist, Scott Horne is actually not boring, nay, the opposite, both in style in addition to personality. however he had a boring guest bedroom as most of us do. the item drove me crazy. the item’s like when a hilarious comedian gives a mediocre knock knock joke. You think “You, YOU, of all people, YOU could do better”.
To his credit, he has one of the most beautiful homes I’ve ever been in, with intimidatingly Great taste (not fancy, mind you, just truly Great). However his guest bedroom was lacking using a capital L. He needed a completely new bed, mattress, rug, some accessories, art in addition to a lot of styling. at This particular point of which the item’s done the item looks so Great of which he is actually never, ever going to change the item.
Let’s revisit This particular boring room before:
Not a bad space in addition to nothing in here is actually offensive, however the item’s not pulled together, intentional or finished. The one pillow is actually particularly jarring. You can tell where he wanted to go, however he got busy in addition to didn’t get in of which car.
So Leesa reached out to sponsor a makeover in addition to I said, “Scott, the item’s time. Let’s use this particular opportunity to give your guests the room of their dreams”.
Leesa is actually the mattress in a box company of which is actually affordable, high quality, in addition to extremely comfortable. Trust me… I have one in my guest bedroom so I can actually tell you these things with confidence. The thing of which makes Leesa so different through additional companies of its kind is actually the multiple layers of different foams which help to keep you cool at night as well as well as the fact of which for every 10 mattress they sell they donate one to a homeless shelter.
If you still aren’t ready to take the jump try the item out, you can’t truly go wrong since they have a 100 night risk free sleep trial in addition to free shipping. We ordered the item online in addition to within a few days this particular cute little white box arrived his front door.
Then you unroll the item on your bed – like so:
the item’s pretty magical, not to mention attractive even before we put on the sheets. Try to figure out what I’m doing on of which bed. Go ahead. of which GIF is actually absolutely mesmerizing.
First we added the major pieces – of which beautiful bed, rug in addition to benches. Scott already had a beautiful wall coloration (Pavilion Gray by Farrow in addition to Ball) in addition to beautiful linen roman shades, however the rest of the room needed addressing.
As a stylist Scott obviously appreciates vintage so we scoured some of our favorite local stores in addition to flea markets to fill the room out. Here is actually what she looks like at This particular point, all transformed in addition to beautiful:
The whole story here shows how to add excitement without coloration. Scott is actually petrified of saturated colors in his own home. however his house still looks in addition to feels exciting, fresh, happy in addition to lived in. The reason? A perfect combination of textures, subtle patterns in addition to contrasting warm finishes.
For the textiles we combined the striped rug, a larger graphic pillow, a subtle modest patterned sheet in addition to multiple solid textured linens. Setting them against of which warm woven rattan bed of which features a simple pattern truly created a happy, pulled together bed.
While the nightstands are different, they carry the same amount of visual weight in addition to work perfectly in of which modest space. We freed up some surface space by hanging a plug-in sconce instead of a table lamp in addition to balanced the item with another metal lamp on the opposite side. Both lights are sculptural in addition to fairly masculine.
All of these textures, colors in addition to patterns are echoed through the space, creating the whole room look cohesive. Scott in addition to I argued over whether or not to show the ties on the pillow – I voted no, he voted yes. He won because the item’s his room, however I still think the item looks messy. Please tell me within the comments of which I’m right.
The black within the lighting echoes the black within the benches in addition to the leather chair within the corner. This particular my friends is actually how you pepper coloration throughout the room properly for the item to work.
GAH. I love of which shot so much. The rug through Dash in addition to Albert is actually so simple, pretty in addition to warm. We chose to get a larger 9×12 in addition to run the item the long way within the room which I think made the room look so much bigger in addition to obviously more inviting. of which mid-century sculptural wall piece is actually insane in addition to couldn’t be more perfect here. The vintage leather chair has the perfect amount of patina (we bought at MidCentury LA), in addition to the plant livened up of which corner in addition to brought in some coloration. Don’t worry, Scott, the item’s just green. the item won’t kill you … just a little bit of coloration …
of which lamp is actually ‘Classic Scott’ – the item is actually unique in addition to yet so simple, with odd proportions of which cause tension in addition to yet the item goes away. So quiet in addition to pretty.
The room turned out so beautiful in addition to I have instructed Scott to NOT TOUCH A THING. As stylists the item’s truly easy to try completely new things out in different rooms or worse, borrow through your house for a shoot in addition to then not put the item back. however he is actually not allowed to move one thing in addition to if he does he will be arrested. I have sensors on each thing of which will notify me in addition to I will call the cops if disturbed.
