Suzanne is finally converting my bedroom at her house in Rye into a guest bedroom (wah!). While I’m a little bit sad to see my old bedroom go, I’m excited about the new decorating that lies ahead. The room is long and narrow so a pair of twin beds suits it quite well. Twin beds in guest bedrooms seem to be having quite the resurgence lately in the decorating world, and we couldn’t be happier. These are a few of the inspiration photos we’ve been collecting over the past few weeks…Image credit: Above left (Amanda Nisbet), right (Barry Benson). Below (Suzanne Kasler).The room above, designed by Suzanne Kasler, is a wonderful example of a very modern version of the matchy-matchy trend we talked about earlier this week (click here to see that post).Isn’t the shape of the headboards (below right) fantastic? You can definitely get away with a more dramatic shaped headboard when it’s a twin. We haven’t finalized the shape of the headboards for our guest bedroom yet, but these are a few of our favorites that are available online right now. We love that Ballard Designs has added a scalloped edge headboard to their collection (below left). Clockwise from top left: Ballard Designs (scallop perfection), Oomph (great shape and customizable in a variety of different fabrics), John Robshaw (a real statement headboard!), Pottery Barn (this seagrass headboard would be perfect for a beach house), Layla Grayce (a pair of one-of-a-kind Antique twin beds), Ballard Designs (pretty, simple shape available in lots of colors).
