[room of the week] Spanish bohemian guest room(s)

Yesterday was a happy day – my April issue of Canadian House & Home arrived. I’ve only had a chance to do a quick flip through but this one image caught my eye:

What a charming nook!  Piled high with cushy colourful pillows, this alcove is the perfect spot to curl up and read a book in this home office-turned-guest room. I love the combination of the rustic desk and the modern rolling chair. And the layered colour on pattern on colour creates a casual bohemian vibe.  I thought this was the perfect room of the week.

But then I saw a second guest room in the same house:

Hello! Similar to the first guest room, this one ooozes vibrancy with a bold combination a fuchsias, greens, and pops of yellow. These gorgeous fabrics come from Kathryn Ireland‘s newest textile collection and really help the designer achieve that perfect Spanish Mexican-meets-Moroccan vibe. And look at those side table. And the art.  Love.

    I love your rooms of the week too, Dayna. The cheery colours and patterns are especially welcome at this grey and dull time of year. Come and decorate for me please!

      So true! We are in dire need of some sunshine and spring colours!
