Before and After: Guest Quarters by Mae Brunken

Desire to Inspire recently posted a makeover of the poolside guest quarters of a Pacific Palisades estate by interior designer Mae Brunken, and I was completely floored by the project. As you can see, the space was cramped with large furniture, and it didn't quite make sense. Items were not stored properly, the television was oddly positioned, and quite frankly, the space simply lacked personality. Guest rooms are usually the last place we devote our attention when redecorating, but we should want to treat our pals to a well-designed room when they visit! To see Brunken's fantastic transformation,

I'm simply in love with this room! The soft gray and yellow color palette is splendid, and that rich zebrawood is so unusual. I almost can't believe it's the same room. Just using smaller, shorter furnishings has really made the space seem 10 times larger. The daybed is so versatile and ideal for a guest room. What do you think? Head over to Desire to Inspire to hear more about the project and to see more photos!
