What happens here: A woman’s family and friends enjoy a comfortable stay

Rosene has worked for years with the homeowner, who would call on her to work on projects after earning bonuses at work. The designer had previously refreshed the guest room for the homeowner’s grandchildren.
Though the homeowner calls the room “Jason’s room,” after her son, plenty of her friends enjoy staying here as well. The rug is one the designer had picked out for the house years ago, and she planned this room’s design around it.
Wall paint: Breath of Fresh Air, Benjamin Moore
Rosene re-covered the chair seat with a red fabric by Fabricut, called Chance, that plays off the bedding.
Tip: If artwork is looking tired or doesn’t seem to fit the room, have it rematted and reframed. The homeowner’s brother brought the three prints on the right back from Vietnam. Rosene freshened them up with new mats and frames. The antique map of France on the left is a family piece.
Desk paint: Lucerne with a satin finish, Benjamin Moore; desk lamp: Visual Comfort
Succulent arrangements: Robert-Lawrence Designs
Tip: Rosene recommends finding lamps with dimmers for bedrooms. Both the nightstand lamps and desk lamp have dimmers, so that the lighting scheme can go from dark and moody to reading-light bright.

If you look at the floor on the right side, you can see a small glass border tile detail. Rosene repeated the same glass tile in the shower niche.
Sconces: Visual Comfort; wall paint: Chesapeake Blue, Benjamin Moore; vanity, toilet paper holder, toilet brush: Restoration Hardware; tile: Daltile; toilet: American Standard
The shower stall has a 1-inch by 1-inch coordinating marble tile floor. Rosene had 12-inch by 12-inch tiles cut in half to 12 inches by 6 inches for the shower walls. Note the waterfall detail on the shower bench.
