What Houzz contributors are saying:
Add fresh flowers. I know I sound like a broken record with the flowers, but they are such a nice touch. Even if it’s one little rosebud in a tiny vase, or magnolia leaves picked from your yard, this gesture will make guests feel extra welcome.
A small room benefits from the same elements as a larger one. The round mirror above the mansard headboard is a fun contrast, while all the textures (headboard, bedding, flooring, curtains) give the room depth and sophistication. More: 11 Inventive Headboards
Somewhere between the rectangular and whimsically curved headboards is a simpler model with subtly curved notches. This extra-tall headboard with small notches is a good choice for a twin bed; it keeps it from getting lost in the corner of the room.
3. Set out a bouquet of fresh flowers. Even a single stem on the nightstand, dresser, or bathroom vanity will do. In the winter, clip a branch from an evergreen for holiday cheer. Extra touches like this will make your guests feel special.
Erica Islas of EMI Interior Design: "My vision for thisspace was to create a fresh, organic, uplifting space that felt like a home for the resident of this room at Good Shepherd, instead of just a room. It was also important to keep in mind that this room would need to hold up the test of time since it is transitional housing and many women would use the space."
