Fantasizing about decorating the guest bedroom is much more fun than dealing with the reality of cash and space limitations (BTW, the bedroom is only 12′ x 12′).
I hit up good old 1st Dibs to drool over dream pieces that would fulfill the list of items required to furnish the bedroom comfortably.
2. Pendant light (pair)
3. Headboard/bed frame
4. Nightstand (pair)
Below are my three imaginary mood boards that would be options for the bedroom if money and space were unlimited. These boards, even though they aren’t really options – still give me an idea about the direction (texture, mood and palette) I’d like to try and go for…as much as it’s realistically possible.

And hey, we didn’t even go into the bed linen’s, wall color or window coverings…well I guess with a budget this unlimited we would redo the closets, put in new floors, add a guest bathroom or just move to a completely different house in a vibrant and culturally exciting city (that obviously isn’t located in the Inland Empire).
