New Neutral

A mix of gray and beige with navy blue as an accent creates the on-trend color scheme for this inviting guest bedroom with a sculptural canopy bed that sits center stage.
From:

Upholstered Storage

An upholstered navy double door cabinet acts as a nightstand on each side of the canopy bed and offers storage and display space for framed photos, fresh flowers and table lamps. 
From:

Oversized Art

Large framed navy blue wall art adds a major punch of color to this guest bedroom with classic stripes and quatrefoil.
From:

Accent Color

The impressive wall art creates a focal point and celebrates the guest bedroom’s accent color of navy blue.
From:

Special Guest

A furry friend depicted in framed art on the nightstand enjoys the comfort of the guest bedroom’s cozy full-sized canopy bed.
From:

Beautiful Benches

Two upholstered wood benches in taupe at the end of the canopy bed offer a spot to change shoes or casually store an extra throw for chilly nights. 
From:

Casual and Natural Rug

A casual and natural hand-woven rug under the canopy bed, in a shade of greige that reinforces the color scheme, anchors the guest bedroom.
From:

Wonderful Windows

The large historic windows behind the bed bring lots of natural light inside both the guest bedroom and the hallway outside thanks to the addition of the French doors.
From:

Ambient Light

A five-light distressed black flush mount ceiling lamp provides illumination over the canopy bed.
From:

Easy-Care Bedding

On the comfortable and easy-care bedding, classic stipes in greige coordinate with the guest bedroom’s neutral color scheme and provide contrast for the bedroom’s soft drapery that adds more pattern to the space.
From:

Flowing Bed Frame

The flowing frame of the charcoal canopy bed helps make the guest bedroom feel taller.
From:

Antiqued Table Lamps

The cast iron table lamps on the nightstands have drum shades in a rust beige linen fabric. The stylish lamps offer both illumination and visual height for the room.
From:

Chic Navy Cabinets

The cabinets on each side of the canopy bed that act as nightstands are upholstered in navy linen and embellished with brass studs for edgy nail head trim.
From:

Adjoining Spaces

This view, with the door to the adjoining guest bathroom open, gives a glimpse of the attractive space with different shades of blue-green. The size of the existing large bedroom was reduced to allow space for the adjoining guest bathroom.
From:

TV Time

A wall-mounted, 40-inch HD smart TV sits above the guest bedroom’s aged zinc and ash wood console table. The rustic table includes stacks of books and baskets that keep bedroom essentials close by.
From:

Attractive Accessories

Natural blue agave framed art, a Keith Haring framed art print and a two-piece leather keepsake decorative box set are some of the attractive accessories on top of the console table.
From:

Soothing Space for Sleep

The neutral colors used for the trim and light gray walls with cool undertones of the guest bedroom create a soft and soothing environment for a great night’s sleep.
From:

Flow of Light

The new French doors that replace a single door create more of a grand entrance and allow the guest bedroom to be seen, even when the doors are closed. “We wanted to make sure we had light flowing throughout the house as much as we could, to make sure that the center of the house—which doesn’t have windows—doesn’t get too dark,” says designer Brian Patrick Flynn.
From:

Grand Entrance

This look from the hallway into the guest bedroom with the French doors open shows the striking first impression that greets overnight guests.
