Guestroom décor have you stumped?

Guest rooms often have dual uses, so they can be difficult to decorate. Home and lifestyle blogger, Lauren McBride, offers tips for making a guest room feel special for visitors, while remaining functional for everyday use.

Her solution? Focus on the ceiling AKA the fifth wall.

McBride partnered with VELUX Skylights this spring to refresh her guest room, starting with replacing her existing skylights with two VELUX No Leak Solar Powered “Fresh Air” Skylights with light filtering blinds.

“Our guest room has a beautiful vaulted ceiling, and I wanted to accentuate it to the best of my ability, so it really stands out,” McBride said. “Updating the skylights meant we not only have beautiful natural light in the room, but also added functionality: blinds to control the light and the ability to open the skylights with a remote control to bring in fresh air.”

McBride took advantage the of the natural light streaming in from above to highlight the faux shiplap painted white on the ceiling. This added detail gives the room a fresh, coastal, relaxed vibe. She finished the space by replacing her ceiling fan with a fun, natural wood chandelier.

With three easy steps, she created a room that combines her rustic farmhouse and coastal chic décor aesthetic that’s perfect for a home office, but relaxing for guests.
