A green, black and white bedroom by Ghislaine Viñas

It seems that most guest or B&B bedrooms I’ve been to in Australia (and a few in the US) feature many of the same things: frills, lace, floral vintage eiderdowns, heavy four poster beds, Aubusson-imitation rugs by every piece of furniture, dried flowers in floral vases, floral curtains… (all very toxic to a dust-allergic couple!).

Now that I have a room for guests and family visiting, my plan for the guest bedroom is vastly different:

After seeing this carefully edited, deceptively simple and uncluttered bedroom above by Ghislaine Viñas, I’ve always wanted a guest bedroom in lush, fresh and sharp tones of green, black and white.

Green, green, green

A while back there was a discussion in design blogland about how tacky imitations are and how one should strive for one own’s interior delight. But I think there’s a level of imitation that is acceptable, even laudable, especially when it’s not the entire room imitated, but the feel, the colours, the shapes. The ideas.

But this is the shade of green I love. The deep, rich, verdant green
