Great Spaces: Gorgeous Guest Suite

A West Coast guest room gets some East Coast flavour with soaring white walls, natural linen window coverings and a breezy colour palette.

Designer Lesli Balagno of Vancouver’s Heffel Balagno created this Cape Cod-inspired space with ease in mind: do a pillow tuck with the bedspread, throw on the bedroll and the guest space is good to go—no need to fuss with multiple throw pillows or blankets. The timeless room has a simple palette (cool greys, clean white, warm linen) but gets the look of a boutique hotel by varying textures, including a mohair-covered dressing bench, woven fabric on the headboard, a cozy wool throw and a silky bedroll.WL0913.One-Cool-Room.6
