Peninsula Volunteers Decorator Show House :: Guest Bedroom & Bath

Melodie Rubin of House of Ruby designed the Traveler’s Bedroom, a serene guest retreat for the Peninsula Volunteers Decorator Show House in Woodside, California going on now until May 24th. The sunlit second floor bedroom as Melodie puts it, “offers the best seat in the house, providing an impressive view of the three-story birch tree and Woodside hills beyond.”

It’s the gilded canopy bed however, that takes center stage. I love that it has a soft upholstered headboard – it’s a nice juxtaposition to the metal frame. An ornate hand-beaded floral chandelier (which reminded me of a birdcage) hangs elegantly above a seating area placed at the foot of the bed.

The pair of Bunny Williams table lamps beautifully mimic the movement and pattern in throw pillows on the sofa love-seat. Those table lamps are gorgeous and are a personal favorite.

Melodie (pictured above) designed a custom corner bookshelf lined in blue paint. It not only balances the room, but displays beautiful collections of art, books and worldly treasures. I also loved the sculpture of the colorful archer she selected and place just beside the bookcase.

Just of the guest bedroom is the Dressing Room and Bath by Jana Meewes Fung of Julianne Quelle Interior Design. It’s restful sage, lavender and taupe color palette allows for a seamless transition between the two spaces. Standout elements in this space include an exquisite Venetian mirror, bamboo “Dynasty” chair and luxurious fabrics.

These spaces are so fresh, crisp and chic. Love! Don’t you?

    Funny. The DC design house used the same bed in the master.

    Such a pretty bed. I bet it would look great in a very simple room.

    That is just what I aspired to is a calm, peaceful and playful place to sit and daydream while you get ready for the day!

      Hi Jana,

      A reader wanted to know what wallpaper was used in the space. Would you share?

      Congrats again!

    The lavender vanity and chair photo is my all time favorite would love to sit there and do my makeup every morning. The bookcase lighting is wonderful.

    It was a lot of fun to work on Melodie’s bedding and curtains for this showcase. The room is beautiful.

      The bedding and drapery were perfect! You are a master!

    Those drapes are stunning! Loved the archer as well. The colors reminded me of someone. Love when art does that.
