One of our favorite summer bedrooms is from Glen Luchford’s Rose Hotel in Venice Beach, Los Angeles. The rooms, designed by Katerina Tana, are modest and feature vintage lighting, utility blankets, painted furniture, and easy DIYs that make all the difference.
If you’re outfitting an extra summer bedroom (or multiple rooms like Luchford and partner Doug Bruce), staying in budget is a prime concern. With this in mind, we’ve sourced similar components to the budget-friendly Rose Hotel guest rooms without sacrificing style.
