Guest Room Colour Ideas & Inspiration

Guest Rooms by Season

The ebb and flow of houseguests usually depends on where you live and the time of year. If you tend to entertain more in the spring and summer, a cheery blue paint colour like Windmill Wings 2067-60, seen here, serves as a vibrant welcome.

For homeowners hosting guests during the event-heavy fall and winter months, choose a hue that reflects the coziness of the season—or pick a hue that offers instant Zen and encourages relaxation amid the hustle and bustle of holiday travel and plans, like Inner Balance 1522.

If you host year-round, opt for a go-with-anything, off-white paint colour that complements any seasonal guest room decorating ideas you may have—Whitewater Bay OC-70 and White Heron OC-57 are a couple of our favourites!

A Natural Retreat for Guests—Or Yourself

Even the most frequently used guest rooms will have a period of downtime throughout the year. How you decorate a guest room should be a combination of what you love and what your guests love—and that includes paint colours. A guest room can become anything when it's not in use: an office, a playroom, or even a small space for meditating or watching a favourite television show.

Decorate your guest room in a way that feels comfortable to you, as it will be your space to enjoy when guests aren’t around. Natural hues like Copley Gray HC-104, shown here, adapt to any time of year and décor, but also create an especially earthy peacefulness when paired with wood furniture and soft linens.

En suite Guest Rooms, Spa Style

If your guest room offers an en suite bathroom, treat your guests to a spa-like oasis with colours and decor that inspire a calming mood. If you have a relaxing bedroom hue already, consider using it in the bath, too, for optimal colour flow—or surprise your guests with a bold pop of colour, like Cheating Heart 1617 or Beau Green 2054-20.

If you prefer to keep it simple, a bright white paint colour easily does the trick. Here, Decorator’s White OC-149 opens up this small bathroom space, while the combination of black accents and wood feels modern and sophisticated. Updated lighting and sleek design bring everything together for 5-star hotel luxury.
