Aaron and Heather are no strangers to Apartment Therapy, they’ve shared their converted St. Louis firehouse home with us before. Their latest project? Making over a guest bedroom they affectionately call the Captain’s Suite. It was painted this bright orange shade with accents of royal blue, probably inspired by a sports’ team as Heather suspects this was the previous owner’s “man cave.” It wasn’t quite Heather and Aaron’s style, and the orange shade was keeping that beautiful brick from shining like it’s supposed to.

The new deep green shade – Pantone June Bug – is the perfect complement to the red brick wall. Some other changes that took place in the space were removing a closet, seen just to the left of the bed in the photos above, and converting the attached (un-working) bathroom into a vanity/closet/back bar for whatever guests are lucky enough to stay in this guest suite.

Thanks Heather and Aaron!
