Inspiration for my room came from a gorgeous tent room in Schloss Charlottenhof, a villa in Potsdam designed by Karl Friedrich Schinkel in the first half of the 19th century. With a small space and low ceiling height I felt that enveloping the room top to bottom in fabric would be necessary to make what could be a dingy, sad space, unexpectedly fabulous. It would add the warmth and character the room was missing. I couldn’t achieve the full tent concept due to height restraints but created a similar effect. Inspired by Sister Parish, I opted to use the same striped fabric for the walls, ceiling, headboard and curtains. I looked to unexpected color combinations to infuse a certain playfulness in the space. Southerners never turn down a house guest, so a comfortable and inviting guest room seemed fitting.
