San Francisco Bedroom

Making a small room feel spacious is always a challenge. This 110 square foot guest bedroom was designed in the quietest, simplest, most unobtrusive way possible using many visual cues to create a calm and seemingly larger volume. Diagonal sightlines, open back chairs, furniture that does not extend to the floor, open weave fabrics at the windows all contribute to a sense of spaciousness. This is a room we hope a guest would be happy to spend more than a single night in. (2001)

We just made a plywood shelf and wrapped it in calfskin. Not too difficult to do yourself.

In instances where the color is extremely critical, I hand mix the paint, trial and error, on site. Therefore, there is no color name or match that I have. I merely call this one "Left Over Paint."

hmmm...just a thought, the dormer off the master, just a couple of brackets and a trimmed out shelf and you have a desk...maybe? Depends how high the windows wind up being.
