When the designers toured the house, I was not overly impressed with this room:
When asked, I accepted the challenge; none of the designers had chosen this space!
I decided to highlight the room's positive characteristics. It has high ceilings, a beautiful window and an amazing balcony.
I chose to place a daybed in front of the window and radiator and have a cover built for the radiator to serve as a sofa table of sorts. Bolster cushions sit on the radiator cover and a window scarf dresses both the window and the bed. Custom cabinetry ties the whole thing together and provides bedside tables for storage and a place for those huge lampshades. The window becomes the focal point of the room.

U-Fab. The duvet and bolsters are also from U-Fab. Custom cabinetry by Maya Wood. Fabulous fun oversized lampshades were recovered in coordinating fabric.
What a spectacular feature of this room -- I couldn't leave it empty!
A gorgeous white Murano glass chandelier from Shades of Light really adds sparkle to the ceiling. While this room now only accommodates one bed, I was able to add a refurbished decoupaged desk (tutorial to come later in the week) with a fabulous re-upholstered chair also done by U-Fab.
Here's a little vignette featuring a white lacquered dresser with a mirrored top from Shades of Light, a Snow White mirror and some fun accessories -- love the whippet from Patina, Anitques, etc.!
And, I can't leave out my daughter's one-of-a-kind painting to fill up the wall-- so proud!!
Best wishes to the Shelter for Help in Emergency.
