We’re honored that this bedroom was featured in the Fall 2013 issue of Austin Home Magazine.
When this second floor open loft in Dripping Springs, Texas was converted into a closed guest room, the resulting space featured a problematic L-shape, which made it impossible to accommodate a queen bed. The homeowners had their hearts set on creating a guest bedroom that would comfortably sleep two. But how?
Room Fu creates the illusion of a spacious guest room for two by using an asymmetrical combination of two twin beds. By placing one of the beds lengthwise along the main wall daybed-style, the guest bedroom still feels open–so much so, that we’re able to include a seating area in the mix!
This daybed-twin combo is stylishly pulled off with king- and twin-sized headboards by local furniture design company, Iron Thread Design. To personalize the guest bedroom, the clients supply Iron Thread with clothing and textiles from various family members who visit often, which Iron Thread, in turn, uses to create the mismatched buttons on the tufted headboards.
The geometric pattern of the laser-cut carbon steel side table coordinates with the trellis pattern on the bedding and the Zulu telephone wire basket works perfectly with a decorative pillow from Jonathan Adler. The mid-century flannel lounge chair is a perfect perch for guests!
A bright orange lamp with a distinctive design gives the bedside a pop of color.
