I was so excited to have this special little space I designed featured in the Boston Globe Magazine this weekend (shot by the wonderful Sarah Winchester)!  This room was for a long time client (whose house is in my book) that needed a study space for her daughter as well as a second guest room, and I think we succeeded on both fronts!


A daybed from Restoration Hardware anchored the room and gave us ample floor space for the other elements we needed to incorporate into the space.  We used Farrow & Ball’s Lotus wallpaper behind the bed for some drama and installed two brass sconces from Circa Lighting for ample direct reading light. All the pillows were custom as were the cuffed drapes.

In between the draped windows we used a tall skinny bookshelf for book storage ( lots of the accessories I found at Homegoods).

Across from the bed we used a West Elm dining table as a double desk so two chairs could face each other for when help was needed at homework time.
