- An unused bar area is turned into a guest bed nook. The interior is covered with batting stapled directly to the walls. Four yards of linen fabric is then stapled over the batting. Braided jute cord nailed to the wall acts as trim and hides the staples near the ceiling. A tablecloth is stretched across the ceiling to add softness up high and cover the acoustic tile. The guest bed is placed in the small space sideways for a daybed look. Small wall lanterns add ambiant lighting. The entire area is separated from the rest of the room with a linen curtain hung by more jute cording. A mirror hung from a glass knob and plenty of pillows complete the design.
