What Houzz contributors are saying:
Focus on the fabricThis canopy was created using a shop-bought corona – that’s the metal fixture attached the wall at the top. Sumptuous Manuel Canovas and Vaughan fabrics were then hung from it to add a touch of luxury to this guest sleep space in an Edinburgh flat.
The guest room was originally the kitchen, and vice versa, before Jessica renovated. She deliberately lived in the flat for a year before making any major decisions in order to get used to the space. ‘I was going to have the kitchen done first,’ she reveals, ‘but it slowly became apparent the rooms were the wrong way round – the guest room was flooded with light, and in Edinburgh you really want to make the most of the sun when you get it. It seemed a waste to have all that sunlight in a room used only occasionally.’ The ikat cushions on the bed are made from fabric Jessica picked up in Uzbekistan, and she now sells similar designs in her own shop. She bought the rug in Morocco. The box frames on either side of the bed hold tribal ceremonial food bowls she picked up in Papua New Guinea.
