San Francisco Bedroom

Michael Merrill Design Studio created this spare yet exquisitely detailed guest suite--striking a delicate balance between masculine and feminine, contemporary and traditional. We made the small room appear much larger by emphasizing its height with the four-poster, all-upholstered canopy bed, which is an original design by Michael Merrill ASID.

    What a great question. During the entire 5 weeks of this showcase not a single person asked this rather obvious question. I am so glad you did. The draperies are not meant to be closed. They are meant to suggest the possibility of closing. They are meant to define the demarcation of one space from the other. When the bed was built in the room - it could not be brought in intact, the room suddenly looked much larger , and at the same time more intimate. I knew then that I had achieved what I was looking for. Thank you so much for your interest in our work.

6. Use a post bed frame to disguise the window This elegant hotel-like guest bedroom uses draperies in a similar way as the previous room, but the dropped ceiling gives the sleeping area a more intimate feeling.
