Creating a sitting area in a bedroom doesn't require much space. A cozy green club chair and ottoman carve out the reading nook in the twin suite of HGTV Dream Home 2013, where two batik prints by artist Chariklia Zarris draw the eye.
To make this guest bedroom feel a little more like home, designers added a sitting room to the space. This space features a custom sofa with scalloped nailhead detail and a custom ottoman, both by Coddington Design, a cream leather, vintage Henredon can chair, wallpaper by Osborne and Little and a wool rug.
The guest bedroom “has the feeling of this island, where there is a lot of energy," says interior designer Linda Woodrum. "There is the sense that you could relax and have this nice experience of being somewhere different, but still it is very pleasant.”
