The Esperanza at The Menagerie - Fredericksburg, Texas
Esperanza is located on the bottom floor of a historic Victorian barn, blends old-world and contemporary with an eclectic mix of vintage, antique and modern accents.
To inspire our design choices throughout the space, we pulled colors from the lively wallpaper and rug. Balancing traditional and modern, we placed an antique corner desk with a hand-painted desk chair and a vintage bedside table on one side of the vintage iron bed, and a sleek modern dining table on the other. To introduce elegance and warmth to the room, we designed a custom tester above the bed with olive fabric and a micro pom trim. In the bathroom, we added interest and more drama with black-and-white checkered flooring.
Wide but shallow, the unique, boxy shape of this space didn’t allow for a seating arrangement at the foot of the bed. We addressed this issue by instead creating a seating area with vintage woven leather Palecek accent chairs around the existing fireplace, which we cleaned up with bead board and trim.
Our favorite part of this unit is the regal bedding arrangement. Sitting directly across from the French doors, the bed — flanked by vintage bedside tables and crowned by a splendid half-tester canopy — is the first thing you see when you enter the room.
