The Menagerie - Fredericksburg, Texas
When a client approached us with the task of designing her 12 VRBO rental units in historic Fredericksburg, she had one request: She wanted to create a boutique hotel vibe with lots of color. This unit, a refurbished garage in a Victorian home, is a great example of how we took her request and ran with it.
Seeking to create a dreamy, immersive experience, our design team combined high-impact wallpaper and rich colors. Inspired by international travel, we layered the room with vintage pieces from around the world, including a custom rug from Morocco and a 19th-century French armoire. We paired the regal Portuguese bed with two black lacquer chinoiserie Chinese nightstands.
The space was fairly large, so we added a picture rail along the paneling to create a feeling of coziness. We curated a selection of artwork, incorporating texture into the selection with pieces like a Portuguese mirror and needlepoint. In the bathroom, we complemented the existing stain-glass window with striking mural wallpaper. To complete the bathroom, we added white checker flooring and a clawfoot bathtub.
You’ll feel like you’ve traveled the world just by entering this space – it’s like a treasure trove of far-flung finds!
