Flexibility was built into the house’s design, with several rooms serving multiple purposes. A daybed in the guest room could be used for overnight visitors or as a cozy spot for the homeowners to read or watch TV. The room’s design echoes that of the master bedroom, with nailheads on the end of the daybed repeating the geometric shapes of the fretwork fabric. A hand-painted cherry blossom wall covering, an Indonesian basket lamp, and other furnishings reflect the Asian inspiration seen in much of the townhouse.
The daybed and side chair are upholstered in Beacon Hill fabrics. A soft cream-toned Shaw rug warms the room, while an antique runner unifies the palette.
