Here, my famous designing friend, Thomas Britt, created a folly of a guesthouse~ and it was such a treat to get to spend a night there!  The octagon shape of our room was made even more exotic by the peaked ceiling...and the stenciled floor!

Notice the Syrie Maugham style settee.  There were no less than eight (8) ! imperial foo dogs protecting us from the evil spirits, so we slept like the dead!  The genius of this room, besides the architecture, is Tom's inspired palette of a Chinese red, a Palm Beach peach-coral, and turquoise-aqua with touches of lilac...truly magical and enchanting. 

It was a long held dream of mine to see this folly-guest house in person, and then to get to spend the night there put me over the moon, as you can imagine.  Enjoy!  DF *****

P.S.  Stay tuned for the gardens of Britthampton, coming up next!
