For their desert vacation house near San Bernardino, California, one couple decided they wanted to see trees everywhere… so they decided to have them inside their bedroom.

This master bedroom from 1972 was a peaceful mist of water lily colors — Monet pastels — with one fairly strong green on the rug.

But it was not a “fragile” nor a particularly feminine room. Four custom-made wrought-iron trees, anchored to the floor, soared 10 feet high to act as bedposts that tethered a very simple canopy — a plain pink sheet.

But the canopy bed with wrought iron trees wasn’t the only touch of nature: Two tables had leafy saplings for legs, and clusters of twigs for drawer pulls.

This forestal flight of imagination back in the seventies was created by interior designer Jay Steffy, who designed just about everything in the house,e except the homeowner’s handmade lotus needlepoint cushions.
