Here, in a 1960s room of romantic serenity, where the vintage canopy bed (or tester bed) rose almost architecturally from floor to ceiling.

Plain linen bed curtains were lined with the same print that covered the wall — a red and white luxury fabric from Spanish fashion designer Mariano Fortuny.

When this room’s look and feel was created back in 1965, interior designer Tony Duquette said he believed a decorator’s privilege was to help clients realize their own individuality, in surroundings that delight and sometimes surprise the eye.

Full-height wall fabric at each side of the bed was actually applied to floor-length roller shades that covered long windows, creating restful duskiness.

The bed throw was luxurious alpaca, while the floor was covered in a thick pale grey carpet. In the corners, mirrored panels, taken from a screen, gave the space glitter and depth.

An antique upholstered bench at at the end of the bed, covered in the same fabric, to complete the look.
