Chattanooga Urban Inn: Room 26

It's been so much fun designing these rooms as we go along.

Rearranging the room allowed for the two natural focal points - the head of the bed, and those marvelous windows - to work together. The linen draperies catch the light and let…

Room 28 is a bit Gentleman meets Elle…
