This catalog of spaces includes 10 relatively-simply designed bedrooms in suburban, single-family homes; four college dorm rooms—two overly crowded with roommates and furniture, and two small yet cozy single rooms; one unique studio apartment; and two bedrooms shared with my future husband.
The project is based on my memories of these 17 bedrooms and a perceived accuracy of their scale. I began by measuring all dimensions of my current bedroom, Roland, as well as the furniture included in the space. Roland’s measurements determined the relative scale of the sixteen other rooms. While the illustrations are to scale (1 inch=4 feet), the rooms’ actual dimensions, Roland being the exception, are subject to inaccuracies. Without the availability of the actual rooms, the depicted spaces are approximations based on my recollections of the spaces.
