Through out my college career, I have resided in the dormitories. It becomes difficult to work and find peace in the small, shared spaces. I decided to make my own idea of home and comfort, a canopy, to find refuge. This is a canopy was inspired by bird nests. Birds have meticulously built homes that are confined yet provide protection comfortably.
Appropriately, I used a tradition bird’s eye twill for the pattern construction. There are hand printed wooden beads embedded through out the design to simply suggest ‘nesting’. The half-canopy is designed for a twin-sized bed with the dorm resident in mind. It is applicable to any wall surface without damage. Once rolled, it is easily stored for travel.
