Extract from Susanna's sketchbook for an 18th century inspired Cinderella

Extract from my sketchbook for an 18th century inspired Cinderella

"I completly fell in love with this bed when I saw it. The whole structure is covered with rich blood red velvet and was displayed at the V&A in very subdued lighting which added to the drama. Origionally created for Melville house in Fyfe c1700 it was comissined by George Melville. This is a very rare state bed which was largly unused and was made in such an opulent way to attract visiting royalty to stay with the Melville family."
