Welcome to Ulysses Room – one of the most beautiful event studio loft spaces in Washington DC

we built plant boxes around this dramatic skylight and planted them with ivy

The custom black-stained bar we designed and constructed. Above it are reclaimed-wood shelves filled with found objects

Virginia and I dip-dyed the curtains that were made by my aunt

We wanted a metal theme for the objects we selected: The bottom shelf is silver and crystal and the top shelf is brass plus a few antique books. We painstakingly collected these items from antique and thrift stores in the area

We planted ivy in this little silver sugar bowl to add a green organic touch to the dark shelves

Last week, we shared photos with you of the Ulysses Room launch party. Today, we’d like to show you all the details that make it special and unique. We worked together with our partners Virginia Arrisueño and Kelly Towles to transform the space into what you see in these photos. After months of hard work (building the bar from the ground up, electrical work, hanging from 13-foot-high beams to plant ivy) we are delighted with the results. Make sure you visit the Ulysses Room website for more information and future event information. Read more about the Ulysses Room mission in this feature in the Washington Post.
