House Tour: Salvador Dali Room at the Artists Inn Residence

The Salvador Dali room at the Artists Inn Residence Bed and Breakfast in Dupont Circle is so fantastic we had to devote an entire tour to the one room and bath. The walls are hand-painted in a surreal Dali-like mural. The custom-made bed features a one-of-a-kind melting clock sculpture based on by Salvador Dali's painting "The Persistence of Memory". More on the room and its resources below the jump...

A flat-screen TV pops out of the headboard and the mural continues on the back of the TV! The bathroom features a huge bath in the center of the room. Each bathroom wall has circle-shaped windows with remote-controlled window-shades.

Who knew Dali could be so dreamy?

We admire Artists Inn Residence owner Terry Gerace's creative design ideas and combinations. He is not afraid to combine antiques and museum-quality items with standard items from chain stores.
