Bed & Breakfast is a sitcom, set up in a rural holyday residence in the Tuscan countryside. The main characters are the manager of the B&B, his wife, the gardener and the sexy chambermaid. For this low budget production Susanne Ratschiller took care of all the art department tasks: production design, art direction, prop master and set decorator.
As the holyday residence was plenty furnished the main job was space planning: instead of randomly crammed objects, Susanne chose pieces that fitted well together and, with some added accessory, she created harmonious and well-balanced shooting areas, maintaining a common thread. Due to her outstanding ability to combine and reinvent things, she managed to keep the total expenses for sets and props near zero.
