Serene Retreat

Soothing colors in large expanses are relaxing; the walls and the rug envelop you in calming greens. Bedding is all one lavender-cream thought. Symmetry feels upscale and organized. Wall sconces keep night tables uncluttered, minimizing visual stress. Shiny surfaces add glamour; mirrors, satiny bedding, and silver fixtures reflect light. Tactile luxuries, like quilted silk-blend bedding and a faux-fur throw, signal sumptuousness and elevate the scene.
