Tailored Chamber

Sultry and sleek, this room has a crispness that stimulates order (you’ll put away your boots) and yet, somehow, abandon. Eye-catching geometric art sets the tone for the space, synching perfectly with the pillows (squares everywhere). A triple hit of ovals (mirror, table lamp, and chair) contributes to the pulled-together effect. One bold color in a room of neutrals feels dramatic. Dark gray walls make the graphic bedding pop. Polished modern choices―a duvet cover that brings refinement to sensuous down, a sophisticated bench (choose one that’s smaller than the width of the bed), and square instead of rectangular pillows―all give the impression that a decorator has been on the premises. Intimate lighting ups the mystery of a room. Both fixtures, placed higher than the bed, cast a soft glow. Lower-wattage pink-tinted bulbs make everyone look great.
