Arren's room design takes all of the potential negatives of the space and turns them into positives. Going with a deep dark wall color and low slung furnishings feel like definite decisions that fit the style of the space instead of just "fixes". My favorite touch is the wrap around curtain; the strong vertical stripe patter adds the illusion of height while echoing the shape of the sectional - a nice touch!
