a closer look: The ingredients that go into this style mix:
Gallery white walls and a simple concrete floor let the furnishings and art shine
Big, totally oversized (possibly Pucci ?) pillows make a statement on the bed and easily replace a formal headboard
The cowhide rug echoes the brown/black accents elsewhere in the room (lamps, dresser)
The scale of the bed is big, bold and cushy
Artwork (that looks like it could be by Alexander Calder) which repeats the color story from the pillows is placed casually on the floor next to the dresser
A great cluster of framed photos and prints takes up the whole side wall - the varied frames add visual interest
A plummy purple quilt adds just the right slightly discordant note to the orange, black, brown and white theme
A retro-ish standing lamp in chrome works well with both the black and white photos and the mirrored piece hanging above the bed.
