Hakarl and Jili have been busy transforming their bedroom since we photographed the apartment for our latest book–Apartment Therapy Presents: Real Homes, Real People, Hundreds of Design Solutions.

So enduring a learning process, and being in search of the unknown are not barriers for Hakarl, but rather welcome challenges. His latest update includes a subtle framing of the bedroom wall and bedroom windows via the ever useful tool known as painter’s tape. In fact, in order to ensure a straight edge, Hakarl decided to make the white lines out of tape that remain part of the permanent design.

And, rather than a simple bedside lamp, Hakarl took it up a notch, literally, and hung a beautiful glass pendant (from Home Depot of all places!), from the ceiling. The original lamp had a green bulb inside which Hakarl easily replaced.

You’ll recognize these framed posters from Hakarl and Jili’s Small Cool 2006 contest entry of their previous apartment. Their layered arrangement on an Ikea cabinet, with a mixed but same colored set of pottery, lends an exquisite, clean-lined, and calming vignette.
