In the first room, contemporary furnishings mix with timeworn artwork. On the bed, a plethora of pillows and a down comforter bring comfy contrast to the bed’s sharp edges. Above the headboard, a ledge allows for a unique display of artwork. Swing-arm sconces provide convenient lighting for a bedtime read while freeing up night-table space.

In the last room, beige tones are offset with rich wood and bold blue pillows, while a mahogany divider grounds the bed and partitions off the sitting room.  Not only does this partition wall separate the sitting area from the bed area, it also functions as an oversized headboard for the bed.
