Dark & Masculine Bedroom Design

Deep colours and textures offer drama.

A variety of patterned and coloured textiles add levity to the smoky palette of stylist Arren Williams' bedroom. The headboard was upholstered in a metallic linen, which adds sparkle and height to the space, while brightening the overall look. Pops of colour such as the red enamel side table and ochre-hued chair enliven the space in an unexpected way.
