This 1970s room was said to have had Indo-Afro harem ambience, which was interior designer Jay Spectre’s way of giving distinctive pizzazz to a standard apartment bedroom in a vintage co-op home.

The decor of this pink and red 70s bedroom was one brilliant mélange of peppery hot colors, a mix of exotic patterns, all done with fabrics, most of them echt Oriental.

There were a spate of rich textures — quilted, embroidered, appliqued — the whole scene doubled in a total wall of mirror that serves as a headboard.

But note the discipline that pulls the mixture off: the striped stretch fabric covering walls and ceiling was run diagonally, so that its mirrored reflection became geometrically trim mitered corner, and a pattern in itself.

A subtle indentation in the mirror wall formed the bed niche, and the night table was entirely mirrored, making it almost invisible.

Essentially the room was quite uncluttered, as such a pattern-happy room had to be if it’s to avoid a hodge-podge look.
