In this modern-style bedroom with European overtones, two companion fabrics in cranberry red and white were splashed in bold, positive strokes against an almost totally white background.
The bedspread on the contemporary polished stainless steel four-poster bed was Everfast’s “Adagio,” the pattern design copied from the ivory-inlaid keyboard panel of a 300-year-old Flemish harpsichord.
Its companion striped version, “Largo,” was used for the canopy, headboard curtain and window shades. The lines drew the eye upward, emphasizing the room’s vertical dimension.
There was also a lot of plastic at play in this bedroom. For example, on either side of the bed were black Plexiglas cubes that served as nightstands, and on each of those was a white plastic mushroom-shaped lamp. In front of the couch sat a cylindrical red molded plastic telephone table.
The flooring in this bedroom was vinyl tiling in a simple white brick pattern with wide grey “grout” lines.
Another texture featured repeatedly in this room was fur — in this case, it happened to be real. On the bed was a guanaco throw that was lined with velvet, and on the deep-buttoned dark blue corduroy loveseat, there was a round fur pillow of long hair Borrego lamb and a Lynx-head fur pillow.
In keeping with the plush style, the area rug on the side of the bed was a Swedish Flax Deluxe Rya Weave rug in off-white.
