For this master bedroom in a northern suburb of New York City, interior design Brian McCarthy created a fantasy of flowers, from the bedskirt and the carpet to the tromp l'oeil trim. "And because the room is a beautiful Louis XVI boiserie, the intention was to use furniture with a painted sensibility, as well," he says.

While the room's two nightstands are similar in sensibility, they are anything but standard. Picture above is a Louis XV piece from the south of France, dating back to the 18th century and painted in soft, soothing colors that coordinate with the rest of the room. The other is a painted French table in a more neoclassical shape.

Brian gave the pretty detailwork more prominence (it's the first thing you notice upon entering the room) by placing this table along the bed, instead of perpendicular to its long side. This gave his client a more generous surface within reach, too. "By placing the table this way, you gain more access to the table for anything you might want or need when you get in bed," he says.
