Simple but thoughtful moves — such as the split boxes that flank the glass walls, creating the illusion of mirrored walls — underscore the fact that he has addressed the exterior park venue while creating a base for his jewel-box to sit on.

A small and simple throw pillow on the bed in a bold color like red, however, would have made the room "pop" a little more on camera (like a red flower in a field of grass), but this room is a real accomplishment nonetheless.
