To give the bedroom a distinctive French flair, Winship rasterizes (a process whereby a photo is enlarged, then broken down into tiny little dots) a poster of a famous French actress to hang over the bed.

To soften up the look of the minimalist bedroom, a headboard cozy is slipped right over the existing headboard. Black lace pillow shams go over bright-pink pillowcases for a peek-a-boo effect.
Table and Chairs
Winship got his inspiration for a semi-faux painted accent table from a Parisian hotel. The tabletop is a wooden half-round fastened to the wall, and the base of the table and two of the three vases are painted on the wall. Two side chairs have been upholstered with monogrammed terrycloth to provide a fun, personalized look.

Black feathers are glued to a hanging hat-shaped light.
For a bold, graphic statement, capiz shells are glued onto a piece of black masonite—reminiscent of springtime rain.
