Of course, there's no missing the zebra print sofa, which really livens up the soothing space. A flokati rug brings in a splash of whimsy, which is tempered by a clean-lined, contemporary coffee table. Flowering branches bring nature in and provide the crowning design touch to the space.

It's hard to tell the more beautiful art in the room: the modern pieces on the wall, or the expansive windows! While this space looks polished, it also feels inviting and comfortable, thanks to the plush flokati rug and the casually placed pillows. The sofa is large enough to lounge with a good book, and the glass-topped coffee table creates utility without overwhelming the clean room.

Master Bedroom Features Curved Corner Bed & Graphic, Upholstered Bench
