I love this bedroom by designer Matthew Patrick Smyth. It was featured on the cover of Elle Decor’s December 2005 issue and for good reason…the room and everything about it is absolutely stunning. I love the refined mix of prints and styles from all over the world. The headboard is made from pieces of the facade of an 18th century Moghul* home. The chandelier is European. The fabrics used on the pillows are from India and bring to mind the Les Indiennes fabrics that I blogged about yesterday. The rug and the suzani provide the perfect pops of color and the Moroccan bench, tables and trunks all add to this well polished room which defines global chic! Photo by Simon Upton.
