Not only a place to lay your head, the bedroom serves as a sanctuary from the outside world. An intimate space, it is a sacred chamber for our keepsakes and duly displays our individual style in furniture and décor.

This personal haven, where we spend one-third of our lives, is often said to be the most challenging room to design, but you can rest easy, dreaming of endless ornamentation possibilities inspired by our finds.
