In Small places I like to position a desk next to the bed. The tables don't have to be the same on either side - but should be the same height. Notice the Chinese bench at the end of the bed.This is the color palette in my own house. It's neutral enough that if I get board - I can change the accent colors.
The use of white in the canvas sofas or the patterned curtains softens the room. The use of the wicker blinds and/or screens give it a casual beachy feel. Also note the trunks used as coffee tables.
white white walls and white lamp
brown wicker chairs - skirted linen table in the back- white printed breezy curtains- rustic coffee tables - and of course, always add plants. They make a room feel alive.
Eclectic drama is added with the Zebra and cow prints. Also the dark golden painted walls. I would lighten up these rooms with cream linen curtains that can blow in the breeze and drape on the floor. Instead of the dark shades - I would add a light linen shade that will cast more light.
