A modern wallpaper works well here as it is a subtle design in the same colours used in the rest of the room.

Lamps with bamboo shades and metal legs, an ethnic figure, pictures with over-sized frames and roses in a glass are decorative touches.
Bedroom with ensuite bathroom
A giant leather bed balances the large room, layered with Deschamps and wool throws from Ede & Nia.
