This is the most significant bed room that Diane Mohamed has at any time experienced, and owing to the sloped ceiling, the most hard to adorn. “It looked cavernous, cold, and characterless,” claims the founder of MOMO Interior Style. Mohamed understood she’d will need to go daring, but was also committed to a predominantly black and white palette. “I required to continue to be neutral for the longer lasting merchandise, then provide in color with equipment so I can swap them out from time to time,” she says. Her selections did the trick. “Every time I open the door, it provides me contentment,” she claims.

1 The shag rug is a neutral foundation with plenty of persona. “When the sunlight hits it, there’s a attractive shimmer,” Mohamed notes.

2 The bedding, which involves a crushed velvet comforter from West Elm and sheepskin pillows from Report, delivers the sole moments of shade. “The clashing mustard accents are unexpected and maintain the dusty rose from feeling way too feminine,” Mohamed claims.

3 “Even although it’s not a midcentury dwelling, midcentury fashionable home furnishings is nevertheless my go-to,” Mohamed suggests, referring to the nightstands. The minimalist table lamps from CB2 draw the eye further than the decals, widening the graphic influence.

4 The asymmetric arrangement of shelves allows for flexibility. “Since the center shelf is extended than the leading a single, I can mix in taller issues like a vase with branches,” the designer suggests.

5 Stylized flower decals by Wall Star Graphics were Mohamed’s beginning position. “I’m a substantial lover of [fashion designer] Orla Kiely and these have her vibe,” she says. “The curves stability the square windows and tricky angles.”

6 The capiz chandelier is spectacular devoid of adding coloration and its geometric form enhances the organic decals. “I would have preferred to dangle it lessen, but I really don’t want the young ones to harm it when they jump on the bed,” the designer states with a chuckle.
