Having the color white as part of the main palette of your bedroom can create a timeless feel of elegance and modernity.
The latest Goop features The Guest Apartment - the challenge: to transform an expansive but frill-free space above the garage into a cozy and fully outfitted guest apartment (or teen exile) – on a budget.”

The room is planned out with functional areas: desk, sleeping, reading chair etc. I like how they kept the bed really simple with a white tufted headboard, white bedding and a heathered gray blanket draped across the bottom. Any pattern on the bed would have made the room look too busy. The wallpaper is the “wow” statement-maker so the rest should be pretty low key! I love the mid-century style bedside tables, you can get similar tables with white marble tops at Overstock.com! This style is modeled after the Saarinen Table by Knoll designed by Eero Saarinen in the 1950s. The real ones are rather expensive, so it is good that there are a lot of replicas out there.

This month’s Architectural Digest features Julianna Margulies and Keith Lieberthal’s Soho apartment, with interior design by Vicente Wolf. I especially like the serene master bedroom, a lovely mix of Asian and mid-century modern styles.

The light fixture is stunning, it looks like a layered Japanese umbrella. Other dashes of Asian style are the carved wood sideboard, wood chest of drawers and the buddha statue.
The chair and ottoman look to be the Eero Saarinen for Knoll, Womb Chair set upholstered in a nice light gray.
