The warm, balanced exotic style of this bedroom satisfies the client's mixed tropical family background and need for serenity and harmony. The steel tables are made with a natural raw patina and covered with semi-gloss lacquer finish. The Nelson wall sconces offer an architectural element as well as a functional lighting piece, which provides bright or diffuse lighting. The dark coffee-colored walls balance out with the light honey bamboo flooring, light cream rug and vanilla window treatment. The exotic fish tank is visible from the bedroom through a small opening for added enjoyment.

This guestroom has a seashell motif that is neutralized by a small leopard print fabric that adds a touch of exotic. The 10-foot-high gauzy fabric canopy creates the feeling of a far away island retreat. Photograph by Cynthia MacDonald.
Classic neutral colors and playful details make this bedroom a tropical paradise.
Nineteenth-century furnishings are the centerpiece of this dramatic room. The colonial bed, covered in antique Indian silk, is from a palace in Rajasthan, India; the capiz screen, with pressed and etched glass insets, is from the Philippines.
