The New Geometrics Trend

Layered textures and welcoming curves soften hard lines...

OVERSIZED

Gentle greens and painterly marks blur the edges for a calming retreat. A large painterly mural in a palette of muted greens sets the scene for soothing slumber, while a roomy bed, layered with complementary geometric prints and soft green linen, completes the restful scheme.
