I'm a big fan of symmetry and love using matching nightstands and a pair of lamps beside a bed. However, sometimes the unexpected can add a little pizazz to a space, giving the room some personality and visual interest.
Liz Williams did. It's a very fresh and crisp green, especially paired with the bright white walls. Also, another unexpected touch is the basket-like piece above the bed (any idea what it is?). It adds some depth to the room with a touch of a deeper brown hue.
