NFL player Duane Brown and radio personality Devi Brown have visited many exotic places, yet their favorite place to be is at home with each other.

This loft bedroom features primarily neutral tones — except for the eye-catching skull art. The bed, draped in a dark duvet cover, feels extended, expanded and even more lush with the addition of a similarly colored area rug below. A clever perforated wall separates the bedroom from the closet without disrupting the feel and flow of the loft.
