The open, uncluttered set up of this bedroom brings an industrial, modern influence to the contemporary design. The polished floor reflects the natural light from the pair of windows as well as the light fixture within the three-blade ceiling fan. A quilted gray bed comforter matches the flooring and is accented with a faux fur pillow. Abstract art gives a pop of vibrant red and pink color.

Unify the space by matching a muted blue wall color with quilted bed linens to add texture, but keep the pops of color from overpowering the room.
