A large rustic wood headboard with a carved foliage design is the centerpiece of this lovely bedroom in done neutral tones by designer Sandra Espinet. "Different combinations of fabrics are very important if you are going to go all neutral in a room," says Espinet. "A textured rug, silk pillows, even in the same cream tone, will look different. Mixing the same color in different textures creates a unique feel."

The design goal for this master bedroom? A restful retreat that would pay homage to the owners' love of travel via industrial, modern and subtly glam elements. Dark colors and a cloud-inspired ceiling make the space moody and dramatic. Texture (shag rugs, velvet, metallics) bring in that desired luxe touch.
