A look this strong and elegant is simple. Rule number one: Don't be afraid of the dark! We start with black and brown on the woods, deep charcoal on the walls and the spectacular, customizable city map above the bed. We add white trim, chair rail, and moldings to balance it out. The bed's hand-applied gilding informed the choice of linens, which weave gold, black, and white together in a luxurious stylized paisley.
