Yesterday's posts skewed toward the feminine, so this morning I needed to inject something masculine. Nothing says gentlemanly more than the late Bill Blass' iconnic chocolate-brown-and-white Connecticut bedroom. Recently, it was the inspiration behind a Hollywood Hills bachelor pad decorated by Mary McDonald.
In the last few years dark rich walls with crisp white trim have become trendy; I think it's interesting to see a seriously timeless room done in this way.
