Exotic Prints Pop in Monica Kahn’s Neutral Master Bedroom

A soft palette gives zebra-print frames and patterned bedding room to thrive.



If it looks as though this room was designed with an extra-personal touch, it’s because the designer is also the owner. “We used a neutral palette of beiges with ethnic fabrics and zebra mirrors, inspired by travels to Africa and Asia, as accents,” says designer Monica Kahn. 

 
 
Whitlock: Sense of exotic but not overly done.
 
Buscarello: The strong rectangular feel of the pieces is nicely softened through the colors and textures. Not too feminine, not too masculine—overall quite harmonious!
 
Kossar: Symmetry, dark furniture, and light-colored walls make for a dramatic but restful space.
 
Mintz: A bit of a “walk on the wild side” with an animal print on the mirrors on either side of the bed, in a space effectively using very light tones trimmed with very dark ones to give dramatic contrast.
