Go bold or go home

I love the scale of the objects in this room designed by Matthew J. Lanphier. The round high-gloss white table on the animal-skin rug with the equally wide hanging lamp; then that great big star-burst mirror . Then further back into the room is the massive dark and shiny armoire acting like the sentry to the other furniture grouping.
The neutral colors are perfect for this room because the shapes of things are so strong. Lots of roundness ( the white half-chair and the legs of the coffee table and the globe in the background) but then some sharp lines ( the flat-screen television and the armoire) and texture ( the cashmere throw on the leather chair and the velvet sofa) all add up to a room you just want to be in.
