the art of modern relaxation

It's rainy and gloomy here in New England this morning—a perfect day to laze in bed with an adorable pup or two to keep you company. Heaven!

But what I really love about this room is how it embodies a modern, relaxed mood.

{what's modern}
1. super-long, low-profile custom headboard
2. wide mats, skinny white frames

{what's relaxed}
1. upholstered headboard
2. quilted shams
3. art leaning, not hung
4. pets on your bed!

I think the abs make it, tee-hee. Seriously, sometimes modern loses its warmth, but not here. This is the perfect balance of modern and comfort.

I'm sorry, what did you say? I'm still staring at those abs!

I wondered if my hubby would mind if I hung something similiar behind our bed?? Lol!
I do love the leaning art...and the dogs!
A beautiful pic!

That room looks so cozy on a rainy day! I love the bedding! Oh and the picture behind it doesn't hurt either! ;)
