I love the softness of the sand in this photo by Alan Keohane, the color and texture of it and the play of shadows.
This bed needs to be softened up. Imagine this: take away the zebra pillows, replace with some Suzani Pillows like the one below and billowy white gauze draperies floating at the windows and a big bouquet of pink bougainvillea in a vase on the night stand. Oh and add to that picture a slowly turning ceiling fan (Casablanca style).
I see wonderful Moorish style windows to look out.
Beside the bed on the cool tile a carpet placed at slight angle.
