iron beds
can often look
too shabby chic

i have one.
my friend has one.
my sister has one.

and we all
agree that there
is a fine line when
it comes to iron beds.

it can make a
room look like
a sanitarium.


a good example
of an iron bed used in a
more contemporary context

not too shabby
and not too slick

just right.

it's all about
warm earth tones

Earth tones. I agree. As long as grey counts. Grey and sage thrill me to know end.
