Steal This Look: A Midcentury Modern Bedroom on the French Riviera

July 17, 2012

A while back we featured La Suite Cassis, a small guest house in an ancient fishing village off the Mediterranean coast, and we’ve been admiring the exotic bedrooms ever since.

Cassis-based, German stylist and guest house owner Herbert Hufnagel was looking to blend midcentury minimalism with tribal prints and blocks of bold color in his design. Recreate the laid-back, summery look with the following elements (to see more of the hotel, go to Hotels & Lodging: La Suite Cassis in France).
