Why we love this pic: This gorgeous bedroom has a lot to teach minimalists about how to cultivate a compelling design without the clutter. This space's artful use of texture and patterns — from the geometric headboard to the natural wood nightstand to the faux-fur rug — ensures that the design is packed with visual interest without loads of clutter-making decor.
