Lanphier sketched out the design for the four-poster bed and had it custom built. He wanted something that was structurally thick, would bring some architecture to the room and would make the ceiling feel higher than it is. The wall covering adds an organic element. "We're in the heart of earthquake territory," Lanphier points out, "so I don't like hanging pictures above a bed. But I still wanted something graphic on that wall."The sculpture in the corner is from India and is one of the owner's favorite pieces. It inspired the turquoise bedspread, and Lanphier notes that the blue is also a good match with the cherry floors. The custom-built zebra-veneer nightstands have glass tops so that the collectibles on the shelf below are visible from above. The hanging lamp to the right is from Morocco, and Lanphier balanced it with an overscale lamp from Boyd Lighting that resembles a mannerist column.
