Steal This Look: An Uncluttered Bedroom in Tokyo – Remodelista

Fog Linen founder Yumiko Sekine lives in a three-level house in Tokyo designed in a palette of unfinished concrete, stainless steel, and oak. The first and second floors are intended for friends and staff of Fog Linen (many of the Fog Linen photo shoots happen here as well). Opening out to the garden on the first level is a decidedly minimalist bedroom featuring a rollaway bed frame paired with fine linen. Here we detail the key elements of the look for adopting in the guest room or main bedroom.
