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) . Above: A painted wooden headboard, Kuba cloth pillows, and reading lamps at La Suite Cassis . Above: Two different bedrooms at the Suite Cassis feature black and green-painted headboards.
