DRAMA. One glance at this masterpiece of theatricality, and you'd guess there's an entire manor house to go with it. Instead, the mirror is crowning a 350-square-foot apartment.
Edit, edit, edit. Even in the photos, you can feel how small this space is, but Bees' use of symmetry and matched objects isn't rigid, but freeing - it gives a sense of place and order.
A banquet-like corner is carved out of a well-placed screen, concealing the bed, and a table that's both for dining and coffee. Hanging art on room dividers is one of my favorite tricks; it gives a screen or bookcase instant credibility. "Hey!" it says. "I have a picture hanging on me! I must be a wall!"
A man and his (foo) dog. Are those the red ones from C. Wonder?

What a lovely apartment. I'm inspired to go get organized - and maybe paint another wall green. :)
This instantly reminded me of your apartment! I am loving all things emerald right now and this little space certainly packs a very stylish punch! Love all those stacks of books!
Very well done! It is the right green. Green is a tough color and his use of this one in this space is great!
Happy New Year!
Hi there, after I learned whose little green office I pinned, I just had to stop by, and I just love your blog! I too saw this spread on Matthew Bees and fell in love with his space -- which I think is both masculine and warm and a little Miles Redd, don't you think? I adore that screen he used to hide is bed. Well I am off to check out the rest of your lovely blog! Bravo and happy new year, Amal. : )
Think he'd let me house sit?
Thanks of much for the feature! I do love my green walls. Just FYI the color is Rainforest Foliage from Benjamin Moore and the Foo Dogs are an inexpensive Target find! Kindest - MB
It really looks awesome Matt.
