Actress, model, and author—let’s face it: Emily Ratajkowski is no stranger to making a statement. But when it comes to interior design, it looks like the multihyphenate has some learning to do. The Gone Girl star recently took to Instagram to post a particularly provocative series of photos—aka. ones with minimal clothing—from what we assume to be her bedroom. (She captioned the carousel, “Work from bed.”)
Her sexy shots aren’t the most surprising—EmRata is known to be a sultry shutterbug—but her bedroom is. A zoomed-out photo reveals that her boudoir consists of a frameless bed, two sconces, some candles, and…that’s it. That’s the bedroom. Make no mistake, we firmly believe good design lies in the eye of the beholder and that Ratajkowski can take a pared-back approach to her bedroom if she pleases. But as people who spend a lot of time looking at star-studded properties, this bedroom is simple by celebrity standards.
Of course, we weren’t the only ones who noticed the minimalist setup. “For centuries dudes are made fun of for sleeping on mattress on the floor,” one commenter joked. Another asked, “Where [are] your paintings on the wall?” Another kept it simple with, “You need a headboard.”

If we could act as Ratajkowski’s decorator—which, by the way, we are available! Emily, have your people call our people!—we’d double down on a neutral palette reimagined in soft, supple textiles: a bouclé bed frame, semisheer curtains, and luxe linen bedding, for starters. We’d keep the sconces but slip a set of floating nightstands underneath to bridge the gap between form and function. And to embrace Ratajkowski’s sexier side, we’d add some human form drawings. Sweet dreams are made of these.
