For this master bedroom, Interior Designers Nola Shivers and Heather Landolt took on the task of taking a boring brown and beige space and transforming it into a relaxing spa-like setting where the homeowners wanted to spend time. Landolt says there was a lot of empty space in the room before the remodel. The designers were able to take the space and create a suite, with the bedroom in one part and a living room-seating area in the other. The designers kept a spa-like atmosphere in mind when they chose to accent the tan and off-white colors with a light blue. Landolt says one of the most difficult aspects of the project was figuring out the lighting. Before, the room was very dark and the homeowner had trouble getting ready for the day. They overcame the darkness by accenting the room with light colors, mirrors and lamps.—B.H.
