The master bedroom before
Christine's master bedroom, an uninspiring white rectangle with a tiny closet and ensuite, was a dumping ground for her family of six.
A dramatic result
"Dramatic and moody - but still cozy," says Christine of her modern black and white creation that balances girly artwork and accents with dark, masculine furniture. "It's always tit-for-tat in a bedroom," she says. "It's a piece you both have to feel good in."
At 14 by 17 feet with a small alcove for the door, the room is large but also long. A vintage settee at the foot of the bed shortens the distance between the two far walls. "Beforehand, it felt a bit like a bowling alley," says Christine.
