All About

The first challenge the 11 designers faced was to turn an empty Las Vegas penthouse into their own living space. They had 28 work hours over three days and a budget of $15,000 to complete the project.

Great space planning and the creation of personal space through the utilization of sheers flanking either side of each bed allow many people to inhabit a small space effectively. Christina and Adriana also effectively create balance with their color and bedding choices. The custom art above each bed demonstrates how even graphic artwork can help demarcate personal space.
