Brian is a former downhill skier who spent much of his life hitting the slopes, traveling around the globe and competing in four Olympics. But since marrying and starting a family, his life has changed dramatically, and his home decor is no exception.
Take his third-floor master bedroom. More like an outdated ski lodge than a bedroom, the space had been rustic and masculine, complete with lots of pine and heaps of plaid. While the dated design may have suited a bachelor, it didn't appeal to wife Heather, whose tastes tended toward the glamorous and elegant.
The couple called me in to see if I could find a "his-and-hers" design solution, and I called on my crew and got set to sync the masculine with the feminine.
