All About

The Solution
Interior designer Brice Cooper and design coordinators Kelly Edwards and Ali Azhar devise a cool, comfortable hangout for the Burkes and their guests. The plain white walls are painted a soothing blue, which complements the hardwood floors. A new walnut workstation is nestled between the two bookcases that used to be on either side of the bed on the opposite wall. Frosty window treatments add to the cool, relaxing feel of the room.
