The Solution: We gave them both what they wanted – dark curtains along a small windowed wall made the room seem bigger, yet the window stayed exposed to let in lots of light. Scott loved the cave-like feeling, while Mimi got her light.
Around the bed, we chose to have movable curtain panels suspended from the ceiling. On the inside, the curtains were a light cream color for Mimi, while the outside of the panel was a dark navy blue for Scott. The curtains created the look of a canopy bed, but the height kept the space feeling airy.
What They Needed: In this situation, the couple thought they would have to find a compromise and yet they didn't. Both got what they wanted in the bedroom without feeling that they had to each make a sacrifice to please the other.
