Elegant Pool Pavilion
Designer Vern Yip makes over a porch and creates bedroom storage for a generous organ donor.

The homeowners are completely surprised to find that designer Vern Yip has revamped their master bedroom. Vern starts by tearing off the wallpaper and giving the walls a two-tone treatment. The lower portion of the walls are painted green and the upper portion is painted amber. Green, one-inch horizontal stripes are then painted in the upper portion. Horizontal stripes make a room look wider and a little like it is in motion. The bed is reoriented to provide more space for a new, freestanding closet. Display shelves with glass doors are hung behind the bed giving the homeowners a place to showcase their keepsakes. New bedside lamps, silk bedding and rich window treatments add the finishing touches.
