Five years ago, Meral Karasulu's home was a dingy 1,000-square-foot apartment in downtown Washington, DC. She wanted a modern backdrop for her Italian furniture and art collection with a state-of-the-art dream kitchen and an Asian-inspired bedroom and bath. After a year of renovations (and three contractors), the apartment has been completely transformed into an open, airy, Zen-like space.
Sometimes you have to listen to your architect. Karasulu resisted, but was happy hers insisted on this simple wall with niches, which sets the tone for the room. A restful bedroom means no clutter.
