The before photos are pretty ugly but that's where it all starts. Designers are invited to see the house and fill out an application showing our design concept for any rooms we're interested in transforming.
The bedroom and bath I chose required a very creative solution and that attracted me. I imagined a suspended bed in one corner of the room. The committee loved the idea and said yes. The photo above shows the finished bed. My vision was to suspend the bed with pipe fittings for an industrial look that hadn't ever been done. My partner, Don Boline of Concept Builders, built the bed by hand. Be sure to see in-process photos on the additional pages of this story.
The ceiling was highlighted with handpainted stripes. At first the owners said no to this idea and we proceeded knowing we might have to repaint the ceiling after the show. Fortunately, the owners were happy with the finished room.
