Build in Bedroom Storage
Floor-to-ceiling cabinets flanking the bed—roomy enough for Karen's sweaters, linens, and a twin set of shelves near the headboard to hold necessities—create a sleeping nook similar to those fitted into boats. The built-ins also act like big-scale architecture, giving the room structure. The mirror over the bed amplifies the room's dimensions.
