But our passionate side demanded a splash of purple faux paint in the vanity area. The living room and the Jacuzzi facing the lake demand large windows for the wilderness view. The gas fireplace radiates a romantic flame and backup heat.
Design Tip: To give a feeling of greater space use vaulted trusses which raise the ceiling with negligible increased cost. Our dividing walls did not go all the way to the ceiling. This allows the ceiling fan to circulate the air through out the entire apartment and adds to the feeling of greater space. The top edge of the wall provides a convenient storage for my wife's heels, decorative plants and indirect rope lighting. We used false beams to stabilize the dividing wall. Mirrored closet doors also help create a larger than life feel for any room.
