atla-082608-lowell01.jpgWe've been talking a lot about escaping this month. Coming home, energized, our suitcase packed with souvenirs from our travels, we want to hold on to that vacation feeling for as long as possible. Recreating the feeling of a great hotel room in your own home is one way to do it...

Christopher Lowell's "Work That Room," finds the inspiration for its makeovers in hotels. Taking its cue from a different hotel in each episode, Lowell suggests ways to recreate the look at home, from where to find the furniture to what paint to use to tricks to visually enhance your space. Whether you actually got to escape this month or are just hoping to close the door and escape from the world for a few minutes, you might want to consider some of his suggestions to make your home into the retreat of your dreams.
