CREATE A GLORIOUS MASTER SUITE
Cold winter months bring out our natural (and naturally imposed) tendency to “nest” and bask in
beautiful interior surroundings. Rather than traveling to a luxury spa to be pampered by strangers,
Paul Feiten of Paul Feiten Design shares his tips for creating a peaceful retreat in the privacy of
your own home.
|To create the hotel suite and “spa” feeling, introduce a
comfortable seating area for relaxing. A muted damask patterned
carpet and soft blue walls add serenity to this space that adjoins
the master bath.
One emerging design
trend he has witnessed
is for homeowners to
create a luxurious master
appointed with fixtures
and design elements
typically found in five-
star hotels, in their own
homes. Using existing
space within their homes,
Paul often transforms
what used to be spare
bedrooms and closets
to create 1,000 sq. ft.
and larger bedroom
retreats that include
sofa seating areas,
large screen televisions,
oversized soaking and
whirlpool tubs, saunas
“My clients return home from their travels and ask for master suites that can provide resort
accommodations on a daily basis," he said. "I transform underused space into areas that clients look
forward to retreating to at the end of a hectic day.”
|Consider a double sided vanity
and mirror (instead of the usual
wall mounted options) to provide
an unconventional solution for a
two-person bath. In addition, tall
commercial windows with soft
shades can help to let in light
while still providing privacy.
|Design your bath for in-home “spa styled” pampering.
