The master suite encourages a healthy balance of priorities. "The wall color doesn't exactly match anything in this room, and because of that, it makes everything stand out," says Mitchell. A draped bed buffers the hectic outside world. Twin chaises offer respite, and a desk serves as a handy work surface. "People often don't put as much effort into decorating the bedroom, because they think they don't live in it," says Mitchell. "But I can see kids relaxing here with their parents, reading or watching television."
