Join Interior Designer Chat Tuesday December 10, 2013 for our topic: Designing The Master Bedroom.  The most interesting bedrooms express the passions of the homeowners, from art to travel.  A master bedroom is the most personal space in the home, so naturally bedrooms are designed often, as the stuff dreams are made of. Designing a master bedroom for clients is often the job of designing a private retreat. With today’s fast paced business life, often clients want their master bedrooms to reflect their own private piece of Heaven.  Join #IntDesignerChat on Twitter Tuesday December 10, and share Bedroom decorating and design ideas: from artsy to exotic at 6pm EST, 5pm CST, 3pm PST, and 11p GMT.
