Choosing a space with such monstrous proportions was a challenge, to say the least. "The enormous windows were almost a deal breaker," laughs Barsanti. The solution? Neutral shutters to camouflage the windows, large-scale furnishings from the designers' HB Home collection for Kindel, and a combination of plain wallpaper above and wide stripes below. "It gives the room a more natural scale by lowering the sight line," explains Barsanti.
