Another mirror concept coming soon to homes can be found already in stores. A specially made full‐length mirror superimposes clothing on your reflection creating the illusion that you’re wearing the selected item of clothing.

One example is the EON Interactive Mirror which has already been installed in mall clothing stores.The system uses Microsoft’s Kinect technology which was created for gaming and repurposed for retail marketing. As you can see the illusion is pretty good.

Although I mentioned not wanting to buy expensive art to get tripped over I have no problem with it being displayed on the wall. The piece shown in this image is so gorgeous and really sets the mood for the room. Nightstand space comes at a premium. Books clocks and phones all vie for room. Bedding is expensive especially once you find the perfect duvet pillow shams throw pillows and so on. I've often thought of a neutral color scheme as being boring and safe. When I think of custom drapery my mind often envisions heavy fabric overpowering a room. Area rugs are often used to tie a space together. I love how this rug is the room's focal point. Generally speaking most nightstands are round or square. Who says you have to follow those rules?

Unlike in a kitchen a living area or a den private papers and materials stay private in a bedroom and distractions tend to be fewer. The trick of course is to create an office that doesn't disrupt a bedroom's restful feel or take up more than its share of space. These homeowners and design pros have managed to come up with a happy middle ground. Take a look at how they made it work. A desk takes the place of a nightstand in this bedroom yet it blends in so smoothly that it doesn't immediately read as a work area. Keeping the finish and style consistent with the bed helps to integrate the two visually and the large piece of artwork mounted above takes some of the focus off the computer. This setup takes a similar tack. Trimming out the bulletin board with molding helps it to feel like a thoughtful part of the design rather than an incidental. Bedrooms are often designed so that windows flank the most natural spot to orient the bed which can make furniture placement tricky. If yours is the same way choose a low desk that won't obscure the sunlight and the views. The key to this bedroom office: the glam mirrored desk which blends into the space because of its reflectivity. Although it's perfectly functional stylish accents mask its workhorse side.

Here's a peek into the sleeping quarters common areas and open grounds where they're staying. Jonathan Edwards Olympic gold medalist and chair of the Athletes' Committee within the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games worked with a panel of architects interior designers and other athletes to implement additions in the apartments.

Remains of the Games is already selling furnishings fixtures and equipment to interested buyers. You can purchase what's called the Athletes' Bedroom 4‐Piece Set (including a bed a mattress a night table and a nightlight) for only $150. "So many people want a piece of the Olympics and they're just mad about games memorabilia " says Paul Levin a marketing executive at Remains of the Games.

"This paper was installed as a feature wall and grounded the rest of the room's lighter tones by adding a little drama " she says.
