Set above the property's steep embankment, the master bedroom almost feels like a tree house. The corner glazing provides a clear view, and allows the room to be enveloped by trees. "I want to be modest enough to know that the building itself — the object — isn't the end result," says Alter. "It's about creating a compelling environment."
"Track." When windows go from floor to ceiling and you have little or wall space, use a ceiling-mounted drapery track like in this shot. These draperies glide along the ceiling in perfect unison when opening and closing.Tip: The drapery track is considered a touch more contemporary in design, so if you are more of a traditionalist, you might want to consider blinds.
