Today, I’m sharing our master bedroom and other spaces in our home that improve access for us into our old age.
Part of our building green philosophy is to build a house that we could live in for the rest of our lives. To that end, we have built all the essentials on one floor: kitchen, bathroom, living, dining, and even our deck and rooftop garden are on the same level.
If we are ever mobility-challenged, we have a level access to this main floor from a vehicle, 36″ wide doors and hallways, smooth wood floors,
Our vertical and horizontal surfaces are spare, almost Shaker-simple, partly to reduce the amount of cleaning required. This built-in storage unit, built by our cabinet-maker to our specs, incorporates dressers, bookshelves, reading lights, storage, and even a short closet for shirts and trousers. It is the same (two-sided) unit as in the bathroom.
Our decor is not fussy – in the daytime and even at night, our main focus is outside, where we have all the greenery and visual interest we could want. (Although, as an artist, I certainly appreciate art on the walls.)
I’m sharing this post with these generous party hosts:
