Janine Dowdle calls the master bedroom in her Hunt Valley Colonial-style home "a huge, uninviting, schizophrenic, green space."
"I have redecorated many other spaces in my house, but I have been avoiding this bedroom like a 6-year-old avoids vegetables," she said.
The room is an odd shape and the fireplace and the window seat make furniture placement difficult.
"It is kind of awkward." And, she concedes, the treadmill has got to go. On the other hand, the room has "French doors that lead to a balcony, a window seat, a gas fireplace - all beautiful elements that are not used to advantage."
