photo, the idea of all white a shadowed or colored simple image of a plant, drink etc behind the text would be amazing vs borders. i can down load some from shutter fly. this is one of my fave things in graphic design.
Open loft living area one side, closed bedroom other side? I like the open beams, but I wonder if they only look so good because of the extreme white everywhere else? I also think I like the idea of the loft being over the entrance.
