The Master Retreat is where you spend most of your time, so it is important that it be one of the most thoughtfully designed areas of your home.
From lighting to views, what you see when you wake up in the morning can set the tone for your whole day. Jose Cardenas pays meticulous attention to the simplest steps in your morning ritual, such as noting which side you will wake up on, and what is the first thing you will see when you open your eyes. Are you an early riser? If so, then the lighting must be adjusted so that it reflects your lifestyle. If you tend to get out of bed later, then how will the sunlight enter the room and what effect will that have on your morning ritual?
Jose Cardenas puts an intense focus on Dressing Rooms. Closets are last century's concept, and they no longer work for today's lifestyle. Your Dressing Room is where you go and shop every morning for your next appearance. If you have an organized place to start your dressing routine, it will be more enjoyable and more efficient. We spend a lot of time in the dressing room. We choose color and style for the day. When we're right there, looking at the mirror, we are deciding what message we want to send.
