Originally, the wood-paneled stairwell leading up to this attic was extremely dark and dingy. Horizontal slats of whitewashed pine lighten up the stairwell and the attic walls, turning the space into a refreshing yoga studio. Now the stairwell wall serves as the central divider between the area designated for yoga sessions and the space meant for desk work.
