I am now featuring the last room of my downstairs, which happens to be “my retreat” that is my Master Bedroom retreat. This room is about us as a couple. I highly recommend to anyone who is decorating their Master Bedroom to just have items that represent you as a couple no kid’s pictures or their things allowed in this space.
I designed this with all customized pieces, starting with the upholstered bed I designed from a variety of beds I liked but just weren’t the right style for what I wanted. I worked with my custom upholstered to design it so it fit my specialty mattress. I opted to paint the walls and ceiling in a soft relaxing wonderful blue from Benjamin Moore, Brittany Blue and I found a carpet that matched and I had the carpet bound and custom sized to fit the space. The bedding is a washable velvet from Lili Alessandra and accented with a custom pillow I had made to mixed it up a bit.
The nightstands were ones I had from a while ago. I liked the shape and the drawers so I opted to have them custom painted to go with the color scheme of the room. My lamps are from Circa Lighting – I fell in love with them as soon as I saw them along with the chandelier, love the shapes.
The flower above the bed is from Etsy. I had been seeing paper flowers a lot lately and wanted a peony, one of my favorite flowers, to give it something different for above my bed. I had it framed in plexi shadow box frame with a fabric backing that matched the wall color to hide the hooks. I wanted to break up the long narrow bedroom so I opted for picture moldings flanked on each side of the bed and papered it within the molding to give a more elegant touch. I used a dotted wallcovering that has a metallic finish.
The shelved wall was this odd recessed area that needed more than just a flat piece of art. I wanted a place to tell the story of us so I refinished Pottery Barn wall shelves and had them custom matched to the rest of the white in the space. I will be sharing more about the art and accessories next week.
Right past the shelved wall there is my sitting area. Since I have a home office in my home. I wanted a place that is for after work: no kids, no phone just a place to read or watch TV. I found this great chair at a trade source and recovered it in the only non kid-friendly fabric I have in my home, a velvet, so only I am allowed to sit in it.
The cabinets were custom designed by me. I opted for mirrored panels to make the small area feel more open and pull more light in. The drapery is a simple playful pattern that I felt tied in all of the colors and shapes in the space.
There is a floor mirror with a chair next to it on the other side of the room. This was the only thing my husband requested – a place where he could sit to untie his shoes. So, I redid a simple chair I had for a while with a fun dotted fabric that went with the wallcovering and custom painted the frame to match the white in the room.
The TV cabinet is right across from the bed. I custom designed it as well to store bedding and media in the trays. Flanking on either side are panels to mirror the bedside ones. I decorated the top with books that I love along with two photos of us with a fun little graphic heart print to say what this room means to us.
Happy Everything! Karen
