Name one person who doesn't want a gorgeous master bedroom! I can't. Wait... unless it's a man. Ugh. Anyways, let's talk about how to create a beautiful, wonderful, cozy master bedroom! Pictured in this post is my friend Tami's master bedroom, designed by the talented (and also my friend) MeganRae Interiors. Megan recently helped Tami remodel her beautiful home. I have always loved hanging out at Tami's house. She's basically one of the sweetest girls in world... but now I love it even more! So I thought Tami's bedroom was the perfect example for this post. I think you'll agree!
Play with texture and pattern. The rug, the solid, striped, pattered, and fuzzy pillow (why do I love that fuzzy pillow so much?) ... ahh! Notice the texture in the duvet, in the throw, and in the coverlet. Don't shy away from using many different textures on your bed. They are all so different but they work so well!
Attention to detail. Just a touch of a special little touch of something special goes a really long way! Take this paneled wall behind the bed for instance. Just a little bit of detailing takes your room to the next level. It doesn't have to be intricate or amazing, it just has to lend a little extra interest!
Add a sitting area. I have a serious thing for sitting areas in bedrooms. I kinda feel like, if you have enough space you must have a sitting area in your master bedroom. A sitting room makes your master bedroom feel luxurious and cozy at the same time. This is a great example of a bedroom sitting area. Notice how the chairs Megan chose are not bulky arm chairs, but rather light-weight chairs that don't take up a lot of space and aren't visually heavy.
Add personal touches! This is true with any room but I think it's especially important in master bedrooms. Display photographs of you and your special someone. This makes it feel like a romantic retreat. I like to display our wedding photographs in our bedroom.
Start with a plan. This is the last tip... but it might be the most important. Before you begin, collect photographs of bedrooms that appeal to you. Don't worry about a theme at this point. Just find anything and everything you like. Then, narrow it down to the one you like the most. Come up with a color pallet. Use your inspiration photograph along the way to keep you in check. What do I mean by that? Constantly compare what your doing in your room to your photograph. Are you hanging way more on your walls than in the photograph? Are your colors the same hue as your photograph? Are you using way more accessories on your dresser than in the photograph? I'm not saying you should copy the photograph exactly, I'm saying you should use that photograph as a guide line to help you create what you intended to create.
I wish you all luck in creating a beautiful master bedroom retreat.
