Is your Master Bedroom a getaway from the worries of the world like it should be? Why not work on creating a beautiful Master Bedroom this year?! The Master Bedroom is a very important part of your home, yet it doesn’t always get top priority. This Bedroom should be a place to take a deep breath and relax. Unfortunately, many bedrooms are cluttered and disorganized. If your bed linens are mismatched and worn, your dresser drawers are overstuffed and you’ve got piles of “stuff” on the floor then it’s time to make your Master Bedroom more of a priority. Seriously… you’ll sleep easier in a serene resting place.
Here are a few ideas for creating your beautiful Master Bedroom…and some of the ideas don’t have a thing to do with decorating!
- Your bed is the focal point of the room. Dress it up and make it every morning!
- When accessorizing your dresser, stick with the basic “three” rule. Use only three items to decorate with, but keep them in scale with the furniture.
- Whether you do long drapes or just a valance select fabrics which go well with your bedding.
- Don’t let clutter gather
- Don’t do chores in your bedroom. No ironing, No piles, No folding clothes, NO PROJECTS.
- Make your room smell wonderful with air mists, candles, or fragrance plug-ins.
“Shades of blue and white in the master bedroom create a calming escape. Mismatched bedding and stacks of pillows in different sizes and patterns work together because of their matching hues. Wall-mountlamps on both sides of the bed provide task lighting so one person can read while the other sleeps. Next to the bed, an antique table makes a charming nightstand and stores bedtime essentials.” – Better Homes & Gardens Magazine
“In this beach house’s master bedroom the bed, dressed with a linen Pandora de Balthazar coverlet and shams, and the matching nightstands are by Seabrook Classics.” – Country Living Magazine
“The whole idea is to keep things as simple as possible; I like everything pared down to its purest form. “I used a combination of different shades of Farrow & Ball white paints—there are several whites on the walls.” – Meg Ryan’s design philosophy
“Accents, this is where you tie it all together, and complete your look. The accents in a room often make or break the look and should be chosen with care. First, make a list of everything you need. Some purchases to think about are:
- Curtains and blinds
- Bedding – duvets, comforters, throw blankets, pillowcases, etc.
- Decorative pillows
- Wall hangings and picture frames
- An area rug for chilly wood floors
- Mirrors – a stand-up mirror for a full-length view is optimal if you have the space.
- Shopping for your accents is where you can truly bring the elements and theme of your room together.” – Homemade by Jaci
“The addition of a third window ensures that no part of the world outside is left unseen. This updated bedroom is also a great example of what a large-scale print can do for a space.” – Coastal Living Magazine
“Wrap a bedroom in quintessential cottage character with a painted paneled wood treatment. Instead of the expected beaded board, run a strip of 1-inch-thick molding from floor to ceiling between a room’s crown molding and baseboard, leaving a foot between each piece of trim. Paint the walls and trim the same color to achieve an-always-been-there look.” – Better Homes and Gardens
“In a New York modernist beach house decorated by Christina Murphy, the master bedroom’s knockout punch is a dramatically over-scale headboard covered in Raoul Textiles’ Exoticus Elephant Leaf.” – House Beautiful
