I believe the master bedroom describes the personality of any person or couple living in a home. Are you or you and your partner fun, serious, boring, sexy, outdoorsy, athletic, etc? It’s going to show in your decor!
Also, it’s important to love the look and feel of this room because you spend a very large percentage of your life living in the master bedroom. This room should make you want to wake up every day feeling refreshed and ready to start the day. It should also make you feel comfortable and relaxed as you prepare for a long and hopefully restful sleep!
When my husband and I toured our soon-to-be new home, this was the master bedroom. It screamed Pottery Barn! Lovely large bulky furniture with a fresh clean look and neutral walls. Nice room, but not us!
Very soon after we moved into our home, the master bedroom was remodeled. My husband and I prefer classic elegance with a modern twist. We also wanted our room to have some sexy….we are eighteen years into our relationship and almost eight years married. We never want the spark to die!
We chose large black furniture, however, we decide to stay with a queen size bed. Previously, the room was overtaken by a king size bed; and I don’t mind being close. Then came choosing the bed ensemble. We decided upon a comforter, pillows and window treatments that remained in the neutral family of taupes and blacks. (Macy’s has the best selection.)
Since the bedding was neutral, the bedroom walls needed to be rich in color. I didn’t want crazy…but I did not want blah. After hours of looking at the color wheel, purple was the perfect choice. And while we were at Lowe’s buying paint, why not investigate their lamp selection? The most wonderful lamps were two aisles away…crystal bases and shades that matched the bedding!
The look came together within 48 hours.
We are so happy with the update; and this bedroom fits us just perfectly as a couple!
