Cozy Master Suite
One of my favorite things about our home is the cozy master bedroom suite. It is spacious, has lots of natural light and that extra large bed we always dreamed of having. I love waking up in this room to the beautiful, soft light that morning brings. With whites, beige and greys as the main color palette, this room is cozy and inviting.
I love looking back at the transformation of our bedroom. What was once painted a bland, beige, is now a beautiful, soft grey. The color is subtle yet still makes a statement. It is in the blue-grey family and as I am sure you know, the color blue produces a calming effect. The color is called "Whitestone" by Benjamin Moore in egg shell. It is a nice, light and bright grey.
The first thing we did when we moved in was purchase a bed that looked appropriate for the size of the room. Our old queen size bed was being swallowed whole by the space. We found the perfect neutral, fabric headboard from Wayfair. It was reasonable in price, great quality and arrived in a couple of days. My Mom actually purchased it for us as a house warming gift! You can check it out for yourself here.
Since I love neutrals, I focused on an organic color palette filled with greys, beiges and whites. To avoid coming off as too boring or bland, I incorporated different textures into the design as well. I chose this white, pinch pleat bedspread purchased at Target last year. It's quite cozy and doesn't require a dry cleaner to keep it clean, I can easily throw it right in my washing machine. Next, I added some simple, white Euro pillows from Ikea and HomeGoods. One set of the 20x20 pillows are a plain, cotton pillow cases with a fluffy, down pillow insert. The next pair are an embroidered, white, 20x20 pillow. I like layering texture, in frabircs as well as wood. I especially like to use different textures when the fabric is the same shade, to create versatility in the design. Finally, I finished the look with an incredibly soft, faux-fur blanket from Marshalls and an adorable wool, lumbar pillow with wood buttons (from Ikea).
The night stands were another purchase from Wayfair. They are made from a distressed barn wood and the hardware is made of iron. They offer great storage and I love the soft close feature. I also like the large opening at the bottom of the nightstand for placing some antique books and some greenery. We purchased two dressers from Ashley Furniture, the Juararo Dresser and the Juararo Chest of Drawers. Both are a made of a darker shade of wood than the nightstands, but have similar hardware. I found the perfect upholstered, grey, bench (found at Marshalls) to place at the end of the bed. It was very reasonable and may still be at some locations as this was fairly recent!
I am still searching for the perfect piece to hang over our bed. I really love the idea of this laser cut wooden "Mr. and Mrs." sign from Woodums, painted black or a magnolia, leaf wreath.
I have an obsession with Jute rugs, as I have mentioned before. The other day Overstock had a 15% off rug sale and so I pounced! I picked up this baby for next to nothing. I placed it under the end of our bed. I love the texture this rug brings to the room, I also despise the carpet upstairs (that will be another project entirely) so I was able to hide some of it as well!
At some point in time we will be adding a sliding barn door to the closet (not pictured) in our master bedroom. There is a large space next to the door frame, which would provide plenty of space for the track. I will be able to test out how I really feel about barn doors in a few weeks when we put a pair on the pantry in our new Kitchen! Check out the gallery below to see the transformation up close.
