Setting the Mood in the Bedroom
The master bedroom is by far my favorite room to design in the home. This is a space where you can create a scene filled with luxury, comfort and a little bit of romance. For me, the master bedroom becomes a space solely to provide comfort. It should be a haven from the bustle of the busy day. An easy and simple way to create this luxurious retreat is through the use of textures, layers, patterns and color.
Begin with the headboard. I prefer an upholstered headboard. Not only does it look stylish and luxe, but it has the added bonus of being comfortable! Next you can begin to layer in beautiful linens, soft pillows, and inviting textures to the top of your bed. Choose soft, tactile fabrics that will become softer with wear – there’s no point in selecting something you wouldn’t live comfortably with.

Nothing defines atmosphere more than lighting – and since atmosphere is key in a master bedroom – so is lighting! Thoughtfully place lighting throughout the room – on top the bedside tables, next to a chaise or a lounge chair. This will create a soothing and peaceful place to relax. When you can turn off your bright overhead lighting and turn on soft lamp light – it gives any room a calm and intimate setting.
Lastly, style should get personal in the master bedroom. Layer in family photos, display treasures from your most recent travels, set aside your favorite books, light candles and place fresh flowers on the bedside table – enjoy your master retreat!
