A master bedroom really should be a retreat – the perfect getaway for rest and relaxation. So when I started the redesign on my clients’ bedroom, I knew that we not only needed to give it a more modern and sophisticated update, but we also needed to make it a more relaxing room.
I love natural light, but as you can see in the “before” photo above, this room was almost too bright. There were no window coverings to help darken the room for a great night’s sleep. The neutral walls, ceiling and carpet just bounced that light around, creating a too-bright effect. So I knew I needed to soften the light in the room, and to give the room a palette that would be serene and sophisticated.
The combination of taupe, grays, and plums really gave the master bedroom a chic sense of calm. And new furnishings and accessories really amped up the style quotient, giving this room a fabulous and more modern update.
And while my clients loved having extra seating in this bedroom, the old sofa they were using just didn’t work for them.
I gave them two fantastic and comfortable chairs, with a shared ottoman that could work as both an extra table, or a place to rest their feet after a long day.
So what do you think of this Before and After? Didn’t it create a more relaxing retreat? Let me know in the comments section below! And if you want to see the Luxury Spa Bathroom that is part of this lovely Master Suite, you can Find it here.
