To me, beautiful bedrooms happen when you make everything coordinate nicely and when there is very little clutter (both in regards to messes and decor elements). In general, I like simple and clean designs that produce a calming atmosphere. This is exactly what we sought out to achieve when we updated our master bedroom decor earlier this year. As you can see, we kept a fairly neutral color palette of tans and whites with a few pops of aqua in the bed linens. I wanted everything to blend together nicely and, more importantly, highlight the beautiful views we have outside the master bedroom windows. The yard outside is filled with huge live oak trees brimming with Spanish moss, so when you look outside it feels like you are in a treehouse. I wanted to make make that the focal point by using similar shades as the colors of the trees.
We have been struggling for years to find the right bedroom design ideas to use in the bonus room over the garage that we decided to convert to a guest suite. The space is a bit awkwardly shaped as it it long and narrow with a slightly vaulted ceiling. It was hard to find master bedroom furniture that fit within these measurement without look off balance or awkward. We actually found our inspiration for this look when we saw this pair of dressers in a local consignment shop. I liked how they are very stylish but narrow enough to fit nicely along that back wall. We actually stole the bed from our master bedroom because we thought the tall upholstered headboard would be the perfect piece to put between the nightstands (plus it meant we could buy ourselves a new bed). I think that these pieces actually took advantage of the unconventional layout and look perfect in the space.
Other people may think that I am crazy, but I have always loved dark master bedroom colors that make the space seem like an underground cave. I like to think of my bedroom as my own personal hiding spot away from the rest of the world, and for some reason dark brown and black tones embody that for me. As you can see from the photos of my master bedroom, I decided on a rich brown wall color for the entire space, accented here and there with white trim. I paired this color palette with eclectic master bedroom decorating ideas featuring pieces that I picked up on my travels around the world. I found my nightstands in Italy and picked up the oriental prints flanking the dresser on a recent trip to Taiwan. The room is very "me" and ended up being exactly what I was striving to create.
After revamping our master bathroom designs, I'm now itching to finish up the rest of the suite. Now that our bathroom looks so beautiful, I feel that it makes the rest of our space look drab and outdated in comparison. I was really inspired buy the master bedroom ideas in this room -- everything from the color palette to the furniture and linens is something that I could totally see in our house. To start off our new design, I am going to paint the walls in a similar mossy green shade as this room because I think it will make our burlap upholstered bed really pop against it (like this designer did). I also want to swap out the linens and area rug we have in our master bedroom to something a bit softer and more neutral like they used.
I get so excited whenever a client tells me that they want bedroom decor ideas that are a bit unconventional and bold. Taking on unique style challenges and unconventional styles is a interior decorators dream because you can flex your design muscles and come up with something awesome. This is exactly what we did when this homeowner came to us and said that they wanted to revamp their space with master bedroom designs that feature tons of contrasting textures, colors and finishes that you may not expect in a room like this. We took on this challenge and strived to create a master bedroom that was soft and relaxing while still incorporating the bold designs that they requested. To do this, we started with a plush mauve velvet bed that contrasted nicely against the scratchy sea grass wall covering that we chose for the focal wall. Another cool aspect was the shiny mirrored nightstands that provided a cool pairing with the upholstered bed.
I want our master bedroom to look just like this gorgeous cozy space. You don't see a nice floral jacquard fabric used in many of the trendier bedroom ideas lately, and I must say that I love the classic look that it brings. Plain white bed linens paired with a floral dust ruffle, shams, drapes and accent chair is such a great look and reminds me of the traditional style homes I often see on the pages of Southern Living Magazine. I also really like how the owner of this house kept things simple with the master bedroom wall decor and let the elaborate window treatments be the star of the show. They accented the busy fabric with the cutest antique prints and photos that bring out the subtle accent shades in their fabric. Just perfect!
