“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.
(And speak from the heart to be heard.)”-
WILLIAM W. PURKEY
Have you been craving a serene, calm master bedroom, but don’t know where to begin. Well, Valentines Day is a good prompt since it is a romantic occasion. Why not treat yourself!
Often when I go into a property for a home staging or re-design project, what seems to be very common, is that the living room, family room, dining area, kitchen, etc. have all been updated or changed to some extent, but the master bedroom has not. This is the room we sleep in, relax in and spend quality time in. Sleep is crucial to our well being and having a room that we can retire to and turn off the world in, is very important.
Here are some suggestions to get you started.
Try a ”quiet” colour scheme in either pastel hues or soft, warm greys and combine with dramatic choices of furniture and beautiful lighting/accessories. Start by selecting your Wow Factor, the element that you can build your design around. This could be your headboard, a light fixture or a piece of furniture that holds some sentiment for you. If you decide to create a monochromatic colour scheme, implement more than one wow factor to create drama in the space. This upholstered headboard, fabulous chandelier and bench with vintage finish are all good choices and each contribute to the overall design.
