Who doesn’t love a little peek into how other people really live? I love seeing pictures of other people’s homes!
We built this home last summer and moved in last September. Instead of focusing on one room at a time while I decorate, I’ve been fluttering around the house from project to project – whatever I want to do next. It is a very liberating approach! Today I thought I’d share my master bedroom with everyone, because it is one of my favorite spaces in our home.
My master bedroom is my sanctuary. I escape here when I need a break. That bed makes a comfy place for a power nap.
I’ve memorized all of the idiosyncrasies of this ceiling on sleepless nights.
I couldn’t find a bedding set that fit my exact style with the right colors, so I created this bedding set a la carte.
It works for me.
My reading chair. That blanket was made for me by my great-grandma when I was born. It is the most comfortable blanket of all time and it comes in handy when I want to take a nap, but not completely disturb the bed.
I like bedroom decor to be parent focused. The rest of the house reminds us we have lots of kids, I like my bedroom to remind me of the most important relationship.
Elements of organization: Each drawer holds 1 type of item, like CDs or DVDs. One even holds only our souvenir Indian clothes from one of Matt’s business trips. Notice also that there are no piles of clutter! Clutter is the thief of peace! (Well, I don’t consider my ‘to-read’ stack clutter, since I actually read them and move them out once I finish.) If your master bedroom is cluttered with things that don’t belong, start by moving all of the clutter to a different spot. Let the place you find your rest, also be a place of peace and comfort. Take back your bedroom!
