Master Bedroom Refresh

My client wanted their master bedroom to be a room of retreat and peace. They felt like it was the most overlooked room in the house and peace was the last feeling they got when they walked in.

IMG_3491The room was seriously lacking character and comfort. We knew we wanted the back wall to be an accent wall, since it is the focal point of the room, but we wanted it to be subtle.

Picking Paint ColorPicking paint can be a tricky process. It’s important to pick a few different spots around your space so you can see how it looks in varying shades of light exposure.


The colors we chose compliment one another really well without competing too much for your attention. Your eye is naturally drawn to the back wall as the accent color, and easily transitions to the sidewalls. We went with Benjamin Moore paint –  Back Wall: Revere Pewter HC-172, Side Walls: Mascarpone AF-20


IMG_0232Because of the window height and where the bed needed to be centered in the room, we chose this Dondra Bed frame from CB2 that fits like it was custom made.

The Mid-Century Side Tables from West Elm were the perfect height to go with the low frame. This simple, clean design was exactly what my client was looking for and they were.

The room turned out beautifully. It is now a peaceful retreat that evokes calm when they enter, instead of chaos. This was a super fun project. I loved getting to create this space for these clients. And I loved that they wanted to add just a touch of eclectic whimsy with the antlers above the bed. Because of the brand new look and feel of the room, we were able to use their existing quilt and it took on a brand new life in this space with pillows, table lamps and artwork from Home Goods.
