The master bedroom looked gorgeous in the real estate photos. And it also looked good staged for sale, but once the furniture was removed, I realized that I wanted to replace the carpet before we moved in.
So I decided to carpet all the bedrooms in wall to wall seagrass and layer wool area rugs over them.
I'm so glad I did!
After the seagrass was installed, I wrapped the room in Madagascar grasscloth creating a warm and cozy feel.
Here is the bedroom with all the artwork hung, furnished and window coverings installed.
I chose a tortoise bamboo shade for window above the bed. I love how it coordinates with the grasscloth.
It anchors the television and holds my collection of turquoise, clutches and belts displayed in glass cases.
A charcoal velvet chaise is the perfect spot to sit and read or watch tv.
I hung a series of botanical specimens mounted on black linen next to the chaise.
California Closets turned the dingy little closet into an efficient closet with room to spare.
It isn't as glamorous as our City closet, but that's ok.
What I love most about our bedroom is the French doors that open to the deck.
They were replaced with energy efficient doors that open out, instead of in.
I hung white linen draperies on either side for privacy and light control.
With Phase 1 finished, we're gearing up for the larger construction of Phase 2.
This room will be a retreat from all of that chaos.
Our little sanctuary!
