The Master Bedroom--Our Little Sanctuary

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.

Under the carpet there was only subfloor.  No hardwood at all because this room was added on at some point.
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.



A collection of fern prints bring a feeling of tranquility.

 My pine sofa table found a new home in the bedroom.
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!

Pin It!

Hi Betsy,
The bed is from Pottery Barn. I can’t remember where the bedskirt is from. I’ve had it for a long time! Delores

Delores, I almost gave myself a heart attack when I first opened the post and saw the first photo. Because I hadn't read anything yet, I thought that this was an "after" photo of your bedroom. While pretty, I thought: "Oh, no! What did Delores do with her gorgeous 4-poster bed? And where's the warmth in this room? Could a house change someone's style so drastically? Then, whew! I read and saw the transformation. Now, there's my Delores! It is so beautiful! Those botanicals on black linen are so unusual! Love everything!

It looks PHENOMENAL! And, boy, if you haven't given me some great ideas. I love the idea of a sofa table in the bedroom. I think I need to rethink some of my decor choices, thanks to you. Isn't it all such fun?!
