Chic Master Bedroom

Project Location: Bedford, NH

In a recent re-design of a Master Bedroom, I combined classic wood furnishings, added in new art, accessories, and accents, incorporated a feminine and flirty color scheme, and found simplicity in various elements.

Existing Wood Furnishing & New Additions

My client’s cherry wood furnishings (nightstands, dresser, and armoire) were in great condition and I knew by using these, it would not only save around $5,000 from having to buy new furniture pieces, but it established a strong base for the room and overall look. The furniture additions include an upholstered headboard, a bench, and an accent chair and table.

Feminine and Flirty

The inspiration for this room's color scheme came from a pair of watercolor art (pictured above the bed) which have mesmerizing tones of pinks, yellows, and greens. This color combination allowed for the perfect level of femininity and also created a fresh overall look to the room.

Simple is (usually) Better

I incorporated a neutral area rug with a slight classic pattern and to blend into the carpeting for a softer look. This rug has great dark and light contrast to coordinate with the darker tones found in the artwork, bench and bedding pillow.

I added in drapery panels that are light beige, so that the color also blends into the paint color. Fun fact: up-close they have a beautiful velvet arabesque detail. 

My client's preference for a metallic finish was gold, so I sourced a few items showcasing gold accents, found the table lamps, mirrors, drapery hardware, drawer knobs and art frames.

Details that Matter:

  • Mother-Of-Pearl Anthropologie knobs replace the original wood knobs to dress up the nightstands, dresser and armoire

  • The drapery rods are mounted close to the ceiling and 6" left and right of trim to give the illusion of a larger window and higher ceilings

  • All of the decorative accents around the room tie into the colors in the artwork

  • The dark gray upholstered bench creates a nice contrast against the carpeting, while tying into the area rug
