I spend a lot of time in my Master Suite and I truly believe that this room should be a sanctuary that any of us should be able to escape to. My goal over the past few years has been to make it just that!
When we moved here in 2006, we brought along the furniture from our previous home. Loved the furniture we had although after a family vacation in February of 2010 to Hawaii in a hotel that hosted a King sized bed for us, coming home to a ten year old queen sized bed (& sinking mattress) was not as dreamy as the one had in Hawaii. So guess what, not only a new mattress was what we had our sites set on finding, but then a larger bed frame and night stand came into the picture. After a lot of searching we settled on furniture from Restoration Hardware and a new mattress from Macy’s. Below is the full view when I am standing in front of the buffet table.
The chippy arched window came in from the patio where it had first found it’s place to now sit above our new King sized bed.
Last fall I found these canvas pillow covers on clearance at Restoration Hardware and brought them home to introduce a new texture to the room. You may remember them here on a bench outdoors. I love that I can move these pillows just about anywhere in our home and they feel as though they were created for that space.
One of my most favorite additions over the past year was this darling white buffet. When I purchased it, I honestly had no idea where it was going to go ~ I am so glad that I trusted my instincts and brought it home anyway.
You see it as soon as you come in from the hallway outside of our room which is a very welcoming presence in this room.
This chippy white ladder made a fabulous addition to the Master Suite. I love how much it brightened the corner of the room up. It has a peaceful calming feel when I am cozy in my bed.
The sitting room within the master bedroom had a slight change this year as well. A shelf was added from Pottery Barn. A few clocks were collected from Etsy. New pictures of my husband and i were introduced with garage sale picture frame finds and target mercury glass candlesticks to decorate the shelf.
I had purchased the little night stand on craigslist in hopes of using it in my daughters room, but it found a spot here instead. The night stand hosts my sweet little lamp I made over this past summer too. The sitting room is a great little reading place now.
And of course this room wouldn’t be what it is with out the small romantic touches that makes it all so beautiful together!
Thank you so much for taking the time to come by and take a peek at all that has happened just since I started blogging in 2010. With all of the inspiration that I see from all of you ~ it has given me a sanctuary I only dreamed of before.
