Master Suite…

I have been asked by a few bloggers to share the master suite in one post ~ however I have been waiting until I revealed all the changes individually.  Now that I have completed that mission with my most recent post of sharing my Vintage trunk ~ I can do just that.
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.

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.

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. 001

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.

Hi Tracie,
What a lovely sanctuary. My eye immediately went to the arched window over your bed. Love it!! And then to the chippy white ladder that's the perfect piece to give height to that corner. And of course, the buffet is so charming. What can I say, you've done an incredible job!

Your master bedroom is such a sanctuary! I love the nook with the comfy chair next to the bookshelf. I could just curl up there and choose a book. I also love the buffett - what a great idea for the bedroom

All of your bedroom is beautiful...but the little sitting area has left me drooling! Lovely blog!!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Lovely, Tracie! Love that chunky shelf in your sitting room and the window frame over the bed. I've heard that once you sleep in a King size bed there is no going back. I guess that applies to vacations, too! : ) I'll bet you're glad you got your room looking exactly as you want. I'm still working on ours a little bit at a time. I'll get there. Eventually!

Sandi said...

Your room turned out lovely Tracie! Can you believe hubby and I still sleep in a FULL size bed?? I do a lot of pushing him over...hee hee!! Truth be told our bedroom is too small for a bigger bed and we are managing fine for now!
Blessings~

Stephanie said...

Wonderful. You will have only sweet dreams in this beautiful bedroom!

Swede Dreamer said...

What a beautiful room, Tracie! As I was going through the pictures, I kept saying to myself "this is my favorite", then "this is my favorite", etc., etc. So I decided it's all my favorite!

Thank you for sharing at Potpourri Friday! I always appreciate your participation!
