3 things every master bedroom needs, whether you know it or not!
YOUR BEDROOM SHOULD BE YOUR ESCAPE FROM THE WORLD: A PLACE TO GET AWAY, TO RELAX, AND TO REJUVENATE. OF COURSE, YOU NEED A COMFORTABLE BED WHERE YOU CAN GET YOUR SLEEP, SOFT SHEETS, AND PERFECT PILLOWS. AS AN INTERIOR DESIGNER, IT’S MY JOB TO ADD THE OTHER THINGS YOU NEED – MAYBE NOT THE MOST OBVIOUS ITEMS, BUT THE ONES THAT REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE WHEN YOU’RE ENJOYING YOUR PEACEFUL RETREAT.
In this post, we’ll break down 3 of our go-to moves for bedroom interior design to make any master bedroom feel like peaceful retreat from the world.
Trust me, you don’t just want one type of lighting in the master bedroom. You need different layers of light for different purposes.
- Table lamps or wall sconces near the bed are a must. Put them on separate switches so your husband can snooze while you finish the newest best seller.
- A pretty chandelier adds an element of glamour to your bedroom. Keep it on a separate switch from your other overhead lights so you can enjoy the twinkling light all by itself.
- Overhead lights on dimmers. Brighten themall the way up when you’re tryng to find the stiletto you lost under the bed. Keep them dimmed in the evenings when you’re getting ready.
- You can never go wrong with sconces above the fireplace, if you’re lucky enough to have a fireplace in your bedroom, that is!
A professional interior designer can help you create a lighting plan for the master bedroom and choose lighting fixtures that complement eachother.
Depending on the size ofyour master bedroom, you may or may not need secondary seating.
A bench at the foot of the bed is perfect for perching on to fix your shoes, especially if your bed is up high. No one wants to jump up on the bed to fasten their Jimmy Choo t-straps!
I also love a bench because of its versatility. I get to design a custom one operfect for you: tufted, skirted, scroll arms, whatever i can dream up. It’s also fun to customize the fabric and trim – I can fo a brighter, bolder print to add a little excitement to the room.
If you have enough space, an armchair and ottoman is also lovely to include. You can curl up on it to read or to nap. Your kids can hang there while you do your makeup. It’s the perfect place to cozy up on a cold winter’s night!
A Beautiful Throw Blanket
This is a small yet important detail. Throw blankets are perfect to add texture to your bedspread, armchair, or bench. They keep you warm wen you need a little extra heat in the winter or want to just lay back with a book.
They come in endless colors and textures, from luxe faux fur to simple chunky knits. They also can fit into any budget. Whether draped across the foot of your bed or casually thrown across your reading chair, you can’t go wrong with a good throw blanket.
