12 Apr Mellow Master
“The master bedroom is just the beginning of the problems. There is no master in the bedroom. She starts to give you things, ‘This is your closet.’ You’ll act like a stranger and thank her.” – Bill Cosby
BEFORE | MASTER BEDROOM
What do you do when a Girly Girl Aesthetician and Masculine Agent decide to coexist and their taste is completely different?! Make it mellow and meet half way. The existing bedroom was just a shell with light wood floors and exposed rafters. It made a large room look small, which is great if you are looking to cozy up in a cottage, not for a master suite to live in daily!
AFTER | MASTER SUITE
The first step was to paint the rafters white so that the high pitched ceilings made this room feel spacious and airy. The original hardwood floors were stained in a rich espresso color, which we continued throughout the rest of the house to give it a much needed, yet still affordable update. A white hide warms up the room and gives texture to a flat surface. A custom headboard in grey linen anchors a bed in crisp white, my favorite! A tufted bench is just right to house the Mrs.’ art books. Flowy, white linen curtains replace old matchstick blinds further creating height and allowing the beautiful valley sunshine to pour into the room.
A plump yet tailored couch is given new life when covered in an eco friendly natural linen. Fur pillows flank a mustard and grey textile backed in silk velvet for a touch of luxury.
Vintage chinoiserie lamps are sophisticated yet not too serious within this monochromatic space.
A custom vanity was built in this alcove serving as a place to primp as well as display some treasured family photos and an intoxicating perfume collection. A vintage fireplace stool was given new life with chrome, brass and vinyl faux croc, which is durable and can be wiped down! Everything a girl needs, beauty which is also practical. My kind of space. Feels like Rita Hayworth is ready to take a seat…
