In desperate NEED of some design sense.. Master Bedroom
Melissa Fischer
January 14, 2013 in Design Dilemma
My master bedroom dimensions are roughly:
19 1/2 feet Long by 11 1/2 feet wide. Its a decent size rectangle.
Im open to ANY ideas. My inspiration would be a Nice Hotel Room. I like the idea of a Large bed, maybe a small seating area, or bench under the window or at the foot of the bed. A few details: The walls are currently painted Whetstone Grey by Martha Stewart There is a 4 1/4 inch white baseboard around the entire room with a tan berber carpet.
Im posting a few pics.. Thanks a 1,000,000!!

Thanks! I was actually considering getting rid of it for a tufted one, but I think I may be able to make it work.. Love the ideas above! What do you think about a wallpapered accent wall?

You need a soft and subdued light like these attached photos to give a warm and intimate ambience.
I would give an exotic touch to your room.

Better and varied lighting is key. Please invest in that. It will make everything else you do in the room look even better.

I think a wall paper accent wall could be beautiful! Look here: http://www.houzz.com/photos/bedroom/wallpaper-accent-

I was thinking of two scones on each side of the bed? What do you think?

I personally prefer lamps as you can move them if ever you want to rearrange your room unlike sconces- although very nice- become permanent fixtures. Otherwise, they look beautiful when put up.

If you are going for a hotel feel, it's relatively easy to achieve and can be done economically. Just remember to layer the room like a nest and add lots of the little amenities that make a hotel stay so pleasant; a bed tray, candles, fresh flowers. I did a mock up of your space and kept your existing furniture (for the most part). Have fun!

Thank you. I did the pre-viz in Photoshop, actually. It's a great tool to use if you want to "test" a look before taking the plunge.

You have lovely basics, all you need is to decorate. What colors do you like/which ones make you feel calm and happy? buy pillows, artwork, throws and lamps. Pick an accent color --go to paint store and look at the colors! Pick the ones that speak to you and don't second-guess yourself. Look around houzz and discover your style -- traditional? contemporary? asian? Whatever. I, personally, would go eclectic. A birch or bamboo bench, throw pillows of a few different fabrics (each must be cozy). Pick a "pop" color and get three things in that color, and concentrate two of them in a corner of the room, the third somewhere nearby to pull the space together. For the wall/artwork, take a little time at your next art fair, and spend most of your budget here. A great painting will guide you successfully!

I would buy an upholstered headboard which would make the room seem wider without the dark footboard. Get nicely lined curtains in a neutral shade like Pottery Barn's dupioni silk ones. Hang the curtain close to the ceiling and have the curtains just touch the floor. Get 2 mirrored dressers and use as bedside tables. Buy a hotel striped band duvet cover, 4 standard pillows and two euros. A throw or quilt at the end of the bed. In front of the window place 2 accent chairs and a round table between. Have fun!

Thanks Julia! I love all of your idea's. I recently found a beautiful tufted headboard that I think will look great! I was clueless on the curtains and love the ones you suggested! If only you loved closer!! Thanks again!
