The master bedroom is the ideal place to take refuge from reality - and when it comes to creating the perfect bedroom and bath, casual and comfortable retreats are more appealing than formal, model-home-like spaces.
But, blissful hideaways are not limited to only one style and feel. Here are some ideas and inspiration to create a serene master suite, no matter what your definition of relaxing may be.
Before choosing a theme or color palette for the bedroom, focus your attention on the bathroom first. This functional room deserves to be updated with elegant and understated features in order to create a haven from the stresses of everyday life. After all, a true master suite escape has the ideal spa-inspired bathroom.
To achieve a charming appearance with soft comforts, start by styling the room with fixtures and accessories that exude a clean style, like the Voss collection from Moen. Voss delivers uncomplicated glamor throughout the entire bath. With a full range of bath fixtures, including rain showers, faucets and coordinated accessories, your master bath can be transformed into a personal sanctuary that will last for years to come.
Cozy Country Flair
An uncluttered room with rustic décor pieces is sure to create a relaxing environment away from the hectic world outside. The simple esthetics of an English country look accomplish this desired feeling by mixing patterns and décor elements comfortably and with a bit of flair.
To create this look, start with a simple color palette - such as blue and white or pink and brown. Patterned wallpaper, borders and curtains in floral or plaid prints are a great way to evoke that welcoming, country feeling. And keep your eyes open for one-of-a-kind antiques and wood furniture to accent your country retreat. A perfect - and often inexpensive - place to start is your local antique store, flea market, or even yard sales. After all, one person's trash is another person's vintage treasure.
There's a reason why tropical beaches are considered the fundamental escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The rush of the ocean and the feel of sand between your toes can bring anyone a lasting sense of tranquility.
For this laid-back theme, use an upholstered headboard in a soft blue pattern to highlight the focal point of the room - the bed. Use whimsical décor pieces such as glass bedside lamps and palm plants throughout the rest of the room to complete the theme.
Whether your style is more classic, country or coastal - or perhaps a combination - you can create a dream master suite retreat that fits your own personal style.
