Now that we're getting close to the finish line, I'm working on the final design details. Since this is a new Master Bedroom, I really want to make it special. It's located in the back of the house, a great quiet location to get away from the hustle and bustle in the rest of the house. But it looks rather plain right now - we need to spice it up!
The starting point is this great duvet cover and sham set from Pottery Barn. I bought it in the fall, before we even started the project. It has all the Craftsman colors that I love and the pattern is perfect!
This room has a great spot for a padded headboard, so I decided to whip one up (click here for instructions). I used this beautiful linen blend fabric in a color called 'Paprika'. And to really set it off, I added oversized nail head trim every 2 inches.
Next, we need drapes for the large windows across the back. This David Allen fabric in a trellis pattern is a great compliment to the duvet cover. I'm just doing simple panels, for either side of the windows. But I made sham covers as well, to tie all the colors and patterns together.
This is a good sized room, so the plan includes a cozy chair for reading a good book. And this great Restoration Hardware light fixture will brighten up the spot.
Of course we also need lots of room for storage. There is plenty of space for a chest of drawers. But the room also has a large walk in closet. And if the future owners need even more storage, there is a large space in the knee wall for bulky things like suitcases.
We still need final trim, paint and the new hardwood floor. But we'll get to put it together soon!
