Planning the Master Bedroom

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!
