Today I thought I'd share my ideas for my perfect master bedroom, aka a pampering retreat. With the following elements, I can see myself snuggling up under the covers, reading a great book, with a warm fire and an Oregon rain storm raging outside...so cozy!

I'd choose a softer waxed tone for the beams to soften it a bit, but overall I love the feel and layout of this beautiful room. I like it when a bedroom is small enough so that it remains intimate, yet roomy enough for a sitting area...
QUESTION: I haven't decided yet what to do about the TV - over the fireplace or not? We love to watch movies in bed with the kids sometimes, so although it's not exactly kosher we need a TV in the bedroom...:)
What would you do?
Required: extra large windows to enjoy the view of all of
those gorgeous Oregon evergreens.

I would choose a couple of down-cushioned beautiful chairs in a gorgeous finish such as these, to flank a roaring fire in the winter and overlook the view in Summer.
An upholstered linen headboard with nailhead trimming...like in the top left picture, along with any of these bedding combinations! They have a similar feel, I think, and have a lot of aspects of the neutrals with golds style that I blogged about here. I love it when I put together my latest faves and they harmonize - that tells me something and makes the decisions easier!
I'd find the perfect spot for this...maybe centered over the headboard.
I'd definitely want non-matching bedside tables:
A feminine little piece for me...
A masculine version for my husband with lots of storage for
all of his reading materials!
A couple of great lamps next to the bedside...
Some beautiful boxes to organize little tid-bits.
To finish it off, some beautiful abstract art in soothing colors that
evokes thoughts of the sea...
I think it would work quite well with my idea of perfection in the master bath.
What do you need in your dream master bedroom?
I'd love to hear your thoughts, comments, ideas & feedback!
