Master Bedroom Musts

  • Soft seating: I think every bedroom needs a comfortable place to sit. As you can see black lab Coco Chanel likes the chair and ottoman in this bedroom.
  • A fantastic bed frame and mattress, mattresses last 25 years so buy a good one.
  • Desk: I  like having a desk in the bedroom, here we have a small writing desk that we painted glossy white. Above the desk we have a book shelf made of books, a vision board, and some photos.
  • TV: yes I know we are supposed to keep them out of the bedroom but, let’s be honest it is nice to relax in bed and watch TV.
  • Fireplace: a fireplace is not a must but it is nice to have, especially during Maine winters.
  • Art: please do not forget to dress your walls. You do not have to spend a lot of money. Go to art shows or galleries and start collecting.
  • Windows-you do not need big heavy drapes, these linen curtain panels are inexpensive but effective.
  • Paint is very important to a well designed bedroom. I like soothing colors in a bedroom, this does not mean pastels they can be saturated colors but they need to make you feel calm.
  • I also like to have fresh flowers in a bedroom, in fact I might need to go to the florist today!
  • Bedside tables-bedside tables with storage for books, and all the other stuff you want close by but do not want to see.
