Refined rustic master bedroom

Refined rustic, is the newest off shoot of the rustic design movement. Here is the concept, use rustic elements, like wood, metal and linen in transitional design.

I am working on a master bedroom for clients, the husband loves rustic and the wife does not. As any designer will tell you, this is common place, designers have to blend styles on a daily basis. Below, you can see the boards I have put together for a master bedroom with a refined rustic-coastal vibe.

Most of these furniture pieces can be mixed and matched differently. I like my clients to pick out items that really speak to them, so the first set of boards help me hone in on their style.

What do you like and dislike about these options? Are you a fan of the current rustic design craze? Or are you ready to see something new?

Thank you for stopping by, please let me know your thoughts!

Happy Birthday America!

5 Ways to turn your bedroom into a retreat

As we settle into autumn we turn our attention inside. Generally people get their guest rooms ready for the holidays, I think you should turn your own bedroom into a retreat.

Here are my top five ways to spruce up your bedroom.

  1. Add a focal wall with wallpaper, a different paint color or with wood like in this photo by Liz Donnelly.

2. Add age with a rustic or reclaimed light fixture.

3. Neutralize your pallet, this really makes a room feel spa like.

4. Add an over sized mirror to reflect the light in the room.

5. Have fun with a rug, maybe a cozy sheepskin for winter and a striped one for summer?

I think it time for me to get cracking and spruce up my own bedroom!

ALL IMAGES WERE ON PINTEREST…I LOVE THAT SITE!

These are a few of my favorite Master Bedrooms

I am currently working on a Master Bedroom for a client. I have been caring for a relative who was critically ill, all my clients have been wonderful and understanding. This client has been waiting for ideas for a long time!

We need…

  • New king bed
  • Paint for the walls
  • New bedding
  • Window treatments
  • Bedside tables
  • Large Rug
  • Maybe an upholstered chair if there is room
  • Lamps

Here are the bedrooms I am getting my inspiration from…

I love this room! The view is amazing, and so is the fun rug and soothing colors and textures.

I like the idea of doing a nickel-gap board (wood) focal wall behind the bed…I do not know if my clients will go for it.

I also like this idea of using trim to create panels behind the bed.

We could use a bold/strong wall color in the room if we used neutrals everywhere else,  like they have in this room.

I love the trim in this room but, it was the rug that I thought might appeal to my clients!

This room is very appealing to me. The floral screens, the oversized bedside tables, and the crisp window treatments, work together to form a beautiful and restful space.

This is just a classic straight forward clean bedroom design!

I think the black accents are interesting in this space, they really pop.

The Making of a Master Bedroom

Master Bedroom Musts

Photos: Liz Donnelly

  • 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.
