MAKE IT SEXY
Maximize space, De Clutter and Dream
In “bursting at the seams” cities with small claustrophobic box like bedrooms, space saving , creativity and some ingenuity - Voila - a small space translates into a sanctuary to contemplate and daydream.
Locate mirrors in unusual places, such as the tops of dressers or side tables, to reflect dancing candle light. Tropical plants and trees, uplit with special lights, cast exciting shadows.
Small refrigerators allow you to enjoy your time in the bedroom without interruption, and a television offers the opportunity to watch your favorite movies and shows alone. Room-darkening window coverings aid in the restoration of your soul.
STORAGE, ACCESS, SHELVING
The master bedroom is a place where one retreats and relaxes, the corollary to which is that everything must be close at hand, easy to access – neither cramped nor allowing a waste of space. Push-in pop-open cabinets that hold everything from CD’s to tools to shoes cut clutter and maintain order.
Fashionable shelving with good organizers and smart chunky drawers are important to hide the necessities, mail, stationary, mobile phones, and their bulky chargers in utilitarian racks, rustic baskets, and olden day medicine chests with multifarious compartments that can be pulled out for easy access.
FUTONS & SOFA BEDS
In homes where one bedroom is ‘the’ master bedroom I recommend Futons for dual function of seating and sleeping spaces, automatically leaving value-area for miscellaneous activity enhancing movement. Where space is not a consideration large king size beds or show stopper four poster antique beds are grand.
Dramatic shapes for bed-heads, -artistic, novel, creative, or dramatic, are all that are required to transform this high-utility area into a statement of style and décor! Upholster it for a look of luxury or if you are a person who reads while lying create padded headboards. Or give it a vibrant coat of daring color, just let your imagination play, this is one place that has to please only you!
Adding furniture usually considered living room pieces automatically upscales the importance of the master bedroom creating that feeling of an oasis.
CREATING A COSY BOUDOIR
-THAT PRIVATE BEDROOM SITTING ROOM
A light armchair, an under- the- bed upholstered seater on castors that can be pulled out, a lazy boy, an interesting ottoman, a dramatic Jacobean day-bed , sofas, rocking chairs, or matching overstuffed chairs turn a master bedroom into an elegant lounge, furnished luxuriously like a private haven. —An inviting ambience for an intimate tete-a tete with a spouse or even a sitting room like private space where one typically calls in a friend for tea or a movie.
A bay window or a cantilevered slab of stone out of the window using brackets beneath creates an additional window seat or a box window where you could spend some time ruminating or even reading a book, and this enlarges the space visually and literally along with adding to the elegance of the room. Incase this is not possible a languid lounge chair with a floor lamp and nearby tea table makes for a perfect Reading recess.
An intimate bistro table, set with two chairs, invites private conversations, is great for breakfast and just incase there is no space for a desk this is an interesting solution especially since very few people enjoy sitting in a regimented manner against a desk and working. That morning cup of tea with the newspaper propped on the table when I do not necessarily want to face the entire house early in the morning is a pleasure for me since I included it into mine! When one cannot have a complete round table in the room I also use a semi circular table against a wall.
Dressing tables, accessorized with crystal and porcelain obsolete in the living room today add romance and bed trays suggest the chance of luxurious breakfast in bed, while soft lighting, candles, essential oils in a diffuser effectively complete the décor .
