It's so wonderful having the chance to work with genuinely wonderful people, and there's nothing I enjoy more than helping them create spaces that they'll enjoy coming home to + spending time in. This master bedroom project was no exception, and my sweet client, Betsy, was looking for an overall neutral, relaxing master bedroom design that would easily incorporate a few of their existing pieces. She wanted to ensure the room flowed well with the style of the rest of the house (which is an amazing California farmhouse), and also wanted to make sure it worked well with the overall neutral, blue, white and yellow color scheme throughout the rest of the home.
Here are a few of the inspiration spaces that she sent me, to get a feel of the vibe she was going for:
So overall, the look we were going for was tailored and neutral, but with some color and pattern thrown into the mix as well. Here is the design that I came up with:
SOURCES: Mirrored Nightstands / Curtains / Art Prints / Blue + Neutral Vases / Lumbar Pillow / Side Table / Faux Hydrangea Floral Arrangement / Pharmacy Floor Lamp / Silver Spheres / White Table Lamps / Herringbone Throw Blanket / Jute Herringbone Area Rug / Tufted Bench / Wingback Headboard / Neutral Bordered Duvet + Euro Shams / Blue Ikat Pillows / Neutral Ikat Accent Pillow / Ceiling Fan / Mercury Glass Hurricanes
Betsy already had one of those mirrored nightstands, and I suggested purchasing a matching one for the other side, since it would make the space more balanced and polished. Though mismatched nightstands can be done well, and can add a collected, eclectic vibe to a space, that wasn't really the look we were going for here. We stuck with an overall neutral pallette, and added in some blue accents with the throw pillows and accessories. As a sidenote, I often suggest neutral pieces for the main elements of a room, since this tends to help stretch a budget and can prevent going too trendy with a space... color can always be added with accessories and new accent pieces.
So there you have it! A neutral and calming master bedroom design :)
