If your master has the same decorative accessories you placed there years ago, perhaps it’s time for an update.
Because few visitors ever see the master, you may not give this important space the attention it deserves. Why not give your sleeping sanctuary a much-needed update?
You don’t have to spend the time to completely redecorate to provide a brand new look and feel for any room in your home. A few carefully chosen accessories, rugs, pillows and linens will allow you to give your master a makeover in a single afternoon.
Today, we will focus on creating a more relaxing space, where you can unwind and enjoy a restful night’s sleep.
Use a Neutral Palette That Includes Decorative Accessories
For an understated and ultra-relaxing master bedroom space, choose your new decorative accessories based on your existing neutral color scheme.
For a more luxurious and textural feel, select a damask bedspread with velvet or silk toss pillows. Add a soft, upholstered bench at the foot of the bed and a high-back chair with a small table for reading or sipping tea in the morning.
Add hospitality-like accessories that include bedside water carafes and a vase for fresh flowers. Candlesticks and pictures frames add dimension and visual interest. Finally, add vintage books and a low bowl with sachets to lightly scent the room.
Jazz Up the Space with Colorful Home Accessories
If you think too many neutral tones dull your space, try adding pops of color to the room’s neutral background.
No matter what shades you’ve chosen for the master bedroom, bright primary red will energize almost any neutral palette. Alternate solid and print toss pillows and textiles. To make this bright tone work, choose decorative accessories that are solid in form. Shiny red lacquered lamps, catchall bowls and 3-dimensional graphic letters are all fresh right now.
If red doesn’t thrill you, consider saturated jewel tones such as emerald, sapphire or garnet.
Mix Design Styles for a Fresh, Contemporary Look
Interior designers classify décor styles in broad categories, such as traditional and contemporary, casual and formal, or masculine and feminine. Today, mixing two seemingly opposite styles bring a fresh energy to the room.
In the master, try mixing the masculine and feminine styles. Select streamlined metallic decorative accessories for the masculine component. Now match them with softer, feminine touches like Venetian bud vases and perfume bottles. Choose a comforter and draperies with metallic thread woven in, and decorate with feathery marabou toss pillows.
