Home Tour: Master Bedroom
A bedroom is supposed to be a place of calm, relaxation and a bit of a sanctuary of respite for us. Our master bedroom has certainly become that space for us.
One of my desires in our home when I was very first putting together my mood board, was to have a room with ceiling rafters. It just feels so “old home” and special to me but when we first started building it didn’t look like it was going to be in the cards for us unless we faked it. As we continued framing out this space we began to see the vision come together with the roofline and we quickly changed our plans for this space to allow for the open look and high ceilings and I’m so thankful we were able to pull it off.

Some of my favorite things about the space are the oversized cone shaded light fixtures that hang from the ceiling, the open framed metal farmhouse bed and all the textures from the vintage basket end tables and piles of bedding. A bedroom is meant for layering, so adding lots of pillows, layering in quilts and duvets, stacks of linen covered vintage books, and other mixed textures always helps to make the space feel cozy and lived in.
I purchased this old wooden cart from an old Antiques Market here in Atlanta years ago and the seller told me it came from a rope mill in North Georgia. It adds such a wonderful point of interest and patina to the space and is also functional to hold all the pillows we take off the bed when we sleep. Bonus points for extra storage.
I also love flanking a bed by matching lamps, even though our nightstand tables here don’t match (by design) it’s the synergy of the lamps that helps bring it back together and feel balanced. I’m not one for a matchy-matchy 10 piece bedroom furniture set myself and love mixing in collected elements that go together, are functional but also add a bit of character.
I also love organizing a bedroom in a way that doesn’t feel cluttered but allows for your everyday stuff to be a part of the decor. So books on the nightstand for reading or jewelry draped on a dresser can become beautiful decor accents that help to make the space a true home.
These are some of my favorite jewelry pieces that are fine to be left out, and a stack of metal + ceramic nested bowls I inherited from my Grandmother, along with an oversized Norman Rockwell book to soften the layers.
