You spend a third of your life sleeping. Even if you are unaware of your surroundings, it is important to have a calming and relaxing master bedroom that reflects your personal style. So just rest and follow our guide to get the look you want for your master bedroom.
When designing a master bedroom, it is important to create a calm, calming, and relaxing environment. And one of the easiest ways to do this is to create symmetry in your master bedroom. In this luxury Four Seasons apartment, we framed the bed with symmetrical bedside tables and filled the room with pairs of objects so our client can wake up in a balanced, calm environment.
Canopy bed frame
Your bed is the centerpiece of your master bedroom. So don’t be afraid to choose a frame that makes a statement. When you have the ceiling height, go for a four-poster bed. In this penthouse with a view of Central Park West, Desiron has made a two-tone four-poster bed for a bold, modern statement.
Every room in your home should have at least one piece of art, and your master bedroom is no exception. Don’t go for something vivid or distracting, instead choose something like a monochromatic painting or a black and white photo. In this SoHo Duplex, we placed a framed black and white picture over the bed for a chic look that matches the rest of the room.
Don’t skimp on pillows
Most importantly, your master bedroom should be a comfortable place to sleep. Whether it’s a dozen baker’s pillows or a second duvet, go for it. In this Sag Harbor loft, we made sure the main bed had plenty of pillows. Gray pillows, small pillows, large pillows, white pillows: whatever it takes, make your bed as comfortable as possible.
Luxury furniture and plush bedding aren’t all you need for a masterful master bedroom. Clutter and clothing also need to be addressed. So make sure you have plenty of storage space for frills and your wardrobe. In this luxury apartment on the Upper East Side, we installed custom built built-in wardrobes that take the place of a standard closet.
We love a colorful home. But the bedroom is a place for peace and quiet. Use a combination of neutral and washed out colors to give your master bedroom a calm and peaceful environment. It’s the perfect way to start and end your day.
When you jump out of bed in the morning, give your feet something plush and comfortable to land on. We use a large carpet for all of our master bedrooms and frame it around the bed. It will highlight the center of your room and add extra comfort to your space.
Give yourself a little space
If you live in a studio apartment, you may be wondering how to separate your sleeping area from the rest of your home. One of the easiest ways is to use a wall divider or even a large piece of furniture. In this chic, rustic loft overlooking Union Square, we used a bookcase to separate the bed from the dining area, further distinguishing each area of the open loft.
