I’ve always believed that a master bedroom should be more than just a place to sleep. It should also be your sanctuary; a place to hide, relax and unwind far away from the stresses of everyday life.
Recently I did some work transforming the master bedroom of a home, in a small town east of Toronto.
There were so many things wrong with this bedroom and so many missed opportunities. The wall colour was horrible, an awful pinkish taupe which had been carried onto the doors. There was a beautiful fireplace which provided the perfect place for a sitting area. The bedding was bland and boring. The crown moulding and trim were beautiful, but were painted in an off white that frankly just looked dirty and the windows were covered in gorgeous white shutters.
We wanted a bedroom that would be bold and dramatic, modern and clean with bright white trim and doors and we wanted to take advantage of the area around the fireplace. We chose a colour scheme of medium and dark grays and white and with the help of a colleague, we created a beautiful sitting area facing the fireplace and TV.
