The master bedroom should be the ultimate retreat. With our days getting longer and busier, it’s critical to have that space to relax and unwind at the end of the day. If the modern bedroom doesn’t reflect who you are, then you’ll never be able to truly enjoy it. But with some simple changes, you can make the space of your dreams.
The biggest investment you’ll make for your master bedroom is the bed itself, so invest in one you love. An upholstered bed is practical, comfortable to lean against, and looks great, like the Nook Bed from Blu Dot, which comes in six great colors to choose from.
Bedding is like the jewels of an outfit– it can make or break the look. When done right, bedding can elevate the design to the next level, like the colorful zig-zags of the Petra 156 Bedding from Missoni Home. The cream background makes the bright hues stand out without being over the top.
The Mimico End Table, from Gus* Modern, is a great choice for bedside tables, as it has a drawer for storage, which you can never have enough of in the master bedroom. Its simple, Scandinavian look can work in any style of room you choose with the added bonus of being able to select between two finishes.
With Rich Brilliant Willing’s Monocle Wall Sconce, you don’t have to worry about giving up valuable bedside table space for a bulky lamp. The compact sconce mounts to the wall and rotates to direct the light wherever you need it.
An evil necessity of life is an alarm clock so we don’t miss out on those early morning meetings. With that said, the alarm clock doesn’t have to be awful that is if you choose one designed by Dieter Rams, like the Braun Square Quartz Alarm Clock BN-C002 from Braun.
