Well, I told Katy that I am here in a new house and I have all this space in the master bedroom and totally love it, but have not a clue in the world how to fill the space or decorate it. It looks like the master bedroom of a bum right now. I mean, come on, how do you fill the space when all you have is a bed and a measly dresser?
She came to the rescue, like I knew she would... This girl is amazing.
You may think you're not a fan of interior design, but think again. Interior design can provide harmony to a space, not just expensive furnishings and accessories. Most of you know Bonnie recently moved into a new home. She mentioned they have a large master bedroom that she has no idea what to do with.
Their current layout looks like this:
The space is obviously large (which is my ideal master bedroom). But how should she utilize the space? After a brief study, I landed on this:
The first thing I noticed was the need to re-orient the bed to the larger wall. It's always better to be facing the foot of the bed when you enter the room. This makes the space look larger and feel more open. From there I added a desk to one end. There is plenty of room on the wall and now Bonnie can check her blog comments in the morning as she sips her hot tea. I also added a loveseat to the end of the bed, another master bedroom wishlist item of mine. Now she can read in the morning, have a place to slip on her heels before heading off to church, or feed the lovely June at 3am. Perfect right? Last, I added a rug underneath the bed. Adding rugs on top of carpet is absolutely allowed and a great way to add color and texture to the space. Are you with me? Here's a little inspiration image below:
