Home Tour Series: Master Bedroom
If you have been reading my Home Tour Series you’ll know that I tend to start my room tours off with “this room is one of my favourites” and I’ve come to realize while writing these blogs is just how much I really do love my home (even with the deficiencies and nuances that drive me crazy!), I’m truly grateful for it. And to continue the tradition … I’m going to share my master bedroom details with you today … and this room is … ONE OF MY FAVOURITES!! LOL!!
Our bedroom isn’t a huge room, it’s just big enough to fit a king size bed, two side tables, and a dresser! Some people like to make their master bedrooms so massive that you can fit a fireplace and a sofa in them but that’s really not my style, I like my bedrooms to be cozy … not so big that you feel lost in them!
As far as furnishings go, mainly everything in this space is from The Cross Decor & Design, I had decided to partner up with them to style my bedroom as they have the most beautiful, romantic decor, hands down. Like my pink bed, for example! LOL! I’m sure some of you are sitting there wondering how the hell I was able to convince Justin to agree to a pink bed, and, well, I convinced him that pink is an aphrodisiac () and that he would get more “you know what” if we had it in our bedroom … and needless to say, he fell for my wicked ways!! LOL!! It’s worth giving it a try ladies …
I absolutely love our side tables from The Cross, they fit perfectly on either side of our bed and they have a secret drawer at the top to store your electronics and to plug in your phone! And how about the beaded chandelier?? It’s actually named after Shay and it’s so dreamy, it really puts the finishing touch on our room! Also, I know MANY of you have asked where you can get my metal “Goodnight” sign, and you can find it on Etsy, here!!
I’m obsessed with all of the natural light in the space, I’ve always seemed to have bedrooms that have only one or two small windows so when I had the chance to design our room in this home I wanted to make sure lots of light could flood in. So, we installed two big french doors from Plygem and if this wasn’t enough, we also added two sidelights on either side of the french doors! This gives us an entire wall of windows which is framed by beautiful linen drapes from Q Design which is a total dream come true!
The sun has been rising even earlier lately (thanks to this long-awaited warm weather!) so Justin and I have been getting up around 6 am as the sun pours into our room … and the best part about waking up to the sun is the fact that is that Leo’s room has blackout blinds so this tends to buy us a good 30-45 mins of alone time each morning before he gets up!!
In addition to a natural alarm clock, there’s really nothing better than waking up to the sunshine in the morning and looking outside your window and catching the sunrise … or the snowfall (I know, we don’t want to talk about winter right now … but it’s so pretty!). We actually planted a mini orchard right off the deck and I can’t wait to look out onto these when they start to bloom! We can also see the pool from our room along with a little peekaboo view of the lake!
Our bedroom in our last house had wainscotting halfway up the wall and I loved it so much that I decided to carry it on through to this home, special thanks to the team at Metrie who was able to pull this off for us! The flooring in our master bedroom is the same flooring we have throughout most of the house, which is Cinder from PurParket. All of the spotlights are from Sylvania, and as far as paint goes, we went with Cloud Cover by Benjamin Moore!
We decided to carry the beams from Urban Roots Furniture into our bedroom, you’ll find the same ones in our living room, kitchen, and dining room and I’m in love with them. I find the older I get, the more I love a rustic feel … I think I’ll likely have beams everywhere in our next home! The framed pictures in our hallway are from Framebridge, one of my favourite things to do is to walk past these photos with Leo and look at them, I love having framed images of special moments and people that I love hanging where we see them every day.
Moving on to the walk-in closet, this is actually the first and the biggest walk-in closet I have ever had and obviously, now I’m addicted to them! I feel like no walk-in closet is ever pegged as “too big”. Walk-in closets are like fake boobs … once you have them, you always want to go bigger! LOL! I’m not speaking from experience but that’s just what I’ve heard!! LOL!
I love the dressers on either side of our walk-in closet, one is designated for my things (such as swimsuits, maternity jeans, underwear … you name it!) and the other is for Justin’s items! I also love the cabinetry in this space, it was definitely a must-have as I really wanted a place to store my heels and Justin’s cowboy hats and that’s exactly what we got thanks to Clarice Maidment from Kelowna Home Image Interiors for designing them and to Kelowna Innovative Cabinets for bringing them to life.
I don’t actually use the upper cabinets much because they are so tall and I can’t really reach them so I like to display seasonal items up there along with my regular pants in the baskets as I’m currently only wearing maternity ones until this October! If I had to break it down, I would say that about 1/3 of our walk-in closet is Justin’s … and the rest is mine … LOL! The windows in this space are also from Plygem and the roman shades are from Q Design!
