Our Renovated Master Bedroom

Our 1950's beach cottage has an addition 
built in the 1980's over the garage.  
It is spacious and light filled.
After photo
Here is what we did to make it our own retreat...
I wanted it to feel peaceful 
with creams, whites, soft blues and crystal...
Before Photo
Before we moved in...not bad but we needed
more efficient windows and new flooring.
Also, we wanted to build a wall across here to 
make a more intimate bedroom and 
carve out a home office.
I have posted about my new office here.
Rocky approves.
This leads to the bathroom...

You can read more about the new bathrooms here.

We kept the gas fireplace where it was and 
cleaned it.  It's nice that it is higher so that you 
can see it from the bed.
Big television for Howard...ah, well, compromises.

I will include more details about the renovation 
(paint colors, materials, sources, etc.) in an upcoming post.

Thanks for visiting!

  26. I love your master bedroom and I love the soft colors and the wood beamed ceiling. Thanks for the great info you pass along on your wonderful blog.

  27. I love what you have done here. Fine work indeed. The remodeled master's bedroom is exquisite and is a dream concept.

  28. Excellent job. I'd love to this in my own bedroom, though I'd add a little more Victorian elements to it.

  29. I agree with the comments. You did an excellent job in renovating your rooms. I like what you did on the master's bedroom. It looks very minimalist. I'd love to have a bed just like that.

  30. Thanks for all the details! Your bedroom is just gorgeous! Love the large monogrammed pillow. Love the subtle wall color and how the lines and the rug work together. Very nice!

  31. The bedroom looks amazing and gorgeous. The time and efforts you spent really paid well. I wish I had that kind of room. Anyway, in renovating a house, let's not take for granted the outside part. It is important to secure the house and the family.

  32. I like the simplicity of the color and design of your room. The color of the wall and linen complemented with each other very well. Those kinds of furniture and other accents can really add beauty to a master's bedroom.

  33. That's beautiful. Your bedroom reminds me of apartments for rent near brussels. They have both exquisite and elegant designs. I think the property is worth the purchase.

  34. Your master bedroom is gorgeous! So luxurious!
