Like the majority of people, I am worn out by the end of the work week. By Friday, it is very important to me to have a place of calm and relaxation when I get home. For this reason, I wanted to ensure that my master bedroom got the proper decorating treatment to help me unwind.
I love the beach and wanted to reflect that sense of peace the beach brings where I sleep. It starts with the right color palette and a blue-green color on the walls mimicked the ocean. I chose gray and white linens, textile, and accent furniture to give a clean/crisp feeling, like what you find in a beach house. Orange is a complementary color to blue and I accented the room with orange sparingly.
The accessories were a little tricky. I looked for decor items that had a nautical theme and carefully filtered to keep the room from looking kitschy. With a careful editing eye and a pair of uniquely shaped floating shelves, I achieved the oasis I was seeking.
