For most people I know, the master bedroom is the last to get attention. In my experience, people first address the public spaces in their home – the foyer, living room, dining room, powder room. Then, for one reason or another, the kids’ rooms come next. It is only after the house is nearly complete that they turn their attention to the master bedroom. I am no different. I have been contemplating our master bedroom for nearly two years now (as evidenced by my post here) and it is still no closer to completion.
I think there are a couple of reasons why people, including me, wait to complete their bedroom. First, it is a room that very few see, so there is less pressure to complete the project. Second, since the master bedrooms is often shared by a man and woman, it requires more effort to create a space that has both a masculine and feminine vibe. Other rooms in a home can be much more straightforward.
While we have seen a lot of it this fall, I think that a neutral bedroom in grays and creams, with hint of blush, strikes the perfect balance in a master bedroom. It can be masculine and feminine at the same time. Here is an example of the look I am talking about.

We have furniture that is in decent shape and we are not really considering replacing it right now. But, I still would ike to change things up. For me, that means new bedding and accessories. Here are the pieces that would pull our bedroom (actually, our bed) together.
Stay tuned. Finishing this room is definitely on my to-do list for 2017.
