When we built our home, I was hopeful that having a downstairs master bedroom would not mean an uncomfortably small space. And while I did have to eliminate one piece of furniture, I was pleasantly surprised to love the room’s size. It’s compact, but it’s perfect for us.
I tend to take credit for the first floor plan because I remember drawing it out on graph paper. But I don’t think I created the small hallway separating the bedroom from the main living space. I’m going to give our draftswoman all the props here!
There’s something calming about walking this passageway when entering the bedroom. Even though a mere ten feet separates us from the rest of the home, we know a retreat awaits.
A small corner offers just enough space for my slipcovered chair. I’m thinking I need to spend more time in this cozy spot! I got an exciting revelation for my small business when I sat awhile and did some reading. I wrote about my booth design in the last post- that all came to me here!
I purposefully chose a minimalistic style for our Master Bedroom. The colors are neutral with the exception of a blue striped accent pillow and a coastal blue oyster painting above the headboard. There are few accent pieces, so unless it has a special meaning to us, it’s not going to be a part of the space that serves as an oasis.
Another hallway that houses two closets (guess whose is bigger!) separates the bedroom from the bath. Again, I do not mind at all that the space is a dramatic decrease from our last house.
We included a double-headed shower done in white subway tile. Having a window for natural light is an absolute must in my book. And the view is of our little pool in the backyard. And the setting sun, which puts on a dramatic display over the river nearby.
Thank you for touring the Farmhouse Master Bedroom! On your way out, give Woodrow a pat on the head and maybe toss his toy for him!
