Master bedroom retreats are in top demand for interior projects!

Nothing says “I love you” like a soft, personal master bedroom where you can get away. Luxe fabrics, soft or deep tones, comfort throws, seating areas, and a place to settle down for some Netflix movie watching make this room of the house a personal retreat and favored spot!

Consider this hotel style upholstered master bed and lush bedding. I took this photo while at the last High Point Show in the Universal Furniture showroom for inspiration and ease in presentation to a client. The dark ceiling adds rich elegance we long for, and a collection of assorted pillows in prints adds interest and comfort. Side tables sit in front of the continuing upholstered headboard. Love! You’ll have the feeling of being at your favorite Four Seasons location in this room!


Another one of our preferred resources, Bernhardt Furniture, includes this inviting four poster bed with a combination of chic reclaimed wood and brushed metal fittings + upholstered head and footboards. Whether a master or guest room, this bedroom is layered with comfort. Pillows, coverlet and duvet all add the elements of lush relaxation. There’s something about a canopy bed that is very inviting and special. There are an abundance of such right now on the market, and our design team will be happy to show you some personal favorites. With a few guidelines from you, you’ll be well on your way to a romantic retreat.


This master bedroom is a project I designed several years ago in Michigan for a busy executive couple who spend some much-needed down time in this beautiful room when possible. Soft blues and grays, modern prints, and Vanguard Furniture‘s Cleo bed complete this room and make another inviting retreat. Beautiful outdoor vistas of the grounds and private lake create a serene scene.

These favorite Bernhardt horn chairs come into play for reading, a night cap and conversation. This is where the outside view is dreamy! The chairs are upholstered in natural hide and you’d be surprised at their comfort! *Sigh*


A former collection from the Black-eyed Susan Urban Loft was set with this #ohsosusan glamorous brushed brass canopy bed. The dark velvet headboard is complimented by the rich walnut side tables and highboy. Brass finishes are abundant in today’s interiors and they bring warmth and charm to any bedroom. I recently did my guest room in these tones and it is one of my favorite rooms of the house.

With or without the charm of historic Bucks County stone, this grouping is a charmer and very nicely priced! Call my design staff for more details. Don’t miss the Masland wool leopard area rug! Oohlala.


My guest room below; a bit brighter than real life! The next photo gets the mood and tone right. One papered wall, deep rich tones of eggplant velvet and bedding, along with rich wood tones and brushed brass tell the story. This is the only room in the house I used brass in and I embraced it with lighting, hardware, accent mirror and accessories. It’s a cozy room for a weekend getaway for guests. I love it! This collection from Universal Furniture is the same one featured in the photos above. See how a few changes in color, bed selection, and accents can make the same collection have an entirely different feel.


This is a better feel for the rich brown and plums of the room. I adore the hand-knotted Jaipur Living rug that grounds everything. Below, see the ample storage provided by the dresser as well as night stands. Note the brass stretchers at the base and the richness this finish adds to the room. Details make all the difference.


Here is a closeup of the hardware finish:


When possible, a small chair for reading, computing, or putting on your socks (!) is a needed and personal touch for a bedroom. This one, from Bernhardt Furniture, is the perfect size. Barely 29×30, it sits in the corner of the room and brings the deep, rich tones again into play. Handwoven shades were custom selected from Hartman and Forbes for privacy and finishing the windows.

I’m all set for guests, so make your reservations!


To finish the room, my Christmas gift this year from my talented and darling son-in-law, Timm, were these posh barn doors! Mirrored on the outside… rich brushed brass hardware and custom handles to die for.  I had them finished in a sleek,deep Sherwin Williams color, SW7082 Stunning Shade. It’s an #ohsosusan gray and eggplant hued tone that takes you right into the room. #purestyle


One more room shot from my market photos with this lovely Bernhardt bedroom below. The combination of deep walls, upholstered channeled headboard with nailhead trim, and hair on hide chests create a warm and inviting bedroom. Contrasting light carpet completes the look for this stylish custom bedroom.


In the example below, the romantic curved headboard hugs the occupant, and again, deep, dark painted walls bring the elegance and warmth to make this a favorite spot! Penshell accent chests give a beautiful contrast to the drama of this room. Here is a good example of added seating into the master bedroom when space allows. This is the perfect formula for a private retreat within the master bedroom.

I’ll review more lush and luxurious interiors in the next few days, so stay tuned for more of my favorite design inspirations as we approach Valentine’s Day!
