Nest Tour: Master Bedroom

The Master Bedroom

I love our bedroom. It is cozy and dark and cocoon-y and everything you want a bedroom to be. I swear, every morning I think it’s raining. That said, I once had an apartment where my bed was surrounded by 3 walls of windows and it was so nice to wake up with the natural light streaming around me (unless I was hungover, which only happened once, I swear.)

Anyway, the first thing you notice when you walk in is the plate wall. Sometimes I just lie in bed and stare at it. It’s like a mobile for grown-ups.

Well, that’s the Fall/Winter look. May-September it looks something like this:

Still working on my hospital corners. The headboard is from Urban Outfitters. The photographs are Catherine’s Animals. The nightstands were oddly enough the first furniture purchase I made post-college. The bird lamps were my grandmother’s with shades from Pottery Barn.

An upgrade from how it looked on move-in day, I think.

Rose-encrusted ceiling fan, I do not miss you. You have been replaced with a brass Craigslist chandelier hit with a can of plum spray paint. You can see it coyly reflected in the mirror, below.

There is another side to the room, where we keep our clothes.

The linen corkboard where I hang my necklaces is from The Container Store.

As far as the windows go, I hung some roller shades and trimmed them with pink pom pom fringe. The curtains are Ikea Ritva. The awesome lithograph was a gift from a friend by the artist and acquaintance Kong Wee Pang.

    Love the plate wall, especially against the dark wall, and the peak of the birds lamps you mentioned in a comment on my site. They look really fun! Janell

      Thanks, Janell! I met one of your editors this weekend—Lakeitha Duncan. We were in a focus group together. Small design world!

    Its like you read my thoughts! You appear to grasp a lot about this, such as you wrote the e-book in it or something. I think that you can do with some p.c. to force the message house a little bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A great read. I’ll definitely be back.
