It is time for another tour around my home! Today I am showing you our master bedroom. It’s a mix of our bedroom, my home-computer-work area – I know it’s not wise to put a computer area in a bedroom because it can distract one from sleeping, but my art room in the basement kills our wifi signal due to a steel door down there – so the bedroom it is! And, this room also qualifies as a second living room. Often times, our family and my kids’ friends congregate in this space. Not sure why – maybe it’s the unique cozy fireplace or beautiful natural light that shines in – or the open space – but I’m happy they feel comfortable enough to do so!
All photos are by the talented – Becky Kimball. Details about this room: We have kept the room basic and light with warm materials & textures such as wood and sheepskin. The bed is custom built and attached to the floor. I love the mix of concrete and contrasting wood. I’ve chosen not to over-furnish this room because I like the open airy space. The chandelier is custom. The steel baseboards, and steel wall-fireplace are custom, industrial, steam punk details that contrast well with the white walls. I love custom built items, I’m actually considering having Cape Cod custom home builder come over!
With having an iPad predominantly based in my room, I’ve been considering getting a tablet holder for bed. I’d like one that would double up as a pillow so if I get tired I can have a nap! But, in all fairness, that’s not a necessity.
I have looked through so many different corner computer desks now, that I am sick of the sight of them. I finally got time to take a trip to IKEA and I managed to get hold of the perfect computer desk! I also picked up a sheepskin rug, but the mustard-patterned throw on our bed is from Interwoven. The camel colored vintage chair is from the vintage shop Tomorrow’s House in SLC. Next week I will be showing you details from our mud room and bathroom. Previous tours: living room, hallway, and the kitchen.
