The Path to Our Dream Home: Master Bedroom

Today we continue the Path to Our Dream Home series with our master bedroom.  To catch up, you can visit these posts: Back to the Beginning, the Main Bath, the Guest Bath, the Utility/Storage Room, the Media Closet, the Nursery, and the Little Girl's Room.  Each post tours the space in photographs, and shows how we work a lot of organization and function into each room of our small house.  There are many project ideas for each room, so none of them is ever "done", but they are all on the path to our dream home!

I absolutely LOVE my master bedroom.  I think a master bedroom should be an oasis from all the chaos of life.  The colors, furniture and layout in our master combine for a look that is very soothing to me.

As I discussed in an earlier post, six inch bed risers give us an amazing amount of storage under our California King bed.  With the furniture in its current arrangement, the large headboard covers up the bottom half of the small second window in the room.  When we arranged the furniture this way, I thought for sure I would hate the bed covering the window, but I don't actually mind it at all.  Does anyone else cover up a window with furniture?

This cane rocking chair that belonged to my husband as a boy is very special to us.  We want the kids to use and enjoy it, but it is delicate and is still a hazard for my one-year-old that is learning to walk.  This spot in our bedroom provides the perfect environment to keep it safe, but still have it out.

The closet has an organizing system that divides the rods on either side with a stack of drawers and shelves to provide storage for clothes and shoes.  Since I only have two long dresses (one of which being my wedding dress), we have double rods on both sides of our closet, providing plenty of hanging space for me and my husband.  Since our bathroom is small and lacks storage and counter space, I use one shelf of the closet to house toiletries.

Between our dressers and closet, as well as some containers under the bed for off-season clothes, we are able to neatly store all of our clothing in our bedroom. As for entertainment in the bedroom, we are able to access the full library of movies and videos and watch internet television via a laptop connected to our network.  For more details on how we organize our media, read this post on our Media Closet.

As in every room in the house, I have projects in mind for this room, so I'm sure we'll revisit this space!
