Master Bedroom Before

December 10, 2009

Check out the master bedroom now.

At the end of the hallway from the main living area, you enter the master bedroom. Straight ahead is the window that mirrors the one in the living room. This one looks into the blue spruce in the back yard. To the left are the his-and-hers closets with an alcove between them.

Here’s the view through the window into the backyard. Not a million-dollar view, but definitely a selling point.

To the right from the doorway is the bed. We were lucky to have my mom’s best friend Monique meet us in Milwaukee to look at houses with us. When she saw these clerestory windows in the master bedroom, she thought of a bed her parents had in their basement that would fit perfectly under the windows.

When we moved in, Monique disassembled the bed, packed it into her husband’s truck, and drove it to Milwaukee from her home in Michigan. It’s a mid-century piece with built-in nightstands and drawers under the bed. It fits perfectly with the color of the trim and doors in the house, and its low-slung shape seems made for the space under the windows. Thank you, Monique!!!

The duvet cover is the West Elm Organic Cotton Pin-Tuck Duvet Cover in sea spray. The bedside lamps are IKEA Antifoni work lamps in silver.

From the bed, here’s the view of the closets and alcove. The dresser is Nathan’s childhood dresser. Above the dresser you can see some paint swatches of colors we were considering.

This is the view out the window when sitting on my side of the bed.

On the right is Nathan’s closet, and to the left of that is the door back to the hallway.
