Honey, I’m Home!: The Master Suite

7512 creekwood master

Remember this gorgeous house? I know many of you fell in love with it as much as I did when I first posted this newly-constructed home for sale in Houston a few weeks ago. After feeling completely inspired by it, but lacking the $2 million it would take to purchase and furnish the home, I decided to “decorate” the house, just for kicks, here on La Dolce Vita. I started out by decorating the study, which turned out to be a feminine, glamorous, yet sophisticated workspace in which I could theoretically blog the day away.

Next, I’ve decided to tackle the master bedroom. I knew that I wanted some dramatic pieces, like the gorgeous Pondicherry Bed with Nailheads by Serena and Lily. While grey is a color I usually like for bedrooms, I don’t typically veer towards blue, as I generally prefer warmer tones. However, the beams in the room’s ceiling call for a serene space with a bit of restraint when it comes to the use of color, so I opted for cool blue and aqua tones as an accent to the grey headboard and grey embellishments on the linens. The blue hues are further enhanced through the dramatic drapes from Pottery Barn, the gorgeous velvet upholstered bench by Windsor Smith and Madeline Weinrib rug. For the lighting, I wanted something glamorous, but unobtrusive, so I opted for these beautiful crystal pieces from Circa Lighting. If you’re familiar with my style, then you probably aren’t at all surprised that I chose these mirrored Greek key tables from Lamshop as the bedside tables. The detail is stunning and the reflective surface adds to the overall glamorous look of the space. So, what do you think? Can you envision the room?

I really like this series. It's fun imagining. The pic I like the most is the one of the window treatments puddling to the floor.

The house is very nice! I was in envy when you originally posted it. And I love that you are "decorating" the house - your choices are fabulous. I'm looking forward to the next room.
