HGTV Dream Home 2012: Master Bedroom Pictures

A soothing color palette inspired by the changing seasons connects the master bedroom to outdoor spaces.

The home's second-floor escape is designed as a retreat from busy gathering spaces, with its own private sitting room, balcony and queen-sized bed positioned on an axis with the master bathroom.

An upper cabinet and dresser form the room's entertainment center, with a flat-screen TV concealed behind panel doors and drawers beneath the cabinet dedicated to storage of media equipment and accessories.

A gilded, European-style chandelier, a fixture repeated in both sitting room and bedroom, lends femininity and creates a dramatic focal point.

Ductwork chases form an architectural frame around the bed. Drapery placed in the niche enhances the headboard and carves out a cozy, cocoon-like space.

A fun mix of bedding — from velvet and brocade to burlap — continues a story of luxury in the space.

French doors open out to the bedroom's own 14' x 9' balcony, which boasts views to the southeast.

An ottoman is topped with a lamb's wool throw and chrome tray inspired by the shape and design of coral.

A pocket door, flanked by gilded wall sconces, divides the bedroom from the sun-filled master bath.

A glass and iron side table cozies up to the bed. Handmade acacia-wood pillars stagger the height of decorative accessories, including a phalaenopsis orchid in a glazed earthenware pot.

A modern neutral, a brilliant copper silk throw pillow pops against a lime-green chair.

Mango wood and iron wall sconces mark the entrance to the master bathroom. The antique gold finish complements the room's grand chandelier.

Boxy, architectural shapes stand in contrast to the bedroom's artful flourishes and soft lines.

Pocket doors offer privacy between the bedroom and sitting area and, when opened, allow cool breezes to flow from front to back balcony.
