HGTV Dream Home 2013: Master Suite Bedroom Pictures
Inspired by sand, sea and beachcombing adventures, the master bedroom offers a quiet escape from the home's social spaces.
A canopy poster bed, fashioned from mindi wood with Parson-style posts and a horizontal planked headboard, serves as the room's focal — and jumping off — point for the room's design sensibility.
Pops of tidal blue break up the room's sea of neutrals and carry out a theme of beachcombing and early-morning seashore strolls.
Embroidered Egyptian cotton bedding and linen corded pillows lend hotel-style luxury and provide visual interest in a room defined by muted tones.
With private deck access, early morning coffee, marshside, is a treat for the homeowner or guests.
Lined floor-to-ceiling drapery along with custom blinds offer both privacy and a continuation of the room's story of textures.
A steel floor lamp provides shimmer in the room's reading nook, where floral prints, exotic orchids and dark wood surfaces pair successfully. A handwoven wool dhurrie rug is layered over the room's wall-to-wall carpeting to offer an additional layer of texture and interest.
A vintage-style display cabinet, complete with European-style window hardware, houses a 48-inch flat-screen TV. Curtains, fashioned by carpenter David Brown, keep technology under covers.
A contrast to more tailored, masculine forms — and taking its design cue from French fashion — a linen throw pillow incorporates cord work, soutache embroidery and tulle florettes.
A carpeted, 6- by 3-foot walk-in master closet offers shelving to store folded clothing and hanger rods for business attire and formalwear.
Concealed discreetly behind curtains hand-fashioned from custom drapery material, a 48-inch flat-screen TV offers a home theater experience.
Antique-style furnishings lend a lived-in look. A serpentine-front cabinet stands in as both a nightstand and clothing and linen storage unit.
Rustic Italian stoneware nestles in an antique-style serving tray — ready for breakfast in bed or brunch on the master bedroom's private deck.
Within easy reach of the master suite bathroom, this haven for rest and relaxation boasts side yard views and a sandy color palette reminiscent of Kiawah Island beaches.
A natural fan coral, whitewashed and mounted on a linen mat, references the home's coastal location and continues the room's subtle theme of beachcombing treasures.
Gourd-shaped table lamps flank the bed and make a sophisticated design statement that stands in contrast to the classic forms of wood furnishings.
