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.

Neutral carpeting offers soundproofing and a soft padding underfoot.

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.

A classic table desk with elegantly turned legs provides both a workspace and display surface for nightstand essentials.

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.
