See How Coastal Accents Create the Ultimate Relaxing Master Suite
When it comes to creating a relaxing master retreat, Wendy and Greg Blackband of BLACKBAND DESIGN know exactly what it takes to make a bedroom feel like a getaway. In this master suite, they harmoniously combined soft, airy fabrics with dramatic yet soothing furnishings. It's no wonder this master retreat won HGTV's Fresh Faces of Design Master Retreats category.
Crisp White Bedroom Features Coastal Design
Crisp white walls, large windows and exposed wood beams create the perfect setting for a coastal retreat. A canopy bed and soft blue accents complete the sea-inspired look.
The architectural details, designed by Graystone Custom Builders, really set the tone for the master retreat. Exposed reclaimed wood beams add visual appeal to the vaulted ceiling. Wendy and Greg used these details as inspiration when it came to designing the interior.
Coastal Bedroom Features Lovely Seating Area
A charming loveseat in a soft blue-green hue pairs with a small white table to create a cozy seating area in this serene master bedroom. A sisal area rug grounds the space underfoot, and exposed wood ceiling beams add a rustic touch overhead.
The canopy bed takes center stage and complements the height of the patterned window treatments. "The window screens open into the room, so it was necessary for the window treatments to sit higher above the window. We loved how we played with the scale of the room with the height of the canopy and the window treatments. Everything felt proportionally balanced," says Wendy and Greg.
Reclaimed Wood Nightstand With Elegant Detailing
Reclaimed wood nightstands flank the bed in this coastal master bedroom. The nightstands, each featuring elegantly carved detailing, add authentic charm to the timeless space.
To get a true serene feel in the room, they combined softer tones with subtle pops of color and made the room feel open and airy with coastal-style furniture in the sitting nook. "A master retreat should be just that — a place where you can go to 'retreat'," they advise. "The use of softer tones keeps the space relaxing and calm while pops of color add interest without overwhelming."
Window Seat Showcases Fun Variety of Patterns
A cushioned window seat provides the perfect spot to enjoy the view in this sea-inspired master bedroom. Adorned with throw pillows and flanked with curtains, the cozy seating area displays a fun assortment of patterns.
To keep the room from feeling too monotonous, they featured 12 different fabrics throughout. Layered throw pillows in different patterns but similar shades of blue bring interest to the center of the room and pop against the crisp, white bed linens.
Stylish Patterned Throw Pillows in Shades of Blue
Layered throw pillows in different patterns but similar shades of blue create subtle interest in this calm, coastal-style bedroom. The beautiful blue pillows pop against the crisp white bed linens.
It wouldn't be a master retreat without a luxurious bathroom. The exposed beams and vaulted ceiling carry through to the master bath, and the white walls keep with the breezy, coastal theme. A reclaimed wood wall adds warmth against the all-white fixtures.
